A TRS Woman leader’s controversial statements has put state Industries and IT minister KT Rama Rao in big trouble. Her remarks had created a political storm in Telangana at a time when KTR is getting ready to take the mantle from his father and Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao.
The TRS leader and Siricilla Municipal Mayor Mayor S Pavani had made comments in front of the media that KTR encouraged Corporators and ward Councillors to take commissions from the contractors for awarding works.
Incidentally, the mayor was was elected from the Municipality which falls under Siricilla Assembly Constituency from where KTR was elected. Pawani also said the works were not being sanctioned to the contractors without paying commissions to the local elected leaders.
As the party Chief KCR got serious on her comments which went viral on social media, Pawani was asked to quit the post. The Mayor immediately put in her papers. Taking the issue as an weapon to corner KCR and KTR, Congress decided to wage a legal battle by lodging a complaint with Anti Corruption Bureau.
