KHAMMAM: A press conference arranged at the Press Club here on Wednesday by the followers of Congress MP Renuka Chowdary to refute the charge that their leader had taken money from Ramji of Wyra for securing party ticket to contest the Wyra (ST) Assembly seat, ended abruptly on a sour note with Ramji’s wife and her relatives barging into the venue and entering into an argument with them.
Renuka’s followers Saidulu Naik, Syam Naik, Pullaiah and others said she had not taken money from Ramji for arranging party ticket for him. They alleged that some people were instigating Ramji’s wife Kalavathi to speak against the MP.
While the press meet was in progress, Kalavathi and her sister Nandini, along with relatives, entered the venue and picked an argument with Renuka’s followers. This led a mild tension for some time.
Later, Kalavathi told Express that she had the proof and placed it before the High Court. She said she had been receiving threatening calls on the phone and lodged a police complaint. She said she was trying to get AICC president Sonia Gandhi’s appointment to explain the matter.
Later, Saidulu Naik lodged a complaint with the police against Kalavathi and her relatives, saying that they had tried to attack him.
