Amravati: It is well known that Narasapur YCP MP Raghurama krishnam Raju was arrested on Friday afternoon in Hyderabad by AP CID cops. The way CID officials handled the MP’s arrest attracted huge criticism in political circles. Visuals telecasted by electronic media clearly showed that MP was lifted and pushed into a car (INNOVA). Opposition parties came in support to the MP’s family members and condemned the arrest of Raghu Rama. Congress, TDP, CPI leaders said it is a clear cut vendetta by CM Jagan Mohan Reddy and the manner police arrested him was not acceptable. Is this the way to arrest a person who is a Member of Parliament? Is this the way to arrest a person who had heart surgery a few days ago? On what charges he was arrested, questioned opposition parties.
