Telangana ACB, intelligence chiefs meet KCR

Hyderabad, June 4 (IANS) Telangana’s Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) Director General A. K. Khan and intelligence chief Shivadhar Reddy on Thursday met Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao.

The meeting assumed significance in the wake of reports that Telangana government is planning to nail Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu in the cash-for-vote scandal.

They are believed to have discussed the ongoing investigations into the sensational case.

The meeting was held a day after Telangana Home Minister N. Narasimha Reddy claimed that the government has proof against Naidu.

The ACB has sought the custody of Telangana’s Telugu Desam Party (TDP) legislator A. Revanth Reddy, who was arrested on Sunday.

Revanth Reddy was nabbed while offering Rs.50 lakh to a nominated member of the assembly as part of the Rs.5-crore deal to make him vote for a TDP-BJP candidate in election to the Telangana legislative council.

The Telangana home minister has claimed that Naidu spoke to nominated MLA Elvis Stephenson over phone and that police have an audio record of the alleged conversation. He said he has evidence that Naidu spoke to some MLAs of the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS).

TRS leaders have been demanding that Naidu should be included as the main accused in the case as he is the mastermind.
