0

Senior Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) leader and Rajya Sabha MP V. Vijayasai Reddy said on Thursday that municipal corporations and municipalities will have two deputy mayors and an equal number of vice chairmen as part of administrative reforms.

“As part of administrative reforms, a decision was made after the Governor’s approval of the ordinance for corporations and municipalities to have two deputy mayors and two vice-chairmen,” said Reddy.

He said this move is aimed at enabling greater representation of various castes and called it another step which validates Chief Minister Y. S. Jagan Mohan Reddy’s exemplary leadership.

Meanwhile, the MP met with the newly elected municipal councillors from Visakhapatnam corporation at this camp office.

Reflecting on the recent thumping triumph in the local bodies polls, Vijayasai Reddy said the southern state’s people once again reposed their faith in Jagan Mohan Reddy.

He said they did this because of the welfare and developmental programmes he has been implementing.

The YSRCP leader highlighted that the CM is ensuring that welfare activities are being extended to all communities.

0

Former minister and TDP MLA Ganta Srinivasa Rao has responded on Vijaya Sai comments that Ganta will soon join YSRCP. Details as below.

Ganta Srinivasa Rao was minister in Congress government as well as TDP governments. He is one of the very few leaders from TDP who won elections in 2019 despite anti wave on TDP. But since the last 2 years, there have been rumours about him deserting the party and joining YSRCP. Now, just ahead of municipal polls, Ganta Srinivasa Rao’s follower Kashi Vishwanath joined YSRCP today. Speaking on the occasion, YSRCP MP Vijayasaireddy said that many others are also joining YSRCP as they are impressed with Jagan’s rule. He also said Ganta Srinivasa Rao had sent some proposals which are pending approval from Jagan and once Jagan approves those proposals, Ganta also will join YSRCP.

Ganta condemned the comments of Vijayasai Reddy and challenged him to disclose the proposals he sent, if any. He made it clear that he is not changing the party and this is all mind game started by Vijaya Sai Reddy. He said, many of his followers joined other parties in last 2 years but he is not leaving TDP. Despite condemning these rumours several times, YSRCP is creating the same rumours again and again, he added.

We need to wait and see how Vijayasai responds on Ganta comments.

Court shock to Vijay Sai, Deekshitulu on pink diamond

0

The pink diamond issue is continuing to bother YCP MP Vijay Sai Reddy and the TTD former chief priest Ramana Deekshitulu even now. The court gave the latest order saying that the TTD cannot withdraw the case against them. The Tirupati 10th Additional District Court has heard the petitions of the Telangana Hindu Jana Sakti and some individual lawyers.

The petitioners argued that Vijay Sai Reddy and Ramana Deekshitulu should face the defamation case for over Rs. 100 Cr each. They told the court the TTD decision to withdraw the defamation suit was arbitrary and hurtful to the sentiments of the Hindu devotees all over the world.

Immediately after the YCP came to power, the Jagan Reddy Government withdrew the case that was filed against Vijay Sai and Deekshitulu. Under the previous Chandrababu Naidu regime, the case was filed when both these two made sensational comments on the disappearance of the pink diamond.

This time, the Tirupati court has also allowed the Telangana Hindu Jana Sakti and other lawyers to be parties in the defamation case along with the TTD.

Vijayasai attacks Naidu on Modi’s empty budget to AP

0

Undoubtedly, in making smart political moves, nobody can match YCP complicated MP Vijay Sai Reddy. His latest attack on the TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu is indeed out of the ordinary and unbelievable. Vijay Sai asked why Naidu was not opening his mouth against the Modi Government’s budget. He wondered why the TDP boss was not raising his voice against the lack of projects and funds in the Central Budget for AP.

Vijay Sai went on to make some arguments that were very curious. He said that as of now, the TDP was not part of the BJP-led alliance of the National Democratic Party (NDA) at the Centre. Vijay Sai was so joyfully saying that the BJP leaders themselves had clarified that there was no tie-up of any sort with the Telugu Desam Party (TDP).

In his non-stop attack, Vijay Sai analysed that Chandrababu Naidu was not in a position to clarify his own stand on such important issues like the Union Budget too. In fact, Naidu was shivering to even open his mouth on the Central Budget.

Quite strangely, even in respect of the YCP, only the MPs and Ministers and MLAs were voicing their resentment against the Central Budget but not the Chief Minister directly. On its part, the TDP MPs, MLAs and leaders criticised the budget but not Naidu. Obviously, the two main regional parties in AP were disadvantaged to speak up against the Modi budget.

Rs 35k crore for vaccines lone positive aspect of budget: YSRCP

0

Rajya Sabha MP and Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) senior leader V. Vijayasai Reddy said the budgetary allocation of Rs 35,000 crore for vaccine development and distribution is the lone positive aspect in the 2021 – 22 union budget on Monday.

“Only one positive aspect visible in the budget is Rs 35,000 crore for vaccine development and distribution by the Central government. Other than this there is no benefit for Andhra Pradesh,” said Reddy.

He said the state government demanded at least one of the proposed four regional centres of National Institute of Virology and new textile parks to be located in AP.

Likewise, Reddy said they asked the Central government for more vistadome bhogies as they are pending for Visakhapatnam and Araku.

“In the Central government spending for paddy procurement, Rs 4,282 crore is due for AP state civil supplies corporation. There was not mention of white revolution in AP at all,” said Reddy.

As Chief Minister Y. S. Jagan Mohan Reddy is planning to divide the 13 districts into 26, the MP demanded one organic farming university per district.

Reddy said the demand to raise standard deduction to Rs 1 lakh was not considered and termed the budget a survivalist budget.

“Amid Covid, we need a revivalist budget but not a survivalist budget,” the YSRPCP leader noted.

According to Reddy, the state is not satisfied with the Kharagpur – Vijayawada freight corridor and pointed out that only one fishing hub has been allocated for Visakhapatnam.

“One fishing hub is nothing compared to eight announced by our CM. Only very few senior citizen beneficiaries will be there in the state,” he observed on the benefits announced for people over 75 years of age.

As nearly 65 per cent of the people in the country depend on agriculture, Reddy said the Central government should give utmost importance and lamented that their request of raising Central government contribution for the PM Kisan scheme from Rs 6,000 to Rs 10,000 was not met.

Comparing AP’s Arogyasri to the Central government’s Ayushman Bharat, Reddy said the former covers more diseases than the latter.

Even as the southern state is planning to set up 13 new medical colleges, the Rajya Sabha MP highlighted that no medical project was allocated to the state.

Vijayasai slams Modi rule for step-motherly treatment

0

Finally, all the AP political parties except the BJP and Jana Sena were opposing the Union Budget presented in the Parliament today. YCP MP Vijay Sai Reddy deplored that the Centre gave step-motherly treatment to Andhra Pradesh. Only those states, which were going for the elections, were given priority. There was no mention of the AP projects or funds in this year’s Union Budget.

Vijay Sai further said that there was no ‘Aatmanirbhara Andhra Pradesh’ in the Modi regime’s ‘Aatmanirbhara Bharat’. No new railway projects were announced for the State. There was no mention of the Visakhapatnam and Vijayawada metro rail projects at all. What more, there was no clarity on the funds allocation for the national project of Polavaram.

On the other hand, the TDP blamed the CM and his MPs for the Centre’s raw deal in the budget to AP. It was now proved that the Chief Minister met the Prime Minister and the Union Ministers many times only to get personal benefits and favours. The YCP was giving support to the Modi regime in the Rajya Sabha but it could not make the Centre give funds and projects to the State.

The TDP also objected to the manner in which the Amaravati Capital City project was also neglected in this year’s budget.

Vijay Sai tells Modi: TDP plotted AP temple attacks

0

YCP complicated MP Vijay Sai Reddy represented his party at the All Party Meet held by Prime Minister Modi in Delhi ahead of the Parliament session. As expected, Vijay Sai used the occasion fully to pour out his party frustration on the Opposition TDP rather than seeking a better deal for AP.

Interestingly, the main issue raised by the YCP MP was about the temple attacks and the Ramatheertham incident that had brought national level focus on the AP law and order situation. Vijay Sai told the PM that the TDP leaders have plotted the temple desecrations. There was CCTV footage as evidence to show the TDP leaders’ involvement. Based on this, these TDP leaders should be given 20 years jail term each by bringing an amendment to IPC Section 295.
The other main demands included the shifting of the High Court of Andhra Pradesh to Kurnool and the permission for the Disha Act and also Special Category Status for AP.

In the past few months, scores of attacks took place on temples and chariots but no big breakthrough was achieved in the investigation. A handful of persons were arrested but there was no solid proof towards their guilt so far. The YCP blamed the TDP for these incidents but those remained political allegations without any proof or evidence.

Undoubtedly, Vijay Sai is making one more attempt to plead not guilty on behalf of his party in front of the BJP Delhi leaders with regard to the temple attacks.

Vijayasai to Ramesh: Take responsibility for Corona deaths

0

YCP firebrand MP Vijay Sai Reddy once again targetted State Election Commissioner Ramesh Kumar. The MP made it clear to Ramesh Kumar that he would have to take all and sole responsibility if people die of the virus infections during the panchayat elections. The YCP leaders have been launching all out attacks on the SEC since the Supreme Court green signal for the elections in AP.

Ramesh Kumar has also been defending himself by holding press conferences. He has gently refuted the allegations made by Minister Peddireddy Ramachandra Reddy and others on the issue of unanimous elections and censure orders against the All India Officers.

However, Ramesh has not responded to Vijay Sai’s comments as these seemed to be more personal nature. On behalf of the SEC, TDP daring leader Chintakayala Ayyannapatrudu issued the counter to the YCP MP. Ayyanna asked Vijay Sai to explain whether Chief Minister Jaganmohan Reddy would take responsibility for all the death of over 7,000 victims of Coronavirus in the State till now. Going by Vijay Sai’s own logic, all these should be seen as the government murders.

The YCP is demanding the SEC to give Rs. 50 lakh compensation if any Covid death happens. The TDP asked if the Government would give the same compensation to all the 7,000 families who lost their dear ones.

Naidu-Ramesh are villains: Vijayasai after SC poll order

0

All Opposition parties including the BJP and the Jana Sena are terming it as a defeat of the YCP unlawful activities after the Supreme Court gave a green signal for the panchayat elections. Even a pro-YCP BJP MP like GVL Narasimha Rao has raised his voice against the Jagan regime following the latest order in favour of the State Election Commission. The epic battle finally came to a close with victory smiling at SEC Ramesh Kumar.

However, YCP firebrand Vijaya Sai Reddy gave his response in his own unmatchable style. He asserted that with the latest Supreme Court order, the YCP has successfully won the hearts of the people. The entire State has seen how the Jagan Reddy Government made all out efforts for the health safety of the people.

Vijayasai asserted that their party has proved yet again that the people’s health was the top most priority for their Government. This was indisputable. Whereas, SEC Ramesh Kumar and former CM Chandrababu Naidu would go down as villains in the eyes of the public.

Undoubtedly, the legal fight between the Jagan regime and the SEC created sensation all over the country. Now, Vijayasai was giving a new interpretation and indicating clearly that the game was not over yet.

YCP frustrated: Vijay Sai utters unutterable words on Naidu

0

The game on the AP panchayat election turned uglier after SEC Ramesh Kumar issued the poll notification. From the Ministers to the Speaker to the employees’ leaders, everybody targetted the SEC and Chandrababu Naidu. But, MP Vijay Sai Reddy stood apart from all the rest with his unique style of using unparalleled abusive and offensive language.

Today, Vijay Sai increased his dose some more and uttered unutterable words against Naidu. He went to the extent of using ‘spitting’ and ‘disrobing’ in his rush to attract readers’ attention to his words. The MP said without hesitation that Naidu was still playing games even though the people had ‘disrobed’ his party naked in the last election.

Meanwhile, SEC Ramesh Kumar further irritated the ruling party by writing an open letter to the DGP. The SEC sought action against Government Employees Association leader Venkatarami Reddy for threatening to kill him. Venkatarami Reddy has threatened to cause life threat to those who signed the orders to conduct the polls.

The SEC had told the DGP to put a close surveillance on Venkatarami Reddy considering his threatening statements.

YSRCP accuses Chandrababu Naidu of trying to divide society

0

Senior Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) leader and Rajya Sabha member V. Vijayasai Reddy alleged on Friday that Telugu Desam Party (TDP) supremo Nara Chandrababu Naidu has no ‘honesty, shame or justice.’

“Babu is a person who sets aside honesty, shame and justice and calling for dharma parikrama yatra shows his low level. Without even the fear of people, he is resorting to bluffing,” alleged Reddy.

He claimed that Naidu is responsible for temple demolitions and is now preaching about faith.

According to the Rajya Sabha MP, Naidu’s mental state has become worrisome because his son Nara Lokesh hasn’t allegedly succeeded, including the anxiety of not being in a position in the future to retain the status of an opposition leader.

That’s why, Reddy said Naidu is resorting to accusations, forgetting culture and decency.

“Politically, Naidu is struggling on the last leg of his life. He is desiring to salvage his political life with religious divisions. That will never happen. Under the leadership of Chief Minister Y. S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, all the people are united. Nobody cares for allegations,” he asserted.

Meanwhile, Naidu criticised the state government that it just did an eyewash about the mysterious illness in West Godavari district for four days which captured the attention of the country.

“Later, they abandoned it. Now it spread to Denduluru mandalam’s Komirepalli village. Instead of concentrating on conspiratorial politics and destruction of institutions, rulers should focus on public health,” alleged Naidu.

He said Komirepalli villagers are saying that their drainage system is in a pathetic condition.

“Government is not in a position to give even safe drinking water. Government rule should transform people’s lives but YSRCP is ruling in such a way that people are thinking it is okay if they are alive,” claimed the former chief minister.

Why did Naidu block Bharat Ratna to NTR, asks YSRCP

0

Senior Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) leader and Rajya Sabha MP V. Vijayasai Reddy on Wednesday questioned why Telugu Desam Party (TDP) supremo Nara Chandrababu Naidu allegedly blocked a Bharat Ratna award to late Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao (NTR).

“During Vajpayee’s time, why did you block Bharat Ratna when they were ready to give,” posed Reddy.

He criticized that Naidu comes out during NTR’s death anniversary or other occasions and demands a Bharat Ratna for the late founder of the TDP.

“You say that you have influenced Central politics, then what did you do in those days? You say you made many people presidents and prime ministers,” demanded the Rajya Sabha MP.

Alluding to the TDP national president, Reddy alleged that the person who backstabbed and claimed the life of NTR now pretends to honour him with giant garlands.

The issue of the Bharat Ratna award to NTR, a long time demand of his fans and supporters, has come to the fore following Civil Supplies Minister Kodali Sri Venkateshwara Rao saying that Naidu will not let the honour come to the former chief minister.

Reddy accused Naidu of plundering public money and calling somebody else a thief.

“People who demolish temples say that desecrations have occurred at the top of their voice,” alleged the Parliamentarian.

he also accused former TDP irrigation minister Devineni Uma of sand corruption allegedly under his watch.

“Who inflated irrigation projects valuations by 100 per cent and plundered public money. Because investigations will start, you have started these dramas,” he asserted.

Reddy also attacked Naidu for ridiculing the governance decentralisation system of ward and village volunteers as people who carry gunny sacks and work for a pittance of Rs 5,000.

“You mocked if a job of Rs 5,000 is a job at all but today a volunteer from Srikakulam went all the way to Bengaluru to deliver an arogyasri card (government health scheme) to save a little girl suffering from cancer,” added the MP.

Yellow gang roaming AP to attack temples: Vijayasai

0

The AP Police have arrested 13 TDP leaders and 2 BJP leaders in cases of instigating religious violence. Hardly a day has passed since the DGP warned of serious action against statements of provocation. Now, YCP firebrand MP Vijay Sai Reddy has unleashed one more direct attack on the TDP.

The MP said that a yellow gang was going round the State indulging in attacks on the temples and idols. Their only task is to whip up religious feelings and create disturbances between castes. Indirectly referring to the TDP, the MP said that the yellow gang was hell bent on dividing the AP society along caste, religious and regional lines.

Vijaya Sai’s latest attack has got a greater dose of allegations against the rivals. He asked who was spearheading the attacks on temples starting from Ramathertham. In the past few days, the ruling YCP leaders and the AP Police have begun making direct allegations against the TDP. In the process, they were also making minor charges against the BJP. Maybe, this was to make their attack look like a secular attack on all the Opposition parties.

Whatever, the common man on the street right now in AP is wondering at what turn the ongoing temple politics would take in future. Seeing the YCP track record, there is no doubt that more difficult days are ahead for the rival parties leaders and activists.

Vijayasai: ‘Saindhava’ Naidu can’t spoil Jagan ‘Maha Yagna’

0

YCP firebrand MP VijayaSai Reddy is elated and overflowing with joy at the latest order of the High Court of Andhra Pradesh. He says that with this, it is evident that Chandrababu Naidu’s vicious plans would not work eventually in front of CM Jaganmohan Reddy’s benevolent rule.

Vijayasai says that Chandrababu is trying to play the role of a ‘Saindhava in Mahabharat’. But Naidu’s evil plans would not work in the Maha Yagna of Welfare being presided over the Jagan Reddy regime in the State. The High Court had realised the importance of public health and summarily suspended the election schedule.

The YCP MP further posed a series of questions to State Election Commissioner N. Ramesh Kumar. He asked whether Nimmagadda would go to the Supreme Court for seeking relief from the latest order of the High Court. Or, the SEC would go to the residence of Chandrababu Naidu for further advice on how to proceed ahead.

Whatever, the YCP cadres were all celebrating the victory in the High Court. On his part, the SEC has decided to approach the division bench of the High Court seeking dismissal of the single bench order.

It seems the fireworks between the SEC and the Jagan regime will continue till the last day of Nimmagadda’s service

Vijayasai’s total focus on Vizag lands trigger doubts

0

The YCP Government has been creating one controversy or another in order to take forward its agenda on its policies with respect to lands and house sites. In his latest comments, YCP firebrand MP Vijayasai Reddy is attacking the rivals on the issue of public lands and sites in Visakhapatnam. He is constantly saying that the TDP leaders have occupied many Government lands during their previous regime.

Vijayasai’s total focus has shifted to the Vizag lands. This is triggering doubts in political circles about what the Jagan Reddy regime is up to. Vijay Sai says that their Government will be acting like a custodian of the public property. This is why the encroached lands were seized from the GITAM University. This was the reason why the encroached and illegal structure at Sabbam Hari house was demolished.

Analysts say that the Jagan regime is slowly building up its pressure on the TDP and pushing its leaders to corner. All this is to carry forward its main agenda to shift Executive Capital offices from Amaravati to Vizag soon. Already, 20 months are over but CM Jagan could not achieve what he planned with regard to Capital shifting. Now, the question is whether the YCP can shift Capital amid continuing litigation in the courts.

Vijayasai posts and deletes comment on ‘Christmas teeka’

0

YCP firebrand MP VijayaSai Reddy triggered a fresh controversy on the start of Coronavirus vaccination in the State. He tweeted a comment that the ‘Corona teeka’ programme would be started from December 25. Counter comments started pouring in asking whether the Jagan Reddy regime was bent upon politicising even the Corona teeka programme by linking it with a festival day.

Only a few days ago, the State Government told the High Court of Andhra Pradesh that the vaccination would be taken up in January and February months. If the vaccination begins on December 25, most likely it would end before the end of January. Then, there would be no problem for conducting the local body elections in February. But, the Government told the High Court that the police and all departments would be busy with the virus vaccination in January and February. This was why the Government could not conduct the local polls in February as per the schedule of State Election Commissioner Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar.

Within hours of posting his comment, VijayaSai deleted his twitter post on the vaccinantion beginning from December 25. But the damage was already done. The TDP began asking the Chief Minister for his explanation on the vaccination day.

Naidu can no longer hide behind pro-TDP media: Vijay Sai

0

The Assembly session is over in Andhra Pradesh. The ruling YCP and the CM did not give any chance to Chandrababu Naidu in the House. The TDP staged protests, walkouts and held press conferences outside most of the time. Now, YCP firebrand MP Vijay Sai Reddy came as usual like the police officer who comes towards the end of the cinema and fires his pistol. Vijay Sai appeared after the end of session and fired his salvo at the TDP chief.
Vijay Sai cautioned that Naidu could no longer hide behind his party favourable media and that he would have to face genuine criticism from the people. All these days, Naidu spent his time in Zoom internet meetings without directly meeting the people. Similarly, Naidu also spent most of his time outside the Assembly during the session.
When Naidu was asking for mike in the House, the ruling YCP and the Speaker did not give much attention to him. When the TDP chief staged walkouts, the YCP accused him of running away from the debates in the House.
The recent session was indeed a big shock to many though it was a short one. Not a single day witnessed a cordial debate between the ruling and the opposition benches.

ABN RK unfit, Ramoji Rao unethical, Ramesh a politician: Vijayasai

0

Lot of public and media attention in Andhra Pradesh is now on the Polavaram project. The Government is forced to explain itself for alleged reduction in the dam height and in R&R package. Apparently embarrassed, Vijayasai targeted and attacked all the rival parties and media at one go.

The YCP MP clarified to them all the Polavaram works were going on at a faster pace. He said that a journalist should treat all politicians equal. That way, ABN Radhakrishna is unfit to be a journalist.

Vijayasai went on to say that Ramoji Rao was not ethical and he should try to follow some discipline. State Election Commissioner Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar is acting like a politician. Nimmagadda is behaving as an agent of Chandrababu Naidu. No doubt, Nimmagadda will become the TDP working president after his retirement.

Party will support Harivansh: Vijayasai

0

Yuvajana Sramika Congress Party (YSRCP) Rajya Sabha MP on Monday announced the party will support JD(U) MP Harivansh in the election for the post of deputy chairman of the House.

Harivansh had already filed his nomination as the ruling NDA candidate to the Rajya Sabha deputy chairman’s post and is likely to be elected since the BJP-led NDA tally stands at 116 in the 245-member House, which has an effective strength of 244.

The total strength of Rajya Sabha is 245 and the NDA candidate, Harivansh Singh, is expected to win without any hurdle as parties like TRS, YSR, AIADMK also are likely to support the NDA candidate. The JD(U) is pitted against RJD candidate Manoj Jha in the poll. The post of Deputy Chairman of the Upper House fell vacant after the term of Harivansh ended in April.

TRS will abstain from voting: Keshav Rao

While Yuvajana Sramika Congress Party (YSRCP) Rajya Sabha MP on Monday announced the party will support JD(U) MP Harivansh Narayan Singh in the election for the post of deputy chairman of the House, the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) stated that it will abstain from voting.

TRS MP K Keshava Rao said the party will abstain from voting during the Rajya Sabha deputy chairman election. Bihar Chief Minister and JD-U leader Nitish Kumar had recently telephoned TRS president and Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao and informed him that Harivansh will be contesting the election as the candidate of the Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA). He had urged the TRS chief to extend support to Harivansh.

Harivansh had already filed his nomination as the ruling NDA candidate to the Rajya Sabha deputy chairman’s post and is likely to be elected since the BJP-led NDA tally stands at 116 in the 245-member House, which has an effective strength of 244. The total strength of Rajya Sabha is 245 and the NDA candidate, Harivansh Singh, is expected to win without any hurdle as parties like TRS, YSR, AIADMK also are likely to support the NDA candidate.

Is Ramesh Babu hiding in your house: Vijayasai asks Naidu

0

Just days after recovering from Covid-19, YSRCP Congress MP Vijayasai Reddy is back at unleashing a war of words on Twitter.

On Monday, the Rajya Sabha MP took to his Twitter handle to take on TDP chief and former chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu.

Reacting to the Swarna Palace fire mishap that had left at least 10 Covid-19 patients dead, Vijayasai Reddy asked if Naidu has given shelter to Ramesh Hospital MD Pothineni Ramesh Babu at his residence in Hyderabad or if he is hiding in TDP general secretary Nara Lokesh house.

Further, Vijayasai Reddy asked the connection Naidu has with both Pothineni Ramesh Babu and state election commissioner Nimmagadda Ramesh Kumar. “Naidu must make it clear the connection he has with the two.Ramesh Kumars. You should come clean on this,” Vijayasai Reddy commented rather sarcastically.

On July 20, Vijaysai confirmed on Twitter that he had decided to quarantine himself for a week to 10 days.

YSRCP MP and close confident of AP Chief Minister, VijayaSai Reddy has placed himself under home quarantine,four days after he was tested for COVID. The parliamentarian took to a social networking site to disclose the news. “In view of the COVID situation I have decided to quarantine myself for a week to ten days as a mark of abundant caution, I will not be available on telephone except for emergency,” Vijayasai wrote in his Twitter account.

With complete recovery from Covid-19, Vijayasai is back with a bang unleashing a volley of questions and diatribe against Naidu.

Vijayasai Reddy’s comments come in the wake of search warrant issued against Ramesh Babu who had been absconding ever since the fire mishap incident in Swarna Palace which was taken on lease by the Ramesh Hospital, a designated Covid-19 hospital.

The Vijayawada police had announced a cash reward of Rs 1 lakh to anyone who would provide information about the people who are absconding in the Swarna Palace fire mishap that claimed the lives of 10 patients and caused injuries to 18 others.
