Hyderabad: Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is likely to summon Rajya Sabha member KVP Ramachandra Rao and E Suryanarayana Reddy aka Sureedu for questioning in the next few days and confront them with each other. It may be recalled that on Saturday, Rao was questioned for more than eight hours in connection with the disproportionate assets case registered against Y S Jaganmohan Reddy. Sources said the CBI was getting ready to issue notices to Rao and Sureedu asking them to appear before the investigators in the next few days. It is significant to mention here that the CBI Joint Director V V Lakshminarayana after questioning Rao On Saturday said that they might summon him again for questioning if necessary. Sources said that Rao was called for questioning on Saturday based on the deposition made by Sureedu, personal aide of late chief minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy. Sureedu informed in his statement recorded by the CBI in April 2012 that, "Those who wanted to get benefits from the government were supposed to invariably meet KVP Ramachandra Rao and then only they used to meet Y S Rajasekhara Reddy. In case anyone met Rajasekhara Reddy directly, he asked them to meet KVP Ramachandra Rao." Sources said that the investigators now wish to confront Rao and Sureedu to elicit more information to tighten the loose ends in the case since the duo was privy to several key transactions that allegedly culminated into issuing 26 controversial GOs issued by Reddy's government. The CBI accusation is that 26 GOs had been issued by Reddy's government to dole out undue favours for select investors and industrialists in the form of land allotments and subsidies on a quid pro quo arrangement.
