Amaravati, May 21:
In the wake of the High Court single bench verdict canceling the Parishad elections (MPTC and ZPTC) in Andhra Pradesh, Government Advisor (Public Affairs) Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy said that the verdict was unfortunate.
Addressing a press conference here on Friday, he said that elections were a part of democracy and the government conducted polls keeping Covid-19 in view as the elected candidates would be available to serve the public during pandemic crisis. He said the election process was completed under difficult circumstances of pandemic conditions.
Recalling the earlier incidents, Mr Ramakrishna Reddy said that he was shocked that the elections were postponed using the pandemic as an excuse even when the government was ready . Every time a blatant attempt was made to obstruct it with some excuse. He stated that the TDP had made vicious moves knowing that they cannot win over YSRCP. He expressed confidence that YSRCP will win any election, as people were on their side since they were happy with the good governance of Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy.
Further, speaking on the Supreme Court verdict on granting bail to YSRCP rebel MP Raghurama Krishnam Raju, he said that all the people knew how he had incited violence and hatred among various castes and religions and the drama of police assault. He welcomed the Court’s decision of allowing the investigation leaving no objections in the CID case.
