Secunderabad Cantonment MLA P Shankara Rao on Tuesday advised Chief Minister K Rosaiah to drop Government Advisor and Rajya Sabha member KVP Ramachandra Rao as he was damaging the image of the party and the government by working to protect his own interests.
Talking to media persons on Assembly premises, Mr Shankar Rao alleged since he assumed charge as Government Advisor during the tenure of former chief minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy, the state has suffered huge financial loss and has witnessed many scams.
The Cantonment MLA demanded that the government order a probe into his illegal properties got through Benami names immediately.
He asked the Chief Minister to follow the directions of High Command and not follow KVP as his suggestions do not serve any purpose.
President Pratibha Patil, Congress president Sonia Gandhi and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh have no advisors for them. Why does the government need the services of an advisor to Chief Minister?, Mr Shankar Rao wondered.
The MLA also accused the Chief Minister of being remote-controlled by KVP.
If the Congress party follows the advices of KVP, it would definitely bite the dust in the Assembly elections scheduled to be held in 2014, Mr Shankar Rao predicted.
He urged the Chief Minister to revamp the Cabinet immediately to streamline the administration as some ministers are not working efficiently.
