Visakhapatnam: YSR Congress Party leader Dadi Veerabhadra Rao flayed Andhra Pradesh chief minister Chandrababu Naidu for lowering the dignity of his office. Chandrababu appeared to be looking for excuses to blame his likely defeat on someone. Ridiculing Chandrababu Naidu's cheap politics, Veerabhadra Rao said that when YSRCP President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy was being sworn in as chief minister, the TDP supremo might do his own "swearing-in". Such was his state of mind, Veerabhadra Rao added.
The YSRCP leader pointed out that the security of millions of voters and citizens was compromised by IT Grids and demanded that the role of the TDP chief in this matter be exposed. Veerabhadra Rao sought a thorough probe into the nexus between IT Grids and the TDP. He pointed out that UIDAI had now revealed the extent to which data theft had taken place. Veerabhadra Rao described Chandrababu Naidu and Nara Lokesh as traitors. The IT minister, Nara Lokesh was involved in the data theft, he added.
The YSRCP leader commented that Chandrababu would not achieve anything by attacking a constitutional body like the Election Commission. Didn't Chandrababu Naidu win the 2014 elections when EVMs were used?, he questioned. Did he resort to tampering then? He also posed a question to Chandrababu on how the BJP could lose the Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Karnataka and Chattisgarh elections, if this was the case.
