The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has revoked the Indian citizenship of Telangana Rashtra Samithi MLA Chennamaneni Ramesh accusing him of misrepresenting and concealing facts and securing citizenship by fraud.
The MHA said that Chennamaneni had German citizenship and did not fulfil the criteria for seeking Indian citizenship in 2009, the India Today reported. Congress leader A Srinivas had filed against him by challenging his election as a legislator.
“It is not conducive to the public good that Dr Ramesh Chennamaneni continues to be a citizen of India under Section 10 of the Citizenship Act, 1955 decides that Dr Ramesh Chennamaneni ceases to be a Citizen of India,” the MHA noted in a fresh order on November 20th, 2019.
