Till the other day, YSR Congress party leaders had been saying that they had absolutely no faith in the Andhra Pradesh police officials, who they alleged, were acting like puppets of Telugu Desam Party president and chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu.
After YSRC president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy refused to cooperate with Andhra police in the Visakhapatnam knife attack case, the YSRC leaders have stopped filing cases in AP on any issue. They were openly telling the media that they had no faith in Andhra police at all.
Instead, they preferred to lodge complaints with the Telangana police, as they were getting complete support from Tealngana government – whether it was Y S Sharmila’s complaint against social media groups, or IT Grids case or even the latest Lakshmi Parvathi’s case.
Now that the elections are over and there is every possibility of YSRC coming to power in AP, the party leaders have started approaching the Andhra Pradesh police. A couple of days ago, YSR Congress party general secretary and Rajya Sabha member V Vijaya Sai Reddy complained to Tadepalli police alleging that he had been receiving life-threatening calls from Telugu Desam Party supporters. He even gave a few phone numbers from which he was getting threatening calls.
Sai Reddy alleged that he was being threatened not to speak or post anything against TDP president and chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu. “Initially, I did not pay much attention to those threat calls, but the calls were on the rise and were disturbing me. Some TDP leaders also threatened to kill me and I even have video footage of that,” he said.
There is a reason for Sai Reddy approaching the Tadepalli police station. Just a day before the polling, the Election Commission transferred the inspectors in Tadepalli and posted new cops, who are said to be closer to YSRC. So, Sai Reddy approached them!
