Hyderabad: The TDP Politburo member, Mr K Yerrannaidu, has said that the attack on MIM MLAs, Mr Akbaruddin Owaisi and Mr Ahmed Balal was the failure of the government.
In a press release here, he stated that the attack was an indication of how the law and order situation has deteriorated in the city. He said that if the Chief Minister, Mr N. Kiran Kumar Reddy had hesitated to go to the hospital to enquire about the health of the MLAs, it showed to what extent the law and order had deteriorated.
The former MP and former Union Minister said that the government was adopting a lackadaisical attitude towards the increasing violent incidents and robberies in the State. He claimed that during the regime of his party chief, Mr N. Chandrababu Naidu, he had stamped out anti-social elements with an iron hand. On the other hand, Dr Y S Rajasekhara Reddy, who became chief minister later, had encouraged anti-social elements and had contributed to the deterioration of law and order. YSR had kept silent even when land annexations, murders, rapes and kidnaps were occurring all around him.
Mr Yerrannaidu has alleged that development in all the sectors was getting slackened because of the deterioration of law and order and the State’s image was getting damaged. He demanded the resignation of the Home Minister, Ms Sabita Indra Reddy for her failure to maintain law and order in the State. He hoped that the MLAs who were being treated in the hospital would recover soon. (NSS)
