Dr Kandakatla Manohar was on 27 August 2015 appointed as the Director of Nizams Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS) of Hyderabad. His appointment was approved by the Telangana Government. He succeeded Dr L Narendranath.

Manohar is a native of Penchikalapeta of Warangal district and is working as the Superintendent of the MGM Hospital in Warangal.

Background

In 2014, a writ petition was filed in the AP High Court, questioning the government's decision to appoint Dr L Narendranath as Director of NIMS. Petitioner Dr RJ Bhaskar claimed that the appointment of Dr Narendranath was in violation of Rule 3 of the minimum qualifications for teachers in Medical Institutions Regulations, 1988.

Dr Narendranath never worked as professor of orthopaedics or head of the department for five years as required under the MCI regulations. The minimum qualifications prescribed by the Medical Council of India are binding on all medical institutions in the country.

Following this, the hospital witnessed protests from doctors belonging to Telangana. However, Narendranath refuted all allegations and continued in his post.
