‘Law and order deteriorated under TDP rule’

BJP State president Kanna Lakshminarayana shot off yet another letter to Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu on Wednesday, seeking to know whether he could assure the people that the TDP would not forge a pre or post-poll alliance with the Congress.

Stating that the TDP had come into being with the sole objective of dislodging the Congress from power, Mr. Lakshminarayana wondered how could it get closer to that party now.

Call money racket

Mr. Lakshminarayana further asked Mr. Naidu if he was prepared for a CBI inquiry into the call money racket, and alleged that it was going on unchecked with the tacit support of the TDP leaders and activists.

Accusing the government of being a mute spectator, even as the racketeers ruined the lives of hundreds of women, the BJP leader said, though 1,700 cases had been booked, chargesheets were filed only in a few of them.

The BJP leader said law and order had deteriorated under the TDP rule as the leaders and cadre attacked government officers. BJP national president Amit Shah had also been attacked during his visit to Tirupati, he said. “The government should explain whether it is encouraging the anti-social elements,” Mr. Lakshminarayana said.
