Andhra Pradesh government was in no way involved in the massive accounting fraud at Satyam Computer, Finance Minister K Roasaih has said. "The State government has nothing to do with the Satyam Computer issue. The Centre was looking into the issue," he told reporters in Vijayawada on Friday evening.
The minister was responding to Opposition parties' charge that the Congress Government was involved in the scandal at the Hyderabad-based software firm. "Instead of giving suggestions how to revive Satyam Computer and protect the interest of its 53,000 employees, Opposition parties were making baseless allegations against the government," Roasaih said.
The `108' emergency services in the state, currently maintained by EMRI Satyam Group Trust, would not be affected in wake of the financial fraud, he said. Many philanthropists and organisations are coming forward to support and run the emergency services (which can be availed by dialing 108), the minister said.
