Alleges threat to life from the TDP leader
PNS | VIJAYAWADA
AP Film Development Corporation (AP FDC) Chairman Posani Krishna Murali met DGP KV Rajendranath Reddy on Wednesday, and lodged a complaint against Telugu Desam Party (TDP) general secretary Nara Lokesh. Citing threat to life from the TDP leader, Posani submitted a petition to the DGP and sought police protection.
Speaking to the media persons, the AP FDC Chairman said that Lokesh was hatching a plan to eliminate him. He said he had raised concerns about his safety with the State police chief and the DGP had assured him of security.
“Lokesh put pressure on me to join the TDP and when he did not succeed, he took the help of his personal secretary Chaitanya to persuade me. When I refused to join hands with him, they started targeting me,” Posani told the media after lodging the complaint.
Criticising TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu, the AP FDC Chairman said when the Opposition leader was in the Congress, he would say he was not working for the CM post, but for the people of the State. He quit the Congress and joined the TDP only to deceive party founder Dr MT Rama Rao and subsequently installed himself as the party chief.
Posani further said if Naidu was not hungry for the top job, then he should declare Pawan Kalyan as the party’s chief ministerial candidate. “When I exposed Nara Lokesh in public, he started holding a grudge and is now conspiring to kill me,” he complained.
