TADEPALLI: Asserting that no one is above the law, Civil Supplies Minister Karumuri Nageswara Rao said the law has taken its own course in the demolition of the compound wall of TDP leader Ch Ayyanna Patrudu's house.
Speaking to the media at the party central office here on Sunday, the Minister said Ayyanna Patrudu had encroached land and Opposition Chief Chandrababu Naidu, who hijacked TDP from NT Rama Rao, has been politicizing the issue playing the BC card.
The Minister questioned why the government shouldn't take action against Ayyanna Patrudu who had encroached lands, just because he belongs to the BC community. He said Naidu had never given respect to BCs but always seen them as a vote bank and reminded the degoratory remarks made by Naidu against BCs.
The Minister also reminded how TDP leaders harassed women in the previous government and said their party leaders like Sadineni Yamini and Divya Vani left TDP because of it
The Minister said the Chief Minister is committed to the welfare and development of BCs and thus formed 56 BC Corporations and added that 70 percent of his Cabinet colleagues belong to BC, SC, ST, and minorities. He questioned Naidu about what did he do for BCs.
