HYDERABAD: TDP TS unit working president A Revanth Reddy on Wednesday wrote letters to Union home ministry, Central Election Commission, CBI and TS ACB, asking them to take action against IT minister KT Rama Rao, TRS MP K Kavitha and other ministers who raised money for the public meeting organised by TRS in Warangal in April by working as ‘Gulabi Labourers’ (Coolies).


In his complaint, Reddy recalled that KTR had raised `7.5 lakh, T Harish Rao earned about `8 lakh whereas MP Kavitha earned `7 lakh. Likewise, some other ministers had raised money too. “Many of these public servants, who took oath not to benefit anybody while discharging their official duties, collected money from organisations and persons which come under their regulatory control.

For instance, C Laxma Reddy collected money from a private hospital and P Srinivas Reddy took money from rice miller,” he complained. Hence, the TDP leader urged the authorities concerned to initiate suitable action against these public servants as per the provisions of the Prevention of Corruption Act.
