Congress urges Governor Narasimhan to sack two ministers
Telangana's main opposition Congress on Tuesday urged Governor E.S.L. Narasimhan to dismiss two ministers for EAMCET-II (medical) question paper leak.
A delegation of party leader submitted a memorandum to the governor, seeking probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) into the paper leak.
Party's state unit chief Uttam Kumar Reddy told reporters after meeting, that the inquiry by the CID will not bring out the truth, and the party urged the governor to dismiss Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister Kadiam Srihari and Health Minister Laxma Reddy.
The Congress also complained to the governor about the forcible manner in which the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) government was acquiring lands from farmers for Mallannasagar irrigation project in Medak district.
It alleged that the government was adopting dictatorial attitude and was using police to suppress the protest by the farmers and other villagers.
Former minister D. K. Aruna, who was also part of the delegation, said Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao had confined himself to his guest house, leaving the governance to police.
She said the Chief Minister should resign owning moral responsibility for the leakage of EAMCET-II question paper. She said the TRS chief had not responded to the allegations about his family's involvement in the racket.
Congress leader in Legislative Council Mohammed Ali Shabbi had said last week that he suspect the involvement of Chandrasekhar Rao's son and IT Minister K.T. Rama Rao in question paper leakage.
The state government on Tuesday scrapped EAMCET-II due to question paper leakage and announced that fresh entrance for admissions to medical courses will be held next month.
