As predicted and often projected by the TDP the tentacles of corruption reigning even in the Kiran Kumar Reddy government has at last surfaced.
The issue of disposing off rare red sanders has prompted former Minister P.Shankar Rao to approach the High Court to file a public interest litigation (PIL) seeking CBI inquiry.
Dr.Shankar Rao has named Chief Minister N.Kiran Kumar Reddy as one of the respondents in the writ petition along with Forest Minister S.Vijayarama Raju, Environment and Forests Special Chief Secretary Janaki R Kondapi, Chief Secretary, Principal Chief Conservator of Forests and Environment and Forests department Principal Secretary.
The petitioner alleged that issuance of GOs in March last year and disposal of this red sanders caused huge loss to the public exchequer. Serious allegations were made against the Chief Minister too.
He sought a direction to the CBI to conduct preliminary inquiry as the issue involved was more than Rs.1,800 crore. The case would be numbered and would be listed before the appropriate Bench after the registry scrutinises the papers and finds these papers to be in order.
It was the TDP leader K.Yerran Naidu and Shankar Rao's petition that had nailed the massive Q P Q deals by Jagan in YSR government.
