CLARIFICATION ON CERTAIN COMMENTS MADE BY SRI K. CHANDRASEKHAR RAO LEADER OF T.R.S. DURING HIS PRESS MEET ON 23-3-2010.

Today certain statements were made by Sri K. Chandrasekhara Rao (telecast on certain channels) wherein he alleged that the Government is trying to misuse the Anti-Corruption department for prosecuting noted TNGO leaders who are taking an active part in Telangana agitation. It was also further alleged that the D.G. ACB had received clear instructions in this regard and that the DG ACB had also given instructions to field officers accordingly.It is to clarify that it is totally untrue to say that the ACB has received any instructions from the Government to harass the TNGO leaders. It is also untrue to say that such instructions were given to field officers during the ACB meetings. ACB is a totally professional organization where officers of all regions are working and the field officers are mainly from the native ranges/districts only. The ACB`s approach to identify corrupt officer is based on certain standard parameters which have been evolved over a period of time and they cannot be subjected to any capricious changes either due to the whims and fancies of the officers or due to any other extraneous reasons. The computing procedure for identifying the disproportionate assets etc., is very scientific and it cannot be misused. It is very unfortunate that a very senior leader chose to make some damaging allegations on ACB which undoubtedly are in correct.
