TDP leaders meet EC, hit out at Jagan over attack on Naidu

Following the attack on the convoy of N Chandrababu Naidu, his party colleagues demanded that Election Commission disqualify former Congress MP, YS Jaganmohan Reddy, from contesting Lok Sabha by-election.

Hyderabad: Following the attack on the convoy of Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu, his party colleagues demanded that Election Commission
disqualify former Congress MP, YS Jaganmohan Reddy, from
contesting Lok Sabha by-election from Kadapa, if he continued
with the "acts of goondaism."

Senior TDP legislators Dadi Veerabhadra Rao, M
Narasimhulu and others met State Chief Electoral Officer,
Bhanwarlal, here this evening and submitted a petition against
Jagan following attack on Naidu`s road show at Lingala on Saturday.

They sought a tough action from the EC.
In a separate statement, TDP politburo member Yanamala
Ramakrishnudu, Parliamentary Party leader Nama Nageswara Rao
and former Home Minister T Devender Goud condemned the attack
on Chandrababu Naidu`s convoy, saying that Jagan was resorting
to such acts only out of the fear of losing the by-election.

"Jagan is trying to spread his family`s violent culture
across the state and grab power. He has no regard for
democracy," they said.
