Flash: Jagan’s MLA consumes poison

In yet another stunning incident, YS Jagan’s trusted lieutenant, YSR Congress MLA Kapu Ramachandra Reddy has consumed a pesticide at Rayadurgam police station to commit suicide. Police rushed him to hospital immediately, and his condition is said to be stable for now.

Accusing police of harassing his followers in the name of counselling, MLA Kapu Ramachandra Reddy went into a heated argument with police on Tuesday afternoon. He commented that police are using third degree on his followers as they are unable to beat him politically. Situation turned tense with police paying no heed to the MLA after which he drank poison in a bid to commit suicide. Reddy is one of those first MLAs who resigned to his MLA seat when Congress Working Committee decided to bifurcate Andhra Pradesh.

With Governor’s rule in place, there is no way all these political competitors get their powers exercised and that might have forced Kapu to showcase his protest this way. YSR Congress called for Rayadurgam bandh tomorrow in the wake of this incident.
