Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee president and Nalgonda MP Capt N Uttam Kumar Reddy on Friday demanded Chief Minister to disqualify four MLAs from the Assembly who have allegedly involved in a drugs scandal.
Addressing the media along with AICC official spokesperson Dasoju Sravan and Telangana Fishermen Congress chairman Mettu Sai, Uttam Kumar Reddy said that the Bangalore police have recorded the statement of a prominent businessman who said that four MLAs of TRS were involved in the drug scandal.
He said that as per the information he has the names of those four TRS MLAs involved in the Bengaluru drugs case. He said sources in Bengaluru have informed him that the MLAs have taken drugs in the party in collusion with the Bharatiya Janata Party leaders and has been trying to cover up the case.
Hence, the state BJP leaders are also been helping TRS in this regard. “If BJP was not colluded with the TRS, why it has not been bringing pressure on the Karnataka government to take up action on the four MLAs,” he questioned adding that the abuse of drugs by the four MLAs was perfect ground for disqualification of MLAs from Assembly. He said that they would meet the Governor and submit a memorandum in this regard soon.
He reminded that in the past two MLAs of Congress have been disqualified from the Assembly for no rhyme reason from Assembly. “Now the TRS MLAs has brought disgrace to the state by getting involved in the drugs scandal. Why the Chief Minister did not disqualify them? It is shame on the government,” he criticized.
