Amid recent development in the Southern politics, BJP leader G Vivek Venkataswamy has filed a Rs 100 crores defamation lawsuit against Telangana Chief Minister KC Rao alleging that the latter dragged his name in a false case of cash recovery during the Dubbaka by-elections. Venkataswamy said that during the Dubbaka by-election, the police had found Rs 1 crore after which the Chief Minister directed the police commissioner to link that case to him and file a false case against him. According to the BJP leader since he has been exposing the illegal activities done by Rao, he is being targetted. He further added that Rao had also tried to drag him into another case not related to him in order to damage his reputation. Thus, he has filed a 100 crores defamation suit against the CM. A notice has been served to KCR in which he either apologizes Venkataswamy within seven days or appropriate action will be taken against him.
Venkataswamy went on to compare Rao with the ninth Nizam of Hyderabad saying that the two have been behaving the same lately. The BJP leader has accused the CM of misusing the police force for personal works and trying to put a lot of pressure on the BJP activities and thereby on the people opposing him. Venkataswamy has been speaking up and bring out the alleged corruption cases in the TRS Government for the last few months in the projects like Kaleshwaram and Pothureddy and KCR’s slumber in the farmhouse during COVID crisis and flood crisis. The BJP leader has also accused members of TRS of distributing money to the voters. He alleges that TRS has allotted around two crores of rupees per ward to be distributed to the voters. Accusing KCR and TRS government of misdeeds and misgovernance, Venkataswamy says that the people will teach them a lesson. All this political drama is happening amid, the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) polls which were scheduled to be held on December 1 and the counting of votes shall take place on December 4.
