Ambati seeks disciplinary action against Rayapati

Pointing out that the remarks of Congress MP from Guntur Rayapati Sambasiva Rao invite disciplinary action, suspended Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee secretary Ambati Rambabu on Wednesday demanded Pradesh Congress Committee president D Srinivas to issue a show-cause notice to Mr Sambasiva Rao immediately.

Talking to media persons, Mr Rambabu alleged that Mr Sambasiva Rao’s statement that Chief Minister K Rosaiah had accommodated ‘corrupt ministers’ in his Cabinet and he was not in a position to initiate action against them are against party interest. He said that since Mr Sambasiva Rao had made the comments before the media and not before the party for, these statements should invite disciplinary action. Mr Rambabu further pointed out that the statements accused the Chief Minister of extending his indirect support to corrupt Ministers.

By raising internal matters of the party before media, the MP has violated party discipline, Mr Rambabu said and demanded PCC to seek an explanation of the remarks.

Reacting on the alleged comments of Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu against Kadapa MP YS Jaganmohan Reddy on the payment of Rs 84 crore advance income tax to the government, Mr Rambabu stated that the TDP leader has no moral right to comment on Jagan as he is paying taxes in a responsible manner without evading.

What is wrong in paying advance tax to the government? he asked.

Mr Rambabu further accused Mr Naidu of illegal methods in his business dealings. He did not elaborate further on what these illegal businesses were.

The suspended PCC secretary described the TDP chief as ‘mentally disturbed’ and added that he was making baseless statements unable to digest the good response the Kadapa MP is receiving from people during the Odarpu yatra.
