Naidu is playing Section 8 politics : Tummala
HYDERABAD: Reiterating that law would take its own course in the “cash for vote” scam case, Industries Minister Tummala Nageswara Rao today said that AP Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu was talking in a foolish manner and belittled himself at the national level.
Addressing the media at TRS Bhavan here on Thursday, Tummala launched a scathing attack on Naidu for behaving in an unethical manner and failing to give clarity on the episode.
“Chandrababu is making politics by citing Section 8 of Andhra Pradesh Reorganization Act to enforce governor powers on law and order in Hyderabad”, he said. He also slammed Naidu for his comments that Rao Government would collapse the next day of his arrest. With these comments, it is clear that Naidu is all set to destabilize and topple the TRS Government elected democratically, he said.
“It is not correct to the stature of Naidu, who seems to have lost values and put to shame the Telugu people. Raking up a non-issue of Section 8 of AP Reorganization Act, cunning Naidu was trying to divert the attention of the people from his bribery attempt case and to escape. It is not possible for Naidu to escape”, he said and expressed anguish for adopting double standards on audio tapes and Revanth episode.
A case will be filed against those who commit crime whether it is Naidu or any other bigwig, he said. Despite making efforts at Delhi, there was no chance of his going scot-free, he asserted. Naidu, who says audiotape was doctored was still not giving clarity by remaining tightlipped on the voice of audiotapes, he said.
The TRS Government has nothing to do with the phone tapping, he said. The ACB is investigating into the episode and will come out with more details on the involvement of the Telugu Desam leaders, he charged. (NSS)
