VISAKHAPATNAM: Janepalli Srinivasa Rao, who attacked YSRC president YS Jagan Mohan Reddy on Thursday at Visakhapatnam International Airport said he attacked him not for popularity, but to ‘expose’ the misrule of the TDP government.
The CISF personnel at the VIP lounge seized the 11-page letter on his person and hand it over to the local police. ADCP Mahendrapatrudu and ACP (West) L Arjuna released the letter to media late Thursday night.
In the letter, Rao said he was an ardent fan of late Chief Minister Dr Y S Rajasekhara Reddy. He still lived in the hearts of Telugu people thanks to the several welfare programmes he had launched. But now people were facing difficulties due to the ruling government’s “anti-people” policies.
Only some people enjoyed the benefits of the government programmes and schemes, while a majority were bereft of them. Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu was running the government, which was dependant on middlemen and liquor traders. Criticising the Amaravati capital project, he went on to blame Special Category Status to AP, Maoists issue, AgriGold issue, Housing for All, Inter-caste marriages, liquor prohibition and unemployment etc for increasing the hardship of people.
He doubted if the “unrealistic” government programmes. The prices of essential commodities hit the roof. He said people would lead a happy life under the YSRC regime. But he found fault with the agriculture loan waiver scheme to be launched by YSRC and suggested that the scheme be modified to benefit more beneficiaries. He ended the letter by appealing to his family to donate his organs if anything untoward happened to him.
