Visakhapatnam: The YSRCP, on 12 August, suspended senior party leader Koyya Prasad Reddy on charges of land grabbing. The former chairman of Andhra Pradesh Technology Services had misused the name of the party general secretary and Rajya Sabha MP, V. Vijay Sai Reddy, to settle land deals.
The YSRCP's disciplinary committee which heard several complaints against Prasad Reddy announced his suspension after due inquiry. An official statement by the party said the leader, who hailed from Visakhapatnam, was suspended from the party immediately.
In a stern warning, the party central office has asked all its leaders to refrain from making land deals or get involved in land grabbing by misusing the names of the party, Parliament members, and senior leaders.
