"I am asking a straight question to Chandrababu Naidu.. If you are not at fault, why are you hesitating to give this case for CBI inquiry," he said.
Naming certain police officials who, he alleged, helped the Telugu Desam Party, he sought their removal from their posts.
Vivekananda Reddy did not have security, he said.
Police had initially registered a case under Section 174 Cr P C (unnatural death) when Reddy's body was found by his staff early in the morning.
After post-mortem in the local government hospital, police confirmed the case was altered to Section 302 IPC that relates to murder.
On Friday, Vivekananda Reddy's party, YSR Congress, demanded a CBI probe into the case even as the state government constituted a Special Investigation Team, headed by CID Additional Director General of Police Amit Garg, to probe the death.
"Truth is truth. Nothing can be hidden. They wanted to use a family member's murder for political gains. It is a misfortune to have such a leader in politics," Naidu said, hitting out at the YSR Congress chief.
Rejecting Jagan Mohan Reddy's demand for a CBI investigation, Naidu had said the demand was raised only to get away from the case.
