The Congress leader asked KCR whether the latter was ready to address a letter to PM Narendra Modi to order an inquiry into the assets of both by a sitting judge.
Hyderabad | 29th September 2018
Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) working president A Revanth Reddy alleged that the IT raids that took place on him were a part of a conspiracy by the state and central governments.
TRS leaders were resorting to attacks on Congress leaders to come to power again since they knew they would not win fairly, he said. He also claimed that caretaker Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao was passing his days in Pragathi Bhavan in fear.
Speaking to the media at his Jubilee Hills residence where the IT raids were conducted for two days, Reddy said that his relatives had purchased his Jubilee Hills residence. He also said that bank loans had been taken in 2014 for the construction of the house.
Finding fault with the publicity against him in the media that he had businesses in Malaysia, Singapore in benami names, Reddy said that one needed to be a citizen of those nations to open accounts there. He lamented that the reports in the media were causing trauma to his family. He asked the media to compare his assets placed before the Election Commission in 2009 and 2014, and said that he hadn't purchased any assets after 2009.
Reddy said that he had mentioned his assets located at Gopannapally, Vattinagulapally, Kondareddy and Kodangal in the election affidavit. He said that his wife's father was a kerosene dealer, and had lands in Hyderabad from before 1992. He also said that his uncle was born rich, and had a one-acre land in the centre of Hyderabad. And the persons who were staying in his house as tenants had launched companies but the ruling party leaders were campaigning that those companies belonged to him.
He thanked the Congress party activists for extending their support to him day and night to expose the conspiracies of the government. He also thanked party leaders N Uttam Kumar Reddy, K Jana Reddy, Ponnam Prabhakar, D K Aruna and the Komatireddy brothers.
Announcing that he was ready for an inquiry by a sitting judge into his assets, Reddy threw a challenge at KCR asking whether his (KCR's) family was ready for the same. He asked KCR whether the latter was ready to address a common letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to order an inquiry into the assets of both by a sitting judge. He said that he was giving 24 hours to KCR to address such a letter to Modi, failing which it would be clear that KCR was corrupt.
Reddy also claimed that some unidentified persons had been trailing him for the last nine months, and that he had lodged a complaint with the Jubilee Hills police quoting the vehicle numbers of those unidentified persons, but that the police had not even filed an FIR in this regard. He alleged that the police didn't care about his complaint though he had worked as an MLA and in various other positions.
