BJP seeks KCR's resignation

By Our Staff Reporter

KARIMNAGAR, AUG. 5. The district president of the Bharatiya Janata Party, P. Sugunakar Rao, has demanded the resignation of the Union Minister, K. Chandrashekhar Rao, to "maintain the sanctity of the country's democratic system."

`Insult to district'

Addressing a press conference here on Thursday, Mr. Sugunakar Rao said the Union Minister must abide by the law. The court had "rightly" issued a non-bailable warrant against him. The registration of a cheating case against the Karimnagar MP and the Union Minister, the first of its kind, was an insult to entire district, he said.

Demanding that the Government release a white paper on the criminal backgrounds of elected representatives, including legislators, members of parliament and Union and State Ministers, he said several elected representatives had suppressed the facts about their criminal history while submitting nominations during the elections.

He also suggested that the Election Commission of India amend the Representatives of Peoples Act to ensure transparency.

`Hospitals need staff'

Expressing concern over the outbreak of viral fever in the district, he said the cases were increasing despite instructions to the Medical Department by the Chief Minister, Y. S Rajashekhara Reddy.

Attributing the outbreak of diseases to the shortage of staff in hospitals, he urged the administration to equip the hospitals with sufficient staff. He also suggested that the administration introduce mobile hospitals to treat people in interior villages.

Mr. Sugunakar Rao found fault with the reported politicisation of transfers of sub-inspectors and circle inspectors by local legislators in the district.
