Vijayawada West MLA Vellampalli Srinivas demanded Mylavaram MLA Devineni Umamaheswara Rao to prove allegations that he has been levelling against him in connection with the Bhavani Islands.

Addressing a press conference here on Monday Mr. Srinivas refuted the allegation that he also had shares in the company that leased out Bhavani Island for development.

He said that he was ready to resign from the Legislative Assembly if the allegations made by Mr. Rao were proved. But in case Mr. Rao failed to prove the allegations he made the Mylavaram MLA should resign from the Legislative Assembly, he said. The PCC secretary Kolanukonda Sivaji said the TDP MLA had forgotten what the TDP government did during its regime. The Krishnaveni Motel being run by the Tourism Development Corporation was handed over to a private firm. The prestigious Canal Guest House was also given to a private firm.
