TDP national general secretary Nara Lokesh has criticized the arrest of Achennai during the panchayat elections as the culmination of Rajareddy’s constitution. TDP state president Achennaidu in Nimmad said he strongly condemned the arrest. Jagan Reddy has been committing such cowardly acts across the state for fear of losing the panchayat elections.
Vaikapa leader Duvvada Srinivas, who attacked Achennaidu’s house in Nimmada with rods and knives, alleged that the police had not even registered a case against his followers. TDP-backed Sarpanchi candidate Pushpavati Srinivasareddy was killed in Gollalagunta village in Jaggampeta zone of East Godavari district on Monday. Lokesh said that Achennaidu has been arrested recently.
