Rosaiah urged to be firm on Emaar issue

Special Correspondent

HYDERABAD: Coming out in support of Chief Minister K. Rosaiah, senior Congress leaders – V. Hanumantha Rao and V. Purushotham Reddy – urged him to be firm on the Emaar Properties issue.

As the APIIC-Emaar Properties issue got murkier, Mr. Purushotham Reddy at a press conference here on Friday said he had not seen a scandal of such magnitude.

He said the Chief Minister should not hesitate to take stringent action against all those responsible for the scam. He wondered, why the government was continuing Principal Secretary, Industries B.P. Acharya in the post, when the alleged irregularities reportedly took place, when he was in the APIIC.

Punish guilty

Mr. Purushottam Reddy said if the scandal had broken out in some other country, the guilty would have been hanged.

He said the TDP as well as the ruling Congress should own up responsibility for the violations that took place in the last few years.

When it was pointed out to him that the agreements were signed with the knowledge of Mr. Rosaiah, who was the chairman of Group of Ministers then, Mr. Reddy said the former was also answerable.

At another press conference, Mr. Hanumantha Rao said he would approach the Central leadership seeking a probe into the scandal.
