TDP Leaders Take A Dig At Jagan For His Remarks On Naidu
Nandyala: The one comment that YSR Congress Chief Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy has made against his rival and Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu is going viral in Andhra Pradesh politics. Jagan Mohan Reddy said that there would be nothing wrong if Chandrababu Naidu is shot dead on the street for his failures to fulfill his election promises, and the corruption that he is doing in the state for the last three years.
It’s not for the first time that Jagan Mohan Reddy’s comments against Chandrababu Naidu went viral in the state politics. Earlier, he had asked the people to beat Naidu with brooms and slippers for betraying farmers, women and weavers on the loan waiver promise. This too was taken up seriously by the TDP leaders in the state, while Naidu himself raised objection to the comment.
Now, this new comment, unlike the previous ones, has earned him cases in various police stations across the state.
A Telugu Yuvata leader Devineni Avinash filed a case against Jagan in Vijayawada police station. The young leader along with his supporters had set the effigy of Jagan on fire as a mark of protest against the remarks. In Guntur too, a youth leader Sai Ravipati had filed a case against Jagan for the remarks.
The ministers and senior leaders of the party have taken strong exception to the remarks and termed Jagan Mohan Reddy as a factionist and that deserved to be put in jail.
However, the YSR Congress leaders justify the remarks. They recall the statements of Chandrababu Naidu and the TDP MLAs like Bonda Umamaheswara Rao against Jagan Mohan Reddy and the YSR Congress legislators right on the floor of the Assembly.
The YSR Congress firebrand legislator R K Roja recalled the statement of Bonda Uma in the Assembly and dared the TDP leaders to justify those remarks. Uma said that he would bury the YSR Congress legislators in the Assembly and the remark is still there on the records of the Assembly.
“The member did not withdraw the remarks. Neither the Speaker expunged them from the records,” Roja said standing firmly behind her leader. “What right they have to find fault with our remarks.”
