Congress demands Resignation of Naidu

New Delhi, June 8: Seeking his resignation from the post of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister, Congress has come down heavily on N Chandrababu Naidu after the release of an audio tape of a purported telephonic conversation between him and nominated Telangana legislator Elvis Stephenson.

Reacting to the new turn in cash-for-vote scam Congress leader Pramod Tiwari said a case should immediately be registered against Naidu. Speaking tonnis, Tiwari also hit out at TDP's coalition partner in the state- BJP.

"Cash for vote is a crime. Buying vote from someone and giving money against that is crime according to Indian Penal Code. Case should be registered and proper investigation should be done against this. He should resign immediately from his post. BJP's morality is now under question as they are in coalition. BJP teaches lesson to each and every one. What are they doing now? BJP should break the alliance and demand for investigation", said Congress leader Pramod Tiwari.

During the conversation, Naidu purportedly assured the nominated member that he is with him. This came after Telangana TDP legislator A. Revanth Reddy was arrested by the ACB on May 31 when he was offering Rs.50 lakh to Stephenson to make him vote for TDP-BJP candidate in the elections to Telangana legislative council.
