WARANGAL: TDP state president L Ramana has demanded a CBI probe into the decisions taken by CM K Chandrashekar Rao during his tenure as Union minister.
Addressing a press meet along with TDLP leader Errabelli Dayakar Rao, L Ramana said: “The Chief Minister had helped the cigarette industry with orders to print cancer scares on beedis while he was the union minister in the UPA government.”
If the CM was corrupt as a Union minister, he will be corrupt as a chief minister as well, added Ramana
Meanwhile Errabelli Dayakar dared the CM to see that the MLAs who joined TRS will resign and go to polls.
He also questioned why TRS was not ready to face the corporation elections in Warangal and Hyderabad.
Alleging that TRS government has managed to remove around eight lakh voters from the voters’ list in Hyderabad, he said that the government has made GHMC commissioner Somesh Kumar, a scapegoat.
L Ramana said, the leaders of both BJP and TDP were scheduled to meet again on Sunday or Monday to finalise the candidate for the Warangal byelection.
Meanwhile, leaders of the YSRCP decided to field its candidate for the Warangal byelection. MP Ponguleti Srinivas Reddy, MLA Payam Venkateshwarlu and Warangal party district leaders have attended the meeting. It is said that the party candidate may be announced on November 3 or 4. “Our party candidate would file his nomination on November 4,” said MP P Srinivas Reddy.
He said that party will go to the public with the welfare schemes and development works done during YSR’s rule.
