Sanjay sticks to his guns, demands KTR\'s scalp over question paper leak
HYDERABAD: BJP state president Bandi Sanjay on Friday reiterated his charge that there was a deep-rooted conspiracy behind the TSPSC question paper leak, and declared that Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao’s silence “speaks volumes about the issue.”
Addressing a protest meeting against the question paper leaks at the Martyrs Memorial opposite the Legislature, Sanjay stuck to his demand of sacking IT minister K.T. Rama Rao from the Cabinet “as the leaks were a result of absence of IT security.”
Sanjay alleged, “it is because of Rama Rao’s inefficiency as the IT minister that the question papers were leaked. Rama Rao also has a role in the land scams being perpetrated through the Dharani portal.”
He said: “The BRS government is playing with the lives of 30 lakh unemployed youth in Telangana and while lakhs of jobless youth and their families are agitated over the question paper leaks. Meanwhile, practically the entire state cabinet was in Delhi trying to protect and save one person who is involved in the Delhi liquor scam.”
Sanjay said, “Irregularities and scams have become the hallmark of the BRS government. It failed to keep its promise of providing ‘neellu, nidhulu, niyamakalu’.”
Sanjay also flayed the setting up of a Special Investigation Team for probing the TSPSC question paper leaks. “The SIT will sit and stand as per KCR’s directions. If the Chief Minister is sincere about getting to the bottom of the case, then he must order a probe by a sitting judge,” the BJP state president said.
After the protest, Sanjay, accompanied by BJP leaders Etala Rajendar, Boora Narsaiah Goud and G. Premender Reddy, attempted to march to the TSPSC office but the police thwarted the effort and arrested them. The arrests were roundly condemned by many BJP leaders including party general secretary Tarun Chugh and vice-president D.K. Aruna. The police later let off Sanjay and the others.
