Hyderabad, Mar 4 : Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) Working President K T Rama Rao has found fault with Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu for condemning the raids on IT Grids Private Limited by the Hyderabad Cyber Crime police.

Reacting to the raids on IT Grids during a press conference held at Telangana Bhavan on Monday, Mr Rao said that the police had registered a case against IT firms engaged by Telugu Desam Party (TDP) based on a complaint lodged by Thummala Lokeshwar Reddy of Hyderabad. Based on the complaint, Cyberabad police have begun their investigation, Rao said and added that there was no business here for Andhra Pradesh police who tried to detain Reddy.

Quoting an example, Mr Rao, son of Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao, said that 'if a foreigner lost his purse in Amaravathi, a case would be registered in Amaravathi only and not in their country'.

It may be noted here that Mr Lokeshwar Reddy lodged a complaint that the IT firms was given access to confidential data of voters, which was later integrated with “Sevamitra” App, an official TDP app developed by IT Grids for registering its cadre. Further, the complainant stated that the firm restored to theft of data of over 3.70 crore voters in AP and it was misused by the developers, who were promoting ruling TDP through the App. Based on his complaint, a case has been registered under the IPC and the Information Technology Act and investigation had started.

Reacting on the Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) President Capt Uttam Kumar Reddy’s remarks against TRS that it is encouraging defections, Mr Rama Rao said that the Congress MLAs—Athram Sakku and Rega Kantha Rao have announced openly that they will join TRS for the development of Tribals.

They also announced that they will resign to their MLA posts If necessary, he said. Mr Rao also asked the Congress party on public representatives joining the Congress was a 'purchase'. (UNI)
