The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) will continue its fight until GO No. 1 is repealed and the party will teach a lesson to the YSRCP, declared the former chief minister and party national president, Nara Chandrababu Naidu.
The three TDP MLC-elected candidates met Chandrababu Naidu at the party headquarters. Congratulating the three MLCs-elect, Vepada Chiranjeevi Rao, Kancherla Srikath, and Ramgopal Reddy on their success, Chandrabbau said that Ramgopal Reddy successfully resisted the rowdyism in Pulivendula. This is a success for Ramgopal Reddy and the defeat for the Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy,” the TDP supremo commented.
Expressing concern that Jagan is making even the All India Service officers partners in crime, the former chief minister felt that attempts had been made to force the returning officer (RO) and the district superintendent of police (SP) to commit some blunders. “How can a recount of votes be demanded after the result is announced,” he asked.
Is Jagan not a psycho who ignored Election Commission orders and put pressure on the RO and the SP, Chandrababu asked?The TDP leaders and activists fought a relentless battle for almost 72 hours, and the candidate who won the poll was forcibly arrested and shifted to the police station, the TDP supremo said.
“I am deeply hurt at the attack on our MLA Bala Veeranjaneya Swamy on the floor of the House. I am now saying that those who are involved in this attack will never be allowed to enter the House again,” Chandrababu declared. The MLC election result is only a small wind, but a tsunami is on its way, and Mr. Jagan and his YSRCP will be swept away, he remarked.
No leader is eternal but the Assembly is, Chandrababu said, adding that Monday’s incident will remain a dark day in history. The people are fed up with these psychos and thus gave this verdict in the council polls, he said, and he made it clear that the TDP leaders will not run away from such empty threats. “I have seen several crises, and we know how to respond,” Chandrababu said, asking why the Speaker has not responded to this incident.
Making it clear that the TDP will continue its war against GO No. 1 until it is rescinded, he stated that the attack on the MLA too will be taken to the public. Profusely thanking the TDP activists who fought for the success of the party candidates in the council election, he said that the party always strives for the welfare of the people.
Chandrababu Naidu also thanked the Progressive Democratic Front (PDF), the CPI, the CPM, and the Jana Sena, and wanted the party activists to take this victory as an inspiration.
