Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has slammed the opposition TDP for politicizing natural deaths.
YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, has slammed the opposition Telugu Desam Party (TDP) for politicizing
deaths in West Godavari district's Jangareddygudem town. He stated that the opposition should stop spreading incorrect information regarding illegal liquor.
The Chief Minister stated before to the start of the general debate on the Budget in the Legislative Assembly on Monday, "18 deaths have been documented in the municipality." The death rate in the country and even in our state is believed to be 2%, which implies that at least 90 people die naturally as a result of disease, old age, or accidents."
CM SAYS THERE ARE 13,000 CASES OF ILLICIT LIQUOR.
He went on to say that the TDP has distorted the facts and politicized natural deaths. He stated that orders were issued to take rigorous steps to combat illicit booze in the state and that the state administration is opposed to illicit liquor and that orders have been made to combat it.
"More than 13,000 cases were lodged against persons involved in illicit booze, and this was done to curb illicit liquor," the CM stated.
Alla Krishna Srinivas, the Deputy Chief Minister, stated that he and officials, on the direction of the Chief Minister, visited the victims' relatives in Jangareddygudem and directed them to take appropriate actions and that the TDP has been making bogus claims for political mileage.
The minister chastised TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu for going to Jangareddygudem simply to politicize the killings, questioning whether the opposition leader went to grieve the victims or to demonstrate their might.
TDP ALLEGES YSRCP INTIMIDATION
TDP national president and former CM N Chandrababu Naidu, on the other hand, paid a visit to Jangareddygudem in West Godavari on Monday and met with families whose breadwinners perished reportedly as a result of consuming tainted whiskey.
"Jagan Mohan Reddy should be held accountable for all 26 hooch deaths in Jangareddygudem." Following the LG Polymers gas leak in Visakhapatnam, victims' families received an ex gratia payment of Rs 1 crore. Similarly, compensation of Rs 1 Cr should be granted to each of the bereaved families in Jangareddygudem," he demanded.
Chandrababu Naidu said that local Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) representatives visited the victims' families at midnight and intimidated them not to attend his Jangareddygudem gathering.
Naidu also questioned the police, claiming that they were unwilling to fight the illegal booze mafia because ruling party elites were engaged.
