I refer to the post made in Chronicle at about Noon today carrying the report of Mr. Sreenivasa Murty of Hyd. on what according to him transpired on 29/1. Let me make it clear that I am not at all concerned with the controversy going on in the matter.
I would however like your readers to be informed that Mr. Murty's statement that our Federation's Senior Counsel Shri. Sriram Panchu was present in the court on 29/1 is an absolutely wrong. As a matter of fact Shri Panchu took ill with bronchial problem immediately on his return to Chennai after the previous hearing on 20/1 and he has told me that he cannot perhaps attend any hearing during whole of Feb.
