YSRCP rebel MP gets breather in MLAs’ poaching case

1

In a breather to Andhra Pradesh MP K. Raghurama Krishna Raju, the Special Investigation Team (SIT) probing MLAs’ poaching case has exempted him from appearance on Tuesday.

The rebel MP of YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) was informed by the SIT that he need not appear before the probe team on Tuesday.

Assistant Commissioner of Police Gangadhar sent a mail to the Lok Sabha member in this regard. Raju was told that he would be informed later as to when he should make himself available for questioning.

The SIT had last week issued the notice under section 41A of Criminal Procedure Code to Raju, a Lok Sabha member from the Narasapuram constituency. He was directed to appear before the SIT officials in Hyderabad on November 29.

The probe team had reportedly summoned him to question him about his links with the accused in the case.

Raju is the seventh person to be summoned by the SIT for questioning.

Lawyers Bhusarapu Srinivas and Pratap Goud and Chitralekha, wife of Nanda Kumar, one of the three accused in the case, have so far appeared before the SIT.

BJP general secretary B.L. Santosh, Bharath Dharma Jana Sena (BDJS) president Tushar Vellapally and a doctor from Kerala, Jaggu Swamy are yet to appear.

The SIT has issued lookout notices for Tushar, an ally of the BJP in Kerala and Jaggu Swamy as the probe team failed to locate their whereabouts.

The Telangana High Court last week stayed SIT notice to Santosh till December 5.

Ramachandra Bharati alias Satish Sharma, Simhayaji and Nanda Kumar were arrested by the Cyberabad police from a farmhouse at Moinabad near Hyderabad on the night of October 26 when they were allegedly trying to lure four MLAs of TRS with offers of huge money to make them defect to the BJP.

Cyberabad police conducted the raid on a tip-off by Pilot Rohit Reddy, one of the MLAs. He alleged that the accused offered Rs 100 crore to him and Rs 50 crore each to three others.

The accused were booked under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Prevention of Corruption Act.

Raghurama gets SITnotice in Telangana MLAs poaching case

1

YSR Congress rebel MP K Raghurama Krishnam Raju was given a notice by the Telangana Special Investigation Team (SIT) in the MLA’s poaching case. The SIT served the notice under section 41A of the Criminal Procedure Code asking him to come for questioning at its office in Banjara Hills on November 29.

The Telangana SIT is investigating the MLA’s poaching case in which three persons were already arrested. The SIT nabbed Ramachandra Bharati, Nanda Kumar and Simha Yaji on the day when they tried to bribe the TRS MLAs to defect to the BJP.

The SIT also issued notices to BJP national secretary B L Santosh, Bharatiya Dharma Sena chief Thushar, a doctor from Kerala, Dr Jaggu Swamy, advocate Srinivas in connection with the case.

As part of the investigation, the SIT is said to have collected information on the links of Raghurama Krishnam Raju in the episode. It is alleged that Raghurama Krishnam Raju had spoken to the TRS MLAs and the three main accused in the case before the actual poaching happened in Hyderabad.

Raghurama Krishnam Raju, who differed with the YSR Congress leadership in Andhra Pradesh had been trying to move closer to the BJP leadership in Delhi. Though he is knocking at the doors of the Jana Sena and the TDP, his eyes are on BJP to contest again from Narsapur Lok Sabha constituency in the 2024 general election.

In the process, it is alleged that the MP had tried to bring some MLAs from the TRS in Telangana and some MLAs from the ruling YSR Congress in Andhra Pradesh. He had allegedly made some telephone calls to the MLAs in both the Telugu states encouraging them to defect to the BJP ahead of the next general elections.

Raghurama Krishnam Raju is also facing cases of sedition in Andhra Pradesh and the CID had issued notices asking him to attend the questioning. The Hyderabad police have also registered cases against him for allegedly beating a CID constable near his house in Hyderabad.

Raghurama predicts early polls in AP

1

YSR Congress rebel MP, K Raghurama Krishnam Raju, on Friday, predicted early polls in Andhra Pradesh. He said that chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy was planning to go for early election on three capitals slogan.

The MP said that the state is likely to see the next round of election in April-May in 2023. He said that the chief minister had directed some of the ruling party MLAs to send their resignations on three capitals issue in support of decentralisation.

Once some MLAs quit the Assembly, the ruling party would start debate and campaign in the state on decentralisation and target the opposition TDP, he said. He further added that the ruling party had already started a campaign on decentralisation and the Saturday’s rally in Visakhapatnam is a clear indication to read Jagan Mohan Reddy’s mind.

The MP said that the chief minister would seek the resignations of the remaining MLAs and dissolve the Assembly so as to have the election in early 2023. The strategy of the chief minister is very clear, he said and added that the chief minister was planning to hit the sentiments of the people of Uttarandhra and Rayalaseema against Amaravati.

The next Assembly elections would be held with clashes among the people of the three regions, the MP alleged and blamed the chief minister for trying to use the sentiments for political gain. He also alleged that the YSR Congress and Jagan Mohan Reddy were planning to create law and order problems in the state to stop the Amaravati farmers from continuing their padayatra to Arasavalli in Srikakulam district.

The MP blamed the chief minister for closing the Godavari bridge at Rajamahendravaram for maintenance at a time when the Amaravati farmers were about to cross the river. He made an appeal to the Union government to direct the officials and the state government to open the bridge for the farmers to walk through.

Raghurama fails to appear before CID for questioning

0

YSR Congress rebel MP from Narasapur in West Godavari district, K Raghurama Krishnam Raju, on Monday, did not turn up for questioning by the CID sleuths at the DilKusha Guest House in Hyderabad.

The CID police have booked a case against the MP and his son for allegedly beating up a CID constable at their house in Hyderabad a couple of months ago. When the CID filed a case in the Gachibowli police station.

The MP filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking quash of the case. But the supreme court directed the CID to question the MP only in Hyderabad in the presence of his advocate and three other government officials.

Accordingly, the CID sleuths have issued notice to the MP asking him to come for the questioning on Monday. They have also brought a local deputy tahsildar and doctor, besides another person to the Dilkusha guest house.

However, the MP did not turn up and said that he had already sent a letter to the CID to send notices to the representatives of the two news channels to be present when they questioned him. As the CID did not bring the representatives of the new channels, he said he would not attend the questioning as per the guidelines of the supreme court.

The CID officials Sunil Nayak, SPs Jayasurya and Gopala Krishna, waited at the guest house for the MP. As the MP did not come, they went back stating that they would send the letter once again to the MP.

SC asks Raghuram’s son to include AP Govt in torture case

0

The Supreme Court on Wednesday asked Kanumuru Bharat to include Andhra Pradesh state government in the alleged torture of his son and the Narasapur MP, K Raghurama Krishnam Raju. The court took up hearing of the petition seeking CBI probe into the alleged torture of the MP by the CID police.

The MP’s son alleged that the AP CID sleuths have tortured his father during their custody at Mangalagiri. Bharat’s counsel told the court that the CID cops have tortured his father without even considering that he is a Member of Parliament.

He also alleged that the State government had influenced the government general hospital doctors who gave a false medical report on the injuries to Raghurama Krishnam Raju. It was only the military hospital at Secunderabad which had confirmed the injuries to the MP.

Raghurama Krishnam Raju has been avoiding visit to the State because of this case and requested the court to direct the CBI to probe into the torture.

The court asked Bharat’s counsel to include the state government as respondent so that the government would give its report on the charges. Though the counsel said that there was no need to ask the state government for its response, the court insisted on having the state government’s response before proceeding further.

The court felt that the response of the state government was required to ask for the CBI investigation. The court further posted the case for two weeks for next hearing.

Can Raghurama seek re-election to prove his survey?

1

YSR Congress rebel MP from Narasapur in West Godavari, K Raghurama Krishnam Raju, had released a political survey for Andhra Pradesh, predicting the victory of opposition TDP in the 2024 general elections. The MP, perhaps for the first time, had done the political octopus role, which was earlier done by Congress former MP, Lagadapati Rajagopal.

Raghurama Krishnam Raju, who has not been sailing with the party which gave him the Parliament ticket, is predicting the defeat of the YSR Congress and victory to the TDP. He claims that his men are at work across the state reading the pulse of the people.

The MP went on record that he had fans across all the 175 Assembly constituencies and 25 Parliament constituencies in the state, who are on the job. The two-fold job that he had given to his fans was to campaign against the YSR Congress government and to read the pulse of the people on a day-to-today basis.

Besides his fans, the MP had said that he had engaged a national level experienced organisation to conduct a random survey in the state to know the mood of the people. Accordingly, the results have shown some 90 plus seats to the TDP on its own. If the TDP and the Jana Sena have an alliance, the TDP alone would win 127 Assembly seats, while the Jana Sena would win close to 25 seats.

The ruling YSR Congress reacted sharply to this survey which was widely carried in the media, the other day. YSR Congress Parliamentary Party leader V Vijayasai Reddy reacted asking Raghurama Krishnam Raju to quit his Parliament seat and seek re-election to prove the survey.

Vijayasai Reddy took his twitter handle to throw an open challenge to Raghurama Krishnam Raju on the survey. He sought to advise the MP to stop speaking before the media in Delhi and face the election to read the pulse of the people and prove the correctness of his survey.

Will Raghurama Krishnam Raju accept the challenge or brush it aside and go ahead with his campaign against the YSR Congress government and Jagan Mohan Reddy!

Is Raghurama playing mind games?

0

YSR Congress rebel MP, K Raghurama Krishnam Raju, seems to have started playing mind games ahead of the 2024 general elections. He started moving away from YSR Congress and its chief Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy, a few months after his election to the Lok Sabha from Narasapur constituency in West Godavari district.

Ever since, he had been leading a campaign against the YSR Congress, Jagan Mohan Reddy and the State government headed by Jagan. He holds a daily briefing for the media either from Delhi or Hyderabad, where he attacks Jagan and the government in the most heckling form.

He had strongly lobbied to join the BJP, but things were not in his favour. He then tried to move close to the Jana Sena. Here too, things were not in his favour as it appears. Sources say Pawan Kalyan had said no to Raghurama’s entry as the latter had defied Jagan and there would be no guarantee that he would not turn against Jana Sena.

Now, the only option is TDP or end his political career. The latest survey released by him the other day gives TDP a clear edge in the 2024 general elections. According to his survey, the TDP would win 93 Assembly seats hands down. The number would go up to 127 if the TDP aligns with the Jana Sena.

He found a clear anti-incumbency in the state and voters were moving closer to the TDP, isolating the YSR Congress.

If his survey was genuine and reflects the views of the people, he would reap the benefit as well the TDP. But, if his survey was to please the TDP, both the party and himself would end up losing everything. Because, before the 2019 general elections, former MP and Andhra Octopus, Lagadapati Rajagopal, too had released a similar survey report. People knew where Lagadapati is now in Andhra Pradesh politics!

Supreme Court gives relief to Raghurama in Gachibowli case

0

The Supreme Court on Monday gave some relief to YSR Congress rebel MP, K Raghurama Krishnam Raju in a case filed against him in the Gachibowli police station in Hyderabad. The court directed the Gachibowli police not to proceed further in the case till further orders.

The Gachibowli police have registered a case against Raghurama Krishnam Raju, his son and two CRPF personnel on a complaint given by an AP CID constable. The constable told the police that the MP’s personnel have taken him to their home by force and beat him up when he was on vigil during the visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The constable said that as he belonged to the CID, he was posted in the area where Raghurama Krishnam Raju also lives. His job was to keep an eye on the movements of the people in the VIP areas, he told the police. However, some people belonging to the MP have taken him in their car by force and beat him up accusing him of spying on their house.

The constable also told the Gachibowli police that the MP’s personnel have taken his photo identification card by force. The CRPF had already suspended the two persons involved in this incident.

The MP said that the constable without disclosing his identity was moving near his house suspiciously and as an MP with Central security he had questioned him. His security personnel too have questioned the person as he did not reveal his identity. It was only after he was produced to the Gachibowli police, the constable had revealed his identity, the MP said.

In this background, the Supreme Court bench consisting of Justice Abdul Nazeer and Justice J K Maheswri directed the Gachibowli police not to act on the FIR filed against the MP and his son till further orders.

Supreme Court rejects Raghurama petition

0

The Supreme Court on Friday rejected the quash petition of Narasapuram MP K Raghurama Krishnam Raju requesting the court to quash the FIR filed against his son and his security personnel in an alleged case of beating an AP intelligence constable.

Earlier in the week, the Telagnana high court had dismissed Raghurama Krishnam Raju’s quash petition for withdrawal of a case filed in Gachibowli police station against his family members and security personnel in the same case.

The Supreme Court had asked the petitioner to wait for the completion of the FIR process and investigation.

It may be mentioned here that Raghurama Krishnam Raju’s son and security personnel have allegedly beaten up an intelligence wing constable near his house earlier in July. While the constable was on duty, the MP’s son and his security personnel took him home and beat him up, before informing the Gachibowli police.

The constable lodged a complaint against the MP’s son and the two CRPF personnel for thrashing him and taking away his identification card. The Central government had suspended the two CRPF personnel, while the Gachibowli police had booked a case.

The Supreme Court wanted the petitioner to allow the police to complete the formalities and approach the court at a later stage. The Telangana High Court too had asked the MP to wait for the police to complete the investigation.

The counsel for the AP Intelligence informed the high court that the CRPF personnel were placed under suspension and the case has strength to proceed further. The court accepted the argument and dismissed Raghurama Krishnam Raju’s petition.

Jagan tried to kill Raghuram Krishnam Raju, says Naidu

0

TDP chief and former chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu on Friday alleged that chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy had tried to assassinate Narsapuram MP K Raghurama Krishnam Raju. The TDP chief said that Jagan Mohan Reddy was taking political vengeance against his opponents and critics.

Chandrababu Naidu completed his two-day tour in the flood-hit areas along the Godavari river. He interacted with the people and promised to stand by them in their hour of crisis. He said that Jagan Mohan Reddy had no love for people and their lives.

He wondered how the chief minister was enjoying the air-conditioned rooms in Tadepalli when thousands of people were rendered homeless. He said that the chief minister was busy with vendetta politics.

He accused Jagan Mohan Reddy of filing false cases against his critics and sending them to jail. He alleged that Jagan Mohan Reddy had planned to eliminate Raghurama Krishnam Raju, who had been exposing the misdeeds of Jagan Mohan Reddy. He also said that the chief minister planned to kill the Narasapuram MP and shift the blame on others.

However, the MP acted wisely and escaped from the trap, the TDP chief said. He also said that Jagan Mohan Reddy had killed former minister Y S Vivekananda Reddy and shifted the blame on him. But the facts are slowly coming out, he added.

The TDP chief cautioned the state police against dancing to the tunes of Jagan Mohan Reddy and his YSR Congress Party leaders. He regretted that some police officials were working like the ruling party activists. He said he would not leave any official who misused the power during the last three years.

Chandrababu Naidu claimed that people are slowly realising the mistake of voting Jagan in the 2019 elections. The people are now getting ready to send him to Pulivendula and elect the TDP government in the 2024 elections.

He appealed to the people to wait for him to do justice for them as this government would not do anything good for the people.

HC refuses to quash CID case against Raghurama

0

The Telangana high court on Friday refused to quash the CBCID case filed against Narasapuram MP K Raghurama Krishnam Raju and his son. He filed a quash petition in the court pleading with the court to dismiss the case as it was baseless.

However, the CID counsel told the high court that the MP, his son, his PA and the CRPF security personnel have thrashed the AP Intelligence constable in Hyderabad. He further informed the court that the MPs security personnel have picked up the constable from the road which is away from his house and thrashed him.

The CRPF had already placed its ASI and constable under suspension in the same case. The CRPF had initiated an inquiry on the misbehaviour of the two personnel who were attached to the security wing of the MP.

The counsel further informed the court that the constable was on duty and had evidence to prove the misbehaviour of the MP and his son, besides the security personnel.

Accepting the CID counsel’s argument, the high court dismissed Raghurama Krishnam Raju’s petition stating that there is enough ground to file a case against the MP and his son, besides others.

It is now to be seen what the MP would do to escape from the CID case. He is already facing several cases in Andhra Pradesh including the CID cases.

The AP high court had earlier issued directions to the CID to question the MP in Hyderabad in the presence of his advocates.

Raghurama writes to KCR as CPRF suspends ASI, constable

0

Rebel MP K Raghurama Krishnam Raju wrote a letter to Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao alleging that Cyberabad Police Commissioner Stephen Ravindra colluded with AP police against him. This is with reference to the MP’s security personnel from the CRPF thrashing an AP Intelligence wing constable the other day.

The CRPF had already placed an ASI K Ganga Ram, who is currently in the security wing of the MP, under suspension for beating the constable at the behest of the MP’s family members and staff. However, the MP alleged that the AP government had conspired to eliminate him and had conducted recce at his residence in Hyderabad in the past too.

The other day, some people were found moving suspiciously and were questioned by his security personnel. While others ran away, the MPs security personnel caught one person by name Subhani Basha, who claimed himself as a constable in the AP Intelligence Wing. However, the MP said that the constable did not provide his identification forcing them to hand him over to the Gachibowli police station in Hyderabad along with a complaint.

In contrast to these facts, the city police commissioner was trying to dilute the case and had forced the police to book cases against the CRPF personnel, the MP said. He also tried to remind KCR that Stephen Ravindra was sought by AP police on deputation in the past and felt that the IPS officer was helping the AP government now.

The MP requested the chief minister to do justice to him and also take stringent action against those who were conducting recce at his residence posing threat to him and his family members.

Meanwhile, the AP government said that the Intelligence Wing had posted its constables at the Gachibowli ISB gate in the event of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the Telugu States. The AP government said that the MP’s men have kidnapped the constable, took away his Identification card and thrashed him. The constable too had filed a case against the MP’s family members and his security personnel.

Now Raghurama alleges a life threat from Jagan!

1

Rebel MP K Raghurama Krishnam Raju, who could not make it to the Bhimavaram meeting of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is now alleging life threat to him from chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy.

The MP had made an attempt to reach Bhimavaram on Sunday night by train first and then by road later. However, he came to know that his name did not figure in the protocol list either at the airport or on the dais. On learning about this, Raghurama Krishnam Raju went back to Hyderabad from where he went to Delhi.

The MP later on Monday alleged that his security personnel have found two unidentified persons near his Hyderabad house. They were claiming to be the police of the AP CBCID, the MP said.

He also alleged that the ruling YSR Congress activists have tried to eliminate him on the road as they followed him both in the train and his road journey.

The MP who had been severely criticising Jagan Mohan Reddy, particularly with reference to the Bhimavaram meeting, alleged that Jagan Mohan Reddy had turned out to be more dangerous than British officer Rutherford who killed Alluri Sitarama Raju.

The MP also expressed concern over the non-inclusion of his name in the protocol list. He said he had already written a letter to the Prime Minister’s Office and the Ministry of Culture and Tourism to strictly follow the protocol. In spite of his efforts, the Jagan Mohan Reddy government had removed his name from the list, he said.

Raghurama Krishnam Raju further said that he would take up the issue legally and protect his rights, besides his life.

Come what may, I will attend Bhimavaram meeting, says Raghurama

0

YSR Congress rebel MP K Raghurama Krishnam Raju on Saturday said that he would attend the public meeting in Bhimavaram on July 4 where Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to be present.

Raghurama Krishnam Raju secured Z Plus security for him for five days from July 2 to 7 to attend the meeting. He also secured clearance from the AP High Court directing the police not to arrest the MP on pending cases and strictly follow the procedure if new cases are filed.

He had booked a helicopter for him from Hyderabad to Bhimavaram. He is trying to get the ground clearance for his helicopter to land in Bhimavaram. If permission is not given, he is ready to move the high court again.

He is also ready with Plan B to land in Rajamahendravaram or Gannavaram airport and reach Bhimavaram by road. He is likely to carry an advocate and a couple of media persons besides his Z Plus security personnel drawn from the CRPF along with him.

He is also mobilising some people in and around Bhimavaram to protect him and had even asked the media there to keep a video camera on his movements and the movements of the police all through his travel and stay in Andhra Pradesh.

He is also equipped with secret cameras fixed to his security personnel, his advocate and his assistants all along his travel to record everything, including the movement of the people. One wonders why is he doing all this just to attend the public meeting!

The answer is a challenge that he threw to chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy to stop him from attending the meeting!

Raghurama gets relief to attend PM meet at Bhimavaram

1

YSR Congress rebel MP K Raghurama Krishnam Raju on Friday finally secured AP High Court protection for his visit to Bhimavaram in West Godavari district on July 4. He would be participating in the meeting to be addressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is scheduled to unveil the statue of revolutionary freedom fighter Alluri Sitarama Raju.

Raghurama Krishnam Raju had been trying to attend the meeting as the local MP and had secured clearance from the Prime Minister’s Office. He also tried to arrive here by a helicopter but was scared of AP police arresting him on the pending cases.

The MP is facing several cases for his anti-government comments in the media over the last two-and-a-half years. While there are official cases registered against him by the state police, some sections of the people have also filed cases against him for his alleged derogatory remarks against them.

The High Court too had given permission to the CID to question the MP in Hyderabad in some of these cases. However, fearing arrest by the police, the MP moved a lunch motion in the high court on Friday seeking direction to the police not to arrest him on July 4th and 5th as he had to attend the Prime Minister’s meeting.

The court had directed the state police not to book any cases against the MP on those two days. The court also directed the police to follow the procedure. The court asked the police to adhere to the rules and not to arrest him on those two days.

Raghurama Krishnam Raju had been speaking against the government for the past ten days expressing fears of his possible arrest. He also made several attempts to get security from the Central government, SPG and the Union Home Ministry besides the Prime Minister’s Office.

Now that the MP has the protection from the high court, it is to be seen how the AP police would make their next move.

Raghurama accuses CM Jagan of stalling his visit to Bhimavaram

1

Rebel MP K Raghurama Krishnam Raju accused chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy of stalling him from visiting his home constituency, Bhimavaram to participate Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s programme.

The Prime Minister is scheduled to unveil the statue of revolutionary freedom fighter Alluri Sitarama Raju in Bhimavaram on the day marking the 125th birth anniversary of the leader. The Prime Minister would also address a public meeting on the day.

Raghurama Krishnam Raju, who had deferred with the YSR Congress and had been criticising the party and the state government headed by Jagan Mohan Reddy for the past three years is now accusing the government of preventing him from attending the meeting.

He said he had had booked a helicopter from Hyderabad to reach Bhimavaram. However, he did not get ground clearance from the state government. He further said that he had also booked a first class coach of the railways to take him to Bhimavaram from Hyderabad, but he did not get approval from the railways yet.

He is now trying to get into the SPG helicopters that accompany the Prime Minister and was not sure whether he would get clearance or not. “As a local MP, I want to be there in the meeting when the Prime Minister visits my constituency,” he said.

However, he alleged that Jagan Mohan Reddy was stalling him in all the ways and accused the BJP government of helping Jagan because of the Presidential elections. When asked whether he had any plans to visit Bhimavaram by road, the rebel MP feared that he might be killed in a road accident as Jagan Mohan Reddy is not ready to accept him in the state.

AP CID to question Raghurama, gets clearance from HC

1

The AP CBCID police have got clearance from the High Court on Wednesday to question YSR Congress rebel MP from Narasapur, K Raghurama Krishnam Raju, in the case related to campaign against the state government.

The high court dismissed the quash petition filed by the MP who alleged that the CID had filed false cases against him. He also alleged that the CID sleuths have harassed him and caused physical injuries to him. He further said that the CID police have beaten him up and wanted relief from the case.

However, the court dismissed his petition and permitted the CID police to question him. The court also told the CID to question the MP at Hyderabad’s Dilkush guest house.

The case was related to the MP’s series of press meets where he accused the government of promoting Christians and accused chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy of heavy corruption and nepotism. The case was actually filed under sedition sections but they were withdrawn as the Supreme Court withdrew these sections.

Raghurama Krishnam Raju had been venting his anger against the state government and the chief minister for the past two-and-a-half years. He had pledged to defeat the party in the next elections and had filed several cases against the government and the chief minister.

He also intervened in the CBI cases against Jagan Mohan Reddy and wanted the court to speed up the trial, which further intensified his war against Jagan Mohan Reddy and his party. He is accused of acting at the behest of opposition leader N Chandrababu Naidu for his criticism against the government.

It is now to be seen when the CID would make its move to question the MP.

Raghurama wants to share dais with Jagan!

0

YSR Congress rebel MP from Narasapur Kanumuru Raghurama Krishnam Raju said that he is eagerly waiting to share the dais with chief minister Y S Jagna Mohan Reddy at Bhimavaram on July 4.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be attending the birth centenary celebrations of freedom fighter Alluri Sitarama Raju at Bhimavaram on July 4 for which Raghurama Krishnam Raju will also be attending.

Raghurama, as the local MP, would be presiding over the meeting for which he secured clearance directly from the office of the Prime Minister in Delhi.

Raghurama Krishnam Raju had deferred with the YSR Congress and there is not a single day left without the MP criticising Jagan Mohan Reddy and the YSR Congress government in the state.

As the Prime Minister would be attending the meeting, the chief minister would also join as part of the protocol.

In fact, the organisers have invited the chief minister too to attend the function along with the Prime Minister.

If the chief minister also attends the meeting, it would be compulsory for both the chief minister and the rebel MP to greet each other in the presence of the Prime Minister.

It is for these interesting moments, the MP said he wanted to seek the face of Jagan in a meeting he presided over.

However, he also expressed doubts over the conspiracy by Jagan and the state police to arrest him either before the meeting or after.

He cautioned the chief minister and the police against hatching any conspiracy to arrest him and said that it would become a major problem for the government.

It is to be seen if the chief minister attends the meeting or if the state police arrest the MP? What would happen when both of them come face to face on the dais!

YSR Congress rebel MP from Narsapur in West Godavari district, Kanumuru Raghurama Krishnam Raju may not attend Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s meeting at Bhimavaram scheduled for July 4. The Prime Minister is attending the meeting of commemoration of freedom fighter Alluri Sitarama Raju’s 125th birth anniversary celebrations.

As Bhimavaram is part of the Narasapur Lok Sabha constituency represented by him, the rebel MP had planned to visit the town and attend the meeting. He sent a letter to DGP K V Rajendranath Reddy seeking permission and assurance that he would not be arrested on his arrival. He also said if the state police fail to give him assurance, he would get the clearance from the Prime Minister’s office.

Accordingly, Raghurama Krishnam Raju secured clearance to attend the meeting. The Prime Minister’s office had given him permission to sit next to the Prime Minister on the dais on the day. Armed with the PMO clearance, Raghurama Krishnam Raju is planning to reach Bhimavaram town a little before the meeting.

However, he realised that AP police would arrest him if he entered the state. It came to his notice that a request was sent to the DGP about the proposed meeting of the Parliamentary Committee on Law, Justice and Public Grievances to be held at Visakhapatnam. On seeing the list of the MPs to attend the meeting as members of the committee, the DGP had reportedly advised the officials concerned to defer the meeting or else the police would arrest the MP.

Reacting to this, the rebel MP criticised the chief minister for denying him his right to visit his home state. “Is AP a state or the private estate of Jagan?” the MP asked, accusing the chief minister of misusing the police.

If the police have clear instructions to arrest the rebel MP on his arrival into the state, the MP may have to skip the Prime Minister’s tour to his home constituency too!

Shah gives permission to YSRC rebel MP to attend PM meet

1

Union Home Minister Amit Shah is learnt to have given permission to YSR Congress rebel MP from Narasapuram, K Raghurama Krishnam Raju to attend Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s programme to be held at Bhimavaram on July 4.

As Bhimavaram falls under his Parliamentary constituency, Raghurama Krishnam Raju wrote a letter to AP DGP seeking permission. He was afraid that the AP police would arrest him in one case or the other and sought assurance from the DGP. However, he said that he would approach the Prime Minister’s office or the Union Home Ministry for clearance.

Accordingly, the rebel MP secured clearance from both the Prime Minister’s Office and the Union Home Ministry to visit Bhimavaram and attend the Prime Minister’s meeting. As being the local MP, the Prime Minister’s Office had also cleared the MP’s proposal to preside over the function and sit next only to the Prime Minister on the dais.

It is to be seen whether he would come here along with the Prime Minister on the same day of the function or would arrive a day before. It is also to be seen if the state police would arrest him as he arrives or leave him this time as the Prime Minister’s programme is scheduled.

Raghurama krishnam Raju is facing a couple of cases booked by the local police in West Godavari district and the CID. In fact, he was arrested by the CID on charges of sedition for his speeches in the media.
