HYDERABAD:After a brief pause, the Andhra Pradesh government seems to have once again begun taking steps to corner former ministers Dharmana Prasada Rao and Botcha Satyanarayana by reopening the scams that had taken place during their regime and also in which these two leaders had faced corruption allegations.
The Cabinet sub-committee, set up to review controversial decisions taken by the previous Congress governments, headed by Finance Minister Y Ramakrishnudu, on Thursday decided to initiate action against those responsible for violations in granite mining leases granted during previous Congress regime at Kannedhara Konda in Srikakulam district.
“When officials brought to the panel’s notice that the lease was given to former revenue minister Dharmana Prasada Rao’s son against the interests of tribal people living in the hilly region, the panel directed the officials concerned to take immediate action in this regard,” the AP government said in a statement.
According to sources, excise officials submitted their report on liquor cases. The GoM directed the officials to prepare a report on the liquor scam in which the then transport minister Botcha Satyanarayana had faced allegations and present it in the next meeting.
