AMARAVATI: Telugu Desam Party National President and former Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu on Saturday strongly objected to the manner in which former Minister and TDLP Deputy Leader K. Atchannaidu was picked up from his house and later shown as arrested by the ACB officials.
He termed it as inhuman to give so much trouble to Atchannaidu who has undergone a surgery very recently and needed rest. Records were fabricated and false cases were booked in order to arrest the TDP leader.
Mr. Naidu spoke to the media at the Guntur General Hospital premises today. The TDP chief was given permission by the police to call on Atchannaidu. The Coronavirus restrictions were cited as the reason. Then, Mr. Naidu spoke to the hospital superintendent and enquired about the TDP leader’s health.
Mr. Naidu blamed the Government for targetting and harassing the Atchannaidu family as they have been actively working in the TDP for over 35 years. The latest arrest was only because the ruling YCP was afraid of facing TDP onslaught on the sand, land, mines, liquor and other scams. JC Prabhakar Reddy and his son Asmith Reddy were also arrested for not surrendering to the Government.
The TDP chief said that rampant misuse of power and official machinery marked the Jagan Reddy rule. TDP MLAs and MLCs were lured with inducements and threats.
