YSRC leader V Vijayasai Reddy issued privilege notice against Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu for his remarks on Prime Minister’s Office (PMO). He also raised objections against the allegations made against him by Chandrababu Naidu for meeting the Prime Minister.
He said as MP he had every right to meet the Prime Minister and does not require permission from Chandrababu Naidu. He said he never did anything behind the curtains like Chandrababu Naidu. He alleged that Chandrababu Naidu was known for having backdoor dealings with the leaders and wondered how he could attribute the same to him.
Vijayasai Reddy handed over the privilege notice to Rajya Sabha chairman M Venkaiah Naidu, citing the statements of Chandrababu Naidu in AP Assembly and Legislative Council. Chandrababu Naidu had blamed both Vijayasai Reddy for making rounds in the Prime Minister’s Office and the PMO for allowing an accused in several corruption cases to be seated in the office and keep meeting officials/ministers in PMO. He had made these comments during his speeches in both Houses of AP in the presence of the MLAs and MLCs.
Vijayasai Reddy said “he would expose Chandrababu Naidu and his dark deals in the days to come. To begin with, he made allegations like Chandrababu Naidu meeting Vijaya Malya in London and accepting Rs 150 crore donations from him for 2009 and 2014 elections. He further said Chandrababu Naidu had visited London for three days from March 12, 2016 and met Vijaya Malya, who had fled from India on March 1, 2016”. He asked “Chandrababu Naidu to answer his questions on his meeting with Vijaya Malya and taking election fund from him”.
With the fresh allegations of Vijayasai Reddy against Chandrababu Naidu, the war is intensified in the State as the TDP leaders countered it. Nara Lokesh was one of the first leaders to react to these allegations who dared the YSR Congress MP to prove his charges against his father.
It looks like Vijayasai Reddy took it seriously and personally as Chandrababu Naidu and his men have made personal attack on him. Chandrababu Naidu made the personal allegations against Vijasai Reddy three days in a row which is taken seriously by the YSR Congress MP.
