Deputy Chief Minister KE Krishnamurthy on Sunday said that all the ministers in the State Cabinet would resign if the Leader of the Opposition, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy was able to prove the corruption charges levelled against the CM Chandrababu Naidu as per a report in The Hindu.
Krishnamurthy told the media in Kurnool that Jagan’s dream of becoming the CM would never come true as he is involved in several corruption cases.
Jagan Reddy released a book titled ‘Emperor of Corruption’ surrounded by co-accused on the dais, but the Goebbels propaganda against Naidu is what was troubling the people, he said.
He added that the sole agenda of the YSR Congress plenary was to ridicule the TDP and Naidu, while showering praise on Jagan Reddy.
Krishnamurthy alleged that Jagan Reddy was speaking about the Special Category Status while at the same time, pleading with the PM to acquit him from the CBI cases against him.
Refuting Jagan’s allegations, the Deputy CM said that there was complete transparency in the functioning of the Naidu government and that it was committed to people’s welfare.
With his promise of bringing back the YSR rule, Jagan Reddy wants to bring back the “misrule” which led to land grabbing and the looting of mineral wealth, Krishnamurthy said.
He further stated that only option before Jagan Reddy was to continue his ‘odarpu yatra’, as his plans to go on a padayatra would not be successful since he had to visit the court often.
Earlier on Saturday, Jagan had claimed that corruption under Naidu had gone up to the tune of Rs 3.75 lakh crore.
Claiming that Naidu was responsible for corruption to the tune of Rs 1 lakh crore in capital lands and an equal amount in the Visakhapatnam land scam, he said that along with the corruption in irrigation project contracts, GENCO, earth, sand and liquor auctions, the total touched the Rs 3.75-lakh crore.
