Visakhapatnam: The Congress on Friday demanded a Supreme Court-monitored CBI inquiry into the cash-for-vote scam and the alleged phone-tapping by the TRS government.
Addressing a media conference here, Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee President N Raghuveera Reddy said a CBI inquiry should be conducted under the supervision of Supreme Court to know the facts into the involvement of AP chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu in the scam and cash offered by TDP Legislator Revantha Reddy.
He also demanded CBI inquiry into the involvement of Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao over the phone tapping issue.
The leader alleged that Naidu is now raising the issue of implementation of Section 8 of AP Reorganisation Act to cover up his misdeeds in the scam.
"There are 138 sections in the Act and the government should implement all the sections along with Section 8 for the benefit of the people and the state," he said.
On the issue of special status for AP, Reddy said the state government and BJP should exert pressure on Centre in the upcoming Parliament session and also demand package for backward areas of the state as incorporated in the AP Reorganisation Act.
He also alleged that the state government has neglected farmers in the state and failed to waive off loans as promised by the TDP during the election campaigns.
