Karimnagar: Senior CPI leader Chada Venkat Reddy has demanded the Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy to sack the tainted ministers who had received summons from the CBI court. Addressing the media here on Tuesday, Mr Venkat Reddy has said that the CBI Special Court had asked its officials to issue summons to Home Minister P Sabita Indra Reddy and 10 others to appear before the court on June 7 in connection with the land allocation to the companies belonging to Y S Jaganmohan Reddy. Earlier, Roads and Buildings Minister Dharmana Prasada Rao was also named in the irregularities in connection with the land allocation case to the companies. ``Instead of taking stern action against the tainted ministers, the Chief Minister has been shielding them,'' he pointed out. ``Many of the Union Ministers are involved in various irregularities. Recently, the relative of a Union Minister took huge sum as bribe to give an important post in railways department to a board member. Another minister and officials involved in tampering of CBI draft report on coal mines allocation. On the whole, the Congress leaders, both at the Centre and State level, are bringing defame to the country and misusing huge sums of funds,'' the CPI leader alleged. Ironically the Chief Minister, at his meetings, has been urging the people to cooperate with the government to root out corruption in the State. In a similar way, the BJP leadership at national level has been protecting some of the party leaders who were involved in various scams. The courts � Supreme Court, High Court and CBI court ---are pointing various financial and other irregularities of the governments and passing orders to take action against the tainted individuals in power. However, the State Government is hesitant to take action against the ministers involved in scams. People would teach a fitting lesson to the Congress during the forthcoming general elections, Chada said. ``The tainted Ministers, on their own, have to resign their posts and prove their innocence,'' he added.
