Kurnool: TDP national president and former Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu accused the YSRCP government of driving former Speaker Kodela Siva Prasada Rao to death by harassing him to no end.
"The government deliberately circulated allegations of theft of old and worn-out furniture from Assembly office whose cost would be around a mere Rs 1.50 lakh. Kodela, who was a medical doctor by profession and a spotless as a leader, committed suicide unable to bear the humiliation," he said.
On the second day of his district tour on Tuesday, Naidu hold meetings with party leaders and cadres from various parts of district besides taking part in a programme organised to mark World Disabled Day at VJR Convention hall here.
He said Kodela was in politics for a long time and strived for the people with dedication. Such a gentleman was portrayed as a thief by the YSRCP, he lamented. On his recent visit to Amaravati capital region, Naidu said ruling party activists were instigated to attack the bus with stones, sticks and even chappals during his tour which reflects the mean attitude of the present government.
Taking a strong exception to the abusive, foul language being used by the ministers of Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy government, the TDP chief said never in his 40-year career in politics had he heard or seen any minister using such filthy language.
He said Jagan's uncle Y S Vivekananda Reddy was killed in the hands of his own relatives. At the time of that unfortunate incident, I was the chief minister, hence they demanded a probe or else it would have been hushed up, he alleged. He has also accused the YSRCP government of foisting false cases on the active TDP leaders.
