Speaker: Ambati Rambabu -Mar9,2012

YSR Congress Party on Friday said the very same group that has worked against YSR is trying to defame YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and try to gain some mileage in the ensuing by-election. 
“The request of a media baron to provide security to him and his group of companies as he perceives threat following the possible arrest of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is nothing but a ploy to confuse Kovur voters before the by-elections,” party spokesperson Ambati Rambabu told reporters here. 
When reams and reams of news was written day in and day out against YSR during his five-year-and-three-month term, was there any attack on the media house or other group of companies of the owner? This is just a creation by the media baron to confuse the voters and try to deviate their attention, he said. 
“In the first place the media man should first spell out as to where from did he get the news that Jagan would be arrested, which is the premise of his request to provide security. How did he foresee that there would be loss to his property? “he asked.
The move is sending a subtle message and it is damaging. Our party will not tolerate such unethical means; he said and took strong objection to TDP President N Chandrababu Naidu’s repeated pleas to the voters not to read this paper or not to see this channel.
The press should be asking why a person will be arrested instead of writing that someone will be arrested without showing any plausible evidence. Beyond that here is a person who feels a threat, perceived or otherwise, and seeks protection. The ploy is only to defame YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and try to gain some support on the eve of the by-elections, he said.  
Asserting that the party will get a resolute majority in Kovur, while the ruling Congress and opposition TDP are keenly contesting for minor placing in all the constituencies, he said, it was Kadapa and Pulivendula first, now the 7 seats followed by 17 and the results be the same for them. 
He also took strong objection to the remarks of Chandrababu Naidu against YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. People will decide in the by-election as to who is what and TDP and Congress will be cut to size and they will be shown their place.
A day will come, he said, when the truth of land allotments to the media baron will also come out and his turn of turmoil is in the offing. Neither TDP nor Congress or both the parties put together can save him when things come out into the open.
