YSRCP condemns attack on Shilpa; demands action

Hyderabad, Aug 24: Condemning the attack
on former MLC Shilpa Chakrapani Reddy, YSR Congress has demanded the immediate
arrest of the attackers and withdrawing the security cover to them and the
incident makes it clear that Chandrababu Naidu has been encouraging faction

 Speaking to reporters here on
Thursday party MLA G Srikanth Reddy said, ‘TDP supporters with a criminal
record had attacked the brother of our candidate Shilpa Mohan Reddy at stone’s
throw distance away from the place where the cabinet ministers have lodged
themselves and converted the hotel into a secretariat.

The person, a rowdy sheeter and close
associate of Chandrababu Naidu had fired at Chakrapani Reddy and went berserk
for nearly one hour with arms and the police fled the scene. This is an
indication of the misuse of power and the way in which faction politics are
being patronized by the Chief Minister.

During elections, in normal course it is
mandatory to deposit weapons and bullets in the respective police stations and
just within 24 hours of the polls, this Madhu had come up with his
weapon and fired at Chakrapani Reddy for resigning the MLC post of TDP before
joining YSRCP.

How can a rowdy sheeter, procure
weapon within one day of polls and how can he go on a rampage from
the hotel where the state ministers are camping?

We strongly condemn the incident and
demand that Madhu who fired at our leader be booked immediately and a case
booked under relevant sections. 

While the entire TDP contingent had
blown out of proportion, the remark of our leader, here we see that people are
roaming freely with weapons and creating a scare among the people, he said.

 While YSR has brought down the
factionism in the state by rolling out irrigation projects, Chandrababu Naidu
has been patronizing faction politics by giving protection to rowdy sheeters
and people with criminal record thereby encouraging such feuds, he said.
