Geetha not ST; should quit

Hyderabad, March 12: YSR Congress has
demanded the de-recognition of Araku MP Kothapalli Geetha as she does not
belong to the Scheduled Tribes and demanded her immediate resignation. 

‘After the district administration has
ruled that her brother was not an ST, she has no moral right to continue as MP
from the quota seat of Araku and it should be vacated to give a genuine person
to represent the adivasis of the constituency which runs into four districts of
the state,’ Party MLA Giddi Eshwari told reporters here on Saturday.

 The East Godavri district Collector has
ruled that her blood brother was not a ST and the same rule applies to her as

Geetha, who switched over to TDP, had
given a certificate taken from the MeeSeva and her application for considered
for the candidature of Araku MP.

 As her true colours are now exposed, she
should quit on her own and we will also take up the issue at appropriate
forums, she said.
