The TRS leadership today denied any involvement in the cases against Congress leader A Revanth Reddy. It also demanded that the Election Commission disqualify Reddy from contesting the forthcoming elections given the disproportionate assets investigations going on against him.
Addressing the media at the TRS Legislature Party office along with Gattu Ramchandra Rao today, TRS MP Balka Suman said that the TRS leadership had urged the Election Commission to disqualify Reddy from contesting the elections for misguiding the Commission on his assets. He sought to know why the Congress failed to respond to IT notices against Revanth Reddy on July 14, but was making such a brouhaha now and blaming the TRS for the raids.
Suman denied as baseless allegations that the TRS was behind the IT raids on Revanth Reddy's houses and elsewhere. "There is no truth in the comments that the caretaker government is resorting to vendetta politics," he said. "The TRS leadership has nothing to do with the IT raids, which are happening in routine course. The raids are justified as Revanth Reddy has amassed wealth in hundreds of crores by illegal means."
Suman also described Revanth Reddy as a ganja plant in the tulsi garden of Telangana, and the Congress as a "gang of thieves" which was forging an unethical alliance with other parties as it could not fight alone. The TRS would sweep the elections with a thumping majority, Suman claimed.
