Telugu Desam Party senior leader K Yerran Naidu on Saturday took serious note of former agriculture minister YS Vivekananda Reddy comments suspecting TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu’s hand behind the CBI raids on YSR Congress party president Jaganmohan Reddy.
Talking to media persons at NTR Trust Bhavan, Yerran Naidu alleged that Vivekananda Reddy was trying to drag the names of TDP chief and other leaders only for political gains. He said the CBI’s case against Kadapa MP Jagan Mohan Reddy or the inclusion of YSR’s name in the FIR was done on the directions of Andhra Pradesh High Court. Therefore, it was not proper to drag the name of TDP leaders in a subjudise matter.
Yerran Naidu said that Vivekananda was leveling such serious charges with an aim to join the YSR Congress party as he was neglected in the Congress after his defeat in the Pulivendula by-elections against YSR Congress party candidate Y S Vijayamma. Alleging that YSR looted the state since 2004, he said that TDP launched national movement to highlight his corrupt practices.
Another TDP MLC Rajendra Prasad said that Vivekananda Reddy made such allegations only to get Congress high command’s attention and was eyeing on MLC seat which fell vacant due to the resignation of former chief minister K Rosaiah.
