Hyderabad, Oct 8 (INN): Former DGP V Dinesh Reddy leveled serious allegations against Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy accusing him of betrayal, supporting land grabbing and sabotaging Telangana.
Addressing a press conference at a private hotel here on Tuesday, Dinesh Reddy alleged that the Chief Minister denied him an extension as he did not support the land grabbing activities of his brother Santosh Reddy. He said although Kiran Kumar Reddy assured him that he would be given an extension, but betrayed him by issuing a GO on his retirement two days prior to his retirement on September 30.
Dinesh Reddy also accused Kiran Kumar Reddy of sabotaging the formation of Telangana. He alleged that the Chief Minister wanted him to rake up Naxalites issue and claim that Maoists activities would increase in case of bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh. “Kiran Kumar Reddy does not want Telangana state to become a reality,” he alleged. When asked as to why he remained silent on these issues while in office, he said that his position did not permit him to speak in public about such matters. However, he claimed that he had opposed the Chief Minister on several occasions.
The ex-DGP admitted that he praised the Chief Minister on some occasions. “When we asked for Police welfare funds, he gave and therefore, we praised him,” he said. However, he said that the real face of Kiran Kumar Reddy was exposed in the last two months.
Dinesh Reddy said that he was not afraid of any retaliation to the allegations that he has been leveling against the Chief Minister as he can prove them with evidence. “Kisi kay baap ki jaagir nahi hai,” he said and added there was dictatorialism in the country. “We will retaliate and re-bounce. We have our own groups, our own support,” he said.
It may be mentioned that Dinesh Reddy’s appeal for extension of service by one more year for turned down by the Central Administrative Tribunal and its decision was upheld by Andhra Pradesh High Court and then the Supreme Court. (INN)
