Jagan Mohan Reddy asks CM on his silence in cash-for-vote video tapes

YSRC chief says state may file false cases against media if they write anti-government.

Vijayawada: Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu’s muhurtham for the Governor’s address on Monday has led to discussions among political circles.

The CM had suggested 11.06 am as the muhurtham for the Governor’s speech.

Within 30 minutes, the CM camp received a message that the Supreme Court has served notices to Chandrababu Naidu in cash-for-vote scam.

Mangalagiri MLA Alla Ramakrishna Reddy was seen asking his party leaders to watch TV scrolling before he was leaving for Assembly, since the case could come up for hearing on Monday, as it was listed as No.17.

As contemplated by Mangalagiri MLA, the Supreme Court admitted the case and served notices to the Chief Minister, asking him to file counters at the earliest.

Speaking on the same, YSRC chief Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy said grahabalam (star power) did not help the CM, though he had chosen an auspicious muhurtham for the Governor’s address.

The Leader of Opp-osition also asked CM as to why he was tight-lipped about the voice in the video tapes that were aired by several channels during the cash-for-vote scam.

Reacting to Chandrababu Naidu’s allegations that few people were trying to create communal disturbances in the state, like Trump in the US, he said: “Chandrababu has to explain the failure of law and order situation in AP.”

The YSRC chief said the state government might even be ready to file false cases against media if they write any report anti for the government. “Democracy has collapsed in the state,” he said.

Earlier on the day, Mr Jagan Mohan Reddy introduced MLC candidate Gangula Prabhakar Reddy to party leaders at YSRCLP meeting in Vijayawada, while admitting that defections have affected the party badly.
