JC offers Volvo Bus for support!

Publish Date:Jan 23, 2014



It is not known whether the show-cause-notice served to JC Diwakar Reddy has been withdrawn or he was excused or kept on hold for a while. But, JC seems to returns to his usual form and gearing up to contest for Rajya Sabha elections.


He said “I am in the race only to make our high command realize how much support we enjoy. I have at least 40 members support. So, I am in the race for Rajya Sabha seat.”


During a casual chitchat with MLAs KTR and Akbaruddeen at Assembly premises today he said that he will give Volvo Bus, if they vote for him. Another Congress MLA Ugra Narasimha Reddy, who is also present around asked him if he is really serious about the offer?” and the reply is Yes.


The matter somehow leaked and when PCC President Botsa Satyanarayana warned that he will disqualify if vote for him, Ugra Narasimha Reddy giving explanation said “It is just a joke. After all, what will I do with Volvo Bus? Maintaining a Volvo is not that easy task.”


Later, JC said Why should I offer Volvo bus to anyone, when I have sufficient number of MLAs supporting my candidature? If at all, I have to offer Volvo bus to my enemies to ensure their support to me but not to my supporters.”


But, all this discussion reveals that to get a MLA support will cost an Volvo Bus or say its equivalent amount anywhere between Rs.80 lakhs to 1 crore. If, so for winning a Rajya Sabha seat one must have at least 40 MLAs support, which means 40 Volvo buses or Rs. 40 crore! If so, what could be the cost of Lok Sabha, MLA and MLC seats and how much returns can be expected for the investment?
