Hyderabad, Sep 23 (UNI) The Andhra Pradesh Congress Legislature Party (CLP) today ridiculed Telugu Desam Party (TDP) president N Chandrababu Naidu's proposed two-month-long agitation against corruption from October two.
Addressing a press conference here, AICC Secretary and MP V Arunkumar, in the presence of state transport minister Kanna Lakshiminaryana and Legislative Council members, he said the TDP chief had not faced inquiries on corruption charges levelled against him during his tenure as Chief Minister.
Mr Arunkumar demanded that Mr Naidu get the stay orders, obtained by him on the cases filed against him, vacated and face inquiry before commencing his agitation against corruption in the state.
Claiming that the state government was functioning in a transparent manner, he said Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy had either ordered a CBI or judicial inquiries on the allegations made by the opposition against the government.
The TDP had failed to prove any charges against the government, including allegations on Volkeswagon cars, murder of TDP leader Paritala Ravi, Outer Ring Road project and irrigation projects, he added.
He alleged that Mr Naidu had obtained stay orders to stop inquiries on three cases -- liquor scandal, Yeleru scam and disproportionate assets case -- filed by Lakshmi Parvathi, wife of TDP founder president late N T Rama Rao.
Stating that the government had conducted open discussions on 58 irrigation projects at 48 places with experts to prove the government's transparency, he said instead of making wild allegations against the government and its leaders, the TDP should come out with documentary proof, using the Right to Information Act (RTI).
Demanding that TDP should reveal how much documentary evidence, they had collected so far from the RTI, he said the TDP was making baseless allegations against the government due to frustration as they had no concrete proof against the developmental and welfare schemes, launched by the government for the benefit of people.
