Benami assets: Jana Poser to CM

Reacting to Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s statement that he would announce benami assets of political leaders, CLP leader K Jana Reddy asked the Chief Minister whether he would announce the names of only Congress leaders or all politicians.

In an informal talk, Jana Reddy said 50 percent benami assets were in the hands of officials, 30 percent with business men and rich people and 20 percent with political leaders. “Every one was indulging in corrupt practices”, he bemoaned. “Our MLAs didn’t fail in the Assembly but we are in the failed Assembly”, he quipped.
