Nalgonda Congress MLA Komatireddy Venkat Reddy has said he was the only MLA who spoke on corruption in the Assembly.
In an informal talk in the Assembly lobbies on Thursday, Venkat Reddy alleged that Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao was not implementing schemes on pretext of paucity of funds though the Opposition parties were mounting pressure on the State government. He pointed out that the State government had spent Rs 20,000 crore on pipes for the Mission Bhagiratha Scheme and the TRS leaders were getting five percent commission from the companies.
“I don’t know why the State government finalized only three companies though 14 pipe companies are ISI branded”, he pointed out. He also exuded confidence that the Congress leaders would expose the TRS government’s corruption and defeat the TRS in the 2019 elections. (NSS)
