Jagan Sees Constitutional Breakdown In AP, Complaints To Governor
Amaravati: YSR Congress president Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy on Monday alleged that the State was witnessing the Constitutional breakdown with the government trying to physically eliminate the Opposition. Jagan Mohan Reddy met Governor E S L Narasimhan and submitted a memorandum giving the reasons for the Constitutional breakdown in the State and the situation warranting the imposition of the President Rule.
Jagan Mohan Reddy cited the Sunday’s daylight killing of his party leader from Kurnool, Ch Narayana Reddy by the rivals and requested the Governor to ask for CBI probe into the killings. He said that over 13 leaders of the YSR Congress were killed during the last three years of TDP rule in the State. He also cited the killing of 29 pilgrims during Godavari pushkarams and 26 labourers in Chittoor for which the TDP has to be held responsible.
On the contrary, he alleged that the TDP government was saving its own leaders who were involved in the physical assault of the officials. He said that TDP MP Kesineni Nani, MLA Bonda Uma had assaulted IAS officer Balasubrahmanyam’s gunman, while TDP MLA Chintamaneni Prabhakar had assaulted a woman Tahasildar. Another TDP MLA from Tanuku Radhakrishna had confined the police officials. However, in all these cases the government was protecting the TDP leaders victimizing the officials, he alleged.
He also recalled the statement of Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu during his first district Collectors meet in 2014 where Naidu had asked the Collectors to work with the TDP leaders and cadre. Taking all these factors into consideration and the brutal killing of the TDP leaders across the State, the YSR Congress president requested the Governor to seek CBI probe into the murders.
