Visakhapatnam police commissioner Mahesh Chandra Ladda had given some clarity on the attack on YSR Congress chief Jaganmohan Reddy at Visakhapatnam airport on October 25. He had cleared the doubts of conspiracy in the issue, though the YSR Congress refuses it.
The conspiracy was first hinted by DGP R P Thakur, in a couple of hours after the attack, said that the attacker Srinivasa Rao, is a fan of Jaganmohan Reddy. Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu went one step forward and alleged that it was the conspiracy of Jaganmohan Reddy to get public sympathy. The Telugu Desam Party leaders including Ministers went on accusing Jaganmohan Reddy of hatching the conspiracy of attack on him by his own party activist to get sympathy.
Now, the conspiracy is clear with the Vizag police commissioner giving his statement. The police commissioner said that the attacker, Srinivasa Rao, had done this only for publicity and had even revealed the same to some of his friends who have also admitted the same.
Even the reason that the police commissioner had given for the bird picture on the New Year greetings flexi that was brought to light immediately after the attack is also not going well down the lane. It is true that there are bird lovers, snake lovers and animal lovers, but to be a lover of eagle is something new for the Godavari districts and that too during Pongal when the cock fights are popular. It is also a fact that no YSR Congress activist or sympathiser puts up banner without the picture of late Y S Rajasekhar Reddy and thus the flexi theory is not accepted as the police claim.
However, the YSR Congress is not buying the statement of the police commissioner and the party still looks at the conspiracy in the case. They raise the basic questions on the presence of the attacker Srinivasa Rao in the airport canteen owned by TDP leader Harshavardhan Chowdary. The YSR Congress had come out with the photographs of the TDP leader using the police station in his favour. The YSR Congress also questions the intentions of the police in giving no objection certificate for attacker Srinivasa Rao to work in the airport canteen when he was facing some police cases at his native in East Godavari district.
And there are questions on the intentions of the police and the Chief Minister attributing the conspiracy to the YSR Congress, hours after the attack. Unless these questions are answered, no theory or no report on the case is accepted by the people.
