Nakrekal MLA Vemula Veeresham, whom the Congress leaders accused of having a role in the murder of Boddupalli Srinivas, said he was willing to face any inquiry to prove his innocence.
Mr. Veeresham in a strongly-worded press conference here on Tuesday said he will launch a legal battle against the Congress leaders for propagating false news against him, tarnishing his image and self-esteem.
“Is it because I am a Dalit? A senior Congress leader even suggested that I should be killed in an encounter like (renegade Naxalite)Nayeem,” he said.
Legal aid to be sought
The Telangana Rashtra Samithi would seek legal advice and approach the court, he added.
Describing the actions of the Congress leaders in the aftermath of the murder of civic chief’s husband as ‘drama’, the MLA said the Congress was indulging in “politics over murder of Srinivas for political gain.”
Terming his political life and earlier personal life as an ‘open book for everyone to see’, Mr. Veeresham alleged that the murder was a conspiracy of the Congress. “A narcoanalysis on Nalgonda MLA Komatireddy Venkat Reddy will reveal more inside details,” he opined.
‘Check call records’
The MLA said he was ready to reveal all his call records in detail for the crime investigation.
Also present at the press conference was Forest Development Corporation Chairman Banda Narender Reddy, who said the TRS was ready to debate with the Congress over facts, but not support ‘murder politics’.
Pointing out that the death of Boddupalli Srinivas would not politically benefit the TRS party, he said all its leaders expressed sympathy and conveyed condolences to the bereaved family.
