‘Drama’ says BJP on allegations by TRS of poaching its MLAs

On Thursday, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao released alleged evidence from a sting operation conducted by the state police accusing the Bharatiya Janata Party leadership of attempting to overthrow democratically elected governments in four non-BJP states.

Rao, also called as KCR, made video files and other information about the conversation between the three accused — Ramachandra Bharati from Faridabad, Nanda Kumar from Hyderabad, and Simhayaji Swamy from Tirupati — and the four TRS MLAs they attempted to extort available to the media on October 26 at a farmhouse outside of Hyderabad.

Pilot Rohit Reddy, Guvvala Balaraju (Achampet), Rega Kantha Rao (Pinapaka), and B Harshavardhan Reddy are the four TRS MLAs who were poached by the accused in recordings in which they used the names of prominent BJP leaders (Kollapur).

The video allegedly also demonstrated how Bharati was offering each MLA 50 crore.

Telangana BJP official spokesman N V Subhash said there was nothing new in KCR’s revelations and alleged the sting was stage-managed. “The BJP doesn’t indulge in any such dramas, if it wants to attract any MLAs from any party. It will straightaway ask them to resign from their posts and join the party. There is no need to spend money to poach anybody,” he said.
