Accusing former chief minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy’s son-in-law Bro. Anil Kumar and daughter Sharmila of amassing thousands of crores of rupees in the name of religious campaigning, the BJP has demanded cancellation of the allotment of a four-acre land to them at Manikonda, near the city, made by the government at the request of Gessoes of Najar Ministry.
Addressing a press conference here on Sunday, party spokesman NVSS Prabhakar said the couple, taking advantage of YSR’s position, made huge money illegally by investing just around Rs 150 crore in several business organisations in the state.
After Rajasekhara Reddy became chief minister, Anil became director of 11 business organisations and Sharmila of eight. Besides, Anil receives huge money from several countries for the purpose of religious campaign and has violated rules and regulations in money transactions.
Demanding that Anil declare his assets as they stood before and after YSR’s ascendance to power, the BJP leader appealed to the state government to order a CBI inquiry into Anil’s activities without any delay. He said he suspected that because of Anil factor the YSRCP did not move a no-confidence motion against the Kiran Kumar Reddy ministry.
“If the chief minister fails to act against Anil and Sharmila, people will be forced to construe that Kiran and Jagana are hand in glove.’’
Claiming that he was ready to prove his allegations against Bro.
Anil with documentary evidence if the government ordered a CBI inquiry, Prabhakar said he was also ready for an open debate with Anil and Sharmila or YSRCP leaders anywhere in the state.
