Surveys predict RRR’s success in Narsapur


What is behind renegade YSRCP Raghuramakrishnam Raju’s confidence about winning from Narsapur Lok Sabha constituency if bypolls were held? Raghurama has repeatedly said that the winds were blowing against the YSRCP and that he would win if byelections were held today.

Highly placed sources say that Raghurama has got several surveys done to gauge the public mood in Naraspur. The surveys revealed that anti-incumbency was rising all across Andhra Pradesh and that the people were unhappy with the YSRCP government. He said that he would win from the constituency if a bypoll was held. He also said that he would resign from Lok Sabha and force elections on the constituency.

Political watchers say that Raghurama might contest as a BJP candidate with Jana Sena’s support. The TDP might not put up any candidate and ask its cadres to support RRR. There is also a possibility of his contesting as an independent with support from TDP, BJP and Jana Sena. Sources say that with his active connection and outreach in Narsapur, RRR could emerge as a key leader like Eatala Rajender, who managed to turn the tables on the ruling TRS.

Another prominent survey agency Atma Sakshi too had conducted a survey on Narsapur constituency. According to this survey, the YSRCP has 36.35 percent support in the constituency. The TDP has 36.80 per cent support. The survey was reportedly conducted between November and December 2021. In such a tight contest, the votes of Jana Sena and the TDP are likely to become crucial. This explains RRR’s confidence about defeating the YSRCP. We may have to wait to know when RRR takes the plunge and takes on the YSRCP .

YSRCP rebel MP seeks time to appear before CID in sedition case


Rebel MP of ruling YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) K. Raghu Rama Krishna Raju has sought four weeks’ time to appear before the Andhra Pradesh CID in a case of sedition booked against him last year.

The CID had last week served notice on Raju, directing him to appear before it on January 17.

The Narasapuram MP wrote to CID on Monday that he was indisposed and hence unable to appear before the investigating official.

Raju said he fell sick after reaching New Delhi and sought four weeks’ time to appear.

The MP is believed to be planning to approach the Supreme Court against the notice served on him.

A team of CID officers on January 12 had served the notice on Raju at his residence in Hyderabad. He was directed to appear in person before the investigation officer at CID regional office, Guntur.

The notice issued in the name of investigation officer says that MP’s presence is necessary for investigation and interrogation in a case registered against him at CID police station under Indian Penal Code sections 153 A, 505, 124-A read with 120-B.

The case was booked against Raju after he made some remarks against Chief Minister Y. S. Jagan Mohan Reddy and YSRCP government.

The police had arrested him from his residence in Hyderabad on May 14 and taken him to Guntur. The MP, who had undergone heart bypass surgery, alleged that he was tortured in state police custody.

The Supreme Court had later granted him bail, observing that the report of his medical examination indicated that he may possibly have been ill-treated in custody. The court had also asked him to cooperate with the investigation.

Raju slammed the state government for asking him to appear for questioning on Sankranti. He alleged that the case was booked against him out of personal vendetta.

The Lok Sabha member asked how a case of sedition can be booked against him for speaking out against the misrule and corruption of the government.

Raju has already announced that he will soon resign as MP as YSRCP has failed to get him disqualified. He has already announced that he will contest the by-election.

Will MP Raju appear before APCID after SC/ST Atrocity case?


The Andhra Pradesh police have booked a case under SC/ST Atrocities Prevention Act against YSRCP rebel MP Raghurama Krishna Raju.

Chintalapudi police filed a case against Raju on Friday night following a complaint lodged by one Raju, who complained that Raju abused APCID chief Sunil Kumar by naming his caste.

It may be recalled that APCID sleuths issued notices to Raju on Wednesday at his residence in Hyderabad asking him to appear before them for investigation in sedition case booked against him in May last year for making derogatory remarks on AP CM YS Jaganmohan Reddy and trying to create rift between castes with his comments in TV channel debates.

Raju was asked to appear for investigation in Guntur CID office on January 17. After receiving notices, Raju told that he will appear before CID as a law abiding citizen.

However, Raju on Friday wrote to PM Narendra Modi stating that YSRCP government is trying to kill him in CID custody and sought protection.

Against this backdrop, doubts surround over Raju appearing before CID on January 17. Speculations are rife that Raju left to Delhi on Friday night and he is not reachable later.

Will submit replies to court, YSRCP rebel MP on CBI charge sheet


A day after the CBI filed a charge sheet against rebel MP of YSR Congress party (YSRCP) K Raghu Rama Krishna Raju, his company Ind-Barath Power (Madras) Limited and 15 others in connection with Rs 947. 71 crore loan fraud, he said on Saturday that he would file his reply to the court on all issues raised in the charge sheet.

The MP believes that filing of the charge sheet at this stage augurs well as the matter was pending for the last four years.

Stating that entire transactions happened through banks, he said they were informed about the outstanding dues from some companies. He called it a civil dispute between the companies and said he would file a counter with clarity.

He remarked there was no need to give any importance to the comments of those who will soon be going to jail. He was apparently referring to the reaction of some YSRCP leaders.

The CBI on Friday filed a charge sheet against Raju, then chairman and managing director of Ind-Barath and others for allegedly causing loss of Rs 947.71 crore to a consortium of lenders.

Ind-Barath’s eight sister companies, then director Madhusudahan Reddy, Sekeo Power Limited, its managing director and two chartered accountants M. Srinivasulu Reddy and Pravin Kumar Jabad were also named in the charge sheet.

The Economic Offences Wing of the Delhi police had registered the case in October 2018 against five persons, including a Hyderabad-based company and its directors. The CBI took over the probe into the case in April 2019 on the orders of the central government.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) investigation revealed that Ind-Barath through its chairman and managing director Raju had allegedly availed Rs 947.71 crore from a consortium of lenders led by Power Finance Corporation Limited (PFC) and two other lenders, Rural Electrification Corporation Ltd (REC) and India Infrastructure Finance Company Limited (IIFCL), for setting up a thermal power plant at Tuticorin in Tamil Nadu.

However, the company neither completed the project nor complied with the terms and conditions of loan agreements. The accused, including the borrower company, allegedly transferred/diverted the disbursed project funds to create fixed deposits with Bank of India and UCO Bank and to pay advances to contractors.

Why YSRCP social media is ignoring RRR’s attacks?


Till a few months ago, the YSRCP leaders and the social media incharges went hammer and tongs against renegade party MP Raghuramakrishnam Raju aka RRR. They slammed him in the strongest of terms and pounced upon him whenever he made a comment against either YS Jagan or the party. Some of the attacks against RRR were way too below the belt.

But, suddenly, the YSRCP seems to be completely ignoring RRR and his comments. Even when he is making extremely pungent comments, the party’s social media seems to be ignoring them. The social media is not reacting to RRR’s attacks. They seem to be looking the other way.

YSRCP insiders say that the social media warriors of the party have now gone inactive. The reason is that despite their frontal attacks and quick responses, the social media teams feel that their contribution is not being recognised. Social media units, which mainly comprise youth, are disappointed that they are completely ignored.

As a result, these warriors have not been responding to RRR’s comments. Sources say that the YSRCP social media mechanism is quite inactive even when the party is under attack from the well-oiled social media accounts from the Telugu Desam Party. Sources also say that these youths are now slowly moving away from the YSRCP.

Renegade MP RRR to join the BJP?


Which way will renegade YSRCP MP from Narasapur, Kanumuri Raghuramakrishnam Raju, go in 2024 ? After annoying and angering the party leadership with his vituperative and incisive attacks, he cannot hope to get an MP ticket from the party. The only option left for him is to contest on some other party’s ticket.

The YSRCP is going hammer and tongs against him. RRR was even jailed on some charges or the other. Even after securing a bail, he had to remain hospitalized for sometime allegedly due to the ‘treatment’ he was given during his incarceration. The party has even lodged a complaint with the Speaker and sought RRR’s disqualification from the Lok Sabha. All these only mean that he would never get the YSRCP ticket.

There were rumours that the TDP would give him the party ticket in 2024. The YSRCP has even alleged that Chandrababu Naidu was behind RRR’s belligerence. In fact, RRR was recently present at the Tirupati rally of the Amaravati farmers and Chandrababu had warmly hugged him on the occasion. All these gave an impression that RRR would join the TDP.

But, now it is emerging that he is planning to join the BJP. Sources close to him say that he could get Raju community’s votes if he contests from Narasapur. There are fair chances of his winning if there is an alliance of Jana Sena, TDP and the BJP. RRR is said to be in touch with both the parties for the ticket.

Will contest against Jagan, says Raghurama


YSRCP rebel MP Raghurama Krishnam Raju declared that he will contest against party president YS Jaganmohan Reddy in the upcoming organisational elections of YSRCP.

Raghurama demanded YSRCP leadership to hold party’s organisational elections immediately saying that the previous organisational elections were held during YSRCP plenary in 2018.

He said as per party’s bylaws, the organisational elections have to held every two years but the party leadership is delaying citing Covid pandemic since 2020.

Raghurama questioned when YSRCP government can hold all elections in AP from gram panchayats to ZPTC, MPTC elections and municipal elections, in which entire AP voters participated during Covid pandemic, why it should be a problem to hold YSRCP organisational elections in which only YSRCP leaders participate.

Raghurama said he will contest for the post of YSRCP president in the upcoming elections adding that as per party’s bylaws anyone can contest for any post in the party.

Raghurama further stated that the party leadership did not dismiss him from YSRCP because he is a ‘disciplined soldier’ of the party.

He requested Lok Speaker Om Birla to reject the disqualification petition filed against him by YSRCP.

Jagan, Vijayasai bail cancellation: CBI Court dismisses RRR’s petitions


YSRCP chief and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and his close aide, YSRCP MP V Vijayasai Reddy got a reprieve in the CBI Court in Hyderabad on Wednesday (today).

The CBI Court dismissed the petitions filed by YSRCP rebel MP K Raghurama Krishnam Raju seeking cancellation of the bail granted to them in quid pro quo cases filed by CBI in 2012.

Raju filed the petition seeking cancellation of bail to Jagan in April this year and another petition seeking cancellation of bail to Vijaysai Reddy in July this year.

The arguments in these cases were completed in July. The CBI Court reserved its judgement to August 25.

But later it was again postponed to September 25.

Soon after the CBI court dismissed his petition today, Raju stated that he would challenge the judgement in the Telangana High Court soon and made it clear that he will move even Supreme Court to get justice.

The CBI court disagreed with the arguments of the rebel MP that Jagan and Vijayasai had violated the bail conditions by influencing the witnesses after they came to power in AP in May 2019 in connection with the quid pro quo case investigated by the CBI in 2012.

The court noted that there were no complaints from anyone against Jagan and Vijayasai influencing witnesses and impacting the CBI inquiry.

Raju contended in his petition that Jagan had tried to influence several officials, who were co-accused in his case, by posting them in key positions, such as chief secretary, principal secretary and advisor to the government.

Since all the witnesses cited by the prosecution in the quid pro quo case have now become subjects of Jagan, he would influence them not to depose against him before the CBI court, Raju argued.

But the CBI court felt that Raju’s contentions appeared to be purely hypothetical and were not substantiated by any material evidence to prove that Jagan and Vijayasai had influenced any witnesses.

RRR once again slams Jagan Reddy, says Govt is inc


Renegade YSRCP MP and YS Jagan’s bête noire Raghuramakrishnam Raju has once again slammed the YS Jagan government. He said the Jagan government should be ashamed of the broad-daylight murder of student Ramya Sri. Similarly, a couple, who ran a private school in Rayalseema region, had committed suicide due to the financial problems caused by Covid lockdown.

He said that these deaths show the dire situation that the state is in. He blamed Jagan Mohan Reddy’s model of governance for the poor law and order condition in the state. He quipped that the money that is being given for Amma Vodi (mother’s lap) scheme were finally finding their way into Nanna Buddi (dad’s liquor binge). He said that the private teachers were in dire straits as they are not getting their salaries. He also found fault with YS Jagan’s promotion of the government schools. What will happen to the private schools and what about all the investments that were made in the private schools, he asked.

In another sharp comment, Raghuramakrishnam Raju pointed out that Jagan’s rankings have fallen in terms of governance, policy and performance. The latest India Today report has ranked YS Jagan very low. His rating too have fallen, he pointed out. He said that the Jagan Government’s sand quarrying policy was faulty and said that every day 150 truckloads of sand is being smuggled into Telangana. While sand is being smuggled into Telangana, the local builders are finding it difficult to get sand for building houses. He said sand, which was once supplied for free, now costs almost Rs 25000 per truck. He also said that the state government is fast inching towards bankruptcy.

Raghuramakrishnam Raju is the most active parliamentarian in YSRCP


Most of the YSRCP MPs in Parliament are ending up as a disinterested lot in Lok Sabha. Their attendance is poor and their level of participation too is minimal. Interestingly, renegade YSRCP MP Raghuramakrishnam Raju is the best among the lot. In comparison, the TDP MPs are more active in the Lok Sabha.

According to the latest data released by PRS Legislative Research, an organisation that studies parliamentary and legislative affairs, Raghuramakrishnam Raju is the most active MP from AP. His attendance is a staggering 96 per cent. In fact, his performance as an MP is the best by any standards. He had taken party in as many as 50 debates and asked 145 questions.

The TDP has three MPs and the performance of all the three has been satisfactory. Guntur MP Galla Jayadev has 89 per cent attendance. He had taken part in 54 debates and asked 133 questions. Vijayawada MP Kesineni Nani too has 89 per cent attendance. Srikakulam MP K Rammohan Naidu is a regular fixture in the parliamentary debates and is known for his oratorical skills in both English and Hindi.

Among the ruling party MPs, YS Jagan’s cousin YS Avinash Reddy has a poor record. His attendance is a mere 32 per cent. He had participated in only one debate during the last two years. Bapalta MP Nandigam Suresh too has 45 per cent attendance. He participated in one debate, but did not ask even one question. The better performing MP from the YSRCP is Kakinada MP Vanga Geetha Viswanath. She has participated in 37 debates and asked 173 questions.

Petition filed seeking cancellation of bail to YSRCP MP Vijayasai


YSRCP rebel MP K.Raghurama Krishna Raju continues to give sleepless nights to YSRCP top brass.

After filing petition seeking cancellation of bai granted too YSRCP chief and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy, Raju filed a fresh petition in CBI court in Hyderabad today (Tuesday) seeking cancellation of bail granted to YSRCP Rajya Sabha member and Jagan’s close aide Vijayasai Reddy.

Raju said while Jagan is A1 (Accused No.1) in quid pro cases filed by CBI, Vijayasai Reddy is A2 (Accused No.2).

In his petition, Raju brought to the notice of the court that Vijaysai Reddy as MP is frequently meeting union ministers and officials in home and finance ministries and trying to create an impressing that he has ‘close links’ with home and finance ministers and officials and trying to ‘influence’ witnesses directly and indirectly with his acts and trying to create a sense of fear among witnesses.

Raju informed court that Vijayasai as MP has written a letter to union home minister Amit Shah seeking not to post an officer as CBI joint director, who was the prime investigation officer in Jagan’s illegal assets cases.

Raju said this amounts to involvement in the process of free and fair inquiry of the cases.

Meanwhile, the judgement on Jagan’s bail cancellation petition is expected to be delivered on August 25.

Will agitate on RRR disqualification, says Vijaya Sai, Netizens counter


YSRCP MP Vijaya sai Reddy tweeted recently that thier party is going to a agitate in the parliament if the Lok Sabhaspeaker further delays the decision of disqualifying Raghurama krishnam Raju. However, netizens countered his statement. Details as follows.

It is known news that Raghu Rama krishnam Raju has been criticizing YSRCP despite getting elected from the same party. Even though YSRCP government was able to snub other TDP leaders through arrests, Raghurama krishnam Raju proved his mettle and shocked YSRCP by getting bail from Supreme Court. With this , YSRCP leaders started focusing on getting Raghurama krishnam Raju disqualified from Lok Sabha. They have already given complaint to Lok Sabha speaker that Raghurama krishnam Raju has been taking part in anti- party activities and requested the speaker to disqualify him. However, Raghu Rama krishnam Raju seems to have taken all precautions and didn’t try anything that makes anti defection law applicable on him. So the speaker has been delaying the decision. Now Vijaya sai Reddy gave a sweet warning that if speaker doesn’t take decision, they will agitate in the parliament to pressurise the speaker.

However, netizens countered his statement and suggested Vijay sai Reddy to agitate on the issues that really matter to the people like- agitating for special status, assurances given during the bifurcation and the ongoing water issues instead of agitating on the issues like Raghu Rama krishnam Raju disqualification.

We need to wait and see whether Vijaya Sai will pay heed to such suggestions or will continue to work only for the benefit of their own party.

Raghurama makes YSRCP say ‘Ayyo Rama’


Till a few months ago, if a YSRCP MP met any union minister or Lok Sabha speaker, it was to raise the issues pertaining to state. But of late, the only reason why the YSRCP leaders are meeting the Central ministers, speaker or prime minister, there is only one reason. The reason is a white-clad tall man called Raghuramakrishnam Raju.

He has become a thorn in the flesh of the YSRCP, but YSRCP as of now doesn’t seem to know how to remove him. It has petitioned Speaker several times to take action against Raghuramakrishnam Raju for violating the provisions of the anti-defection law. MPs met Speaker Om Birla twice. Very recently, YSRCP parliamentary party leader Mithun Reddy met Om Birla to plead for the disqualification of Raghuramakrishnam Raju.

Despite YSRCP’s bonhomie with the BJP and despite Jagan’s friendship with Modi, the YSRCP is unable to get rid of Raju. It is now worried that Raju will rise issues in Parliament that will put the YSRCP in a spot. If a party member speaking against the party in Lok Sabha, it would be a huge embarrassment.

Even on Friday, YSRCP Rajya Sabha MP and party general secretary Vijaysai Reddy met Om Birla and petitioned about Raju’s ouster. However, from the body language of Vijaysai, it is clear that Om Birla’s response was lukewarm. Reddy even charged the speaker with a bias. This, analysts feel, will further drive a wedge between the speaker and the YSRCP. Things may only get more complicated, they argue. But as of now, the YSRCP is finding Raghuramakrishnam Raju a very tough nut to crack.

YSRCP MPs meet Birla, renew call to disqualify rebel Narasapuram legislator


Three Members of Parliament from the ruling Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) in Andhra Pradesh, V. Vijayasai Reddy, Mithun Reddy and Margani Bharat, met Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla on Thursday and renewed their call for disqualifying rebel MP Kanumuru Raghurama Krishna Raju.

“We submitted additional evidence to the Speaker with regard to our petition to disqualify Narasapuram MP Raghurama Krishna Raju,” said Rajya Sabha member and senior YSRCP leader V. Vijayasai Reddy.

Nearly a year has passed since the ruling party first asked Birla to disqualify Raju.

The Narasapuram MP continues to enjoy a rapport with most of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders in the national capital.

On Wednesday Raju met Birla in his office and called it a ‘courtesy call’. He also met Union Jal Shakti Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat.

“Met Union Jal Shakti Minister Shekhawat and discussed about the current situation in the state,” claimed Raju.

He also met Kishan Reddy after his swearing in as a Union Cabinet minister and ‘congratulated’ him.

Meanwhile, Vijayasai Reddy, Mithun Reddy and Bharat commemorated former chief minister Y. S. Rajasekhar Reddy’s 72nd birth anniversary with orphans at Bal Sahayog in Delhi.

Raju also paid tributes to Rajasekhar Reddy, father of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y. S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, against whom he is waging a war.

“On the occasion of the birth anniversary of a king-like person and a man with a heart, Rajasekhar Reddy, I pay my tributes,” said Raju.

Sporting a white shirt, a full moustache and neatly dyed wig, Raju featured in and disseminated two videos eulogizing the late and popular CM.

According to Raju, if anybody ‘commented’ on Rajasekhar Reddy, the latter would just laugh away those comments and never resort to any vengeance or aggressive retaliation.

Raju is talking from the position of a party member who made several ‘comments’ about his leader Jagan Mohan Reddy, including ‘bearing the fruits’ and reaping the ‘consequences’ for those comments lately.

Recently, a group of Dalits from Garagaparru village who claimed to have voted for the Narasapuram MP lodged a complaint with the police in Andhra, demanding his arrest for failing to fulfil the promises he made during elections. They complained that the MP is always absent.

For the past several months, Raju has been mostly dividing his time between Hyderabad and Delhi, ignoring his Narasapuram constituency where several villages continue to suffer from lack of even potable drinking water.

Jagan bail cancellation case: No more rejoinders, says CBI court!


The CBI Court in Hyderabad on Thursday dismissed the plea of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy’s lawyers to allow them to file rejoinders on the rejoinders filed by YSRCP rebel Raghurama Krishna Raju.

The CBI Court directed Jagan lawyers to directly begin their arguments on Raju’s rejoinders and gave them time till 2.30pm on Thursday to begin arguments.

Jagan’s lawyers sought time to file rejoinders but court refused and asked them to begin arguments straight away today.

Raju had earlier filed a case in CBI Court seeking cancelation of bail granted to Jagan in quid pro quo cases arguing that Jagan became CM now and is influencing witnesses using his power since several IAS officers working in AP government were named as accused in Jagan’s illegal assets cases.

However the CBI in its counter earlier left the decision of continuing or cancelling bail to Jagan to CBI Court without making its stand clear whether it wants bail to be cancelled or not.

The fate of Jagan’s bail will be known very soon.

This is the differencebetween Ramakrishna and Raghuramakrishna!!


Come to think of this. Both judge Ramakrishna and Narsapur MP Raghuramakrishnam Raju are highly critical of the YSRCP and YS Jagan. They were no-holds barred in slamming the powers that be. Both were charged with sedition and both faced arrest. Both were put behind the bars. Yet, Ramakrishna was arrested quickly while Raghuramakrishnam Raju was arrested only after due deliberations and proper planning. Not just that. RRR got out of the jail quite early, while Ramakrishna is still languishing in jail.

Wherein lay the difference? It is clear that both Ramakrishna and RRR have their secret backers who were feeding them with information inputs. But clever politician that Raghuramakrishnam Raju is, he must have consulted his own personal advisers, legal experts and must have kept the powers that be in the loop while planning his verbal attacks. Ramakrishna was quite indiscreet and careless in his attacks. Like a blue-blood politician, Raghurama ensured that a plan B was always in place.

It is this planning that helped Raghurama get a bail quickly and come out of the prison. He is now back to attacking both the YSRCP and YS Jagan. He had already written nine letters to highlight nine prominent failures of the YSRCP government. These letters are seen as a counter to the Nava Ratnas of YSRCP. On Friday, he has sent the ninth letter. Meanwhile Ramakrishna is still languishing in the prison. It is clear that he has prepared well enough when he took on the YSRCP.

This is in short is the difference between Ramakrishna and Raghuramakrishnam.

RRR custodial torture: LS Speaker directs union home secretary to submit report within 15 days!


Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla directed union home secretary to submit complete details within 15 days on the complaint filed by YSRCP rebel MP Raghurama Krishnam Raju on his ‘custodial torture’ by APCID in May.

RRR had issued a breach of privilege notices against Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy, AP DGP Gautam Sawang, APCID ADG, APCID SP.

The Lok Sabha Speaker’s Office finally responded on RRR notices on Friday and issued directions to union home secretary to submit a comprehensive report on custodial torture of RRR within 15 days.

The Speaker had also referred the alleged attack on the MP to the Lok Sabha Privileges Committee.

A few days ago, Raju’s wife and his son met the Speaker oand represented their grievances. They told him how the AP CID had flouted all rules and norms to file a false case and then to arrest him illegally. They also narrated how the MP was put to ‘custodial.

Raju also met the Speaker later and explained to him how third degree was invoked against him by APCID in the jail due to which he suffered severe injuries.

RRR taking shelter under Malla Reddy!


YSRCP rebel MP Raghurama Krishnam Raju is taking light of ‘disqualification petitions’ being filed by YSRCP with Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla seeking his disqualification from the Lok Sabha on charges of ‘anti party activities.

The YSRCP on Friday filed a fresh petition with Lok Sabha Speaker seeking Raju’s disqualification.

However, Raju made light of YSRCP’s complaint. Reacting on YSRCP’s petition on Saturday, Raju said that it is not that easy for YSRCP to disqualify him from Lok Sabha.

Political circles are surprised over Raju’s confidence on this issue.

Raju reportedly is taking shelter under failed disqualification attempt of Telangana minister Ch Malla Reddy.

Malla Reddy won from Malkajgiri Lok Sabha seat on TDP ticket in 2014. But he defected to TRS in 2015.

The TDP lodged several complaints with Speaker to disqualify him from Lok Sabha as per anti-defection law. But then Speaker ignored all these petitions though TDP was part on NDA government then and Speaker was from BJP.

Malla Reddy had officially joined TRS by meeting Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao at his camp office. Despite this, the Speaker did not disqualify him.

In the case of Raju, he did not defect to any party. He is still continuing in YSRCP. He is only raising his voice against YSRCP leadership and AP CM Jaganmohan Reddy.

Raju is confident that Speaker cannot disqualify him from Lok Sabha just for criticising Jagan and if he does, he can question why Malla Reddy was spared when he joined another party and plans to fight a legal battle against his disqualification.

Malla Reddy continued as TDP MP even after joining TRS till December 2018.

Malla Reddy resigned to Lok Sabha on his own in December 2018 after he got elected as TRS MLA from Malkajgiri in December 2018 Assembly polls.

Raju is now reportedly taking shelter under the failed attempt of Malla Reddy’s disqualification.

APCID counters RRR’s claims on ‘missing phone’!


YSRCP rebel MP Raghurama Krishanam Raju is engaged in a fierce battle with AP government and APCID ever since his arrest in sedition case on May 14. Though Raju is currently out on bail following Supreme Court directions, he is after AP government and AP CID by lodging complaints against them at all levels at national level by staying in Delhi after his discharge from Army Hospital, Secunderabad on May 26.

Raju lodged a complaint with Delhi police seeking action against APCID chief PV Sunil Kumar lleging that his mobile phone confiscated during his arrest from his Hyderabad residence on May 14 by the APCID was not listed in seizure records with the courts and it is being used to send offensive messages to others,

The APCID on Monday strongly objected to the charges made by RRR on mobile phone issue.

APCID claimed that when his Apple i phone 11 was seized on May 26, Raghurama Raju gave statement to CID that his phone number was 9000911111 but he complained to Delhi police that his number was 9000922222. It said the same statement was submitted to APCID court.

APCID said Raju’s statement was recorded in the presence of two witnesses and charged Raju of submitting fake complaint against APCID.

The CID stated that Raju’s statement will be submitted to Delhi police for further inquiry.

The CID wants to file a complaint against Raju for manipulating his phone number during CID investigation and in the complaint filed with Delhi police.

BJP MP decries ‘third degree’ on AP rebel Raju


The MPs of different parties are slowly reacting on YCP rebel MP Raghurama Raju’s letters. Even a BJP MP has expressed concern over the treatment meted out to Mr. Raju. BJP MP Sanjay Jaiswal, who is chairman of Parliamentary Standing Committee on Irrigation, has decried the ‘third degree’ methods allegedly used on Mr. Raju.

The BJP MP has said that the attack on Mr. Raju has deeply pained him. Mr. Jaiswal asserted that he would certainly raise the issue on the floor of the Parliament at the earliest opportunity. Towards this extent, the BJP MP has sent an email to Raghurama Raju and gave his assurance.

Orissa MP Chandrasekhar Sahoo has also expressed his solidarity to Mr. Raju. He said that an attack on a Parliamentarian would not be pardonable. He assured Mr. Raju that he would surely take objection to this incident in the Parliament.

Meanwhile, Raghurama has been silently continuing his counter attack on the AP CM. As ordered by the Supreme Court, Mr. Raju is not holding any press conferences on the CID case. However, he is writing letters to one and all. Now, Mr. Raju has sent letters to all the Chief Ministers in the country except. The MP narrated how he faced custodial torture in AP and requested the CMs to condemn the incident by passing resolutions in their respective assemblies.
