The AP Police arrested two persons – both diehard supporters of the Telugu Desam – for collecting money promising government jobs. After having taken the money, they began throwing the blame on Chief Minister’s chief advisor Ajaya Kallam and Mangalagiri’s YSRCP MLA Alla Ramakrishna Reddy.
The police have arrested Gali Venkata Lawrence, who was a PA to a TDP MLC, for collecting Rs 23 lakh from one Karamcheti Manikanth with the promise of getting him a government job. He was promised a job in the electrical department. Though he took the money three years ago, Lawrence failed to provide him with a job and Manikanth approached the police on October 19. On inquiry it was found that Lawrence and one Kolapalli Sunil and Koppuri Venu were involved in this racket.
To sidetrack the issue , they began spreading rumours that Ajeya Kallam and RK were taking money to provide government jobs. On seeing Whatsapp posts about this, Ajeya Kallam lodged a complaint with the police. On inquiry, the TDP links were discovered. The police have arrested Lawrence and Koppuri Venu.
