The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) has dubbed the one-crore signatures of YSR Congress as a drama. Is the YSR Congress trying to intimidate the judiciary with one crore signatures demanding release of Kadapa Member of Parliament Y. S. Jaganmohan Reddy, the TDP asked.

Addressing a press conference here on Saturday, TDP State general secretary Varla Ramaiah said that Suresh Kalmadi and Kanimozhi, both accused in graft caes, bowed their heads before the law and fought in court of law. YSR Congress leader should take a cue from them and respect the law of the land.

The signature campaigns are generally taken up for a noble cause. Government conferred Bharat Ratna on Jyothi Rao Phule and Ambedkar following signature campaigns.

A Similar campaign was taken demanding Bharat Ratna to N. T. Rama Rao, he said, adding, “the campaign should have a cause and meaning but not politically motivated.”
