TDP cadres file cases against KCR

Enraged TDP leaders and activists filed cases against Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao in Andhra Pradesh a day after a reported conversation between Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu and Elvis Stephenson,Anglo-Indian MLA of the TRS, was made public.

While TDP MLA Uma Maheshwar Rao filed a complaint in Vijayawada, Telangana wing of the party filed a complaint before the state Human Rights Commission saying that the TRS government has been tapping phones of people of Andhra Pradesh (AP) who are living in the common capital, Hyderabad.

An FIR was also filed against Rao at three police stations in Visakhapatnam by one N V V Prasad.

Addressing a mammoth rally to commemorate the first anniversary of the TDP government, Naidu said: “If you (Rao) have an ACB I have an ACB too. If you are a CM, I am CM too. Hyderabad is capital for both states for a decade, so people of AP have every right to stay there.”

Stating the need for vesting law and order with the governor, Naidu said the TRS government has been targeting people from AP living in Hyderabad.

Earlier, K T Rama Rao, Telangana IT minister and son of K Chandrasekhar Rao, dared Naidu to take a lie-detection test in presence of live TV cameras after the TDP complained that Rama Rao was involved in horse trading. 

“It seems that Naidu is trying to portray an issue of bribing an MLA as an inter-state tussle, but he cannot escape by instigating AP people,” said Rama Rao. TDP MLA Revanth Reddy, who was interrogated for the third consecutive day at the ACB’s office here, is said to be down with fever and fatigue.

“The ACB is treating him inhumanly. He was made to sleep on the floor, not allowed to take prescribed medicines,” Sudhir Reddy, the MLA’s advocate said.

Sources in the ACB said that the MLA is not cooperating and they make seek an extension of his custody which ends on Tuesday. YSRC chief Y S Jaganmohan Reddy met Governor E S L Narasimhan and complained against Naidu and will be meeting President Pranab Mukherjee on June 9 to apprise him on the developments.

Meanwhile, with Naidu inaugurating his camp office in Vijayawada on Monday, the process of shifting at least few offices from Hyderabad seems to be taking shape.
Party sources said that Naidu may stay in Vijayawada at least three to five days a week to bring the administration back on its feet.
