YSR Congress chief urges PM to make IDS list public

IANS  |  Hyderabad 

YSR Party chief Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy on Thursday urged Prime Minister Modi to make public the list of individuals who declared their undisclosed income under Income Declaration Scheme 2016.

The Leader of Opposition in Andhra Pradesh said this was necessary as people in power were speaking in different voices, giving a misleading picture to the people.

Jagan drew the attention of the Prime Minister to Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu's statement, in which he claimed that Rs 13,000 crore were declared in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh and of which Rs 10,000 crore was declared by one individual.

He wondered how Naidu could make such a statement when Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) tweeted on Oct 3 that no break-up of declarations on the basis of trades/cities/states will be released.

"How is that Mr Chandrababu Naidu alone is privy to this information? If true, then the person declared should have been a 'benami' of Chandrababu Naidu, otherwise how can he be so specific on the numbers," wrote Jagan.

He reiterated his demand for a probe into allegations of corruption against Naidu.

He said Andhra Pradesh under Naidu has been ranked as the most corrupt state in the country by NCAER, New Delhi.

Jagan recalled that he had submitted to the Prime Minister a book, giving details of corruption charges against the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) government led by Naidu. He alleged that the money involved in corruption scandals is more than Rs 1.5 lakh crore. He said no action was taken on their representation so far.

The YSR Party Chief said Naidu was the only Chief Minister in the country who was continuing in power despite being caught red-handed while distributing 'ill-gotten' and 'unaccounted' black money to buy legislators.

Jagan's statement came a day after Naidu called for abolishing Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes and for doing away with all cash transactions to curb black money in the country.
