In a sharp reaction to the YSRCP’s allegations over the sudden demise of YS Vivekananda Reddy, the TDP took a scathing attack on YSRCP. TDP senior leader C Adinarayana Reddy said that there were disputes between their family members and warned not drag TDP unnecessarily.
Adinarayana Reddy claimed that despite having differences, within their family, they have been blaming the TDP for his death, which was unethical on the part of the YSRCP leaders and YS Rajasekhar Reddy’s family.
The TDP leader added that the YS Jagan has the habit of blindly blaming TDP for everything that happens in their family. Adinarayana Reddy, while acknowledging the chronology of events happened aftermath of the Vivekananda Reddy’s death, he said, “First they announced that it was natural death due to stroke. After three hours, they are blaming TDP. Started political drama on the death of Vivekananda Reddy by the Jagan”.
He questioned that, how would the TDP get benefit from the death of Vivekananda Reddy? “If at all, as the YSRCP leaders claimed, the TDP involved in it, it would be damage and negative impact on us. Think over it, logically”, he requested the public.
Adinarayana demanded the Director General of Police RP Thakur to constitute a Special Investigation Team to probe into the case. He also added that the TDP will write a request letter to DGP to form the SIT. He blamed that, “It is a habit of Jagan to blame TDP for everything that happened in their family. Even if an ant bites him, he will blame the TDP, Chandrababu Naidu, N Lokesh and me. It was evident even in the case of a cockfight knife attack incident, which took place recently at Vizag airport.”
The TDP leader further demanded that the case must be also investigated by the forensic department to establish the truth and to collect complete evidence.
He demanded that not even a single evidence related to the case should be left over. He also stated that they did not have any objection if the YSRCP wanted to investigate the case by even the National Investigation Agency or any other third party in the country to establish impartial truth behind the mystery. Stating that, YSRCP leaders have been resorting to personal criticism of TDP leaders, he explained that they too have families and they were suffering from personal criticism.
Adinarayana Reddy said, “Vivekananda Reddy is one of my good friends. I had close relations with him. I shocked to know the sudden death of him.” He said that the YSRCP has been claiming that they were only giving high priority to the Reddy community, which was not true. “I belong to Reddy community. I am very much happy to be in TDP. There is an equal priority to all castes in TDP, unlike in YSRCP.”, he added.
