TTD Chairman Y V Subba Reddy on Sunday responded to the audio recording of a lurid conversation allegedly between SVBC Chairman & YSR Congress Party leader Balireddy Prudhvi Raj ("30 years" Prudhvi of Tollywood) with a woman employee.
Stating that the issue came to his notice only this morning, Reddy said that he had already ordered an inquiry into the audio recording by the TTD Vigilance Wing.
He also said that he would apprise Chief Minister Jaganmohan Reddy after receipt of the inquiry report and initiate necessary action.
Subba Reddy said that he had spoken to Pruthvi Raj, and that the latter had pleaded innocence and alleged that his rivals might had concocted the conversation to defame him.
For the uninitiated, this morning a recording purportedly of the SVBC Chairman speaking with a woman employee went viral. According to the recording, the actor-turned-politician indulged in romantic conversation with a woman employee saying he loved her very much and wanted to hug her in the office.
Earlier, Prudhvi Raj had also made controversial comments on the Amaravathi farmers and actor Posani Krishna Murali. Chief Minister Jagan reportedly expressed his displeasure over Prudhvi Raj's insensitive comments. However, Prudhvi Raj reportedly agreed to resign from the SVBC post.
