Lok Satta Party founder-president Jayaprakash Narayan sought to know whether Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu would offer his resignation if the voice in the audio tapes related to cash-for-vote case is proved to be his.
“How can a person in the post of Chief Minister hide behind technicalities that the voice in the audio tape is not his, but a fabricated one and that it is a case of telephone tapping and would not stand legal scrutiny? The technicalities for establishing a crime cannot be equated with the ethical standards those in public life should adhere to,” he said.
He also demanded an impartial investigation by CBI under the supervision of Lokpal as both Mr. Naidu and Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao were treating police and Anti Corruption Bureaus in their States as their personal institutions.
Criticising the TRS president too for encouraging defections, he said KCR should explain how his party’s strength in Assembly increased from 63 to 77 and who elected them.
