In a curious twist to the No-Confidence Motion notice served by six Seemandhra Congress MPs, the signature of Rayapati Sambasiva Rao, MP has come under scrutiny, as it does not match the MP’s original signature.
In the following image, you can see Rayapati Sambasiva Rao’s original signature on his 2009 election affidavit. The signature on the right is the one that is present on the No-Confidence Motion notice given by these MPs to Lok Sabha speaker Miera Kumar. You can clearly see that these two signatures do not match at all.
So, the question that we should be asking is if someone has forged Rayapati Sambasiva Rao’s signature or did Rayapati deliberately use a different signature to escape from the consequences and deny his role in this drama at a later date.
Meanwhile, the much touted “No-Confidence Motion” may end up as a damp squib as it does not have the backing of about 50 odd members. There is no possibility of the Seemandhra camp mustering so many MPs at this stage.
It is also now clear that there is no unity among the Seemandhra MPs themselves as only 6 of the 19 Congress MPs from Seemandhra are participating in the no-confidence drama.
