Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief and former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu today ridiculed Vijayamma Honorary president of YSR Congress party for making hue and cry over her son Jaganmohan Reddy’s arrest who had indulged in amassing of wealth to the tune of Rs 140 lakh crores making gross misuse of his father Late Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy’s official position. Addressing the voters during the road show at Gollapalem as part of his election campaign in Ramachandrapuram Assembly constituency, he faulted Ms Vijayamma for blindly supporting her son who was responsible for the arrest of several bureaucrats, industrialists and even a Minister. He said Ms Vijayamma alone should be held responsible for tolerating her son all these years while he was committing severe economic offences. People were well aware of the series of events leading to the arrest of Jagan and those helped him in the economic offences. Under any circumstances they would not believe the sentiment game being enacted by Vijayamma and her daughter, he asserted. Lashing out at Congress regime for the present rampant corruption, Mr Chandrababu alleged that Law Minister himself had turned into a broker to corrupt the judiciary and another Minister and PCC President himself was running liquor business under Benami.
He called upon the people to give a fitting lesson to both the Congress and the YSR Congress which were the two faces of the same coin by voting to success the TDP nominee in the byelection.
