Hyderabad: TPCC campaign committee chairperson Vijayashanthi doubts whether TRS working president K.T. Rama Rao has taken permission from his father Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao before challenging the BJP to prove corruption in the Kaleshwaram irrigation project.

In a statement, Vijayashanthi said that BJP national working president J.P. Nadda has alleged corruption in projects initiated by CM Rao’s government and Mr Rama Rao has challenged the BJP to prove the allegations.

Vijayashanthi said that all the opposition parties, including the Congress, had alleged that Globarena, the company involved in the Intermediate results fiasco, was responsible for the suicides of students who were wrongly assessed and that the TRS’s top leaders are connected to Globarena.

She said Mr Rama Rao had challenged the opposition to prove those allegations too.

The President of India had noted the complaints made to him and had asked the Chief Secretary of the Telangana government to send him a report after making a thorough enquiry. “CM Rao had been shocked at these developments and alleged a conspiracy by opposition parties,” said Vijayashanthi.

Instead of attributing conspiracies to the opposition parties, Mr Rao should ask his son why he was challenging the opposition to prove the allegations, Vijayashanthi said.  She said Mr Nadda should submit the evidence of corruption to the Centre and make the central government order an enquiry into corruption in the state government just as the BJP did in the students suicides issue.
