Jagan paying public money to advocates for personal cases, says Bonda


Telugu Desam Party (TDP) politburo member, Bonda Umamaheswara Rao, on Tuesday said that the Chief Minister, Jagan Mohan Reddy, for the past three-and-half years has been wasting public money on court cases to pay to the advocates to argue his personal cases.

Talking to media persons at the TDP headquarters here, Umamaheswara Rao said that any State Government engages private advocates and spends public money to argue cases either in the respective High Courts or in the Supreme Court for the interest of its own people like fighting for irrigation projects. But after Jagan has come to power in the State, he is paying crores of rupees public money to the advocates to argue CBI and Enforcement Directorate (ED) cases pending against him or his family members, he stated. These advocates are engaged even for petty cases paying them huge amount as fee, which is public money, Bonda Uma said.

The TDP politburo member recalled that an NGO challenged the Green Tribunal order on Polavaram project before the Supreme Court and the State Government has engaged the services of the senior advocate, Abhishek Singhvi, and since he could not take up the case, the services of Venkataramaiah, another senior advocate, have been engaged on a war footing basis. Even the apex court has expressed surprise at the style of functioning of the State Government, he said, adding that no other State Government in the country engaged the services of private advocates to argue government cases.

The private advocates appointed by Jagan charged Rs 1 lakh per hour and pointing this out, the Supreme Court too said that notices have to be served on the State seeking explanation for spending so much of public money this way, Uma stated. How many times both the High Court and the Supreme Court had pulled up the State Government, but it has not learnt any lesson till now, he observed.

Bonda Uma demanded that a white paper be published on the number of cases the State Government has won till now by engaging the services of private advocates. Another senior advocate, Mukul Rohatgi, was engaged by paying a whooping Rs 5 cr only to damage Amaravati, he pointed out and asked what the Advocate General, Sriram and Additional Advocate General, Sudhakar, are doing.

The TDP strongly condemns this kind of wastage of public money the State Government, Umamaheswara Rao said and asked as to why no senior advocate has been appointed to argue the State’s rights mentioned in the Reorganisation Act. What happened to the assets that are due from the neighbouring State of Telangana as per the Reorganisation Act and what cases are filed to fight for the rights of the State, he asked.

YSRCP’s Days Are Numbered: TDP


M.S. Rao

The TDP Politburo member, Bonda Umamaheswara Rao, said that the days of the YSRCP were numbered, while addressing a press conference here at party office.

The people of the State were disgusted at the functioning of the YSRCP leaders as the party has taken birth on high corruption and false propaganda, Umamaheswara Rao said. He observed that, the people had chased away the Ministers and the YSRCP MLAs during the ‘Gadapa Gadapaku’ (door-to-door) programme of YSRCP in the State.

“The was a mockery on democracy, ever since the YSRCP came to power in the State. The police played the role of a spectator when the Chief Minister, Jagan Reddy, his Cabinet colleague, Peddireddy Ramachandra Reddy, Bharath, MLC and Vidyasagar Rao, Kuppam Marketing Committee chairman, blatantly murdered the democratic values,” Bonda Uma alleged.

The YSRCP goondas attacked the TDP activists during the recent visit of Nara Chandrababu Naidu, TDP president to Kuppam. The ruling party resorted to physical attacks on TDP activists and damaged the Anna Canteen besides setting on fire the TDP banners, he said.

Some YSRCP leaders behaviour is very shameless, says TDP


Former MLA and senior TDP leader Bonda Umamaheswara Rao on Thursday felt that the behaviour of some of the YSRCP leaders is very despicable and the video of Hindupur Lok Sabha member Gorantla Madhav that is going viral on social media speaks volumes about the reprehensible conduct of their party leaders.

Umamaheswara Rao told media persons here that the behavior of YSRCP MPs, Ministers, former ministers, MLAs and other party leaders is very disgusting. The YCP leaders are acting so disorderly. When the video of Madhav sexually abusing a woman is going viral on social media, he is shamelessly denying the fact, Umamaheswara Rao said.

Can another YSRCP MP Vijayasai now tweet not to take action against Madhav, the TDP leader asked. As per the election affidavit, cases under Section 376, Section 302 and Section 506 are pending against Gorantla Madhav, Bonda Uma pointed out.

In fact, it is Chief Minister Jaganmohan Reddy, who is responsible for this kind of sickening behaviour of his party MPs, his Cabinet colleagues, former ministers, MLAs and other YSRCP leaders, he stated.

“In the past too, we all have witnessed the video in which Minister Ambati Rambabu made some objectionable remarks against a woman. Jagan Mohan Reddy shamelessly accommodated him in his Cabinet, the TDP leader remarked.

The audio of another YSRCP leader Avanti Srinivas telling a girl, “Come in half an hour, I will send you back in half an hour” also went viral. “We all know how Jogi Ramesh, another party leader, sexually abused woman volunteers in a drunken state in Pedana,” the former MLA said adding that these are the facts before the people and not allegations made by the TDP.

Observing that there is no protection for women in the State, Bonda Uma said the present condition in the State is such that women are now afraid of coming out of their houses. It is becoming difficult for women to escape from persons like Gorantla Madhav, he remarked. When a fellow MP is threatening women in New Delhi with such objectionable vidoes what Vijaya Sai Reddy is doing there, he asked.

TDP dares Jagan to seek ‘fresh mandate’ on Capital shifting


TDP former MLA Bonda Umamaheswara Rao on Friday asserted that the people of Andhra Pradesh would get justice in the courts of law even though the AP Governor signed the two Capital shifting bills despite the blatant Constitutional violations resorted to by the YSRCP Government in this regard. He said the Governor-approved bills would not stand in the court as they were in utter violation of the AP Reorganisation Act 2014 and only aimed at creating regional differences and disturbances to divide people along political lines.

The TDP leader questioned the Constitutionality of the bills and challenged Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy to seek a fresh mandate. The CM should go for re-election immediately if he was so confident of the public approval of his decision to create 3 Capitals. The CM himself gave his nod for Amaravati as the one and only Capital City for AP prior to the 2019 election. As Opposition leader at that time, Mr. Jagan Reddy said on the floor of the Assembly that he was accepting Amaravati as Capital to avoid regional differences but now he took a total U-turn on this.

Mr. Bonda Uma dared the YSRCP to dissolve the Assembly and face fresh elections on the plank of creating 3 Capitals for the State. When Jagan Reddy could not finish Amaravati Capital, where 80 percent of works were already completed, it was highly doubtful that the CM could construct 3 Capitals now. In the past 14 months, Jagan Reddy has not spent a single rupee for development of Visakhapatnam and Rayalaseema. Nobody has any confidence in his leadership any more. The CM has taken a Tughlaq decision to shift Capital and stick to that without realising the injustice that he is going to do to the people of the State.

The TDP leader appealed to the AP people to see through the vicious plans of Mr. Jagan Reddy who was hell bent on providing regional feelings in North Coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema regions. Over 34,000 farmers sacrificed their ancestral lands for the construction of Amaravati Capital but this CM has not recognised their sacrifice till now. Over Rs. 10,000 Cr was spent on Amaravati works already but the CM has no heart to accept its rich potential to emerge as a global city in future.
