Ahead of the general elections, the ED raids on Telangana Congress working president Revanth Reddy’s house at Jubilee Hills and at the other three places has put the partymen and cadre in shock.
Special teams consisting of 11 members have conducted the raids in the morning today. The prime reason for the ED raids is touted to be the sensational case of Vote for Note. The Telangana ACB has transferred the case to ED due to which it has made its entry today. Revanth Reddy has been the prime accused in Vote for Note case and was accused of offering 1 crore to the nominated MLA in 2015 elections to have his support at the crucial time.
The amount of 50 lakhs has been seized at that time by the officials but couldn’t ascertain the source of money. Citing this the government has written a letter to ED and other central agencies to ascertain the source of this money. But as per the opposition party’s view, they are stating that the state govt. which has informal ties with BJP is trying to harass key leaders of the party.
Revanth has earlier stated that KCR and Co will try their best to put him in jail before the general elections as they fear for him. Uttam Kumar Reddy has fumed on the state govt. saying that its misusing power and harassing the opposition party leaders. He also stated that they will take the revenge by coming into power in general elections.
