TRS Leader Srinivas Reddy Told To Pay Wife Rs 20k PM

The Ranga Reddy district court ordered TRS leader Srinivas Reddy to allow his estranged wife Sangeetha into his house and to pay her maintenance.
Hyderabad | 11th January 2018
The Ranga Reddy district court at Miyapur on Thursday ordered TRS leader Srinivas Reddy from Uppal to allow his wife, Sangeetha, into his house, and also pay Rs 20,000 per month towards her expenses.

Sangeetha was reportedly driven out of the house by Reddy, his second wife and her in-laws when she tried to enter the house after leaving a few months prior to the incident to go live with her parents. The TRS leader had married another woman when his wife was away.

With Reddy not allowing her in, Sangeetha, along with her four-year-old daughter, had been sitting in front of her husband's house in Boduppal for the past 54 days. While Reddy and his parents were absconding, she had converted the front yard of the house into her residence. Following no action by the police against her husband, she had intensified her agitation by turning it into a fast-unto-death a few days back.

After several efforts to strike a compromise between the estranged couple had failed, the police moved the case in court which issued an interim order directing the TRS leader to allow his wife and child into the house immediately and to pay Rs 20,000 towards their monthly maintenance.

However, Reddy filed a counter in the court contesting his estranged spouse's demand for maintenance amount. "When she is in my house and I am taking care of her needs, where is the need for maintenance?" he asked in his counter.

Speaking to the media following the court order, Sangeetha said that she would enter her husband's house in the presence of all. She also demanded that her husband and in-laws show some concern for her daughter.

Refuting allegations that she had demanded Rs 3 crores as compensation from her husband, she said that she had not gone on a fast-unto-death for the sake of money but for her legitimate rights. She also claimed that property was not important to her and that all she wanted was her rightful place in her husband's house.

She said that there had been no response to her deeksha from her in-laws yet, and that the issue would be solved if only her husband and in-laws spoke with her.

A few days ago, when the TRS leader's wife had launched her fight against her husband and in-laws by observing the dharna at his house with support from the city's Mahila Sangham, many leaders, irrespective of their political affiliations, had extended their moral support. Retired judge Chandrakumar, former Union minister Sarve Sathyanarayana and Malkajgiri MP Malla Reddy, too, had called on her and pledged to stand by her.
