Delete 60 lakh duplicate votes, conduct LS polls in Telangana and AP on same day: Jagan Reddy to CEC
Telugu Desam Party Andhra Pradesh unit president Kimidi Kala Venkata Rao on Monday alleged that there was a conspiracy in holding the elections to the Andhra Pradesh in the first phase instead of last phase.
In an open letter to KCR, Rao said, "You have forced the central government to conduct elections in advance. But we will still run like a racehorse like Usain Bolt in the coming elections."
Furthermore, he also accused TRS of sending Rs 2000 crore for helping YSRCP chief YS Jaganmohan Reddy.
"You are spending Telangana Peoples' money for Jagan Mohan Reddy. Jagan has been listening to you at every point from the selection of his party candidates to handing over B-forms. But, you can't change an iota of AP Politics. Is it not a fact that you are sending Rs. 2000 crore to Jagan for elections who has no courage to face the TDP in Andhra Pradesh? You have filled cases by proclaiming TDP's data as government data," Rao said in the letter.
"IT secretary Vijayanand and RTGS CEO Ahmad Babu categorically expressed that the data is safe. Isn't your special interest showing to protect your friend Jagan Mohan Reddy even after the government of Andhra Pradesh is ready for a forensic test if anybody has any doubts?" he stated
"Don't you know all the parties including national and local have a system to secure membership details? Collecting data is a common thing. Can you deny that the motive of 'Data Theft Case' filed by your government is to make your friend Jagan Mohan Reddy happy and to damage the brand image of Chandrababu Naidu and Navyandhra?," he added.
