Rainwater In Jagan's Assembly Chamber: CBI Probe Ordered

Andhra Pradesh Speaker Kodela Siva Prasad Rao visited the Assembly and, suspecting that someone had deliberately cut pipes to let rain water in, ordered a CBI probe.
Hyderabad | 7th June 2017
YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) MLAs on Wednesday staged a dharna at the Assembly complex main gate in Velagapudi after marshals refused to allow them to enter the Assembly to uncover facts on how rainwater leaked into the chamber of their party president and Leader Of Opposition Y S Jaganmohan Reddy on Tuesday.

After rains at Amaravathi on Tuesday, rainwater entered Reddy's chamber. Aghast over that, the YSRCP legislators wanted to find the reason for the leakage. As part of a fact-finding mission, the Opposition legislators, led by MP Appa Rao and A Rama Krishna Reddy, went to the Assembly complex along with print and electronic media personnel. They wanted to inspect their leader's chamber and the Assembly complex.

However, the marshals refused to allow them to step into the Assembly premises, leading to tense atmosphere at the media point. With the marshals sticking to their guns, the Opposition members sat in a dharna at the Assembly main gate with black cloths around their mouths. After an hour, they left the place.

Later, Legislature Secretary Satyanarayana informed the YSRCP MLAs that the Speaker's permission was needed to allow the media into the Assembly complex.

Talking to the media, Rama Krishna Reddy pointed out that Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu had said that the capital city was being constructed by Singapore companies on par with international standards, but that rain water had leaked into Jaganmohan Reddy's chamber for as long as it was raining, and with just a little rain. The Assembly staff needed to use buckets when water was gushing from the roof into Jaganmohan Reddy's chamber, he said derisively.

Meanwhile, Speaker Kodela Siva Prasad Rao accompanied by officials inspected the Assembly complex and concluded that there was a conspiracy behind the rain water leaking into the Jaganmohan Reddy's chamber. He expressed strong suspicion that some mischief-mongers had cut water pipes to let rain water into the building, and said that he had ordered a CBI probe into the water leakage.
