Telangana: Congress Leader Revanth Reddy Alleges BJP is using central agencies to lure Congress leaders


Revanth Reddy, the head of the Telangana Congress, claimed on Monday that the BJP was pressuring key Congress officials in Telangana to defect to the saffron party via the Enforcement Directorate (ED). Speaking to the media at Gandhi Bhavan in Hyderabad, he claimed that the BJP administration was abusing the ED, Income Tax, and Central Bureau of Investigation to undermine the Congress in Telangana and put obstacles in the way of the Bharat Jodo Yatra led by Rahul Gandhi.

According to Revanth Reddy, the BJP was putting up obstacles because they were concerned about Rahul's popularity as a result of the Bharat Jodo Yatra. As the Bharat Jodo Yatra moved through Telangana and Karnataka, he said that the timing of the ED letters to Congress leaders in those two States was done to incite fear.

Revanth Reddy said that J Geetha Reddy, Md. Ali Shabbir, Anjan Kumar Yadav, G Anil Kumar, and Sudarshan Reddy were recipients of notices from the ED. He claimed that no leader who had given money to the BJP or the TRS party had received a notification.

He claimed that although the BJP collected a staggering Rs 4,841 crores, the ED sent letters to Congress leaders for donations of Rs 1 crore.

"CM KCR wants to ensure that the BJP wins the federal government for a third time and that the TRS takes back control of Telangana. In order to break away from all the parties backing the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) led by Congress, he has been working to form a new national party. Revanth Reddy questioned, "Had he made any attempt to split some party from the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA)?"

He claimed that once TRS in New Delhi was given land for a party office, the bond between the two parties grew deeper.
