Naidu-YCP plans to attract liquor lovers votes


It is near impossible to manage the polling day without distributing liquor to some voters. This is why the rival leaders are giving so much focus to the liquor issue in the present Tirupati bypoll campaign. Especially TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu is making a repeated mention of how high rates are destroying the families of liquor lovers in AP. The poor people are also suffering on account of unhealthy and cheap liquor brands being supplied in the State right now.

Naidu’s plan is obviously to attract the liquor lovers’ vote bank. On their part, the ruling YCP leaders are coming out with their unique solution to humour drunkards. They know pretty well how much anti-YCP feeling is going on among the liquor lovers in the Tirupati parliamentary segment. But the good point is that the memory of the drunkards is very short and they can easily be influenced if they are given free liquor in the last few days of the polling day.

Now, the TDP’s only worry is that the YCP leaders are changing their strategy this time. They are not going to give AP liquor to the voters. The YCP leaders are trying to bring illegal liquor from Tamil Nadu in a big way. This will be supplied free of cost to the voters prior to the polling day.

As a final appeal, the TDP leaders are cautioning that if the voters fall victim to Tamil Nadu liquor, then nobody can save them from the YCP regime.

Stone pelting in Naidu’s Tirupati campaigning, Naidu sits on flash dharna

Stones were pelted by unknown persons at TDP chief and former AP CM N Chandrababu Naidu on Monday (today) while he was addressing a public meeting in Tirupathi to campaign for TDP candidate Panabaka Laxmi for the upcoming Tirupati Lok Sabha bypoll on April 17.

This incident created a flutter in the meeting.

Angry TDP activists raised “Jagan down down” slogans to protest the attack on their leaders. They alleged that YSRCP activists attacked Naidu.

Chandrababu also took this incident very seriously and resorted to a flash dharna at the venue.

He sat on the road demanding action against the culprits.

Though police tried hard to convince Naidu to withdraw his protest, he refused to relent.

TDP leaders and cadre also sat on the road along with Naidu in protest.

Naidu said if police fail to give protection to him who is covered under Z-plus security cover, how could they give protection to common people.

Naidu said under Jagan’s rule rowdyism is flourishing in Andhra Pradesh and urged voters to defeat YSRCP in Tirupati to end rowdy rule in the state.

YCP targets Naidu-Pawan on Special Status


The YCP election campaign has slowed down a bit ever since Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy cancelled his April 14 public meeting in Tirupati. The local leaders, MLAs and Ministers are campaigning locally. But their campaign is not matching with that being carried out by Chandrababu Naidu and Lokesh themselves. The Sakshi media is doing its bit to attack the Opposition with its stinging articles everyday.

The latest attack by the YCP and the Sakshi media on the TDP is regarding the so called ‘secret deals’ between the TDP and the Jana Sena. The ruling party is asserting that Chandrababu Naidu and Pawan Kalyan are not criticising each other in the present election campaign. They owed an explanation to the public.

The YCP leaders are asking why Naidu and Pawan are not questioning the BJP leaders on the issue of Special Category Status promise made to AP. It was a fact that in the 2014 election, Chandrababu and Pawan Kalyan shared dais with PM Modi all across the State. At that time, Modi and BJP leaders repeatedly made promises on the Special Status.

Instead of bringing pressure on the Modi regime, the TDP and the Jana Sena are bringing pressure on the YCP regime in AP. In final analysis, it is clear that Special Status has just become an empty election issue that will remain an unfulfilled dream for the AP people.

Book SC, ST case against Naidu: YCP to DGP


It all looks like an atrocities case is going to be booked against TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu himself this time. Already, tens of cases have been filed against the TDP leaders across the State under the SC, ST atrocities act. Now, YCP MP Nandigam Suresh and his party Dalit MLAs have met and complained to DGP Gautham Sawang against Naidu. They sought filing of an atrocities case against the TDP chief for passing insulting comments on YCP Tirupati MP nominee Dr. Gurumurthy.

The YCP leaders say that a posting was made on social media to defame and humiliate Dr. Gurumurthy. The TDP handiwork is suspected behind this. Nandigam Suresh told the DGP that Chandrababu Naidu and Nara Lokesh might be involved in this defamatory posting.

As such, they sought SC, ST atrocities cases and also charges under the cyber laws. The complaint comes amidst the rising political heat in the State. The TDP and the BJP are making all out efforts to give a tight fight to the YCP in the Tirupati electioneering.

The YCP, which is cool and confident of victory till yesterday, has now launched threats once again to intimidate the Opposition and thereby to win with a massive majority.

Police harassing TDP cadres in temple attack case: Naidu

Telugu Desam Party (TDP) supremo and former chief minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu wrote to Andhra Pradesh director general of police (DGP) Gautam Sawang alleging that police are harassing the opposition party cadres in the latest temple attack case.

Naidu alleged that instead of arresting the culprits involved in the desecration of Subramanya Swamy temple at Petagunta village in Gonuguru gram panchayt, 40 TDP leaders have been picked up by the police.

“Police instead of arresting the culprits are harassing opposition TDP leaders for seeking justice. On Tuesday evening, police had lifted 40 leaders from TDP and moved them from one police station to another without even giving them food,” claimed Naidu on Wednesday.

According to the TDP chief, only late in the night did police serve a notice under section 160, even as all the 40 belong to four villages who command respect, including some of them working as sarpanches earlier.

He highlighted that some of the rounded up cadres are contesting the MPTC polls.

“While such notice itself is ridiculous, registration of cases against TDP leaders under FIR No. 69/2021, Kuppam police station is risible. Additionally, TDP leaders who came to the police station to apprise the police about the gruesome happenings were also booked in the above case,” he claimed.

He alleged that Satyendra Sekhar, former AMC director, Raj Kumar, Kuppam urban TDP president and Kanipakam Vekatesh were also taken away by the police.

Naidu claimed that such filing of cases against opposition party leaders is reminiscent of the colonial raj.

“This action by the police is only illustrative of political vendetta being pursued by the ruling YSRC in connivance with a section of police,” claimed the former chief minister.

He appealed to Sawang to unilaterally remove the alleged false cases against TDP leaders and strive to nab the ‘real’ culprits.

Naidu also demanded an inquiry against those police personnel who allegedly acted highhandedly against the TDP cadres.

Meanwhile, the TDP national president alleged that ever since June 2019, increased attacks are occurring on religious places in the southern state.

“It appears that the miscreants and anti-social elements are encouraged by the lukewarm response from the government with regard to temple attacks,” Naidu alleged, referring to the Pentagunta incident.

Pentagunta incident was cracked by police within 24 hours, with the identification of a drunk mentally unstable woman indulging in the desecration of idols.

However, irrespective of the government of the day or the political party in power, temple offences occurred in Andhra Pradesh almost every year in the past five years, as per the statistics shared earlier by Director General of Police (DGP) Gautam Sawang.

Under the TDP government, 163 temple offences were reported in 2015, 139 in 2017, 123 in 2018 and 177 in 2019, when the government transitioned to the YSR Congress Party (YSRCP).

In 2020, a year which saw an uproar following the chariot burning at the Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy temple in Antarvedi, there were 143 alleged temple offences.

Jagan 1-day campaign, Naidu 4 days in Tirupati


The by-election campaign in the Tirupati by-election is picking up momentum. The April 17 poll is getting country-wide attention as it is considered a mini referendum on the Jagan regime. Despite this, Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy is planning to do such a one-day campaign. It is most likely on April 14. Whereas, TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu is starting his campaign from April 8 and is expected to continue it for four to five days.

The YCP is very confident of increasing its majority. Mr. Jagan Reddy has deployed one Minister each in all the seven assembly constituencies in the Tirupati parliamentary constituency. Moreover, the CM is heavily relying on the local strongmen like Peddireddy Ramachandra Reddy and Chevireddy Bhasker Reddy in the Chittoor district’s three segments and on Anil Kumar Yadav and Kakani Govardhan Reddy in the Nellore district’s four segments.

On the other hand, the TDP campaign has already been started by Nara Lokesh who has been doing door to door campaigns in the segments for the last four days. From today, Mr. Naidu will take over the TDP electioneering.

The YCP is silently doing its work in the respective segments with its money and muscle power. Whereas, the TDP is heavily dependent on raising awareness against the Jagan regime’s failures.

Nilam giving tensions to Naidu-Pawan from day one


As expected, the Opposition parties are strongly objecting to the decisions of State Election Commissioner Nilam Sawhney. In particular, the very first decision taken by Nilam goes directly against the demands of Jana Senani Pawan Kalyan. She has straightaway given notification for the ZPTC, MPTC polls without waiting for the court order on the case filed by the Jana Sena Party.

The JSP has petitioned the High Court seeking cancellation of the parishad polls held last year in view of the violations resorted to by the ruling party. The JPS sought a fresh notification for the parishad polls to ensure a free and fair poll now. However, Nilam Sawhney totally ignored this demand and started taking her decisions swiftly without taking the political parties into confidence.

Interestingly, Nilam called for an all party meeting to take their opinions on the parishad polls. But even before holding this meeting, she has released the notification. This is what has doubly irked Senani who is now swearing to take his fight to the next level.

Pawan has called for boycotting the all party called by Nilam. Already, the TDP is thinking of boycotting the ZPTC polls altogether. No wonder, Pawan will give strong counters to Nilam for her ‘alleged favours’ to Jagan right from day one.

Naidu under huge pressure to rediscover TDP


In the last leg of his long political career, former Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu is faced with a challenging task of saving the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) from the rival onslaught. In the Mahabharata, they say that there were countless reasons for the tragic end of Karna. In the case of the TDP too, there are too many challenges that appear almost unsolvable considering the ruthless attacks from the YCP, the BJP and the Jana Sena parties.

Amidst this, Mr. Naidu is under unforeseen pressure to rediscover his party and refurbish it from top to bottom. But the question is how to go about this. Usually, they say one needs a thorn to remove a thorn. Presently, the biggest real challenge for the TDP is to deal with the dangerous attack launched by CM Jagan Reddy and his party from micro and macro levels. The all round rowdyism, money and muscle power coupled with the captive religious vote bank have made Mr. Jagan Reddy an unchallengeable leader overnight after his victory in the 2019 election.

The pro-YCP commentators try to weaken the morale of Mr. Naidu by saying that only Jr. NTR would be able to breathe new life into the TDP. They are always ready to brand Nara Lokesh as inefficient. On the other hand, political analysts ask how Jr. NTR could face the mighty muscle power of Jagan Reddy. Even Pawan Kalya, who is known as the Power Star, could not stand the street power of the YCP and joined hands with the Modi-Shah duo to protect his cadres from the YCP political harassment.

Undoubtedly, Mr. Naidu’s immediate challenge seems to be preparing his party to match with the mob power of the YCP at the village, mandal, district and State levels. Along with this, the TDP must focus on socio-economic and political reengineering focusing on elimination of total opposition in favour of a single party existence.

Jagan puts an end to 4-decade old RESCO in Kuppam!


The YSRCP government in Andhra Pradesh headed by Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy has engaged in ‘vengeful politics’ against TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu right from Day-1 of assuming office.

It scrapped several schemes and projects of Naidu and reversed several decision of Naidu in these two years.

Latest, the YSRCP government has allowed APSPDCL to takeover Kuppam Rural Electric Cooperative Society Ltd (Kuppam RESCO) in Kuppam constituency represented by Naidu.

The state government did this citing APERC orders but everyone knows who appoints and controls APERC chairman and members.

APERC ordered cancellation of sale, distribution and retail licence of RESCO, which was set up in 1981 in Kuppam, with an aim to achieve 100% rural electrification in the backward and remote areas of Kuppam constituency.

There are 1.22 lakh shareholders in RESCO and 1.24 lakh electricity connections.

Naidu strongly objected to the takeover of RESCO by APSPDCL without any valid reasons.

Jagan ‘inaugurates’ Kurnool airport inaugurated by Naidu, becomes laughing stock!


When Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy ‘inaugurated’ Kurnool airport on Thursday (today), it raised many eyebrows.

Because Kurnool airport was inaugurated by TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu in January 2019 itself, when he was Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh.

This airport was conceived and developed by Naidu when he was CM at a cost of Rs 150 crore.

Despite this, the YSRCP government has displayed such a ‘build up’ as if this airport was developed by CM Jagan.

Not only people, even netizens trolled Jagan for ‘inaugurating’ Kurnool airport that was already inaugurated by Naidu more than two years ago.

Though Naidu inaugurated the airport he could not focus on launching flight services as Assembly elections followed immediately.

Naidu lost power and Jagan became CM in May 2019.

However, Jagan ignored Kurnool airport and never focussed on making the airport operational though he is set to complete two years as CM in another two months.

But Jagan all of a sudden attempted to take credit for Kurnool airport by doing ‘second inauguration’.

Instead of inauguration, it would have been apt if this tamasha was confined to the naming of airport after Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy, a freedom fighter from the region which now falls under Kurnool.

It would have been apt if Jagan opted for the launching of flight services from Kurnool airport on March 28 since Indigo airlines has agreed to operate flights to Bengaluru, Vizag and Chennai for March 28.

Ignoring all these, Jagan inaugurating Kurnool airport for second time has become a laughing stock in political and business circles.

When YSR failed, what can Jagan do: Lokesh on CID case

Telugu Desam Party (TDP) national general secretary Nara Lokesh took a jibe at Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy saying when his father Y.S. Rajasekhar Reddy could not do anything to his father N. Chandrababu Naidu then what could the current chief minister do.

Lokesh was referring to the alleged CID case on land grabbing from Dalits in Amaravati region.

“Your father could not do it, after all who are you Jagan Mohan Reddy? It is a habit for your family to file false cases against Naidus and get criticized by the Court,” claimed Lokesh late Friday.

He shared an 8-minute-long video furnishing details of the alleged attempts made by the Reddy family to implicate Naidu by lodging multiple cases in the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) Court and the Supreme Court.

The video claimed that all attempts to file alleged false cases against the TDP supremo have failed and stated that Naidu’s honesty is like a burning ember (nippu).

It is mentioned in the video that despite repeatedly failing, the YSR family is allegedly not stopping their attempts to implicate Naidu and tarnish the TDP supremo and former chief minister with alleged corruption charges which have always fallen flat.

They said cases have been filed against Naidu since 1999 by Rajasekhar Reddy which were dismissed by the Courts.

Lokesh alleged that Jagan Mohan Reddy failed to question the central government despite having 22 Members of Parliament (MPs) at his disposal.

“If YSRCP candidate wins in the Tirupati Parliamentary by-poll, it will be another mute voice but if TDP candidate Panabaka Laskhmi wins, it will be a voice that will raise questions on behalf of the people,” the TDP general secretary claimed.

The Scheduled Castes reserved high stakes seat of the Tirupati bypolls is scheduled on April 17 and all eyes in the state are on it.

On Friday, YSRCP founder and Chief Minister, Reddy, held a review meeting on the issue and told his party leaders and ministers that their candidate M. Gurumoorthy’s triumph should be so huge that the entire nation should take note of it.

Relief to Naidu, Narayana: AP High Court stays CID inquiry in Amaravathi land scam


In a major relief to TDP chief and former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu and former municipal minister P Narayana, the AP High Court today (Friday) issued stay orders on CID cases filed against him in Amaravathi land scam.

The AP High Court issued stay orders for four weeks and directed CID not to proceed against Naidu and Narayana.

The APCID had recently served notices on Chandrababu and Narayana and directed them to appear before it for inquiry on March 24 in connection with irregularities on assigned lands in the Amaravathi capital city project.

The CID also filed FIR against them.

Naidu and Narayana approached AP High Court against CID notices and FIR.

In their petitions, Naidu and Narayana told High Court that the YSRCP government in Andhra Pradesh had filed false cases against them out of ‘political vendetta’.

The HC agreed with the arguments made by the lawyers of Naidu and Narayana.

The HC directed CID to submit evidence against Naidu and Narayana on alleged irregularities in land pooling for Amaravathi.

It asked CID to inform what evidences they had gathered in their investigation.

However, the CID told HC that it cannot disclose details at this stage as the investigation is in the primary stage and if they were allowed to conduct full-fledged inquiry, they can gather all the details and evidence.

Tirupati battle will decide Jagan-Naidu fates?


There are one lakh acres of Government lands in and around Tirupati temple town. As such, it has got all the potential to become a vibrant capital city for Andhra Pradesh. Former MP Chinta Mohan says that he has placed this demand before the then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh but he has refused to acknowledge this. Even in Brahmamgari Kalagnanam, it was written that Tirupati would become the State Capital.

Chinta Mohan brought all these issues to the fore now ahead of the Tirupati bypoll. He says this by-election is going to be a crucial turning point in the history of not just AP but the whole India. Its result will decide the fates of both Jaganmohan Reddy and Chandrababu Naidu.

Chinta Mohan, who was a long time Congress MP from Tirupati, lost to the YCP in 2019. He entered the poll campaign once again launching a scathing attack on CM Jagan Reddy. Chinta Mohan dropped a bombshell saying that it was his close friend YSR who sowed the seeds for the Telangana movement in order to bring down the Kotla Vijayabhasker Reddy Government at that time. Afterwards, the agitation moved to the Osmania university from where KCR picked it up and continued it relentless till the State was separated.

Chinta Mohan said that there was no difference between Jagan and Modi. Jagan has supported the LIC bill in the Parliament without any principles.

Jagan picks HRC chairman, Naidu boycotts meet


CM Jaganmohan Reddy presided over the high level meeting held to select the new panel for the State Human Rights Commission (SHRC). Opposition Leader Chandrababu Naidu and Opposition Leader in AP Council Yanamala Ramakrishnudu boycotted the meeting. They condemned the unilateral and adamant manner in which the Jagan Reddy regime was dealing with the constitutional institutions.

The CM went ahead with the meeting which has selected Retired Judge Justice Mandati Sitarama Murthy as the SHRC Chairman. The Opposition leaders have expressed dissatisfaction at the Government’s indifference to the protection of the autonomy of the constitutional institutions like the SHRC. So many atrocities and human rights violations have taken place in the State but the Government did not allow the SHRC to act independently.

The Opposition leaders are referring to the joint suicide of Nandyal’s Abdul Salaam’s family and other incidents as examples of violations of human rights.
AP Opposition Leader, AP Council Chairman, Opposition Leader in Council and Assembly Speaker were ex officio members on the high level committee that selected the SHRC Chairman and members.

Frustrated Jagan filing silly cases: Lokesh


MLC Nara Lokesh has launched a scathing attack saying that the Jaganmohan Reddy Government has stooped to the lowest level of filing an SC, ST atrocities case against former Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu. This was out of sheer frustration over deadlock in the Capital City shifting. Jagan Reddy’s silly cases were just laughable and they would not be able to do any damage to the TDP chief.

Lokesh said that the CM might come out with any number of devious plans to kill Amaravati. However, the pious Capital would save and preserve itself on the strength of justice and ethical values. The courts have clearly said many times that there was no ‘insider trading’ in the Amaravati lands issue. They tried very hard for over 21 months and finally failed to find evidence to book Naidu in the Capital lands cases. Now, they lowered themselves to the cheap level of threatening a former CM with SC, ST atrocities case.

Mr. Lokesh slammed CM Jagan for sticking to his ‘adamant’ policies only to make the people believe in his illogical and meaningless ideas. Jagan Reddy has not learnt any lessons though the courts have passed strictures against his Government in the cases pertaining to the lands in Amaravati. Finally, the YCP Government got an atrocities case filed against the TDP chief based on a complaint given by a fake Reddy.

Naidu in trouble: AP CID slaps notices in Amaravathi land scam

The YSRCP government in Andhra Pradesh led by Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy is tightening noose around the TDP chief and former Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh N Chandrababu Naidu in Amaravathi land scam.

The Andhra Pradesh CID officials have slapped notices on Naidu to appear before CID on March 23 for inquiry  in connection with his alleged involvement in Amaravathi land scam when he was CM between 2014 and 2019.

CID sleuths went to Naidu’s resident in Jubilee Hills, Hyderabad today (Tuesday) and served notices.

The notices were served under 41 CrPC, according to AP CID chief Sunil Kumar.

The development assumed significance in the backdrop of YSRCP making a clean sweep in AP municipal polls and TDP suffered worst ever defeat in elections two days ago.

The CID registered FIR against Naidu for various procedural irregularities with regard to decisions taken on land pooling and allotments for the Amaravathi capital city project.

One of the major charges against Naidu pertains to the alienation of ‘assigned lands’ which form part of the 30,000 acres pooled for Amaravathi capital.

Amaravati is the right of Andhra people: Chandrababu Naidu


Former Andhra Pradesh chief minister N. Chandrababu Naidu on Sunday said that Amaravati is the right of Andhra people and called upon all to fight for it.

The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) president participated in a road show as part of the party’s campaign in Vijayawada Municipal Corporation elections.

Naidu said at least one person from every house should come forward to fight for continuing Amaravati as the state capital.

The leader of opposition said people of Vijayawada should move ahead with a clear plan and fight for Amaravati. He said the fight to save Amaravati as the only state capital is a people’s fight.

“Amaravati is not for me. It’s for the people,” said Naidu, who recalled that farmers gave their land for building the state capital.

Naidu urged people to elect TDP candidate as Vijayawada mayor. He called for putting an end to what he called the tyranny of the ruling YSR congress Party (YSRCP).

A total of 347 candidates are in the fray for the elections to Vijayawada Municipal Corporation scheduled to be held on March 10. The number of municipal wards has gone up from 59 to 64.

The YSRCP has fielded candidates in all the wards while TDP, which has an alliance with CPI, is contesting 57 seats. The CPI has fielded candidates in six wards.

The BJP fielded candidates in 22 wards, while the Jana Sena Party candidates are contesting in 41 wards.

The Congress fielded candidates in 34 wards, CPI-M in 22 wards and BSP is contesting in two wards.

Meanwhile, Vijayawada Police Commissioner B. Srinivasulu said that police are making fool-proof arrangements for a smooth conduct of the elections scheduled to be held on March 10.

He said that the department is deploying about 3,000 police personnel for the peaceful conduct of elections in Vijayawada. The commissioner said that 1,870 rowdy-sheeters were bound over.

Naidu-Lokesh betrayers of Vizag, says Vijay Sai


TDP Chief Chandrababu Naidu and Nara Lokesh are making greater efforts to retain their party hold on Visakhapatnam in the municipal elections. Whereas, Jaganmohan Reddy and his party leaders are very serious about capturing the port city to establish their firm hold there. As expected, the ruling YCP leaders are making their attacks on the TDP solely focused on the issue of making Vizag the Executive Capital of the State.

YCP MP Vijay Sai Reddy took up the lead in launching the attack on Naidu and Lokesh. He asked how Chandrababu and Lokesh could ask for votes in Vizag when they were opposing the Capital status for the port city.

Vijay Sai has gone a step ahead and called Chandrababu’s as an all ‘beverse’ and cheaters and dacoits party. There were many land grabs during the Chandrababu regime. Naidu and his son Lokesh were indeed the betrayers of Vizag and North Andhra region.

Vijay Sai Reddy told the Vizag people that the port city would definitely become the Executive Capital and nobody would be able to stop this.

Andhra cops threaten to drag Naidu to court for ‘unfounded’ comments


Andhra Pradesh Police Officers’ Association (APPOA) representatives on Friday threatened to drag former Chief Minister and Telugu Desam Party (TDP) Supremo N. Chandrababu Naidu to court if he doesn’t stop making ‘unfounded’ statements against the department as well as its Chief.

“If you do not stop making these unfounded statements, we will take you to court under the relevant rules,” threatened APPOA representatives.

Representing thousands of policemen, the police reps have condemned Naidu’s allegations levelled against the Director General of Police (DGP) Gautam Sawang.

The police body questioned Naidu if he was making such remarks in the light of the state panchayat elections results and told him that they could understand why.

The policemen alleged that there was nothing new in Naidu’s opposition to the police force.

“You cannot demoralize police and the DGP with your threats laced with casteism and regionalism,” the policemen said.

The APPOA representatives asked Naidu if the police department and the DGP were responsible for TDP’s losses in the recent rural local body polls.

Saying the TDP supremo’s statements reflect his personality, the policemen highlighted that they could comprehend why he is making allegations against Sawang laced with casteism and regionalism despite 40 years of political experience and 14 years as Chief Minister.

Standing behind the seniormost Indian Police Service (IPS) officer of the state, the policemen said the DGP has been serving the state and the country for 35 years and called it a heinous development to ascribe caste, religion and regional motives.

“Didn’t you remember region and caste when the DGP handled key responsibilities during your government,” the police body asked the former Chief Minister.

Sawang worked as Vijayawada Police Commissioner during the TDP dispensation under Naidu.

The policemen warned Naidu that his statements violate the law and reminded him that he was not above the law.

This open letter to Naidu from junior police officers assumes significance as it is not the first one and was in response to Naidu’s speech in Kurnool on Thursday.

Naidu had alleged that the Andhra police are ‘shameless’ and are hounding the TDP which is known for its integrity and observed that they (police) are also from the state.

“They (police) are also from this state. Your children also have to stay here, do remember that. They have to live here. All have to live and die here,” said Naidu while addressing a crowd from an open top vehicle in the run-up to the urban local body polls in Rayalaseema town.

Naidu went on to claim that the state’s future is allegedly being pushed into darkness and what could he say if the police cooperate with people responsible for it along with criminals.

“I am raising my folded hands with Namaste (respect), please do not do such wrongful deeds. Your DGP will leave in a few days. He will leave for Hyderabad or to his village in the north-east but you and I will be here. Your children and our children will live here. A situation is arising in which the state may become an orphan, I request you all to be careful,” said Naidu.

Naidu started high drama at Renigunta airport: Sajjala


Airports have also become venues for the YCP leaders to do a lot of politicking around them. Prior to the 2019 election, the murder attempt on Jagan Reddy at Vizag airport was sensation all over the country at that time. Thereafter, Naidu was detained at Vizag airport. It was at the airport itself that Jagan Reddy met the workers unions of LG Polymers after the infamous gas leak.

Now, the Chandrababu Naidu detainment at Renigunta airport became a sensation in the midst of the municipal elections. CM Jagan’s advisor Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy has called it nothing but an airport drama by the TDP chief. Sajjala asserted that there was no need for the YCP to threaten the TDP candidates.

Sajjala said that their party candidates would win the elections on the strength of the welfare programmes being implemented by the Jaganmohan Reddy regime. It was Chandrababu Naidu who was misleading the public for the sake of defaming the YCP rule. In fact, it was the TDP which was not able to find even candidates to contest the election on its behalf.

Sajjala has asked whether Naidu does not know that the election code was in progress in the Chittoor district. While the elections were going on smoothly, Naidu was saying that the attacks were being committed.
The YCP Advisor advised the people to demand an explanation from the TDP chief.
