Congress leader Ravichandra Chouhan alleged that former union minister and senior Congress leader Renuka Chowdhury had deceived several Congress leaders by promising them MLA tickets but not coming through.
Among the several leaders that Chowdhury took money from was Dr Ramji Naik from whom she took Rs. 1.3 crores in 2014. And when he asked her to return the money, Chowdhury lodged complaints against Dr Naik, Chouhan said.
Speaking to the media, Naik's wife Kalavathi alleged that Chowdhury took the money from them promising the Waira constituency ticket. Kalavathi lamented that Chowdhury was not returning the money though they had asked her for it several times.
She said that she would meet AICC chief Rahul Gandhi and lodge a complaint with him during the latter's visit to Hyderabad on August 13 and 14. She also said that she would stage a dharna at Delhi she was unable to meet Gandhi here. She made it clear that she would not stop her fight till Chowdhury returned the money.
