Senior Congress leader and Rajya Sabha member V Hanumantha Rao on Tuesday reiterated his demand that the CBI should question MP KVP Ramachandra Rao, who was the soulmate of former chief minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy, basing on arrested IAS officer BP Acharya’s comments on KVP’s role in the Emaar scam.

Addressing a press conference here on Tuesday, the senior Congress leader said that he would meet the CBI officials on his demand and explain about BP Acharya’s comments on KVP.

He recalled Acharya as saying that though he had done every thing as per the rules the CBI was repeatedly questioning him while it was not doing the same in the case of KVP.

Some other accused in the case also expressed the same opinion, Rao said.

If KVP was questioned, the facts and evidences related to the case would come out which would help the agency to investigate the matter properly and bring to book the real scamsters.

 On the other hand, he urged the party high command to rethink on utilising YS Rajasekhara Reddy’s name for party programmes as it would be counter-productive and only help strengthen YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s leadership in the state.

 He suspected KVP of working in this direction.
