Telangana TDP senior leader and Kodangal legislator Revanth Reddy has been chargesheeted for his alleged remarks against Chief Minister KCR. TRS leader and advocate Govardhan Reddy has lodged a complaint then in Banjara Hills Police. After preliminary investigation, police have booked cases and also a chargesheet. Cases have been booked against Revanth Reddy under IPC sections 504 (insulting public), 505 (degrading public representative). Cops have set two-day deadline for Mr Reddy to respond. Failing to respond within deadline would result in arrest of Revanth Reddy, said a police official.
It may be recalled that Revanth Reddy lashed out at KCR and TRS government over alleged corruption, allotment of land deals, electricity scarcity and KCR’s inefficiency as CM on various platforms. This seems to have prompted TRS leader to slap case against Opposition leader Revanth Reddy. Revanth has time and again reiterated that “cases” are not “new” against him and said it can’t “deter” him from “questioning” the government. Let’s see how Revanth respond to the latest issue.
