Vijayawada: If the Chief Minister treats winning in local bodies’ elections as his victory, Leader of Opposition Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy has dared him to disqualify the defected 21 MLAs and go for fresh elections. Speaking to media at Assembly media point, Jagan said they were ready to accept the result of those elections as referendum and also dared CM Naidu whether he was ready to accept the same or not.  

The YSRC chief alleged that the Chief Minister purchased MPTCs and ZPTCs for Rs 20-30 lakh, and how come the outcome be considered a victory. He said the ruling TD used money power to win the elections. He said the TD won despite not having a majority in all the three constituencies where the polls were held. Mr Chandrababu Naidu has proved himself to be an expert in horse-trading, Jaganmohan Reddy alleged.

 

He said Naidu has no right to speak on corruption, as he has indulged in pumping money during the elections for Telangana Council. He also criticised Chandrababu Naidu for presenting the budget without facts. Reacting to poll outcome, YSRC MLA Gadikota Srikanth Reddy said the YSRC cadre should not be demoralised as the victory was immoral and was achieved using money power.

He dared the TD leadership to ensure that the turncoats be made to resign their posts and fight the elections again. Only such a move will help the candidates know their real strength, said a YSRC leader. YSR Congress MLA Korumutla Srinivasulu said the TD leaders used the police personnel to kidnap their party voters and even made them swear in the presence of religious leaders that they would vote for the TD in the polls.
