‘Supporters of YSR Congress Party threatening people with dire consequences'
HYDERABAD: The Congress Party has claimed that YSR Congress Party president Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy is ‘unfit' to contest the by-elections as he is keen on winning the elections using force.
Mr. Jaganmohan Reddy's claims that he will lay siege to the police station and the attacks that are taking place on leaders from other parties reflect the intentions of the YSR Congress Party to scare away voters from coming to polling booths and casting their votes.
“Mr. Reddy should not construe the attacks on leaders of other parties as heroic deeds. He is bringing bad reputation to Kadapa by indulging in such acts,” senior leader and MLC Paladugu Venkata Rao has said.
Addressing a press conference here along with another party MLC, R. Padmaraju, on Monday, he expressed concern over reports that Mr. Reddy's supporters were threatening people, women in particular, of dire consequences if they voted against the YSR Congress Party.
The government should take a serious note of the incidents and appoint a senior IPS officer to monitor bye-elections in Pulivendula Assembly and Kadapa Lok Sabha seats.
