Tirupati: YSR Congress MLA R.K. Roja on Sunday accused the TD national president and AP CM N. Chandrababu Naidu of masterminding the murder of former MP and YSRC chief Y.S. Jagan’s uncle, Y.S. Vivekananda Reddy.
Addressing mediapersons after having a darshan of Lord Venkateswara at Tirumala on Sunday, Ms Roja alleged, “When Y.S. Raja Reddy was murdered, TD was in power. When there was a murder attempt on Y.S. Jagan, TD was in power and when this murder happened, TD was again in power. With this people can understand about conspiracies being hatched by the Telugu Desam.”
She also blamed TD minister Adinarayana for the alleged murder of Vivekananda Reddy. “It’s not new for Telugu Desam opting for murder politics. Adinarayana Reddy’s hand is behind the murder of Vivekananda Reddy, he executed the plan hatched by the TD as they were afraid of losing at Jammalamadugu constituency”, she alleged.
Demanding a CBI probe into the murder, Ms. Roja said “When Paritala Ravindra was murdered in Anantapur the same Chandrababu Naidu demanded a CBI probe while Y.S. Rajashekhar Reddy was the AP Chief Minister. The then CM immediately ordered a CBI probe and the investigation was carried out in a transparent manner. Why has Chandrababu not ordered for a CBI probe now? Mr. Naidu is scared of a CBI probe, as it will reveal the truth behind the murder.”
