Congress senior leader JC Diwakar Reddy has reacted on the resignation demand of home minister Sabitha Indra Reddy. Mr Diwakar Reddy has said that it is home minister alone who should decide whether she would resign to the party or not. Also, he has said that it was unfortunate that allegations chargesheet was filed against some ministers.
The observers said JC Diwakar Reddy's statements subtly indicate that Sabitha Indra Reddy must resign from the post if she wants to. It is known that when CBI filed chargesheet against Sabitha Indra Reddy under several sections of IPC reportedly including IPC section 420 (cheating case), the home minister was presumably upset and hurt over 420 case filed against her. She even mentioned the same to the media that it had hurt her.
Following the chargesheet that made Sabitha Indra Reddy the fourth accused in Jaganmohan Reddy's illegal assets case, the home minister decided to step down from her post but then she took her decision back as chief minister reportedly wanted her not to resign.
