YSRTP chief YS Sharmila, on Thursday, slammed Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao alleging that he was the richest politician in the country and his government was steeped in corruption.

YS Sharmila said this after meeting Governor Dr Tamilisai Soundararajan.

She submitted a memorandum to the governor on the attack on her convoy allegedly by TRS supporters to the governor. Dr Soundararajan had earlier expressed anguish after police towed away Sharmila’s car while she was still inside.

After meeting the governor, Sharmila said that not only the liquor scam but every scam in Telangana should be investigated including the Kaleshwaram project from which vast a amount to the tune of Rs 70,000 crore was siphoned off. She also demanded an inquiry into real estate scam accusing the chief minister’s family of sitting on a land bank.

Sharmila also fiercely defended herself on the issue of her Andhra ancestry pointing out that she was born here, studied and grew up in Hyderabad and got married to a man from Telangana and both of her children were also born here.

The TRS has been criticising her pointing out that till the last election, she had voted in Andhra Pradesh. She retorted wondering where KT Rama Rao’s wife hailed from and then went on to ask TRS supporters if they were asking for a divorce.

The TRS has accused Sharmila of being a covert ally of the BJP who started the padayatra at the behest of the saffron party.
