Former Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu has lashed out at the YSRCP stating that it has harassed former Speaker Dr Kodela Siva Prasada Rao mentally, physically and financially by slapping cases on him. Kodela’s was a case of murder by the YSRCP Government, he said and demanded a CBI probe into the death.
Naidu said despite the letters sent by Kodela Siva Prasada Rao to take away the furniture, the Government had filed cases after receiving them.
He said on August 20, Kodela had sent a letter and on Narasaraopeta MLA Gopireddy Srinivasa Reddy lodged a complaint two days later. Subsequently, they filed cases against Kodela and his son Kodela Sivaram, he added.
“When he was ready to hand over furniture, what’s the need for filing cases against. Is it not harassment? A man who has charge sheets against him for financial frauds worth Rs 43,000 crore, has filed cases against Kodela for furniture worth Rs 2 lakh. They have filed 19 cases against Kodela, including the old ones, which have been reopened now.”
Calling Kodela “Palnati Tiger”, he said even the police humiliated him by not responding to his appeal. He alleged that all police officials and IAS officers had surrendered to the ruling party.
