0

Telugu Desam Party (TDP) general secretary, Nara Lokesh, on Thursday called upon the people to re-elect the cycle to power and defeat this psycho Government to free the people from this unnecessary taxes and other problems.

Lokesh who was on his “Badude Badudu’ programme at Nutakki village in Mangalagiri Assembly segment, explained to the people the unnecessary taxes being imposed on them and the steep hike in prices of all commodities. Lokesh personally met almost all the villagers to have the first hand information on the problems they are facing.

He assured the villagers that the TDP will always stand by them and will fight for their welfare. Lokesh demanded that the ruling party MLAs give in detail the works they have taken up in their respective Assembly segments as the State government is claiming that thousands of crores are being spent for the development of each segment.

Coming down heavily on local MLA, Ramakrishna Reddy, the TDP national general secretary said that this ‘small psycho’ who could not build even a single house in his Assembly constituency, is resorting to pulling down thousands of houses in the segment.

The MLAs who could not get even a single rupee for the welfare of the people of their constituencies are imposing taxes worth hundreds of crores, he added. He promised the villagers that the TDP will certainly come to their rescue and try to resolve their problems.

0

Telugu Desam Party (TDP) general secretary, Nara Lokesh, on Thursday said that the Jagan Mohan Reddy government is subjecting the common man to various kinds of harassment.

Taking part in the ‘Badude Badudu’ programme at Prakash Nagar in Tadepalle, Lokesh said that the people are suffering a lot due to various kinds of taxes being imposed on them. “Why is the drinking water being supplied at midnight,” he asked.

Lokesh visited the houses in Prakash Nagar and also the family members of those TDP activists who died in the recent past. He consoled the family members of the TDP activists and said that the party will stand by them. Lokesh also visited those TDP activists who are suffering due to various diseases and wished that they should recover fast.

Lokesh said that the local MLA promised pattas to those living in the hilly terrains soon after coming to power but till now no such action has been initiated, he said. The locals made several complaints to the officials with regard to the drainage, drinking water and the damaged roads but no action has been taken yet, the TDP general secretary said.

The common man is unable to have two square meals a day due to the huge amount of taxes being imposed on all the commodities, Lokesh observed. The prices of the essential commodities are skyrocketing and Chief Minister, Jagan Mohan Reddy, who promised total prohibition after coming to power is now encouraging liquor sales, he observed.

The local MLA is not taking any steps to resolve the problems but resorting to demolition of houses, Lokesh maintained. The TDP general secretary promised to come to the rescue of the locals once the TDP comes back to power.

Lokesh calls for united fight by BCs for empowerment

0

TDP general secretary, Nara Lokesh, on Thursday called upon all the sections in the Backward Classes (BCs) to wage a united fight for their empowerment.

Addressing the conveners of the BC Empowerment Committee at the party headquarters in Mangalagiri, Lokesh said that injustice is being done to the BCs in the YSRCP rule and they are facing various kinds of harassment in the State. To fight against this tyrannical attitude, all the communities in the BCs should join hands and wage a united fight, he told the Empowerment Committee conveners.

Lokesh wanted the panel conveners to ensure that all the sections in the Backward Classes communities be given proper importance. “The community-based problems should be studied and proper solutions should be found to resolve them,” he told the meeting.

The credit of empowering the BCs goes entirely to the late N T Rama Rao, who was inspired by B R Ambedkar and the Mahatma Jyotiba Phule, Lokesh said, adding that it was the TDP that created reservations for BCs in the local bodies elections. Chandrababu Naidu, who succeeded the late NTR, religiously followed him and initiated several measures for the uplift of the BCs, the TDP general secretary maintained.

Chief Minister, Jagan Mohan Reddy, who termed the BCs and back bones later backstabbed them and conspired to remove them from the positions that they were holding earlier, Lokesh said. False cases were foisted against the leaders from the community like Atchen Naidu, Yanamala Ramakrishnudu and Beeda Ravichandra Yadav, he stated.

Addressing the meeting, Atchen Naidu said that several programmes were implemented during the TDP regime for the uplift of the BCs both economically and politically. Besides extending loans for self-employment, 34 per cent seats were allotted for BCs in the local bodies polls to see to it that they grow politically, Atchen Naidu said.

Though during the TDP regime one residential school for each Assembly segment was set up, after Jagan Mohan Reddy came to power he destroyed the entire system and even discontinued the Adarana scheme besides slashing the percentage in reservations for them, the TDP state unit president stated. The corporation system has totally collapsed in the YSRCP rule, he said and stated that it is only the TDP that extended maximum assistance for BCs.

Lokesh vows to restore NTR name for health university

0

Former minister and TDP general secretary Nara Lokesh on Wednesday criticised chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy for renaming the Dr NTR University of Health Sciences. He said that the TDP would restore the name once it came to power.

The TDP general secretary wondered what made Jagan Mohan Reddy to drop the name of late N T Rama Rao from the university. He said that the university was founded by NTR in 1986 and it was the first health university in the country.

He alleged that Jagan Mohan Reddy was doing psycho acts in the state as he could not develop the state. He asked the chief minister to develop the state adding infrastructure to all the sectors.

He took strong exception to Jagan Mohan Reddy claiming that he has respect for late NTR and wondered what made him remove the name of the leader whom he respected. He sought to advise the chief minister to create a new institution and name it after his father, if he had love for the institution and his father as well.

Lokesh demanded that the state government withdraw its decision and repeal the bill that was passed in the Assembly renaming the university.

Earlier in the day, the TDP MLAs and the MLCs had held protests both in the Assembly and Council opposing the renaming of the university and removal of the name of NTR. The TDP leaders also held a protest at the NTR University of Health Sciences in Vijayawada against the change of name.

TDP MLAs suspended from AP Assembly for fourth consecutive day

0

Speaker Thammineni Sitaram suspended the TDP MLAs from the Assembly for the rest of the day on the fourth consecutive day on Tuesday. The members were sent out as they were holding protests at the Speaker’s podium asking for short discussion on welfare programmes.

Before the session started, the TDP MLAs and the MLCs reached the Assembly in procession holding placards stating that the government had neglected the welfare of the people. The MLAs and the MLCs alleged that the government had diverted the welfare funds from the budget and was doing injustice to the people.

The TDP MLAs alleged that chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy had ignored the sub-plan funds for the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes. They also blamed the state government for withdrawing Anna Canteens which were opened by the government during the TDP regime.

The TDP MLAs issued notice to the speaker seeking short discussion on the welfare programmes. However, the speaker rejected the notice and took up the business.

The MLAs raising slogans against the government held a protest at the Speaker’s podium. They demanded that the chief minister resign from his post as he failed to implement the welfare schemes in the state and withdrew the Anna canteens.

The speaker made repeated requests to the TDP members to retire to their seats and allow the House to conduct its business. However, the TDP members continued their agitation forcing the speaker to suspend them.

Minister Adimulapu Suresh alleged that the TDP members were politicising every issue. He said that the TDP had opened a few Anna Canteens in October 2018, with an eye on elections. The canteens too were few and were now being used only for political benefit.

He sought to advise the TDP leaders to stop politicising everything and asserted that people were watching.

Police stations have become mom-in-law homes, Lokesh

0

Former minister and TDP leader, Nara Lokesh, had said that the police stations in Andhra Pradesh have become his mother-in-law’s homes for him. He said that he had never visited a police station in the past, but now was made to stay in the police stations and even visit jails.

Lokesh visited the family of Patibandla Narendranath, the TDP activist from Chinaravuru village of Tenali, who died recently. The former minister recalled his association with Narendranath after the 2019 general elections and said that the young leader had been very active in the party.

The TDP general secretary also promised to stand by the bereaved family in the days to come. He told the party rank and file from the Tenali Assembly constituency to be active and be helpful to those who have been working for the party.

He blamed the state government for destroying the Anna Canteens in the state. He said that chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy was not helping the poor and was not letting the TDP help the poor. He wondered why Jagan Reddy was destroying Anna Canteens which were serving the poor with a meal a day.

He also criticised the chief minister for unleashing reign of terror in the state to scare the TDP leaders and activists. He said the government was framing false cases against the TDP workers and the leaders and asserted that those cases and the police stations will not scare the TDP workers.

“I have never been to any police station in the past. But, after Jagan Reddy became the chief minister, I am made to be in the police stations and even jails,” Lokesh said. He further added that he had lost the fear of being arrested or jailed. All that I am doing is fighting against this corrupt government, he added.

Lokesh says Jagan made Nellore as crime capital

1

Former minister and TDP general secretary Nara Lokesh on Wednesday alleged that chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy had made Nellore as the crime capital of the state. He said that Jagan Reddy had proposed only three capitals, but had converted the peaceful Nellore town into the fourth capital.

Lokesh visited Kavali town in Nellore district and consoled the family members of a Dalit youth, Karunakar, who committed suicide recently alleging that the ruling YSR Congress leaders were harassing him.

Lokesh said that atrocities against the Dalits and women have increased in the last three years. Jagan Reddy had no love for the Dalits and women though he makes tall claims. He listed the number of atrocities committed against the Dalits and women in the state in the last three years.

The TDP general secretary accused local minister Kakani Govardhan Reddy as the perpetrator of the crime. He said that the minister was encouraging crime against the Dalits in the distrct and the suicide of Karunakar in Kavali was a clear witness.

Lokesh alleged that the YSR Congress leaders Kethireddy Jagadeeswar Reddy and Suresh Reddy have prevented Karunakar from fishing in the local tank. He said that Karunakar had taken the tank on lease for fishing but was prevented by the YSR Congress leaders, forcing him to commit suicide.

He alleged that both Jagadeeswar Reddy and Suresh Reddy were the associates of local MLA Ramireddy Pratap Kumar Reddy.

Lokesh demanded that the police book cases against these YSR Congress leaders and arrest them for abetting the suicide of Dalit youth Karunakar.

Lokesh also warned the state police against dancing to the tunes of the ruling YSR Congress leaders. He said that people would teach a fitting lesson to the YSR Congress in the next elections. Subsequently, the TDP would take the erring police officers to task in the next government, Lokesh said.

Naidu has foreseen this pathetic condition of AP much earlier, says Lokesh

1

Former minister and TDP national general secretary, Nara Lokesh, on Tuesday said that the TDP national president, Chandrababu Naidu, has foreseen this pathetic condition of the State before the last election itself if the YSRCP comes to power.

Lokesh, who is in Chittoor to visit those TDP activists who are in the district jail, spoke to media persons after having mulakat with them. He said that Chandrababu Naidu has foreseen the condition of the State if a factionist becomes the Chief Minister is coming into reality now.

“We are now witnessing the dangerous condition that the State is passing through,” the TDP general secretary said. The Chief Minister, Jagan Mohan Reddy’s, grandfather, Raja Reddy’ Constitution is in force in Andhra Pradesh but not the statute penned by Dr BR Ambedkar, Lokesh commented.

Several senior TDP leaders, including some former ministers, have been arrested in the past three years, he said and mentioned the names of J C Prabhakar Reddy, Narayana and Chintamaneni Prabhakar. False cases have been foisted against 5,000 TDP activists, he added.

“We are not scared of such false cases as fear is not in our dictionary. You can file any number of cases against us,” Lokesh maintained. He made an appeal to the State police to implement the Indian Penal Code (IPC) but did not resort to follow the Jagan Penal Code (JPC).

Because of some elements in the State police, the entire force is getting discredited, he commented. Stating that the TDP is soon coming back to power in the State, he warned such elements of serious action when the party is in place.

Lokesh said that after Jagan Mohan Reddy became the Chief Minister over 2,000 Anna Canteens, which were opened by the then TDP government to provide food to the needy, were shut down. How the people can expect Jagan Mohan Reddy, who does not take care of his own mother and sister, to provide food to them, he maintained.

Though the TDP has again thought of reopening these Anna Canteens, the ruling YSRCP is creating hurdles everywhere, the TDP general secretary said. Even at Mangalagiri too, he said when he restarted the Anna Canteen, the local police arrested 60 innocent persons, he added.

Even during YS Rajasekhar Reddy’s six-year rule Kuppam never witnessed such violent incidents, he said and demanded immediate measures to bring normalcy not only in Kuppam but also in the whole State.

Mangalagiri BC leader leaps from Lokesh lap, lands on Jagan lap

0

The BC leader from Mangalagiri Assembly constituency in Guntur district, Ganji Chiranjeevi, who left the opposition TDP two weeks ago, had finally landed on Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy’s lap on Monday. The BC leader joined the ruling YSR Congress at Jagan Mohan Reddy’s camp office.

Chiranjeevi was backed by sitting MLA Alla Ramakrishna Reddy, local MLC and former minister Murugudu Hanumantha Rao and Kurnool MP, Dr Sanjeev Kumar, when he met the chief minister and joined the YSR Congress.

Chiranjeevi contested from the Mangalagiri Assembly constituency in the 2014 general elections on TDP ticket and lost the seat to Alla Ramakrishna Reddy of the YSR Congress by the lowest margin of 12 votes. It was the lowest margin in the 2014 general election.

However, Chiranjeevi was denied the party ticket in the 2019 general elections as Lokesh laid his hands on this segment, hoping that it would be a cakewalk for him to beat the 12 votes. Though Chiranjeevi was upset, the TDP leadership had accommodated him in the subsequent municipal elections. He was finally made the chairman of the Mangalagiri Municipality.

Ahead of the 2024 general elections, with Lokesh deciding to contest again from Mangalagiri, Chiranjeevi left the party early this month. He then moved to the ruling party beginning his new innings.

The TDP had earlier lost its senior leader, Murugudu Hanumantha Rao, a two-time Congress MLA, who joined the TDP before the 2009 general elections as he was denied the party ticket. Hanumantha Rao won in 1989 and 2004 elections. He had left the TDP after the 2019 elections and subsequently became MLC.

Cops foil Lokesh tour in Palasa

1

The Srikakulam district police have prevented former minister and TDP general secretary Nara Lokesh from visiting his party leader local councillor Guriti Suryanarayana on Sunday. Lokesh had planned a big rally in the area to meet Suryanarayana.

The police stopped Lokesh convoy stating that there was a law and order problem and requested him to go back. As he refused, the police physically lifted him and put him in his vehicle even as Lokesh and the TDP leaders were protesting.

Later, Lokesh stopped at Visakhapantam and was addressing a press conference condemning the police highhandedness in Palasa. Here too, the police reached the press conference venue and asked Lokesh to cancel it as it was not scheduled and there was no prior permission. The police removed the microphones of the news TV channels and cleared the TDP leaders from the place.

The police served 151 notice and cleared him from the place. The TDP leaders blamed the police for preventing the farmer minister from visiting a place and addressing a press conference. Lokesh fired at the police stating that they have violated his right to visit any place in the state.

Later, the TDP leader alleged that chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy was losing his temper due to fear of losing the 2024 general elections. He alleged that Jagan Mohan Reddy was in desperation and hence using the police to stop the TDP and its leaders.

The TDP general secretary said that both the police and the ruling YSR Congress party were violating the peoples’ rights due to fear of losing the next round of elections.

Lokesh writes to Jagan to resolve problems of energy staff

0

TDP national general secretary, Nara Lokesh, on Thursday demanded that the State Government immediately initiate measures to resolve the problems being faced by energy assistants in the State.

In a letter to the Chief Minister, Jagan Mohan Reddy, the TDP general secretary said that the energy assistants have brought the problems that they are facing in discharging their duties to his notice. “After studying their problems in depth, I understand that the issues are genuine and thus I am writing to you to initiate immediate steps to resolve them,” Lokesh said in the letter.

Pointing out that the secretariat system has been brought into existence after Jagan Mohan Reddy came to power, the TDP general secretary said that the 1.34 lakh vacancies in various wings have been filled of whom 7,329 are appointed as energy assistants.

To interact with the consumers at the grassroots level and to solve any kind of problem that comes to their notice is their primary responsibility and ensure that there is no disruption in power supply.

Instead of making use of their services in the secretariats, they are being treated as slaves following which they are being subjected to terrible mental harassment, Lokesh said and pointed out that these employees are working with no leaves and no holidays even for festivals.

They have been drawing a meagre monthly salary of Rs 13,500 for discharging most dangerous duties. Though employees working in 19 of the 20 wings in the secretariat system are declared probationers, these energy assistants have been left out, Lokesh said and demanded that they be upgraded into probationers with immediate effect on a par with other secretariat employees.

Their life is under constant threat as they are not given proper training in dealing with the electric problems, he said, adding that even the benefits given to the electricity department staff members are not extended to the energy assistants as they are being treated as secretariat employees. Thus, their genuine demands to declare probation and to treat them on a par with the electricity department staff members be immediately conceded, Lokesh asked. They should immediately be given benefits like medical and cycle allowance besides granting them earned leave, the TDP general secretary said.

Gudivada Amarnath discounts Lokesh claims on investments

1

Minister for Industries, Gudivada Amarnath, on Wednesday took strong exception to TDP leader and former IT minister, Nara Lokesh’s claims on investments to the state during the TDP regime. He said that Lokesh was speaking lies as his father Chandrababu Naidu.

The Minister said that the people of the state were aware of the sort of people invited and the drama enacted at the three investment summits held in Visakhapatnam during the TDP regime. He said that fake people, fake companies and fake MoUs were signed during those three summits.

Amarnath said that with the media support, the TDP had made tall claims about the three investment summits, besides the visits to Davos and US by Chandrababu Naidu and his team. He also cited how a section of the media promoted even Nara Lokesh about inviting investments to the state from various countries during the TDP regime.

The Minister said that Japan’s Yokohama had come to the state in 2020 October with an offer to establish a tyres company at Visakhapatnam. The state government had given permission to the firm in 2020 December and the company and the first phase of the company was inaugurated in 15 months.

The Minister advised Lokesh to stop spreading false information as if people don’t know the facts. He said that people of the state have clear information about the investment summits conducted by the TDP government at Visakhapatnam and Vijayawada and the sort of MoUs that the government had signed those days.

“You can’t bluff people all the time,” the Minister said ridiculing Lokesh’s statements on industries and investments to the state during Jagan Mohan Reddy’s tenure.

Lokesh wants white paper on new investments

0

TDP general secretary and former minister Nara Lokesh asked chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy to release white paper on the new investments that have come to the state in the last three years.

Lokesh took strong exception to the tall claims of Jagan Mohan Reddy on new industries and new investments to the state. He said that Jagan Mohan Reddy was living on the investments mobilised by the TDP government and former chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu.

“Chandrababu Naidu had brought several industries to the state. Encouraged investments to the state, which Jagan Mohan Reddy is inaugurating,” Lokesh said. He also pooh-poohed the tall claims of Jagan Mohan Reddy on his claims about Davos meeting.

Lokesh said that industries were being closed, industrialists were running away and investments were not coming any nearer to the state. This was all because of the reverse policy of Jagan Mohan Reddy, the TDP general secretary said.

The TDP said that Chandrababu Naidu had worked hard 24×7 to mobilise investments and bring industrialists to the state during his tenure. “Chandrababu Naidu is known all over the world and the investors have confidence in his leadership,” Lokesh said and wanted to know if anyone around the world knew Jagan Mohan Reddy.

The TDP MLC alleged that the investors and the industrialists have to pay commissions to Jagan Mohan Reddy, Y S Bharathi and Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy, besides others. He said that the TDP is ready for any debate on the new investments to the state and the new industries that came in the last three years.

He dared Jagan Mohan Reddy and the state government to release white paper and come for debate.

People will decide whether nude video is real or fake, says Lokesh

0

TDP general secretary and former minister Nara Lokesh reacted sharply to Ananthapur SP Fakeerappa’s statement on MP Gorantla Madhav’s video call. He questioned the technical authority of the SP to declare the video is not original.

“Is the SP an expert in forensic science? Does he have any report from the forensic laboratory to justify his statement,” the former minister asked the MP, reiterating that the MP should be punished for his unethical act in the video call with a woman.

He further blamed the SP for trying to save Madhav, who was a former police officer. “As they have the same background, the SP must be trying to save his former colleague,” Lokesh said, ridiculing the SP’s statements.

He also found fault with government advisor Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy terming the nude video as a private affair of the MP. He wondered how the government advisor could make such an irresponsible statement as the person involved in the video call is a Member of Parliament.

Lokesh alleged that the YSR Congress leaders were crossing all limits in corruption, violence, violation of the rule of law and in targeting the opposition parties. He also alleged that the YSR Congress leaders were making insulting statements against women and asserted that the ruling party leaders have no respect for women.

Brushing aside the statements of the YSR Congress leaders and the MP himself, Lokesh said that people would decide whether the video was fake or original. He wanted the MP and the YSR Congress leaders to stand before the people for their verdict.

He also took strong exception to the YSR Congress leaders attributing the video to the TDP. He said that the TDP had no interest in finding the private lives of the ruling party leaders. On the contrary, the ruling party leaders were targeting the TDP leaders at all levels.

Jagan shivering over TDP social media, says Lokesh

0

TDP general secretary Nara Lokesh on Thursday asked why Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy was increasingly afraid and intolerant of social media and even youtube channels.

Nara Lokesh condemned the ‘unlawful’ arrest of TDP activist and youtube channel operator Venkatesh, a resident of Dharanikota village in Amaravati mandal in Guntur district. The cowardly CM was targetting social media out of frustration and to cover up his failures.

Lokesh said that Jagan Reddy seemed to be terrified of the media and also shivering at the thought of facing criticism on social media. Finally, Jagan Reddy was afraid of seeing the thumbnail of a youtube channel. How can this CM be called a ‘single simham’?

Lokesh said that some police were surpassing even the ruling YSRCP goondas in victimising the opposition party, social media activists and general public. They trespassed into the house of Venkatesh at night and arrested him without a valid reason.

Nara Lokesh said that the police broke the electric bulbs in the house before barging into it. Even their faces were clearly recorded in the videos. All those officers, who were violating the laws to earn Jagan’s patronage, would have to pay a heavy fine in future.

The TDP MLC advised the Chief Minister to boldly face criticism if he was really sure of people’s support for his false welfare programmes. Why was Jagan Reddy so impatient towards questioning voices when he was boasting of passing on huge welfare benefits directly to the people?

Meanwhile, Lokesh expressed shock over the death of five persons in the tragic mishap of high tension lines falling on auto rickshaw in Sri Satya Sai district. The accident took place at Chillakondayyapalli in Tadimarri mandal.

Lokesh blamed the negligence of the electricity department for the ghastly mishap. The Government should pay suitable compensation to the families of the deceased. Best medical treatment should be provided to those injured in the incident.

Lokesh slams YCP attack on Srikalahasti scribe

0

TDP general secretary and former minister Nara Lokesh on Tuesday condemned the latest attack made by a YSRCP leader on a journalist at Srikalahasti in Tirupati district.

Lokesh said that the ruling party goondas were crossing all limits and became extremely arrogant with power. After attacking the opposition, common public and officials, the YCP leaders were not targeting the media.

The former minister decried the attack made by YCP leader and Srikalahasti Temple Board member Jayashyam alias Bullet Jayashyam on journalist Eeswar. The attack took place at Srikalahasti Rajiv Nagar.

Lokesh said that the YCP leader had not only encroached on the journalist’s land but also used abusive language and physically attacked him. The ruling party leaders were going to any extreme to terrify all sections of society with the media being no exception.

Lokesh demanded the Government to take stringent action against Jayashyam for victimising the journalist. Also, the site encroached by the YCP leader should be handed over back to the media person.

He also accused the YSR Congress government of targeting the media in the state and alleged that Jagan Reddy was doing politics with the media.

Lokesh slams Jagan bid to sell ‘Capital smasanam’

TDP general secretary Nara Lokesh on Sunday accused Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy of hatching non-stop conspiracies to destroy the Amaravati Capital City.

Nara Lokesh asked how Jagan Reddy could put up Amaravati lands for sale at Rs. 10 Cr per acre after his Government called the Capital City region just a ‘smasanam’ (cremation ground).

Lokesh recalled how the ruling YSRCP Ministers and MLAs carried out a nefarious campaign against AP Capital. They said that Amaravati was prone to earthquakes and that the Capital city lands were vulnerable to floods.

Lokesh said that Jagan and his party leaders spread a vicious information propaganda against the mother-like Amaravati Capital. Now, the same YCP leaders were trying to sell Amaravati lands at a very high value. There seemed to be no end to the scheming and plotting of Jagan Reddy against the State and its Capital city.

The TDP for different reasons had invested mostly in Amaravati, both in terms of money and votes. It thought that Amaravati would help retain the power given the extensive publicity that was accorded to the unbuilt city.

Unfortunately, the TDP was defeated badly in Amaravati Capital city area, though it gained some victory in the Capital Region area. It had won two MP seats – Vijayawada and Guntur – which is Amaravati capital region area, but lost in Mangalagiri and Tadikonda, both are Amaravati capital city area.

Since the TDP had been keeping the Amaravati issue alive and had been fighting for it from 2019, it is to be seen if the city would resurrect the party to power in the next election.

Lokesh says YCP mafia looting soil, gravel, sand resources

0

TDP general secretary and former minister Nara Lokesh on Monday accused the ruling YSRCP elected representatives of looting soil, gravel, sand and all natural resources in the State.

Lokesh said the YSRCP soil and gravel mafia gangs were ruling the roost in Guntur district. They were getting all necessary help from the police and officials of the Government departments.

Lokesh condemned the latest arrest of TDP ex MLA Dhulipalla Narendra Kumar for just protesting against the soil mafia. Narendra has just been agitating against the soil mafia that has wiped out the entire water body in Anumarlapudi village in Guntur district.

Lokesh asserted that the arrest of Narendra once again held mirror to the anarchic rule that was being perpetrated on the people. In the past, an attack was made on Narendra when he went to visit the illegal soil digging site in Anumarlapudi. Today, the TDP leader was arrested without any valid reason.

Lokesh said that the YSRCP soil mafia was behind Narendra’s arrest. The TDP would stand by the side of Narendra in his relentless fight against the ruling party mafia gangs. Instead of arresting the thieves of soil, the police were arresting the protesting TDP leaders.

Lokesh blames YCP for ‘Ayyanna house wall demolition’

TDP general secretary Nara Lokesh on Sunday condemned the wall demolition by the municipal officials at the residence of TDP former Minister Ayyanna Patrudu in Narsipatnam.

Lokesh decried the Jagan Reddy Government’s revenge taking attitude against the opposition Telugu Desam Party leaders even after completing three years in power. ‘Pulivendula pilli’ (Jagan) seemed to be afraid of ‘Narsipatnam Puli’ (Ayyanna).

Lokesh said that the YCP rulers were resorting to intimidating attacks out of frustration over the latest massive success of Chandrababu Naidu’s public meetings in North Andhra. The Government was clearly terrified of the rising anti-establishment wave among all sections of the people.

Lokesh said he was feeling pity for Jagan Reddy for relying on ‘victimisation politics’ even after completing three years as the Chief Minister. Since the YCP Government had nothing to highlight before the public, they were perpetrating attacks and demolitions. These activities were highly condemnable in a civil society.

Lokesh condemned what he described as the high drama by the police in the name of giving notices to the Ayyanna family. Jagan Reddy seemed to have decided to depend on demolishing opposition leaders’ houses and arrests instead of correcting his mistakes.

Meanwhile, the TDP leaders accused the YSRCP regime of trying to suppress the voice of Ayyanna Patrudu by destroying his property. Was it a crime on the part of Ayyanna to speak on behalf of the people? Was it a crime to be born as BCs? They stopped the power supply and demolished the house in the early hours.

The TDP asked how the police could demolish the wall without giving notices. Would they come and demolish the wall in the name of serving notices? If the YCP leaders had any political scores, they should be settled in a straightforward manner. The vendetta politics have crushed all sections of people in the past three years.

The Telugu Desam leaders asserted that the Ayyanna family had constructed their houses after taking all permissions from the municipal and irrigation departments. There were proofs also. It was unfortunate that the police came inside the house of the former minister and created a ruckus.

The TDP condemned the attempts made by the police to arrest the ex-Minister’s son without a valid reason.
