EC serves notice to KCR on cash-for-seat scam
The Election Commission on Tuesday served a notice to Telangana Rashtra Samithi president K. Chandrasekhar Rao asking him to explain whether his party had received Rs. 10 crore as bribe from Samala Venkata Reddy to field him from Secunderabad Lok Sabha constituency.
The suo motu action by the EC followed a disclosure made by Venkat Reddy himself three days ago to television channels that he had shelled down Rs.10 crore to TRS to purchase the Secunderabad ticket.
KCR has been asked to reply by 5 p.m. on April 2.
