Deccan Chronicle - - POLITICS - DC COR­RE­SPON­DENT HY­DER­ABAD, OCT. 13

Home min­is­ter Nayani Narasimha Reddy de­nied the al­le­ga­tions of Congress MLA A. Re­vanth Reddy that he was not given an ap­point­ment by care­taker Chief Min­is­ter K. Chan­drasekhar Rao. Speak­ing to the me­dia on Sat­ur­day Mr Nayani said he was in touch with CM over the phone.

Clar­i­fy­ing his ear­lier state­ment, Mr Nayani said that by mis­take he had said `10 crore in­stead of `5 lakh to `10 lakh of­fered by Mr Rao in the pre­vi­ous elec­tions. He said that the de­feat of Mr Re­vanth Reddy in Ko­dan­gal was cer­tain in the up­com­ing assem­bly elec­tions. He said he was ex­pect­ing the Musheer­abad Assem­bly con­stituency ticket for his son-in­law Mr Srini­vasa Reddy.

Mr Nayani said Mr Rao had re­fused to give Musheer­abad ticket to him in the 2014 Assem­bly elec­tions and had of­fered LB Na­gar ticket which he re­fused. He said, “As I had re­fused to take LB Na­gar ticket, Mr Rao had promised to make me an MLC and take me into the Cab­i­net. If Musheer­abad ticket is de­nied to my son-in­law, Mr Rao must have some al­ter­na­tive in his mind.” He de­nied all spec­u­la­tions of him join­ing the Congress and said that all his po­lit­i­cal life, he has been anti-Congress.

Mean­while, Pan­chayat Raj min­is­ter Ju­pally Kr­ishna Rao al­leged that Congress lead­ers in their three-day cam­paign in Ma­habub­na­gar district had said all lies.

He asked if it was the Congress which granted Te­lan­gana state­hood, why was it de­feated in 2014 Assem­bly elec­tions. Ju­pally said that he has given po­lit­i­cal life to Ms D.K. Aruna in the district.

He said Ms Aruna con­tin­ued in the N. Ki­ran Ku­mar Reddy Cab­i­net that op­posed Te­lan­gana state.
