Hyderabad, Dec 20 – Former BJP MLA Raghunandan Rao on Tuesday demanded CBI inquiry into Kaleswaram project corruption. Talking to the media party state headquarter here today, Rao raised questions regarding Chief Minister Revanth Reddy’s reluctance to order a CBI inquiry into the alleged corruption case related to the Kaleswaram project.
Rao pointed out that despite repeated requests from the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG), the state government has not provided details about the Kaleswaram project.
He highlighted that Revanth Reddy himself had previously demanded a CBI investigation into Kaleswaram and accused Chief Minister KCR of looting lakhs of crores in the name of the project. Rao questioned the sudden lack of initiation for a CBI investigation and urged Revanth Reddy to clarify his stance on the matter.
Rao expressed suspicion about the Congress party’s intentions, suggesting a conspiracy to limit the Kaleshwaram project to Medigadda. He called for a comprehensive inquiry into the entire Kaleswaram project, labeling it as the most significant corruption committed by an individual since independence.
Rao reminded that Revanth Reddy had previously written a letter to Union Home Minister Amit Shah, claiming to possess evidence related to the case. He now called on the Chief Minister to submit the documents he holds in his capacity.
The media conference was attended by BJP state spokesperson Venkat Reddy, state secretary Umarani, Rana Pratap, and other party members.
