Claiming that Rama Rao would be taking oath as CM, he demanded money from them for erecting hoardings at the LB Stadium here and issuing advertisements in media in connection with the swearing-in ceremony, it said.

Using this modus operandi, he cheated firms and collected an amount of Rs 39,22,400, the release said.

Sleuths of Commissioner's Task Force, North Zone Team apprehended him on Saturday.

He was arrested in 10 cases earlier and was released on bail, but he did not change his attitude after coming out of prison, it added.

Rama Rao, son of Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, is the working president of the ruling TRS.
