Kesineni Nani should be sacked

Senior YSRCP leader Dharmana Prasada Rao criticized Chandrababu for the manner in which his government and propaganda networks were trying to play down the attack on AP Leader of Opposition and YSRCP Chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. Prasada Rao said that Chandrababu claimed innocence and that he was falsely being accused in this matter. The senior YSRCP leader said that there is a simple solution to this--Chandrababu Naidu can get himself cleared if he is really innocent by appointing a third party agency to probe the attack on YS Jagan.

Dharmana cricticized AP DGP RP Thakur for pronouncing his conclusion and asked as to how the Special Investigation Team (SIT) constituted to probe the matter could arrive at the truth when it comprised the DGP's subordinates who cannot express an opinion at variance with that of their boss. The senior YSRCP leader also tore into Chandrababu Naidu for the irresponsibility he demonstrated by announcing straight away that the attacker was a fan of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and that his murderous assault was a part of Operation Garuda.

Dharmana wondered whether this was the manner in which a responsible Chief Minister ought to behave in a serious incident involving an attempt on the life of the Leader of the Opposition. He took serious objection to TDP MP Kesineni Nani's foul-mouthed comment that TDP workers would have made Kheema of YS Jagan a long time ago had they wished to do so. Dharmana demanded that Kesineni Nani be sacked by Chandrababu Naidu forthwith for such objectionable and unparliamentary talk.

The senior YSRCP leader also wondered why Chandrababu Naidu was rattled about Income Tax raids and reminded the AP Chief Minister that the law does not make a distinction between the rich and the poor, the weak and the powerful. If one is truly transparent with respect to one's financial transations, one would get a clean chit from tax agencies and otherwise, one would have to pay penalties. Further, if the money seized by the tax agencies cannot be accounted for, it would go into the coffers of the government and therefore where was the need to get jittery about IT raids, he questioned.

Chandrababu Naidu is bringing the State of Andhra Pradesh into disrepute by pleading with other political parties to save him from the Centre's IT raids, Dharmana said. He criticized the AP Chief Minister in very strong terms for lacking the minimum dignity his office demanded by at least calling up the Leader of Opposition, on whose life there had been a serious attempt.
