Jeevan Reddy writes to President against KCR and Naidu

HYDERABAD: Lashing out at both Telangana and Andhra Pradesh Chief Ministers Chandrashekar Rao and Chandrababu Naidu, respectively, Congress MLA from Jagtial, Jeevan Reddy, on Wednesday demanded the President Pranab Mukherji to order CBI inquiry into both chief ministers’ corrupt politics.

Jeevan Reddy addressed a letter to the president in this regard and urged him to initiate steps to stop deteriorating constitutional values in Telangana.

In his letter, Reddy alleged that TRS Chief Chandrashekara Rao, who spoke of democratic and constitutional values during the struggle for Telangana, did not stick to his proclaimed commitment to democratic values.

Rao encouraged defections of MLAs and MLCs from Congress, Telugu Desam and other parties to his TRS Party, he said and alleged that in this drama of defections all the legal constitutional requirements were thrown to the winds.

In the wholesale defection activity, Rao has exhibited contempt for the constitutional and legal process, leave alone moral values, he said. There are number of petitions filed before the speaker questioning the defections of members to TRS and their consequent disqualification under the law of defections. The inexplicable delay in initiating proceedings of defections by the speaker is casting a shadow on the constitutional values in the state, Reddy alleged.

The situation in the state touched a new low in politics of Telangana, he said. The elections to the Telangana Legislative Council proved the same. Andhra Pradesh chief minister was in direct talks with an MLA exhorting him to vote for his Party by offering a bribe of five crore rupees through MLA Revanth Reddy to a nominated MLA Elvis Stephenson. Naidu’s involvement is proved, and he is guilty of encouraging defections. The evidence against Chandrababu is unimpeachable, he said.

The Congress Legislature Party (CLP) Deputy Floor leader in Telangana Legislative Assembly alleged that both the chief ministers were behaving like dacoits and demanded CBI inquiry and opined that it would only bring out their political corruption. (NSS)
