Hyderabad: Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao is expected to break his silence on the recent raids by central agencies on TRS leaders while addressing a public meeting in Mahabubnagar on Sunday, according to party sources.
Rao did not react to the recent I-T and ED raids on the properties of ministers Ch. Malla Reddy, Gangula Kamalakar, Talasani Srinivas Yadav, party Rajya Sabha member V. Ravichandra and MLC Kalvakuntla Kavitha's name figuring in ED remand report in the Delhi liquor scam.
Ministers and TRS leaders, however, have charged the BJP-led government at the Centre of misusing central investigation agencies to target the TRS after the Chief Minister 'exposed' the BJP's attempts to topple the TRS government by purchasing its MLAs recently.
Party sources said that he will speak on these raids during the public meeting, his first since the Munugode public meeting on October 30, in which he presented the four MLAs who were the target of the alleged Poachgate.
