Will Continue Struggle Till Facts Come Out In Miyapur Land Scam: Cong Leaders
New Delhi: The Telangana Congress leaders clarified they would continue their struggle till the facts come out in Miyapur land scam. Speaking to media on Thursday, they demanded a CBI enquiry over the issue. They expressed anger over Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh who gave them an appointment for discussing the issue and later cancelled it. The AICC general secretary Digvijaya Singh alleged if the BJP government is trying to save TRS government for supporting their candidate in Presidential elections. “It is unfortunate that BJP government is on the back foot regarding an enquiry into allegations levelled against TRS leaders in this scam,” Digvijaya said.
Since lands belonging to Centre were also involved in the scam, Digvijay said that the Centre can order for CBI enquiry without the recommendation from the State government. More: Miyapur Land Scam: Congress Counters KTR’s Allegations on Media
