HYDERABAD: The counsel appearing for Emaar Properties requested the Bench of High Court to summon P. Shankar Rao, the Minister who wrote a letter to the High Court, which culminated in a writ petition being constituted in court. Mr. Shankar Rao had written a letter to the High Court when he was MLA, levelling allegations regarding the deal between APIIC and the Emaar and seeking a CBI inquiry.
The letter was treated as writ petition and notices were issued. The Bench felt that the issue needs further probe. At that stage, the Emaar Properties requested the court to consider its objection to the maintainability of the case on the ground that a people's representative cannot send such letter.
The Bench comprising Justice V. Eshwariah and Justice Suri Appa Rao had overruled the objections raised by Emaar.
Now, Emaar filed a review petition before the same Bench and said that in a press conference the Minister claimed that he did all this at the behest of the Congress high command. It was averred that the utterances in the press conference showed that all this was not bonafide, but with ulterior motive.
The Minister is to be examined about the bonafides. The case was adjourned to Monday.
