TD MPs and Lokesh stage silent protest at Rajghat against Naidu's arrest
VIJAYAWADA: Telugu Desam (TD) MPs and former MPs, along with Nara Lokesh, staged a silent protest at Rajghat in Delhi on Tuesday wearing black badges against the arrest of Nara Chandrababu Naidu.
The TD MPs Kesineni Srinivas alias Nani, Kinjarapu Rammohan Naidu, Galla Jayadev, and Kanakamedala Ravindra Kumar alleged that the state government is in jitters as people across the globe have taken up various protest programmes against the illegal arrest of the former chief minister and TD supremo, Chandrababu Naidu.
They said that on the first day of the Parliament session, they raised the issue of the illegal arrest of Naidu by the YSRC government led by Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy.
The MPs claimed that there was no involvement of Naidu in the AP Skill Development scam and that it was a false case fabricated by the Jagan government under political vengeance. They expressed hope for justice in the court proceedings.
They stated that Naidu was falsely accused and illegally arrested, emphasising his belief in justice and righteousness.
Lokesh, who was in Delhi for the past four days conducting interviews with national media houses and consulting legal experts, strongly objected to the arrest of TD leaders in various parts of the state who were on their way to the temples to pray that the conspiracies being hatched by the state government against Naidu should fail and that something good should be done for their leader. "The arrest of those who are on their way to the temples reflects the cowardly act of the Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy," Lokesh remarked.
Lokesh said, "I paid my respects to Mahatma Gandhi Ji at Rajghat in New Delhi, accompanied by senior party leaders. We joined in a black badge protest to condemn the unjust arrest of Chandrababu Naidu on false charges filed by the YSRC government. Justice will prevail."
