Hyderabad Today News: Minister Sailajanath is been pushed into the money laundering with the sting operation carried out by the Cobra post and is now having to face the continuous criticisms from one or the party leaders. Ex-RTC Chairman Gone Prakash Rao is today blamed that Sailajanath had taken heavy bribes for the sanction of permissions to the Primary Educational Training centres. Gone is blamed that around 300 colleges were given permissions individually collecting around 7 lach rupees from each college and have done a huge corruption in this.
Gone said though this permission process should have been completed by 25 of January, they had extended it till now just for their selfish profits. Gone said that even this corruption amounts are being forcedly being collected in the Telangana and also that CM Kiran too is supporting Sailajanath in this corruption activities. Gone is also said that CM is supporting even the clubs into the cards games. Similarly the permissions to the clubs were given permissions to run with by the lobbying of MLCs Premsagar and Rangareddy said Gone Prakash Rao.
YSR Congress Party leader and former chairman of APSRTC Gone Prakash Rao here on Tuesday alleged that Primary Education Minister S. Sailajanath had extracted huge bribes for granting sanction to opening of primary educational institutions. Talking to the media, Gone said the Primary Education Minister inordinately prolonged the process of sanctioning schools with a view to extract heavy mamools from the applicants though the process was scheduled to have been completed by January 25. He further alleged that Sailajanath granted permission to 300 schools one after other and collected kickbacks.
Gone alleged that Sailajanath had extracted Rs 7 lakhs from each school management. The minister collected heavy amounts from the school managements in Telangana with vengeance as he had full blessings of Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy. Prakash Rao also alleged that Chief Minister was giving full protection to the city gambling clubs which were resorting to illegal practices. Condemning permission to the gambling clubs in the city, Gone alleged that MLCs Premsagar and Ranga Reddy lobbied for permissions to such clubs.
Andhra Pradesh School Education Minister Sake Sailajanath finds himself caught in an alleged money laundering scandal, exposed by Cobrapost online portal, embarrassing the Kiran Kumar Reddy-led Congress government. While Congress is silent on the matter, opposition parties have demanded immediate action against the minister besides a thorough inquiry into the allegations of money laundering. On his part, School Education Minister Sailajanath pleaded innocence and maintained that money laundering was too big a thing for a small person like him.
He, however, admitted that he did try to "help" his friend secure a bank loan and "just put in a word" to the bank officials. The Cobrapost expose revealed that the minister agreed to stand guarantee for a Rs 25 crore hawala transaction in a supposed real-estate venture in temple-town Tirupati. A local orthopaedic surgeon P Hariprasad, who Sailajanath said was his junior, was supposed to take up the real-estate venture. The Cobrapost scribe, who posed himself as an investor (of black money), first approached a senior official of Indian Bank R Manohar in New Delhi and through him met Hariprasad.
Hariprasad and Manohar, who are said to be related to each other, took the scribe to Sailajanath, who agreed to "stand guarantee" for the investment. All this was recorded on camera and posted on the Cobrapost website, causing further ignominy to the already beleaguered Kiran Kumar Reddy government with some of the ministers already under CBI scanner over the dubious deals during the erstwhile Y S Rajasekhara Reddy regime. "Why is no action taken against Sailajanath despite the expose?
"Telugu Desam Party official spokesman Kodela Siva Prasada Rao questioned. He criticised the Congress, saying the party could not act against the tainted ministers in the state when it was unable to deal with such ministers at the national level. CPM state secretary B V Raghavulu demanded a high-level inquiry into the allegations of money laundering against the minister. CPI state secretary K Narayana and BJP state president G Kishan Reddy also demanded a thorough probe into the issue.
