Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) working President K. T. Rama Rao has slapped legal notices on Minister Konda Surekha, MLA Yennem Srinivas Reddy and another Congress leader K.K. Mahender Reddy for alleging that the former has a role in the ‘phone tapping’ controversy.

In separate notices to the three Congress leaders including the Minister, Mr. Rama Rao said the ruling party leaders were repeatedly making the same allegation about his alleged involvement in the ‘phone tapping’ case. The Congress leaders were asked to respond to the notice within a week failing which the BRS leader threatened to file defamation suite in the court.

“Despite my clarification that I have nothing to do with the issue, leaders still continue to point a finger at me,” he said.

Mr. Rama Rao demanded these leaders to tender ‘unconditional’ apology forthwith and refrain from dragging his name again in the issue. The BRS working President also sent legal notices to certain online media houses and Youtube channels, which carried what he called ‘unverified and false’ news.
