Hyderabad: Controversy is brewing over the alleged threats held out by Secunderabad Cantonment MLA P. Shankar Rao to an employee of the Cantonment Board. On Wednesday, a majority of the board employees wore black badges to register their protest against the legislator.
Employees alleged that Mr. Rao had ‘threatened” to register a case under SC, ST Atrocities Prevention Act against one of their colleagues, O. Gajjaram, over the issue of including the legislator’s name in the cantonment voters list.
The employees maintained that the MLA was advised to get the signature of an existing voter as per rules .
On this, the MLA, reportedly, lost his cool and held out threats against Mr. Gajjaram and accused him of being ‘corrupt’ and threatened to complain to the CBI too. The agitated employees submitted a memorandum to SCB Chief Executive Officer C. Ravindra accusing the MLA of frequently interfering with the administration.
Several employees of the SCB thronged the board office wearing black badges. They threatened to intensify their agitation, if Mr. Rao did not apologise to them.
