Congress MP Rayapati forced me : Tara Chowdary
Tara Chowdary exploded a bombshell. She told the police that Rayapati Sambasiva Rao, Congress Party MP had forced her several times to drag Minister Kanna Lakshminarayana into network. Rayapti allegedly asked her to file complaintagainst Kanna that the latter kidnapped her and hadrelations with her.
But Tara told police that she refused to do so because she never knew Kanna Lakshminarayana. Police released some tapes containing these and other conversations. However, there was no Rayapati voice in these tapes. Only Tara was talking to somebody on this issue.
“You belong to our community. You should help me fix Kanna Lakshminarayana,” Rayapati is reported to have asked her. Tara alleged that the MP and his brother threatened her several times to carry out the task, which she declined.
They even offered Rs 50 lakh to Rs 1 crore, Tara is supposed to have told police.
Rayapati Sambasiva Rao, however refuted the reports and said he had no connection whatsoever with Tara Chowdary. He demanded a CBI inquiry into the episode.
“She might have to come to me any time in the past, I wouldn’t know. Lot of people meet me everyday. As for my voice, anybody could have imitated it. If the CBI proves it is my voice, I will give a crore of rupees,” he said.
With Tara case taking a political turn, it would be interesting to see how the police would handle it. It would also be interesting to watch how Rayapati would come out of his muck.
