Amaravati: TDP former MLA Kuna Ravi Kumar alleged at a press conference here on Monday that Speaker Tammineni Sitaram indulged in cheating many unemployed youth on behalf of employment as outsourced workers in offices of the Secretariat and Government. Ravi Kumar accused the Secretary, AP Assembly, P Bala Krishnamacharyulu of serving as a personal secretary of the Speaker to further his selfish interests. The Secretary should not have released a statement saying the Office of the Speaker will not be responsible for one Someswara Rao's illegal activities, he claimed.
The TDP leader questioned why the Secretary of the Assembly did not report to the police when he said Someswara Rao used a false ID in the name of the Office of the Speaker to cheat and collect huge amounts from unemployed youths. Ravi Kumar said if he received money he should have filed a police report against Someswara Rao but the Speaker's office did not file a complaint. If Someswara Rao misused the Office of the Speaker, why did Sitaram take him to Uganda along with his family members to attend a Speakers Conference there?
Ravi Kumar questioned the Speaker and the Secretary of the Assembly to clarify to Someswara Rao's latest audio comments, who asked why no police complaint had been filed against him if he used a fake ID at the premises of the Assembly and the Secretariat. Someswara Rao also said he had a letter from Sitaram calling him PA and transferred amounts to some private bank accounts. The leader of the TDP ordered an investigation into all of those charges.
