Speaker Thammineni Seetharam reacts to Atchannaidu’s arrest
AP Assembly Speaker Thammineni Seetharam on Friday said it was not right for him to speak without verifying the facts about the probe into the Rs 150 crore ESI scam. Speaking to the media, Seetharam stated that arrested TDP MLA Atchannaidu has to prove himself if he did not commit wrong. He mentioned that he will speak to the media after receiving the ESI scam report from the ACB. Atchannaidu was taken into custody by the ACB at Nimmada in Srikakulam district on Friday morning. The investigating agency also took five more persons into custody in the scam.
