TDP leaders meet EC, hit out at Jagan over attack on Naidu

Following the attack on the convoy of Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu on Saturday, his party colleagues demanded that Election Commission disqualify former Congress MP, Y S Jaganmohan Reddy, from contesting Lok Sabha by-election from Kadapa, if he continued with the "acts of goondaism."

Senior TDP legislators Dadi Veerabhadra Rao, M Narasimhulu and others met State Chief Electoral Officer, Bhanwarlal, in Hyderabad on Saturday evening and submitted a petition against Jagan following attack on Naidu's road show at Lingala on Saturday.

They sought a tough action from the EC.

In a separate statement, TDP politburo member Yanamala Ramakrishnudu, Parliamentary Party leader Nama Nageswara Rao and former Home Minister T Devender Goud condemned the attack on Chandrababu Naidu's convoy, saying that Jagan was resorting to such acts only out of the fear of losing the by-election.

"Jagan is trying to spread his family's violent culture across the state and grab power. He has no regard for democracy," they said.
