Former CBI joint director and Janasena party leader VV Lakshmi Narayana came up with a strong riposte to YSRCP leader Vijay Sai Reddy’s baseless statements. It is a known fact that Janasena contested in all 175 assembly segments of Andhra Pradesh in this elections by forming an alliance with BSP and Left parties. But, Vijay Sai Reddy claimed that Janasena contested alone only in 65 constituencies. He added that JD Lakshmi Narayana is making tall claims about winning 88 seats and questioned him whether he is making them at the behest of Chandra Babu Naidu.
Reacting strongly, Lakshmi Narayana slammed Vijay Sai Reddy for not getting the facts rights before commenting. He asserted that Janasena contested alone in 140 seats and with an alliance in remaining segments. In his two tweets, JD countered Reddy’s false statements and asked him to correct his numbers. He also pointed out that being a chartered accountant Vijay Sai Reddy should get his facts and figures rights before making any statements.
JD Lakshmi Narayana joined Twitter immediately just before elections and is regularly updating his followers about his activities. Many expected that he wouldn’t react to Vijay Sai Reddy’s statements. Surprisingly, he countered with a perfect retort.
