The way Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao spending over two hours at Raj Bhavan on Tuesday evening to hold discussions with Governor E S L Narasimhan and Anti-Corruption Bureau director general A K Khan joining the discussions between KCR and Narasimhan, followed by Union minister Sujana Chowdary’s meeting with the Governor has given rise to a lot of hush talk in political circles.
Apparently, KCR and his officials besides Sujana Chowdary are understood to have discussed the issue of bailing out Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu in the cash-for-vote scam, which is now being re-investigated as per the ACB court.
“There is something fishy in the meetings with the Governor. The briefings should be made public as they are of public interest and not that of constitutional affairs,” YSR Congress party leader Botsa Satyanarayana said.
“The sequence of events clearly point out that the discussion by Union Minister and TDP leader Sujana (YS) Choudhary with the Governor after having a meeting with BJP national president and Union Finance Minister close on the heels of a local court directing a reinvestigation into the cash for vote is not about special status as was told to the press,” he said.
“We demand that Raj Bhavan should not be a plank for political intrigue and any matter of public interest discussed with the Governor should be made public by his office through a statement. Special Status is not an issue to be discussed at Raj Bhavan by a Union Minister,’ he said.
