HYDERABAD: In a move that has caught A.P. Congress circles in surprise, senior MLA of the ruling party V.Purushottam Reddy has lashed out at Chief Minister Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy for the `lax administration and scandals that have become the order of the day".

Speaking to the media at the Assembly on Wednesday, Mr. Purushottam Reddy said not a single day had passed under the Congress rule without some scandal getting mentioned in newspapers.

However, there was just silence on part of the Chief Minister and the administration in denying any of those, giving room to the suspicion that there could be some truth in the reports.
