Etela Wants Probe Against Naidu in Revanth’s Case
HYDERABAD: Launching a scathing attack on TDP chief and AP Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu for pressing Revanth Reddy to offer huge amount to nominated MLA Elvis Stephenson to favour Telugu Desam in MLC elections, Finance Minister Etela Rajender today demanded that legal action be initiated against the former for hatching a conspiracy.
Addressing the media along with Energy Minister Jagadish Reddy at Secretariat here, Rajender said Revanth should be stripped off legislator post for his arrest by ACB sleuths while offering 50-lakh rupees to Elvis Stephenson.
With Revanth’s arrest, it was proved that the Telugu Desam is a brokers’ party and its chief was orchestrating ‘dirty politics’ in Telangana using corrupt money from Andhra Pradesh, he said.
Rajender alleged that the Telugu Desam party was known for selling political posts, and it was already exposed that Naidu did so by taking 30 crore rupees from Sujana Chowdhary and CM Ramesh. The people of both Telugu states are keenly watching the nefarious activities of Naidu, he charged.
The finance minister also sought a thorough investigation into the entire episode in which Naidu reportedly spoken with the nominated MLA Stephenson. Rajender also accused Naidu of getting envious as Rao’s Government for making rapid strides in all sectors, he said.
Telangana leaders would not keep quiet if Naidu failed to mend his ways, he warned. (NSS)
