Cash-for-vote chargesheet : ACB fails to name Naidu

0

The expected has happened. Notwithstanding the ferocious statements by T-Chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao that no God would save Chandrababu Naidu from being implicated in Cash-vote-scam, Naidu’s name did not figure accused in the chargesheet filed by the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) of Telangana.

Though the chargesheet did mention Naidu’s name many times as the person responsible for the whole episode, the ACB could not conclusively say that the chief minister of Andhra Pradesh was accused.

The basis for the Chandrababu Naidu’s reference in the chargesheet was the telephonic conversations between complainant Elvis Stephenson and TDP MLA Revanth Reddy, and Harris Sebastian.

The telltale reference was made in the form of “Babu’  and  ‘Boss’ and ACB argues that this  Babu and Boss was none other than Andhra Pradesh chief minister  Chandrababu Naidu.

To buttress its argument the ACB also produced call data of conversations where Babu and Boss recurrently popped up.

The ACB today filed a 25-page chargesheet in the special ACB court.  ACB  claimed that the chargesheet had been filed after interrogating 39 witnesses including TDP MLA Revanth Reddy, Sebastian, Uday Sinha, TDP leader Vem Narender Reddy, his son Krishna Kirthan, Sandra Venkata Veeraiah etc.The ACB annexed 319 documents to the chargesheet.

ACB also strategically chose a day, when entire media was running helter-skelter  to cover every bit of news related to  former president Kalam, to file the charge sheet.

Chief minister KCR’s periodic threats that Naidu was directly involved in the cash-vote-scam and T-News channel’s leaks of purported telephonic conversation between  nominated MLA Stephenson and AP CM Naidu, onlh created a hype that Naidu’s name was all set to appear in the charge-sheet.

Media carried reports that ACB was thinking of slapping a notice on Naidu to appear before ACB. The mind game unleashed by TRS was so frightening that CM Chandrababu Naidu had to issues an ultimatum to KCR that if he would attempt to arrest him that would be the  end of T- government.

Following intense war of words, Prime Minister Modi is said to have asked a union minister to work out a rapprochement between the two warring chief ministers. Consequently  KCR’s son and IT minister met union urban development minister Venkaiah Naidu twice in New Delhi. Telangana.Similarly, Venkaiah personally met KCR in Hyderabad.

Finally, today, the chargesheet filed by ACB has not reflected the terrible animosity the two chief minister displayed for each other. What KCR said in public meeting about Naidu’s role in cash for vote scam, in hind sight and Naidus’ ultimatum looks like  staging of a gory war scene to cover up the compromise being struck behind the screens.

All the accused will tried under IPC 120 (B) for conspiracy and prevention of corruption Act, because the peoples representatives come under the definition of public servants.

However, those who deny the compromise theory say  AP CM’s names might figure in the supplementary chargesheet which ACB is expected to file after further investigation.

“The ACB had thrown enough light on the role of Naidu. Telephonic conversations squarely point to the role AP CM played in the attempt to buy nominated MLA’s vote for a TDP candidate in Telangana Legislative Council elections,” they said.

Chandrababu Naidu’s name as well as the origins of money paid to the complainant would also come out soon in the supplementary chargesheet, they added.

Cash-for-Vote Scam: HC Reserves Judgment on Revanth’s Bail Plea

0

[dropcap]H[/dropcap]igh Court of Hyderabad has reserved its judgment on bail plea of the main accused in the cash-for-vote scam, Revanth Reddy to June 30. While Revanth’s advocates said that main investigation into the case is over and that he can be granted bail as he’s a public representative.

The advocate general of Telangana state, who is arguing on behalf of ACB, said that bail shouldn’t be granted to Revant Reddy. The lawyers have also said that source of the amount involved in the cash-for-vote is yet to be ascertained. In case, bail is granted to Revanth Reddy, he can tamper with the evidences and can influence the witnesses in the case, argued ACB. It may be recalled that Revanth Reddy was arrested 25 days ago by ACB after they allegedly caught him redhanded while striking a criminal deal with a nominated MLA to Telangana assembly–Elvis Stephenson.

Can’t Make Sealed Cover Report Public

0

ACB court, which is trying the infamous cash-for-vote scam, has made it clear that it can’t reveal the contents in the report that was submitted by FSL in connection with this case. The court has further said that the report, which was submitted in sealed cover, can’t be made public. The court told this to ACB (Anti Corruption Bureau), which is probing the scam. However, ACB officials can move a memo in the court to get the duplicate copy of the preliminary report of FSL, said the court. It further stated that it will decide whether or not to give the duplicate copy only after a careful examination of memo.

It may be recalled that ACB earlier directed FSL in Hyderabad to look into the audio tapes that are alleged to be of TDP supremo Chandrababu Naidu. The tape contained alleged conversation between Babu and nominated MLA to Telangana assembly, Elvis Stephenson. While FSL is yet to submit its final report in the case, it however gave a preliminary report. The content of this report is not yet known. Nonetheless, it has been rival on the Internet that FSL reportedly ascertained that the voice in the audio tape was not fabricated.

It is known that cash for vote scam came to light recently when ACB conducted a sting operation and apprehended TDP MLA Revant Reddy from Telangana state for allegedly promising Stephenson a sum of five crore rupees, in case he votes for TDP candidate in MLC elections. The episode evoked public cry and Election Commission swung into action seeking a copy of FSL report from the ACB court.

0

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) which is looking into the authenticity of the alleged telephone tapes of TDP supremo Chandrababu Naidu, has submitted its preliminary report to ACB court in Hyderabad.

The FSL reportedly mentioned that there the audio was not a fabricated one. In order to ascertain that the voice in the audio is that of Chandrababu Naidu, FSL needs to record the voice of Babu. So, FSL is likely to seek court to give permission for recording Babu’s voice.

Meanwhile, Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) which is probing cash-for-vote scam, has requested the court to give a copy of FSL findings. it may be recalled that vernacular media in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana recently aired the conversation between Chandrababu Naidu and nominated MLA to Telangana assembly, Stephenson.

0

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he cash-for-vote scam seems to be a never ending episode. In a major development, nominated MLA to Telangana state, Elvis Stephenson has filed counter a petition in the High Court of Hyderabad against the Andhra Pradesh Government. In his counter petition, the nominated MLA prayed the high court to cancel bail given to Muthiah. Expressing his anguish over the alleged defence of Muthiah-the fourth accused in the infamous cash for vote scam-by Andhra Pradesh Government, Stephenson questioned, in his petition, as to how Andhra Pradesh public prosecutor can speak in defence of a key accused of a major scam.

Leave Controversies to Law: Venkaiah Appeals to Telugu CMs

0

[dropcap]N[/dropcap]early a month after Telugu chief ministers—Chandrababu Naidu and K Chandrasekhar Rao- apparently started off war of words over the infamous cash-for-vote scam, the union minister Venkaiah Naidu (who is often regarded as the statesman) has spoken on the issue.

Stressing on the need for peace, Venkaiah Naidu has said that the duo must now put all the controversies to rest. He said that they must stop shooting dialogues at each other. Instead, he said, KCR and Babu must leave all the controversies to the law of the land.

It may be recalled that Chandrababu Naidu came under heavy criticism after the arrest of his MLA from Telangana state, Revant Reddy. Babu, who held a public meet in Vijayawada shortly, took pot shots at KCR and said that even he had ACB. 

Coming down heavily on these statements, KCR said that even Lord Brahma wouldn’t save Chandrababu Naidu. According to experts, both the chief ministers must have refrained from personal statements when law was taking its own course of action. Today, Venkaiah Naidu too came out with similar opinion.

Let us truly hope that Telugu chief ministers will now at least put these controversies at rest and work together for the development of two states.

Stephenson’s Statement to Nail Naidu?

0

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he cash-for-vote scam seems to be a never ending topic especially on television channels.  Barely a day after Andhra Pradesh police served notices on T News for allegedly telecasting AP chief minister Chandrababu Naidu’s alleged conversation with nominated MLA to Telangana assembly, Elvis Stephenson, a vernacular news channel claimed that it got the statement of Stephenson, which was recorded before a magistrate at Nampally Court in Hyderabad.

[pullquote position=”left”] In his statement to the court, Stephenson reportedly said that Chandrababu Naidu was the kingpin of the entire cash-for-vote scam.[/pullquote]

In his statement to the court, Stephenson reportedly said that Chandrababu Naidu was the kingpin of the entire cash-for-vote scam. He said that Mathaiah (one of the accused in the scam) visited Stephenson’s residence on May 28 and offered him a sum of two crore rupees besides an air travel ticket in case he accepts to refrain from MLC elections under MLA quota .

On May 29, Stephenson said that he wanted to deal with the key person in this episode after which he was told it was TDP MLA Revanth Reddy who handled it. It was then Stephenson approached the Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) and DGP of Telangana state and gave a written complaint over the same.

On May 30, another two accused in the scam—Sebastian and Antony visited Stephenson’s residence while the former told Stephenson that he was sent by Chandrababu Naidu. Later in the noon 12, Revanth Reddy visited Stephenson’s residence. Stephenson informed the same to ACB, who installed cameras at nominated MLA’s residence.[dropcap][/dropcap]

On May 31,  Sebastian telephoned Stephenson and said he wanted to visit him along with Revanth Reddy, however, at a different location. Accordingly, Stephenson arranged for the meeting at his friend’s (Malcolm Taylor) place and also informed the same to ACB who installed cameras-this time- at Taylor’s residence. Later, in the evening Revanth Reddy and Sebastian visited Taylor’s residence with a bag  that contained 50 lakh rupees. It is known that the sting operation was later released to the media by unknown sources.

Notably, Stephenson even told the magistrate the person who connected him to Chandrababu Naidu was Harry Sebastian.

The experts said that this statement of Stephenson will apparently considered as a key evidence. Let us wait and watch when and how curtains will be drawn on this infamous cash-for-vote scam.

TDP MLA Sandra Avoids ACB

0

While behind the screen talks were going on for a patch up between warring Andhra Pradesh and Telangana governments, T-TDP MLA Sathupalli Sandra Venkata Veeraiah on Friday avoided ACB quizzing in connection with cash-for-vote scam. The MLA was to present himself before the ACB on Friday.  Just before the expiry of 5 PM deadline, he sent a letter to the ACB seeking more time for appearance before the investigating agency.

ACB slapped notice on him under Section 160 of Cr PC to appear before ACB additional SP M Mallareddy on Friday before 5 PM.

However, writing a letter to the ACB, the MLA sought 10 days’ time on health grounds.

He said he was advised bed-rest by doctors as he was suffering from pain in the back and right leg and was immobile.

Stating that he would cooperate with the ACB in the investigation, he said, he needed more time to stir out of bed because of his medical condition.

Veeraiah is one of the many TDP members in row of investigation in the case. Two days ago ACB questioned Nagender Reddy, who was party’s candidate for Council election. And another MLA, Revanth Reddy, who was caught red-handed while giving money to nominated MLA Elvis Stephenson, is already in Judicial custody.

Jagan’s political tomfoolery in cash-for-vote scam

0

It is pretty clear that the political heat between AP and TS governments is coming down.  An impression that things will be allowed to take their own course without any political influence with regard to the cash-for-vote scam and so called  phone-tapping charge by AP government is gaining ground. Not only have warring factions, TDP and TRS, fallen silent, the YSRC leadership which played in the sidelines has also stepped aside.  Centre took objection to the unsavoury remarks being made by AP ministers against Governor .  Finally, chief minister Naidu had to instruct his colleagues against attracting the wrath of Raj Bhvan. His office on Friday midday informed journalists about CM’s advisory to the ministers.

In whole drama, YS Jaganmohan Reddy, YSR Congress president and Opposition leader in AP Assembly, played a bit of tomfoolery.  Ever since the cash-for-vote sting tapes leaked to electronic media, it was Jagan who behaved like a man-possessed.

He thought the  cash-of-vote case was a great opportunity  to settle scores with  his bête noire chief minister Chandrababu Naidu and to send him to Chenchalguda jail, where the former Kadapa MP spent nearly one and half year.

He made more noise than any other politician in the state on cash-for-vote scam. He was more vocal in demanding that Naidu be made accused number one. He also demanded that Naidu should step down and face the probe. He also extended support to TRS government in Telangana to act quickly in arresting the AP chief minister. As if it was not enough he rushed to New Delhi and petitioned to the President Pranab Mukherjee and union home minister Rajnath Singh for a high-level probe in to Naidu’s role in cash-for-vote scam.

He lamented that Andhra Pradesh,under Naidu’s rule, had become a haven of corruption.

Jagan seems to have underestimated the depth of regional sentiment among the AP people following bifurcation of the state. His overt alliance with KCR, who is generally perceived as anti-Andhra, brought him disrepute among people of Andhra Pradesh. Chances are that he is seen as an ally of TRS in Andhra Pradesh, which does not augur well for his party.

TDP Uses Brahmastram Against Governor, Repents Later

0

As cash-for-vote scam involving TDP legislator from Telangana region is intensifying with ACB reportedly getting a letter from the election commission asking its sleuths for a stringent probe, TDP leaders are trying to use all their brahmastrams.

It is known that TDP folks recently brought in section eight of AP Reorganisation Act into the picture. As Governor ESL Narasimhan is not responding despite TDP supremo Chandrababu meeting him time and again over the implementation of governor’s law and order in Hyderabad, the party leaders chose to target ESL Narasimhan, the constitutional head of the state.

TDP senior leader Acham Naidu recently, in a press meet, addressed the governor as ‘you’ (without a pinch of respect) and said that he was acting as a ‘gangireddu’ (meaning a bull). Lashing out at governor, Acham Naidu said why governor was tight lipped when KCR said that Andhra Pradesh police cannot execute their duties in Hyderabad.

Centre Serious:

The Centre, which noticed these severe objectionable comments made by Acham Naidu against the governor of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states, has reportedly warned AP chief secretary that TDP leaders were launching verbal attacks against the governor.

Acham Naidu Apologizes and Withdraws:

After learning that Centre expressed its serious concerns over derogatory comments he made against governor, Acham Naidu spoke to the media and said that he was apologetic about the statements he made. He elucidated that he made those remarks only in agony after he looked at the situation of Andhra Pradesh. In case my statements had hurt governor, I withdraw them immediately, added Acham Naidu.

Need for Naidu to Control Leaders:

It is known that TDP leaders are speaking whatever they want that are sometimes lacking logic and sounding contradictory. Earlier, Parakala Prabhakar, who spoke about cash for vote scam has said that the voice in the audio tapes was not that of Chandrababu Naidu. Shortly, Yanamala Ramakrishnudu said that the audio was fabricated. 

Even as these leaders continue to make contradictory statements, TDP MLC Somireddy went a step ahead and said that TRS was obstructing the bail of Revant Reddy. How can a political party influence the court was the question then. He was allegedly trying to send wrong messages to people on courts, which was again a matter of serious concern,

This confusion among leaders must be curtained. It is high time for Chandrababu Naidu to bring in a proper code of conduct within the party. Verbal attacks on political leaders are at times acceptable as criticism, however, using the same policy for courts, constitutional heads and constitution is highly not acceptable.

He even mentioned that he was getting threatening calls from unknown people and sought police protection.

It is known that this case has been handed over to the Andhra Pradesh CID police. It may be noted speculations were rife that Muthaiah complained against KCR and the Andhra Pradesh police might serve notices on him at any time.

Telugu CMs Convene High Level Meetings With Police

Chief ministers of Telugu states are busy convening high-level meetings with their state police. While Chandrababu is reportedly pressing their police for drawing curtains to the cash for vote scam without bringing in his name, K Chandrashekar Rao is meeting governor ESL Narasimhan and discussing the developments of the investigation.
The reports earlier said that the centre gave assurance to Babu that it would look into the matter. Now that BJP is coming under scanner over Sushma‘s issue, it reportedly clarified Babu that it would not intervene in the cash for vote scam issue.
On the other hand, K Chandrashekar Rao held meeting with ACB DG, AK Khan this morning. Whether Chandrababu’s name would be included in the charge sheet is now becoming the topic of the town.

Revanth Reddy Moves High Court for Bail

0

The ACB court in Hyderabad that is probing cash for vote scam has extended the judicial remand of the three accused in the case–Revanth Reddy, Sebastian and Uday Simha—for 14 days. As the earlier remand of the accused came to an end today, the ACB slueths have submitted a memo to the court stating that the report of forensic department is yet to reach them and the accused shouldn’t be granted bail today.
As the court denied them bail, the advocates of Revanth Reddy and other two accused moved High Court for bail. Revanth Reddy, in his bail petition, mentioned that the major investigation was already over in this case, he should be given a bail.

He has also mentioned that as a public representative, he would cooperate with the investigation officials. The lawyers of Revanth Reddy, meanwhile, told the ACB court that Revanth was allegedly framed in the case as a part of the political controversy.

Revanth Reddy’s Judicial Custody Ends Today

0

With Revanth Reddy’s judicial custody coming to an end today, Telugu states are keeping their fingers crossed as to what would be happening today. Also, a section of media is highlighting that Anti Corruption Bureau, probing cash-for-vote scam, has got key details in this case—as forensic department reportedly ascertained that the voice in the audio tapes was that of Chandrababu Naidu. Also, the media has been reporting that a key central leader was also involved in the entire episode.

Earlier, Chandrababu Naidu’s son Lokesh Naidu’s name surfaced and a report was presumably sent to the Centre by the Anti Corruption Bureau on the same. It may be recalled that Revanth Reddy was red-handedly arrested by ACB two weeks ago while allegedly striking a bribe deal with nominated MLA of Telangana, Stephenson.

As the latter approached ACB earlier, the anti corruption bureau sleuths carried out a sting operation. Chandrababu Naidu, who was extremely upset with the operation, said that ACB had no right to carry out any such sting acts as election model code of conduct was underway.
