Harish slams Naidu and his officers for serving notices to T channel
HYDERABAD: Telangana Irrigation Minister Harish Rao today slammed Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu for sending his police officials to serve a notice on Telangana Channel at late night with regard to cash-for-vote episode.
Addressing the media here on Saturday, Harish Rao accused Naidu of creating a non-issue of Section 8,and said that its imposition was not at all required now. The Centre, he said, should intervene in the issue for raking up the issue only to divert his involvement in the Revanth Reddy episode, he alleged.
a�?We will complain against Naidu and his police officials to Governor Narsimhan against the notices issued on the T channel and seek necessary action. Section 8 is necessary only when there were attacks on the freedom of the people and their assets in the city,a�? he said.
Though no such an incident has taken place so far, Naidu was deliberately insisting on the use of Section 8 only to divert the main issue of his involvement.
Afraid of the noose and to escape from the case, Naidu has appointed Gandhi, former chief of Forensic Lab, he alleged. Naidu should prove his integrity if he has guts and come out with clarity, he demanded.
a�?We are not ready to keep quiet in this regard, and the law will take its own course. Naidu is known for sabotaging against Telangana developmenta�?, Harish charged.
Instead of giving clarity on the cash-for-vote row, Naidu was trying to dominate on Telangana State, where he has no say, he said. Hyderabad is just a common capital for time being until the AP Government builds its capital, he added. (NSS)
