Hyderabad: Main Opposition Telugu Desam
Party (TDP) Monday requested Andhra Pradesh Governor E S L
Narasimhan to immediately sack the state ministers whose names
figured in the confession statements of liquor syndicate
members as having received bribes.

A delegation of TDP legislators, led by their chief N
Chandrababu Naidu, met the Governor in the Raj Bhavan in the
afternoon and submitted a memorandum to this effect.

"Since the Chief Minister failed to take any action
against his colleagues, you have to intervene and remove the
tainted Ministers from the Cabinet," the delegation told
Narasimhan.

Later talking to newspersons, Naidu said they have
submitted material evidence to Narasimhan against the
Ministers who were said to have received kickbacks from the
liquor syndicates.

"I haven`t seen such a weak and inefficient Chief
Minister in my political career. He is afraid of taking action
against the ministers as it will destabilise his government,"
the Leader of Opposition said.

Earlier in the day, the TDP stalled Assembly
proceedings on the same issue.

Meanwhile, reacting to Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS)
President K Chandrasekhar Rao`s allegation that he (Naidu)
possessed huge `benami` (illegal) properties, the TDP leader
dared the former to prove the charge. "I will give away such
property, if any, to KCR if he can prove it."

The former CM hit back at Rao, saying he was hand-in-
glove with YSR Congress President Y S Jaganmohan Reddy. "What
Jagan says today, KCR reiterates tomorrow. He speaks one thing
in the morning and another in the evening."
