South Connect: TN sports minister P Balakrishna Reddy resigns after conviction


Hours after Tamil Nadu Youth Welfare and Sports Development Minister P Balakrishna Reddy was convicted in a 1998 case for damaging public properties, he stepped down from his post in what came as an embarrassment for the ruling AIADMK government in the state. The resignation came shortly after Balakrishna Reddy visited the residence of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Palaniswami. The special court in Chennai, handling cases against MLAs and MPs, sentenced Balakrishna Reddy to a three-year jail term with a fine of Rs.10,000, paving the way for his disqualification as a member of the legislative assembly.
