A delegation of the Telangana Rashtra Samiti on Wednesday called on Governor E.S.L. Narasimhan to demand the dismissal of Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy and imposition of President’s rule in the State due to the deteriorating law and order and lack of control over administration.
The delegation included senior leader K. Keshava Rao, MPs M. Jagannatham and G. Vivekanand and several legislators led by Etela Rajender.
Mr. Vivekanand told media persons on the occasion that Mr. Kiran Kumar Reddy was sending “false reports” to the Centre on the political turmoil in the State. This was vindicated by the words of ex-Director General of Police V. Dinesh Reddy. The Chief Minister was the force behind the ongoing agitation in coastal districts.
In the memorandum submitted to Mr. Narasimhan, the TRS said the Chief Minister provided financial and logistic support to the strike by employees.
There was constitutional breakdown in the State because of the “biased functioning” of Mr. Kiran Reddy. The party demanded an inquiry by the Central Bureau of Investigation into charges of corruption, particularly against a brother of Mr. Reddy. He made no attempt to avert the strike by electricity employees which pushed the State into darkness.
