Former Telangana Rashtra Samithi MP and presently labour minister in the Telangana cabinet Ch Malla Reddy has landed in deep trouble over the leakage of an audio tape in which he was heard demanding money for issuing party tickets for the candidates in municipal elections.
The audio clips, which went viral in the social media, revealed that Malla Reddy and his son-in-law Marri Rajasekhar Reddy were demanding lakhs of rupees to give TRS party tickets.
He said the audio clip was of a telephonic conversation between Malla Reddy and his son-in-law with ticket aspirants.
The audio clips are learnt to have gone to the notice of TRS working president K T Rama Rao, who reportedly pulled up the minister for selling party tickets. The party has found itself in the most embarrassing situation.
Taking advantage of these audio conversations, the Congress leaders lodged a complaint with the police demanding that a case of corruption be registered against the minister.
All India Congress Committee (AICC) Spokesperson Dr Dasoju Sravan sought to know whether seeking money to give party ticket was not corruption.
He appealed to the Anti-Corruption Bureau to register a suo motu case against the minister and his relatives.
He said some aspirants have also spoken to media accusing the minister of demanding huge amounts.
He said when ACB could arrests employees for demanding money, why was it silent when a similar crime was allegedly being committed by a minister, he asked.
The Congress leader also demanded that Election Commission take against Minister Errabelli Dayakar Rao who intimidated the voters by saying that he would come to know whom they have voted for in the municipal elections.
