Vijayawada: Striking an emotional chord, YSR Congress honorary president Y.S. Vijayamma appealed to people, saying that she was placing her son YS Jagan Mohan Reddy in ‘your safe hands’ as he resumes the Praja Sankalpa Yatra.
Speaking to media on Sunday, she said, “We have no faith in the investigation as the DGP and Chief Minister set the tune of the exercise by rushing to the press with concocted versions aimed at diluting the case of the October 25 attack on Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy even before the probe began. It was a providential escape for him and he was saved only because he always carries people’s blessings with him. If the leader of the opposition has no protection in the VIP lounge of the airport, what is the scale of law and order in the state? No sharp objects are allowed inside the airport? How can someone enter the place with a sharp knife? This is the key point which the state investigation opted to ignore as the TD leadership started making light of the incident by speaking in terms of the depth of injury and measurement of the weapon to dilute the investigation.”
Vijayamma added she was told there were failed attempts to attack Mr Reddy in Guntur and Godavari districts and it was the presence of a large crowd that made the mission impossible.
