CM consulted on Dharmana future

Roads and Buildings Minister Dharmana Prasada Rao
The Congress High Command has started consulting the Chief Minister, Mr N. Kiran Kumar Reddy and PCC chief, Mr Botsa Satyanarayana, on steps to be taken in the wake of the roads and buildings minister Dharmana Prasada Rao submitting his resignation following the CBI’s chargesheet against him in the Jagan Mohan Reddy illegal investments case.

The PCC chief Botsa has left for Delhi on Monday to have one-on-one meetings with party leaders.

Dharmana’s resignation is not the only issue, said a source.

“The High Command is expected to look into the role of other ministers too who are yet to be named by the CBI,” said a source.
The decision on Dharmana will be crucial, as it will send a signal to other ministers to follow suit if they are named.

In a related development, 10 Cabinet ministers met at the residence of tourism minister Vatti Vasanth Kumar on Monday night.
