Hyderabad, July 10 (INN): Condemning the reports that the main accused in the bank heist and murder belongs to the Party, YSR Congress has said that it is part of the conspiracy of vested interests and TDP to defame YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and his Party.
Addressing separate press conferences at Allagadda, Guntur and here on Wednesday, the party leaders said that a section of media and TDP are trying to connect a stray incident in East Godavari district with YSRCP as they are afraid of the growing popularity of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy.
Party Deputy Floor leader Sobha Nagi Reddy, spokesperson Ambati Rambabu and former MLA Jogi Ramesh condemned the reports that appeared in a section of press trying to link the offence with the Party and said this is a conspiracy to tarnish the image of the Party which is far ahead of others in public choice.
“The main accused Sridhar Reddy has nothing to do with the Party and the reports that he is financing padayatra are totally wrong and the willful campaign of vested interests,” they said.
Sridhar Reddy is nobody and even does not have party membership. If he has done something wrong, he is accountable to it and the Party cannot be blamed for it. The same is the case with the Narsipatnam women, who has been circulating fake currency notes.
Trying to blow up such incidents that are totally unconnected with our Party, only shows that they are scarred of our party while panchayat polls are on hand.
Congress and TDP leaders criticising YSRCP on the incident is ridiculous. The two parties have leaders who are charged with offences like rape, selling of diesel from official vehicles and the like, they said.
N Chandrababu Naidu was seen with inter-state criminal gang and he also has the history of patronising a conman like Kola Krishna Mohan and his own cabinet colleague Krishna Yadav has been involved in the fake stamp paper scam.
TDP has even accepted donation from Kola Krishna Mohan and offered him Machilipatnam seat. When the scam came out TDP has returned the donation taken by cheque and deposited in the court.
Whenever, by-elections are held, huge amounts are recovered from TDP leaders trying to transport the funds, they said.
TDP leaders have been blowing the issue out of proportion and trying to make an issue out of a non-issue. Thousands of people throng the padayatra as the popularity of Sharmila and the Party is on the rise and if some people try to take advantage of it, the Party has nothing to do with it, they said
“We are a Party that is on the rise, we do not encourage such people. Even if some of the people holding our Party flag commit such offences, we will reject them from the party,” they said.
In reality, the vested interests and our political adversaries are making every effort to link our Party with such scandals. We are alert and will thwart all their efforts. We do not encourage such elements and will screen them, they said.
