Atchannaidu drags Modi & Telangana in ESI scam

The news of ESI scam in AP broke out in a sensational manner as Vigilance and Enforcement department has claimed that TDP leader Atcchannaidu has a hand in this scandal. Learning about this, the TDP MLA reacted on it.

"This news was first leaked by Sakshi media and government. Later many news channels have covered," said Atchannaidu and added that he did nothing wrong and he followed what Prime Minister Modi's orders on ESI.

"Back in 2016, PM Modi organized a meeting related to ESI. He asked all the states to use technology for ESI services and regarding the same government of India has written to states. The summary of the letter is to use Tele Health services in respective states and in a review meeting with officials, I asked them to follow the Centre's orders," said Atchannaidu.

The TDP leader said he enquired about Tele Health services whether any other state in the country is using it or not. As the officials informed that Telangana government is using, Atchannaidu asked the officials to follow the orders.

"Being a minister it is a responsibility and after thorough enquiry on Tele Health services, I directed the officials to implement it like how Telangana is doing. Accordingly a note is issued with my signature on it. The note clearly mentioned about Telangana using Tele Health services," added Atchannaidu.

The Tekali MLA blamed the YSRCP government for deliberately dragging his name even though he has done no wrong and added that he is ready for any kind of probe.
