MAA Controversy: Sivaji Raja Challenges To Sell Property
“I’ve been part of MAA for the past 25 years and it’s been a year since I’ve taken charge of the committee. I can proudly say that I haven’t misused even 5 paise from the MAA funds. Is it’s proved that I’m misusing my authority to pocket money, I’m ready to give away all my property I swear on my children!” said Sivaji Raja.
It all started after Naresh accused the trio of swindling with the money and questioning how can they expect to raise only Rs 1 crore funds through a US event which has names Chiranjeevi, Mahesh Babu among other biggies. To this, the executive members of the MAA organised a press meet on Monday to clarify and come out with a clean image.
“The decision to award this contract to a US-based event organising firm was taken after an official board meeting. So there is no need for a fact-finding committee. Things are quite clear,” says MAA Treasurer Paruchuri Venkateswara Rao.
Meanwhile, Naresh has said that why the trio is aginst from setting up a fact committee if they are not at fault. To this, the trio said, “We are not afraid, which is why we have come in front of everyone to speak. We also have the full backing of people in the association,” the trio said.”
