Jagan, Naidu Blame Each Other For Bhuma’s Death
Nandyala: MLA Bhuma Nagi Reddy’s sudden death has led to a war of words between Opposition leader Jagan and Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu. Bhuma was elected on YSR ticket from Nandyala constituency in 2014. He switched over to the ruling party a year ago. Reddy died of massive cardiac arrest on Sunday. AP Assembly was adjourned for a day after paying homage to the leader.
It was Chandrababu Naidu, who invited Bhuma into TDP with a promise to make him a minister within three days. Its almost a year now and the promise was not fulfilled. The non-implementation of the promise lead to Bhuma’s depression, Jagan alleged.
Jagan said that his party will field a candidate as the seat belongs to YSRCP technically. TDP should not field a candidate, Jagan added.
Within 24 hours after death of Bhuma, Naidu called Bhuma’s daughter Akhil Priya to Assembly which shows lack of sensitivity on the part of Babu, Jagan said.
He said the main reason for boycotting Assembly was to maintain dignity of demised leader. If he speaks in the Assembly during condolence motion on facts and what transpired between Naidu and Bhuma it would have amounted to defaming the departed leader, Jagan felt.
CM Chandrababu has hit back strongly at Jagan saying that it was Jagan who met Governor for opposing the move to induct Bhuma Nagi Reddy into the cabinet. Jagan was responsible for pushing Bhuma into depression, alleged Naidu. jagan has no human values, Naidu said.
Naidu said he did not force Akhila Priya to attend the House and she felt its her duty to be present in the House when a condolence motion on her father was being discussed, he added.
