Naidu denied even clean drinking water in jail: Ashok Gajapathi Raju

Ex-minister urges central government to safeguard democracy in Andhra Pradesh

Kakinada: Former union minister P. Ashok Gajapathi Raju has alleged that former chief minister N. Chandrababu Naidu is not being provided even clean drinking water in the Central Jail in Rajahmundry. As a result, the former CM is suffering from dehydration, he stated.

Ashok Gajapathi Raju called on Chandrababu Naidu’s wife Bhuvaneswari in Rajahmundry on Friday and expressed his solidarity.

He, along with former home minister and Peddapuram MLA Nimmakayala China Rajappa, TD state vice president Nallamilli Ramakrishna Reddy and Sujana Krishna Ranga Rao, told reporters that the state government is treating the TD chief inhumanly, though he is not guilty of anything.

The former union minister demanded that the central government intervene into the issue and protect democracy in AP. He said it is centre’s duty to observe law and order situation. It should take appropriate action if the state violates laws, so that administration could be streamlined.

Ashok Gajapathi Raju pointed out that though the Supreme Court has reprimanded state government on several issues, there has been no change in the government. He asked YSRC ministers to be cautious and behave well, as TD is going to assume power in the coming elections.

The former union minister asserted that TDP will forever fight for development, welfare and protection of Telugu people.
