Denying reports that he had gone underground, Sreeramulu told reporters here: "I have not been served any notice by CBI. If CBI gives me notice, I will cooperate with it in the investigations. I am not an absconder as sought to be projected by the media."
Sreeramulu, who submitted his resignation as MLA to Speaker K G Bopaiah on September 4, ruled out withdrawing it. "I have communicated my views to the Speaker", he said but did not elaborate.
CBI has arrested Janardhana Reddy and his brother-in-law Srinivasa Reddy on September 5 in connection with alleged illegal mining.
