Srikakulam – Telugu Desam Party (TDP) national secretary Nara Lokesh made serious allegations against Andhra Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy during a public rally in Srikakulam. Lokesh accused Jagan Reddy of murdering his own uncle and questioned the safety of other family members
Addressing the gathering, Lokesh stated, “Jagan Reddy killed his own uncle. Is he ready to kill more family members now?” He also claimed that the Jagan government had unlawfully detained Chandrababu Naidu for 53 days. Highlighting the alleged harassment faced by TDP activists, Lokesh mentioned, “In the past 4.10 years, several cases have been filed on TDP activists, with 22 cases on me, including attempted murder and atrocity cases. The officials and YSRCP leaders who deliberately troubled the TDP leaders, their names have been codified in the Red Book.”
Launching a scathing attack on Jagan Reddy’s governance, Lokesh accused him of turning the state into the “ganja capital of India.” He expressed gratitude to start his Shankharavam yatra in Srikakulam, the birthplace of notable individuals like Garimela Satya Narayana, Sardhar Gouthu Lachanna, and Yerramnaidu.
Nara Lokesh initiated the Shankharavam campaign aimed at highlighting the alleged failures of the state government. Challenging Jagan Reddy, he questioned the audience if they were ready to send the Chief Minister to jail. Lokesh also raised concerns about the safety of individuals from backward classes and Dalits, referencing recent incidents.
Referring to specific cases, Lokesh mentioned the killing of Tahsildar Ramaiah in Visakhapatnam, the suicide of Agricultural Assistant Poojitha in Bapatla district, and the death of JE Ramakrishna in Vizianagaram district. He alleged that these incidents were linked to opposition against YSRCP leaders.
Lokesh criticized Jagan Reddy for not releasing a District Selection Committee (DSC) notification in the past four years and accused him of deceiving the youth. He pledged that if TDP forms the government, they will conduct the DSC exam every year. The Shankharavam campaign seeks to mobilize public sentiment against the current government in Andhra Pradesh.
