Congress culture led to Srinivas’ murder: Jagadish

Power Minister G Jagadish Reddy today vehemently criticized the Congress leaders for resorting to “corpse politics” with no agenda to make it to public.

Talking to the media on Tuesday, the minister said the alleged murder of Boddupally Srinivas was due to the “bad culture” of the Congress leadership. There is no truth in the Congress charges against the TRS leaders, he said. He said sensing arrival of the leadership and himself to the incident spot, Congress leader Komatireddy Venkat Reddy enacted a drama. The TRS did not threaten Srinivas to join the party for second time as he was earlier suspended from the party, he said.

Jagadish Reddy also rejected the allegations as baseless that TRS MLA Vemula Veeresham was involved in the murder of Srinivas. There was no relation to Veeresham or the TRS leadership with the murder, he clarified. “It is the bad culture of the Congress that the leadership used to fight among themselves and strip and hit each other, he charged.

“Such things do not take place in the TRS and our leaders are not into the murder politics”, he said. The minister accused the Congress of destroying many villages, which turned into burial grounds with no developmental activity. Being envious at the political growth of Veeresham, Venkat Reddy was playing politics with call data information which was a drama, he alleged.

The Congress leadership was enacting dramas after the incident only for political mileage, he said. Denying the Congress’ demand for CBI inquiry to unravel truth, he said the former was trying to blackmail the police, he said. “It is an insult to our State police and there was a deliberate attempt to mislead the murder case”. He also slammed the Congress leaders for making a hue and cry to divert the attention of people of their internal fights. The TRS will move court against the Congress for false charges and file defamation cases, he added. (NSS)
