Andhra Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister K.E. Krishnamurthy has exuded confidence that TDP MLA arrested on the charges of 'cash for vote' will come out unscathed.

Asked if the A. Revanth Reddy episode had affected the ruling party's image, Mr. Krishnamurthy, who convened a media conference to recount the achievements of Revenue Department in the last one year, initially said that it was not the platform to speak about the issue.

However, he said it was a complicated matter and there were several aspects to it. He recalled that the Telangana Chief Minister K.Chandrasekhara Rao believed to have told some of his party MLAs that they would hear one sensational news one hour before the arrest of TDP MLA Revanth Reddy in a sting operation by the sleuths of Anti Corruption Bureau.

The visuals of the sting operation were also released to some media channels soon after. Indicating that it spoke volumes about the involvement of Mr. Chandrasekhara Rao in the arrest of Mr. Revanth Reddy, the Deputy Chief Minister wondered how could Telangana Home Minister Nayani Narasimha Reddy say that the A.P. Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu would also be made an accused in the case.

Land pooling: 33,000 acres

All this pointed to the conspiracy hatched by the TRS to defame the TDP leaders. Listing out the achievements of Revenue Department in the last one year, Mr. Krishnamurthy also took credit for the successful mobilisation of 33,000 acres under land pooling for the Capital City. About 130 Revenue Department officers including 30 Deputy Collectors and 50 Tehsiladars worked for Capital Region Development Authority and mobilised the land in three months.

On documentation of agreement for only 16,000 acres so far, he said agreement documentation would be completed for the remaining 16,000 acres soon. " We will convince them if they have any issues," he said.
