Ex-DGP calls Kiran a back-stabber

Hyderabad: Oct 8, 2013 DHNS

 After enjoying power for two and half years as head of police forces in the state, former DGP V Dinesh Reddy has now turned against his one-time mentor Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy, after he was denied renewal of his post.

A week after demitting office, Dinesh Reddy on Tuesday termed Kiran a backstabber. He even went to the extent of saying that the chief minister wanted him to state that the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh would strengthen the Maoists.

“I refused to budge in. I did not want to allow the APNGOs public meeting at the LB Stadium in Hyderabad, but the chief minister forced me to accord permission. He pulled me up for requesting the Centre for additional central forces to control the agitation in the Seemandhra region after the CWC decisions,” Dinesh Reddy said.

The former DGP summoned the media here on Tuesday morning and launched a tirade against Kiran Kumar Reddy. Dinesh Reddy accused the chief minister of conspiring to remove him from the DGP post.  “He humiliated me, betrayed me and back-stabbed me by issuing my superannuation order two days before my retirement,” the former DGP said.

Following Dinesh Reddy’s press conference, BJP state president Kishan Reddy said that the chief minister’s camp office has become a nerve centre of the Samaikyandhra stir. Telangana Rashtra Samithi MLA, K T Ramarao, took potshots at the chief minister, claiming that he has now been exposed for his bias towards the Seemandhra region.

K T Ramarao had earlier claimed that it was Kiran Kumar Reddy who claimed before the Congress core committee that the division of the state will encourage Naxalism.
