Kadiam Srihari demands Governor to dismiss tainted ministers
Warangal: Telugu Desam Party senior leader Kadiam Srihari has accused the Governor ESL Narasimhan of failing to deliver his constitutional duties. ...
Being the constitutional head of the state, the Governor has the responsibility of upholding certain level of ethical standards in running the government. But the Governor has not acted even as the members of state cabinet were being charge sheeted by Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
"One after the other, almost all the ministers are accused by the CBI in Jagan's illegal assets case. Narasimhan instead of dismissing them from the cabinet is maintaining silence" he told press persons here on Sunday.
This, the Governor was doing at the behest of Congress high command, Srihari observed , adding it was right time for the Governor to act, as the Constitution was violated and the Chief Minister failed to uphold the dignity of the post. The Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy instead sending out the accused ministers from the cabinet has been protecting them. 'At least now the Governor should act and dismiss the ministers Dharmana Prasada Rao and Sabitha Indra Reddy from the state cabinet' he demanded.
"The Governor Narasimhan who showed keenness to suppress Telangana movement is not acting against the corrupt Congress government in the state" he alleged. Action against all the ministers pulled up by Supreme Court for issuing 24 controversial Gos that benefitted YS Jaganmohan Reddy should be taken. The TDP leader further stated that the whole cabinet deserves to be sacked since it was full of rowdy sheeters, persons involved in criminal cases and corrupt ones. It would have been looked respectful had the tainted ministers resigned voluntarily from their posts, he noted.
Srihari expressed anguish at the wrong trends emerging in the state politics wherein criminals and corrupt persons were being depicted as heroes. A section of the media has also been promoting such trends. "It will have a bad impact on the governance" he lamented.
Referring to the commencement of final session of the present parliament from April 22, the TDP leader wanted the Union Government to table a bill in support of Telangana as per the provisions of constitutional article three. The party leaders A Baswa Reddy, E Mallesham, A Murali and others were present.
