AMARAVATI: TDP National President and former Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu on Tuesday said that Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy, who previously passed a resolution in the State Assembly to dissolve the Legislative Council, had no right to seek votes in the MLC elections to be held shortly for the Teachers, MLA, and Local Bodies Constituencies.

Chandrababu Naidu, who held a meeting with the TDP incharge leaders online to chalk out a strategy for the MLC elections, said that because the Chief Minister felt it was a burden on the State exchequer to run the Legislative Council, Jagan obviously lost the right to seek votes. YS Jagan did not respect the Council system, he alleged.

The former Chief Minister advised his party leaders to take the elections seriously claiming that there was discontentment against the YSRCP Government and that the situation was in favour of the TDP. Chandrababu asked the TDP men to work hard for the victory of the party candidates under the Graduate's quota. He said that these elections would be a litmus test for the party incharge leaders and coordinators.

Chandrababu announced Kancharla Srikanth as the candidate for East Rayalaseema constituency, Bhumireddy Ramgopal Reddy for West Rayalaseema constituency and V Chiranjeevi Rao for north Coastal Andhra constituency under the Graduates quota and asked the cadre to work for their victory.

The TDP national president attacked YS Jaganmohan Reddy for the way he was ruling the State. Speaking about Monday’s Gannavaram violence, Naidu said that there was severe disgruntlement among the people against the Jagan-led Government.

He claimed that, as people were revolting against the YSRCP, Jagan was resorting to violence. He said that the State police too were acting at the behest of the Chief Minister and violating rules and regulations.
