Telugu Desam Party (TDP) national general secretary Nara Lokesh took a jibe at Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy saying when his father YS Rajasekhar Reddy could not do anything to TDP supremo N Chandrababu Naidu, then what could the current chief minister do. Lokesh was referring to the alleged CID case on land grabbing from Dalits in Amaravati region, in which Naidu has been named as the main accused.
"Your father could not do it, after all who are you Jagan Mohan Reddy? It is a habit for your family to file false cases against Naidus and get criticised by the court," Lokesh said, late on Friday.
He shared an 8-minute-long video furnishing details of the alleged attempts made by the Reddy family to implicate Naidu by lodging multiple cases in the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) court and the Supreme Court.
The video claimed that all attempts to file alleged false cases against the TDP supremo had failed and stated that Naidu's honesty was like a 'burning ember'.
The video claims that despite repeatedly failing, the YSR family did not stop their attempts to implicate Naidu and tarnish the TDP supremo and former chief minister with alleged corruption charges.
They said cases have been filed against Naidu since 1999 by Rajasekhar Reddy, which were dismissed by the courts. Lokesh alleged that Jagan Mohan Reddy failed to question the Union government despite having 22 Members of Parliament (MPs) at his disposal.
"If YSRCP candidate wins in the Tirupati Parliamentary bye-poll, it will be another mute voice but if TDP candidate Panabaka Laskhmi wins, it will be a voice that will raise questions on behalf of the people," the TDP general secretary said.
The Scheduled Castes reserved high stakes seat of the Tirupati bye-polls is scheduled on April 17 and all eyes in the state are on it.
On Friday, YSRCP founder and Chief Minister, Reddy, held a review meeting on the issue and told his party leaders and ministers that their candidate M Gurumoorthy's trump should be so huge that the entire nation should take note of it.
