The BRS MLA Pilot Rohith Reddy accused the BJP government of coercing and taming him to join the party. He said he would not budge to those pressure tactics. The BRS leader said the BJP was behind the Enforcement Directorate notices to him.
The two-day investigation was done without any rhyme or reason. The ED officials were not clear why he was summoned and what they sought to know from him. The notices were just aimed to terrify him, his family members and his party leaders, he said.
The ED was harassing him and his family members causing mental tension. Rohith Reddy said as he exposed the BJP in the MLAs poaching case and the SIT sent notices to the top brass of the BJP, now they are taking revenge against him by instigating ED.
He said it was strange that the very complainant is being grilled and tortured. “I will not succumb to the pressure tactics of BJP and will remain with BRS forever,” he asserted.
