INDIA: Telangana Chief Minister Kalvakuntla Chandrasekhar Rao produced evidence against BJP for allegedly trying to topple democratically-elected governments in non-BJP-ruled states. KCR carried out a sting operation with the help of state police and shared the video on social media.
Rao held a media interaction and shared video files and other proofs related to the conversation between three accused, Ramachandra Bharati from Faridabad, Nanda Kumar from Hyderabad, and Simhayaji Swamy from Tirupati, alongside four TRS MLAs Pilot Rohit Reddy, Guvvala Balaraju, Rega Kantha Rao and B Harshavardhan Reddy.
The alleged BJP workers tried approaching the TRS team at a farmhouse on the outskirts of Hyderabad on October 26. The video proved that TRS workers offered ₹50 crores for joining the saffron party.
Telangana CM said, “We are sending the entire material evidence to Chief Justice of India UU Lalit, all Supreme Court judges, and chief justices of all high courts to make them understand the conspiracy hatched by the BJP leadership to topple the democratically-elected state governments.”
The video evidence carries three hours of lengthy conversations besides call data records and other documents which were seized by Cyberabad police during their undercover operation.
Meanwhile, Rao surfaced the copies of evidence to other CM and leaders, and he said, “They were seen saying how they would topple the Telangana government, after which they would target the governments in Delhi, Andhra Pradesh, and Rajasthan. I immediately alerted Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal about the same.”
Responding to the allegations, Telangana BJP official spokesman N V Subhash in his official statement defending his party, said, “The BJP doesn’t indulge in any such dramas if it wants to attract any MLAs from any party. It will straightaway ask them to resign from their posts and join the party. There is no need to spend money to poach anybody.”
