Probe Naidu’s foreign trips: YSRCP

, June 24, 2013: Questioning the
foreign trips of TDP leader N Chandrababu Naidu, YSR Congress has demanded the
state and central governments to investigate into the tours which are
reportedly undertaken to mobilise funds for the impending elections.

“Naidu has
been on foreign tours before the 2004 and 2009 elections as well and his recent
US tour, though termed as personal, fits into the pattern of routing money from
offshore to fund the elections back home and we demand a thorough investigation
into all his foreign tours from 1995,” party leader Janak Prasad told reporters
here on Monday.

enjoying the status of a cabinet minister, Naidu did not attended the first
phase of budget session for a single day and in the second phase he just spoke
for four minutes and left for the US citing personal reasons.

of opposition, he did not raise his voice in support of the people who are
facing hardships and with reports that the general elections would take place
in November, he went to the US to mobilise funds and route them to the country
through some of the shell companies, he said.

“Our Party
Honorary President YS Vijayamma has made a mention about this in the petition
which the court did not admit as there were many charges made against him. Now
we demand the state and central governments to investigate his foreign tours
and the reported allegation that he has been raising funds from foreign soil
and routing them to the country through illegal means,” he said.

The drama he
enacted at

on the Uttarakhand tragedy has no conviction as he left the locals in the lurch
and placed personal interests ahead of the people’s problems of the state.

Dubai, Singapore and other places and he
is desperate this time and is going all out to route more funds, he said.

 Shifting the
tirade on union minister K Chiranjeevi, he said, “the film-star turned
politician remarks against YS Jagan Mohan Reddy have been unsavoury as he
speaks of economic offenders. When there was cache of Rs 40 crores in the house
of his kin, the case was swept under the carpet. With the investigation
agencies unable to prove a single charge against YS Jagan Mohan Reddy during
the past one-and-a-half years, Chiranjeevi’s statement is just out of place, he

“Our leader
is only accused and is in judicial custody. The minister should know the legal
terms properly before speak out in the public,” he said.  

who traded his political party (PRP) with Congress should not be speaking of
morals and YS Jagan Mohan Reddy will be the ultimate winner in people’s court,
he said.
