Amaravati: Former Chief Minister and Telugu Desam Party (TDP) national president N. Chandrababu Naidu has taken a proactive step by addressing letters to the President of India, Droupadi Murmu, and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, expressing deep concern over the reported surge in violence, disorder, and what he labels as a despotic rule prevailing in Andhra Pradesh.
In his detailed correspondence spanning nine pages, Naidu raised alarm over alleged human rights violations, erosion of constitutional institutions, alleged framing of false charges against opposition members, and purported attacks on central agencies. He asserted that he himself had become a target of these issues, asserting that he was subjected to orchestrated attacks backed by the government. In response, he fervently called for an immediate intervention from the central authorities to rectify the situation.
Highlighting his grievances, Naidu pointed to Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy’s governance approach since taking office in 2019, which he labeled as a “destructive rule.” He cited instances such as the demolition of the Praja Vedika structure and his contentious decisions leading to the upheaval in the proposed capital of Amaravati – a project initiated with the Prime Minister laying its foundation stone.
Naidu further spotlighted a recent episode in Chittoor district where he alleged an assassination attempt on his life, which was paradoxically followed by a case being filed against him on charges of attempt to murder. In his appeal for an impartial inquiry, Naidu demanded a CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) investigation into these incidents.
As a substantiation of his claims, Naidu enclosed a comprehensive 75-page document along with video clippings to corroborate his contentions. This strategic move not only underscores the seriousness with which he views the situation but also highlights his intention to mobilize support for his allegations.
Chandrababu Naidu’s outreach to the President and Prime Minister has set the stage for potential political deliberations and interventions, raising questions about the stability of the state’s governance and the role of central authorities in addressing these concerns.
