The BJP has so far announced names of 136 candidates out of the 230 assembly seats in MP.
The Telangana Rashtriya Samiti (TRS) seems to have borrowed a leaf from the BJP’s book when it comes to fixing opponents.
While Telangana GST officers, on Monday, searched the premises of Sushee Infra and Mining Company owned by the family of Komatireddy Rajagopal Reddy, who had contested the recently concluded Munugode bypoll as a BJP candidate, the Hyderabad civic body bulldozed some illegally-built structures in Deccan Kitchen, a fine dining restaurant yesterday which belongs to Nanda Kumar, one of the accused in the MLA poaching case.
The officers were investigating complaints of tax evasion in companies that are related to Reddy. They conducted searches from 11 am at the headquarters of the company at Banjara Hills and also at the residences of company’s MD Sankeerth Reddy, who is the son of Rajagopal Reddy and other directors. Apart from Sushee Infra and Mining Company two more companies Sushi Arunachal Highways Limited and Sushee Chandragupt Coal Mine Private Limited also share the same premises.
Recently, Sushee Infra and Mining Company was in news after it won Rs 18,000 crore mining contract in Jharkhand. The TRS and Congress had alleged that Reddy who had won Munugode as a Congress candidate in 2018 had agreed to switch to BJP after winning the contract. Days before the bypoll TRS had complained to EC that as BJP’s candidate Reddy’s company had transferred money to the tune of Rs 5.22 lakh into the accounts of local BJP leaders for distribution among voters.
Meanwhile, the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) has razed to the ground some illegal structures built in the Deccan Kitchen belonging to Nanda Kumar, the accused in MLA poaching case. Kumar had leased the property located in Filmnagar.
Meanwhile the four TRS MLAs who were being allegedly lured by the three accused to switch sides to BJP have complained to police that they were receiving threatening calls from unknown numbers and lodged four separate complaints indifferent police stations across the state.
