Hyderabad: In a blunt admission, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy has confessed that political corruption is very real.
Addressing the civil services probationers at an event in Hyderabad on Tuesday, Reddy said: "Excess money with the politicians always comes back into the system during elections. So do not worry too much about political corruption."
Reddy did not just stop there and went on to tell the future administrators of the country: "I am not saying encourage political corruption. Honesty should be there... There are other forms of corruptions that we must be very careful about, which does not come back into the system.``
The blunt yet deplorable remarks by Reddy come at a time when the political parties are making all efforts to stay out of Right to Information Act ambit.
Reddy`s remarks have drawn flak from audience, with some calling his off-the-cuff admission as regrettable and unfortunate.
