KCR meets Governor to discuss political ramifications
- KCR flays Naidu on section 8
HYDERABAD: Chief Minister Chandrasekhar Rao today called on Governor Narasimhan at Raj Bhavan and is said to have discussed on political ramifications of cash-for-vote scam.
Rao is learnt to have raised objection to AP Government for its insistence on section 8, own security and erecting separate police stations in Hyderabad.
This meeting assumes significance in the wake of Narasimhan holding talks with High Court Chief Justice on Monday probably on the use of section 8 and situation that demands it.
Earlier, ACB Director General Khan, DGP Anurag Sharma and other intelligence officials have called on Rao. They are said to have apprised the chief minister to further the case by issuing notices to others involved in scam. It is said that Rao informed to the Governor on the need for issuing notices to Naidu who cannot escape from the case as per legal norms.
Rao is said to have stressed the need for furthering the probe by ACB which served notices to TDP leaders Venkata Veeraiah and Vem Narender Reddy for their involvement in the scam, besides touching upon Stephenson’s version at the Nampally Court. Rao strongly resented the pressure tactics of Naidu on the use of section 8 of Andhra Pradesh Reorganization Act.
As the government is providing complete protection and security to the people in Hyderabad, so far, no single incident had been occurred, Rao said in the meeting. Complaining against Naidu for filing 87 cases in the residual state, he gave it to special investigation team to inquire. (NSS)
