Asks whether Public Safety and Security Committee laid down any norms before YSR’s death
HYDERABAD: Senior Congress leader K.R. Amos has reiterated his demand that Public Safety and Security Committee chairman and Member of Parliament K.V.P. Ramachandra Rao give an explanation on the measures initiated to strengthen public safety and security after his appointment to the post.
Mr. Amos questioned whether the committee had laid down any norms before the tragic death of former Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy and whether Dr. Rao had convened a meeting of the high-level committee after the September 2 incident to take stock of the situation.
“Dr. Rao, who is holding a responsible position, should reply to the questions or he should table a report on the measures initiated for tightening security measures,” he said. The senior Congress leader refuted charges from a section of leaders that he had violated the party’s discipline in raising concerns about security related aspects. He welcomed the letter written by a section of Congress leaders to AICC president Sonia Gandhi seeking action against those who breached party discipline.
Referring indirectly to Mr. Rao, he said people should know “how a Rajya Sabha member camped in Hyderabad to prompt the MLAs to put in their papers against the December 9 statement of Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram on Telangana.
