Amaravathi : The State Cabinet Minister, Mr Seediri Appalaraju, is allegedly involved in significant irregularities in his hometown, Palasa, and the State Government is reportedly responding with a vengeful attitude towards anyone who exposes these anomalies in the Assembly segment, according to Mr Kinjerapu Atchen Naidu, the president of the TDP‘s State unit.
According to the statement released on Sunday, Mr Atchen Naidu expressed grave concern over the State Government’s alleged retaliation against those who speak out against Mr Seediri Appalaraju’s alleged misconduct. He condemned the demolition of the culvert in front of the residence of local TDP leader, Mr Nagaraju, in Kasibugga municipality of Palasa Assembly segment in Srikakulam district, describing it as a barbaric act.
Mr Atchen Naidu criticized the governance under dictatorial and miscreant rulers, stating that suppression, harassment, and rowdyism have reached an all-time high in the State. He even compared the situation to the British regime, suggesting that the current level of suppression is worse.
The TDP State unit president expressed dismay at the deployment of hundreds of police personnel to prevent TDP leaders from visiting the affected individuals whose houses were demolished in Palasa. He pointed out the contrast between Chief Minister Mr Jagan’s targeting of the Leader of the Opposition’s residence and the ruling party’s grassroots level leaders targeting local TDP leaders’ houses.
Mr Atchen Naidu further stated that the people are witnessing attacks on TDP activists across the State, condemning the State Government’s vengeful attitude towards opposition party leaders. He predicted that the State Government, which is resorting to demolitions, will face collapse in the upcoming elections. As a demand, he insisted on the immediate and unconditional release of TDP leaders such as Mr Ram Mohan Naidu, Ms Gowthu Sirisha, Mr Nagaraju, and other party members and activists who were allegedly detained.
