Hyderabad: Making it clear that the party has no intention to target late Dr YSR’s family, the Pradesh Congress Committee chief, Mr D. Srinivas, has said that if the party wanted to do so, it could have done it in many ways. The PCC was appointing a Committee to inquire into the just-concluded Local Body MLC elections and the Committee would submit a report to the PCC soon.
Talking to the media at Gandhi Bhavan here on Wednesday, Mr Srinivas said that the State government has agreed to appoint a House Committee to look into irregularities, if any, in the land allotment during YSR regime. He also said that the former chief minister, Mr N Chandrababu Naidu, too has a role in allotting lands during his regime.
Asked as to why the House failed to adopt a resolution on Telangana issue though the members demanded it, Mr Srinivas said there was no link between appointment of House Committee and adopting a resolution on Telangana issue. He also made it clear that there was no match-fixing between the Congress party and the TDP on appointing a House Committee. The House Committee would find out whether there were any irregularities during the TDP and YSR regimes, he said, adding that Congress and TDP governments were involved in allotting the lands.
On the Agriculture Minister, Mr Y S Vivekananda Reddy’s resignation, the PCC Chief said that Mr Vivekananda Reddy might have submitted his resignation to the Chief Minister as a formality because his term as an MLC was over on Tuesday. He also said that the Chief Minister would ask Mr Vivekananda Reddy to continue as a Minister.
The PCC chief revealed that the PCC official spokespersons would address the media regularly from Ugadi as earlier. He also said that the Flagship Monitoring Committees’ review meeting would be held on April 2 to kick up their activities. He said that the Committees would tour the district vigorously in April.
