TDP senior leader Revanth Reddy has alleged that there was a clear collusion between the Congress and the YSR Congress under which the ruling party had helped the latter in the just-concluded by-elections.
Speaking to the media here on Thursday, he said that the Congress party had entered into this “dark” agreement to defeat the TDP. He said that this was the reason why the Chief Minister has taken several steps that would generate sympathy to the YSR Congress chief Y S Jaganmohan Reddy.
Stating that all those who had started splinter groups of Congress earlier had merged them in the Congress, Revanth Reddy said Jagan, who had purchased the YSR Congress from one Shiva Kumar of Nalgonda would either merge it in Congress or sell it to the ruling party.
Revanth Reddy has alleged that Congress leaders have worked for the victory of the YSR Congress in the by-elections. He said that at every seat where TDP had winning chances, Congress leaders had worked for the victory of the YSR Congress candidates.
The TDP official spokesperson also said that it was to generate sympathy for him that Jagan was brought to the court in a van in which petty thieves are generally brought. Jagan created a big scene over it and gained the sympathy of the voters, he added. He said that it was strange that the YSR Congress leaders, who had entered into a dark agreement with the Congress, were criticizing the TDP. He said that the collusion of Jagan with Congress was evident as he had launched Indira Media, in the name of the former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. He questioned why the government was not canceling the mines allotted to Bharati Cements and Saraswati Cements of Jaganmohan Reddy. He said that it was mean politics that Jagan was working in tandem with those who called his late father Dr Y S Rajasekhara Reddy a corrupt person
