CM Chandrashekhar's allegation- BJP trying to buy MLAs

Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao on Sunday alleged that the BJP was trying to buy 20 or 30 MLAs of the ruling TRS to topple his government.

Addressing a rally in the by-poll Manugode Rao constituency, Chandrashekhar raised the issue of an alleged attempt to buy MLAs, saying brokers from Delhi came and offered Rs 100 crore to each MLA. Their intention was to capture Telangana and do arbitrary privatization.

However, the true sons of this soil stumbled upon this proposal. His remarks came a day after three people were arrested and sent to judicial custody for trying to woo four TRS MLAs. Rao also presented these four MLAs to the public.

On the complaint of TRS MLA Rohit Reddy, a report has been registered against Ramachandra Bharti alias Satish Sharma, Nand Kumar, and Simhaji Swamy on the night of 26 October under criminal conspiracy, offer of a bribe under the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1998 and other sections.

MLA Rohit Reddy said that he was offered Rs 100 crore to leave the TRS and fight the upcoming assembly elections on a BJP ticket.
