Just two days after the Supreme Court refused to stay the AP High Court order in the case of AP’s former State Election Commissioner Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar whose term was cut short by AP state government, Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar’s private meeting with BJP Kamma Leaders MP Sujana Chowdary and BJP leader and former minister Kamineni Srinivas at a star hotel in Banjara Hills has come into the light. This private meeting of Sujana Chowdary and Kamineni Srinivas with Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar has stroked a political controversy.
Ruling YSRCP, which has been alleging favouritism by SEC Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar towards opposition TDP, has now got a short in the arm with the reports of latest meeting.
On June 13th, at around 10.40 AM, Nimagadda, Kamineni and Sujana had met at a private suit room in the star hotel. The video footage of the three entering into the star hotel – one after the other – has leaked online. Since Sujana Chowdary, former TDP leader and close confidante of Naidu, and Kamineni had good bond with Chandrababu, the meeting of the trio has kicked up a political debate.
With reports of Centre’s support to Nimmagadda, the meeting of Sujana and Kamineni with Nimmagadda has also fueled the speculations.
