HYDERABAD: Telangana  Joint Action Committee chairman M Kodandaram has come to the rescue of TRS secretary-general and Rajya Sabha member K Keshav Rao who is facing allegations of involvement in the Miyapur land scam.

A day after opposition parties alleged that Rao’s family had purchased precious government and private lands at Dandu Mylaram in the city by joining hands with Goldstone Prasad, who is the key accused in the scam, the TJAC chairman on Sunday accused the state government of making a selective leak to the media against Keshav Rao.

“Its an official leak given by the top brass of the government. In fact, several influential persons and government’s heads are behind the scam relating to lands worth `10,000 crore. Small officers are being made scapegoats while bigwigs behind it are allowed to go scot-free,” Kodandaram alleged.

While addressing mediapesons here, the TJAC chairman demanded that a comprehensive probe by a sitting judge be ordered into the scam to ascertain facts.

The TJAC would hold a round-table meet in Hyderabad with advocates over this issue soon, he added.
