The High Court of Telangana today sought a clarification from former Siddipet district Collector P Venkatrami Reddy on his alleged remarks over the sale of paddy seeds in that district.
The court today heard the contempt case against him.
Representing the government, the Advocate General informed the court that Reddy would apologize in that regard.
As the Collector, Reddy had reportedly said, while warning paddy seed distributors against selling the seeds in the district, that he would get their shops shut if they didn't fall in line, and that he would not care for High Court or even Supreme court orders on the issue.
The remarks had caused a furore, and the High Court issued a contempt notice to him.
After the AG informed it that Reddy would apologize for his comments, the court posted the case for four weeks later.
