GO No 1 very much within the jurisdiction of police act, says Sajjala

Must read

The YSRCP general secretary and Advisor to Government (Public Affairs) Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy on Saturday strongly objected to TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu’s open challenge to violate the GO No 1 issued in public interest.

Addressing media at the Party Central Office here , he appealed to the people to judge if such a GO, issued in the backdrop of the loss of innocent lives in the recent stampedes, is necessary or not. He said the GO was very much within the jurisdiction of the Police Act and all parties, including YSRCP, have to abide by it.

Instead of openly tendering an apology to the people for what had happened at Kandukuru and Guntur, Naidu has been resorting to political drama and chaotic demonstrations showing scant respect for law of the land. He added that the GO explains about the disadvantages of conducing rallies and meetings on roads and highways, he said.

The GO only seeks all political parties to identify alternative places like public grounds and other open places for conducting rallies and public meetings in a hassle-free manner and to prevent recurrence of the unfortunate incidents of recent stampedes.

Referring to the hue and cry being raised on the GO by pro-TDP media that the ruling YSRCP has been scuttling the opposition, he asked how come Naidu has been touring Kuppam for the last three days in that case. Faulting Naidu and his followers for trying to violate the GO on the first day of his three-day Kuppam tour, he said while the DSP tried to explain about the GO in a dignified manner, the TDP chief chose to challenge the police and yet claim that the police are not giving him due respect.
