TDP to move Press Council on Sakshi distortions

Telugu Desam party (TDP) Polit Bureau member Yanamala Ramakrishnudu today blamed Kadapa MP and YSR Congress leader Jaganmohan Reddy for publicizing distorted versions in his own daily -Saakshi, to denigrate the rivals, especially the TDP and its Chief Chandrababu Naidu and announced that the TDP would complain to the Press council of India seeking justice and fair play.

Addressing a press conference here, he said, though Thammavaram lands near Kakinada were not form part of the Kakinada SEZ, the Saakshi daily and the TV preferred to give wrong version only with the intention of damaging the reputation of TDP and misguiding the people. The TDP government never issued any controversial GOs on the KSEZ (Kakinada SEZ) and all such thing had happened during Congress regime, he claimed and alleged that Y S Rajasekhara Reddy was responsible for forcible acquisition of nearly 8,500 acres of fertile lands issuing GOs in favour of KV Rao and KVP Ramachandrarao. TDP’s view was that 500 acres of land was sufficient for ONGC refinery. It also proposed that the SEZ should be port linked. But Jaganmohan Reddy was conveniently using his Saakshi daily and TV for mudslinging campaign, he clarified.

Ridiculing Jaganmohan reddy for still claiming his father Y S Rajasekhara Reddy as the saviour of people, Mr Ramakrishnudu said all the governmental institutions such as CAG and CBI had faulted late Y S Rajasekhara Reddy for involving in the shady deals in mining leases, lands allotment to corporate companies only to benefit his son.

“People of Andhra Pradesh will not pardon Rajasekhara Reddy for the great injustice done to the state,” he remarked.

On the present visit of Senior Congress leader Vayalar Ravi, Mr Ramakrishnudu said whatever operation he performed, the Congress would not survive.

“The Congress is now on ventilator and will collapse soon after the ventilator is removed. The Congress will perish under the weight of series of scams and no one could rescue it,” he claimed.
