Police threatening YSRCP supporters

Hyderabad, July 15, 2013: The
Congress Government has been misusing official machinery by foisting false
cases against sympathizers of YSRCP in the panchayat elections in the garb of
the recent Supreme Court verdict, Party senior leader Dr MV Mysoora Reddy has

“The apex court verdict has been misinterpreted
and police have been arresting adversaries of Congress and remanding them to
judicial custody depriving them of the opportunity to contest or vote. They
have been threatening YSRCP supporters and the Government is misusing the
official machinery on a large scale,” he told reporters here on Sunday.

As the Supreme Court verdict has far reaching
consequences, it should be reviewed, discussed, debated and a foolproof
legislation should be brought in as all political parties are opposing
criminalization of politics.

There is every possibility that the government
in power can misuse the apex court verdict given in good faith.

“In the panchayat elections, the state has
unleashed police force which is playing havoc with innocent people who belong
to other parties. Even an inspector can book a case and send the prospective
sarpanch to remand making him ineligible to contest or vote in the election.

We demand that police should shun from such
highhanded behaviour and the misuse of State machinery should be stopped.

Besides misuse of official machinery, Congress
and TDP are openly helping each other and trying to field a common candidate
against YSRCP supporters. This trend was there in earlier elections as well and
the results will be the same now, he said.
