Telugu Desam Party supremo and chief minister Chandrababu Naidu saw a greater conspiracy against him and the people of Andhra Pradesh ahead of this election. Referring to the data theft case filed against the IT Grids India Private Limited by the Telangana State police, Chandrababu Naidu said the case was a conspiracy conceived by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP national president Amit Shah and YSR Congress Rajya Sabha member V Vijayasai Reddy and executed by Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao and Telangana Rastra Samithi working president K T Rama Rao to help YSR Congress chief Jaganmohan Reddy.
He found the data leak or theft case is the heinous conspiracy that Independent India had ever seen. The conspiracy was to defeat the TDP and do injustice to the people of Andhra Pradesh. He said that the BJP and TRS leaders were against the development of the State.
He alleged that Vijayasai Reddy had drafted a letter on February 19 and submitted it to the Election Commission on February 22. The Hyderabad police conducted raids on the IT Grids on February 23, which shows the clear understanding among the BJP, TRS and the YSR Congress leaders against the TDP and Andhra Pradesh. Chandrababu Naidu brushed aside the allegations of data theft by the IT Grids and said whatever data available with the IT Grids is used for the TDP’s political mobile application – Sevamitra. He said that the Aadhar data is available with the State government and the voter data is available with the Election Commission. “There is no secrecy or privacy in this data. The TDP is not misusing the data as alleged by these parties,” Chandrababu Naidu said.
Meanwhile, the two State governments have formed Special Investigation Teams (SITs) to look into the matter. While the SIT from the Telangana government reiterated that the IT Grids had stolen the crucial data belonging to the people of Andhra Pradesh, the AP SIT alleges that the TDP data was stolen from the IT Grids by the Telangana police. However, it is to be seen how the police officials of the two States move forward the case and resolve the issues.
