Sebastian expresses doubts over Governor’s queries
One of the accused in sensational cash-for-vote scam, R Harry Sebastian expressed doubts over the queries of Governor E S L Narasimhan over the case. Sebastian asked why the Governor is seeking copies of charge sheet, while the case is under trial in the court. Addressing a press conference at press club here on Friday, Sebastian said the Governor remained silent till now over the case.
“Though it is big issue, the Governor remained silent when the issue cropped up. But now all of a sudden, he is asking for charge sheet copies” he questioned. Sebastian felt the Telangana government may be thinking of taking action against the accused in the case. He also said that he was facing threat from Telangana government and he had filed a petition in court seeking security.
Meanwhile, Telangana Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) has submitted additional charge sheet in the cash-for-vote case recently. It is learnt that the ACB mentioned conversations between Sebastian and an MLA in the charge sheet and it was allegedly submitted to Governor E S L Narasimhan by Telangana government officials.
Flaying Opposition leader and YSR Congress president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy, Sebastian said that the news of Governor seeking case details was published in a Telugu Daily, owned by Y S Jagan, only.
“This may be evident that Y S Jagan was conspiring over the case to embarrass Andhra Pradesh government” he said and added “Jagan was conspiring to topple the government and belittle Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu”. However, Sebastian said he intended to meet Governor on the issue, sooner than later.
