Hyderabad: Former Minister Eatala Rajender who was dropped from the State Cabinet on Sunday over allegations of his involvement in encroachment of about 66 acres of land in Medak district, said on Monday that he would take legal recourse against the alleged witch-hunt by the State government against him.
He said he was ready to resign from the MLA’s post, but will take a final decision after discussing the issue with the people of Huzurabad constituency.
Speaking to mediapersons here, Rajender reiterated his demand for a probe into the allegations and also his properties by a sitting judge. He said he was willing to even resign from the TRS party but would not forgo self-respect. “I will not be cowed down by arrests and cases, and am ready to face any consequence if found guilty. I am not so small to be unsettled by such tactics as I have walked the path of Statehood movement along with Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao for 19 years,” he said.
On the allegation of land-grabbing and encroachment in Achampet and Hakimpet villages of Masaipet mandal in Medak district, the former Minister alleged that the entire administration ignored the established norms and did not serve him any notice or sought any explanation before finalising the survey and submitting a report to the government.
