Leader of Opposition in Telangana State Legislative Council Mohammed Ali Shabbir on Saturday asked Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao to disclose the names of people, who donated money for Ayutha Maha Chandi Yagnam and recent publicity drive for Telangana Rashtra Samithi.
Addressing the media at Gandhi Bhavan here on Saturday, Shabbir Ali said the Chief Minister, who had claimed he received donations to the tune of Rs 7.5 crore for the Yagnam, must reveal the entire list of donors. KCR should also reveal the list of people, who provided funds for massive publicity campaign in Greater Hyderabad by engaging thousands of hoardings and flexes, he added. “KCR must clarify whether he accepted those donations in the capacity of Chief Minister or the TRS President.
“He can also furnish details before the Income Tax Department. We will get a copy by filing an RTI application,” he said. He also demanded that MIM president Asaduddin Owaisi reveal sources of income that enabled his party to take up publicity campaign. “MIM leaders collect donations to organize public meeting Jalsa-e-Rahmatul Lil Aalameen on the occasion of birth anniversary of Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) every year. They have crores of rupees to spend on publicity. He also accused KCR and Asaduddin Owaisi of hurting sentiments of Muslims through one of their hoardings. Both KCR and Asaduddin Owaisi should apologise for this act,” he demanded. (NSS)
