Ratnaprabha, a former IAS officer and former Karnataka chief secretary, is reportedly under consideration for the by-elections to the Tirupati Lok Sabha on behalf of BJP and Janasena.
A native of the Prakasam district in AP, she has served in various government departments.
In particular, she served as Collector of several districts in Karnataka, Secretary of various departments, and Chief Secretary to Government. She also worked in Andhra Pradesh.
After retiring she served as Chairperson of the Vocational Skills Authority. Ratnaprabha, who has made a name for herself as a firebrand, seems to have the idea that the leaders of both parties are in a position to confront the YCP head-on.
According to credible sources, both parties want to persuade her and put her in the ring. Ratnaprabha’s father Katti Chandraya, husband Vidya Sagar, and brother Pradeep Chandra served as AP cadre IAS officers.
