Congress leader and Kodangal MLA A Revanth Reddy today stated that there were no cases against those belonging to Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao's community in spite of their complicity in huge scams.
He also said that any cases lodged were quickly withdrawn, and demanded that the CM make the evidence that led to the withdrawal of 125 corruption cases in the state, public, if such withdrawals were indeed legitimate.
Speaking to the media, Reddy said that Telangana was second to none in shielding corrupt officials. He said that it was representative of the state of affairs in the state that no case was booked when a municipal chairperson disclosed that IT Minister KTR had himself advised them to take 2% bribes in every work. He also alleged that the state government had protected KCR's relative and Kukatpally ACP Sanjeeva Rao who had amassed properties worth several crores through corrupt practices, as also Dr Adisheshagiri Rao, head of a department in NIMS who allegedly indulged in corrupt practices, also because he was KCR's relative.
There was also no case when TRS MLA Vemula Veeresham offered a bribe in a phone conversation last year, no inquiry into the corruption charges in KTR's ministry's works in the construction of T-Hub.
Alleging that there was political conspiracy in the ACB review meeting yesterday, Revanth Reddy said that KCR was trying to re-open the case against AP Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu, who called upon the people to defeat the BJP for harming Andhra Pradesh, at the behest of the BJP.
