Sack Uma; order probe into charges

Hyderabad, Nov 21: In wake of the close
confident of Chandrababu Naidu spilling the beans on the irregularities in the
irrigation works, YSR Congress has demanded the dismissal of the concerned
minister, ordering an inquiry and blacklisting the companies involved.

‘CM Ramesh considered to be a close
confident of Chief Minister has written an open letter detailing the
irregularities in irrigation works and releasing the funds which tantamount to
misuse of public funds, we demand that the Irrigation Minister Devineni Uma
Maheswara Rao be sacked and an inquiry ordered into the deals and blacklist the
companies involved,’ party spokesperson Tammineni Sitaram told reporters here
on Saturday

The irregularities that were brought to
light pertain to Owk Reservoir and the estimated cost was escalated from Rs 12
crores to Rs 110 crores and funds were released. This is a gross misuse of
public money and merits a thorough probe after dismissing the concerned minister,
he said.

‘The payment of Rs 44 crores was in
violation of the agreement and the irregularities should be checked
immediately, the TDP MP had written in the open letter. We have been time and
again pointing out the irregularities and the kickbacks and corruption in
various deals and now an important leader of the ruling party himself has come
out in the open to expose the irregularities,’ he said

The Government has been posting
officials who are not cooperating with their unethical agenda to non-focal posts
with Mr Joseph and LV Subrahmanyam being the recent victims,’ he said.
