HYDERABAD – Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao (KCR) called an news conference on Thursday and presented a series of videos that backed his party’s MLA poaching charges against the BJP.

Presenting the four MLAs, who had supposedly thwarted an attempt to buy them out, KCR said he had more than an hour of hidden camera footage that implicated the BJP. He played five minutes of the tapes at the news conference, reported NDTV.

He scaled up his attack on the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, alleging that “Delhi brokers” tried to bribe the four MLAs of his Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) party.

The reference was to last week’s incident that took place at a farmhouse in Telangana, that has set off a political storm in the state ahead of a key by-poll that was held today in a test for his party as it gears up to go national.

KCR said the videos were evidence that the busted meeting at the farmhouse was a poaching operation because the brokers mentioned Union Home Minister Amit Shah “20 times”, PM Modi “thrice” and referenced the change in government in Karnataka.

Requesting the judiciary to “save the country”, he said he would be sending the videos to top judges of the Supreme Court, High Courts and opposition leaders. KCR alleged the BJP was trying to topple governments in Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Delhi and Rajasthan.

The BJP has denied allegations of poaching, declaring that it was a drama “scripted, directed and produced” by the Chief Minister. The BJP has also approached the court and the Election Commission.
