Vizianagaram: Launching an open attack against his opponent YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu described him as a criminal and murderer.
Addressing a roadshow in Salur of Vizianagaram district accompanied by Kishore Chandra Deo and Banj Dev, party candidates for Araku Lok Sabha and Salur Assembly constituencies respectively on Thursday, he said Jagan was trying to get political mileage out of his uncle’s murder.
Naidu said Jagan’s family tried to project the murder as heart attack initially and later they changed their tune and brought in another drama of a letter purportedly written by the victim accusing his driver of the crime.
“He (YS Jagan Mohan Reddy) killed his own uncle (YS Vivekananda Reddy) and now is playing a drama over it. He accuses me of the murder and calls me ‘Chief Criminal’. I had not faced any case, while his life is full of cases. You will not be safe and secure if such people are voted to power. Your women will not be safe on the roads. Under his government, every street will have a rowdy,” Naidu said during poll campaigning in Saluru, Vizianagaram district.
