YSR Congress Party president and Leader of Opposition in AP Assembly Y S Jaganmohan Reddy today alleged that Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu and Deputy Chief Minister K E Krishnamurthy were behind the murder of his party’s Pathikonda in-charge Cherukulapadu Narayana Reddy and his follower Sambasivudu.
YSRCP supremo called on Governor ESL Narasimhan at Raj Bhavan and complained that Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu and his deputy K E Krishnamurthy were behind murder politics by TDP men across the State.
Speaking to the media later, Jagan alleged that the TDP’s murder politics was creating terror among the Opposition cadres and leaders. “It was a conspiracy meticulously planned by Chandrababu Naidu and executed by KE Krishnamurthy,” he said, adding that his party would resist the murder of democracy. He also lashed out at Chandrababu Naidu saying he was luring MLAs from YSRCP and threatening the leaders as his party was fast losing ground in each district, Jagan said.
Later, Jagan left for Kurnool to participate in the funeral of Narayana Reddy and Sambasivudu. (NSS)
