Naidu cries foul :
TDP President Chandrababu Naidu said that it is political vendetta and it has nothing to do with Atchhan Naidu. This government is trying to create terror atmosphere in Srikakulam, Vizianagaram and vishakapatnam districts. In the last 40 years, Nimmada has never faced such type of tense situation. How many cases this Government will file against Atchhan Naidu? Naidu expressed his anguish. He demanded that Atchhan should be released immediately and unconditionally.
YCP MP Vijayasai Reddy will visit Nimmada in a few hours to interact with Appanna’s family members and give confidence. Police were deployed in huge number at Nimmada as a preventive measure.
