Murder Attempt on YS Jagan: AP Leaders Response
Attack on Jagan at Visakhapatnam Airport shocked everyone, even the opposition parties. A youngster named Srinivasa Rao who works at a restaurant in the airport attacked Jagan while taking a selfie, where thousands of people are watching.
Jagan was escaped with a deep cut on his left shoulder which has fueled fire between TDP and YSRCP. YSRCP claimed that the cafeteria where Srinivasa Rao was owned by ruling Telugu Desam Party leader Harshavardhan, making the doubt stronger.
Srinivasa Rao made the attempt when a party leader was clicking a selfie with Jagan, therefore, the accused had committed the offence of attempt to murder (IPC section 307).
Many political leaders along with YSCRCP condemned the attack. "Strongly condemn the attack on Opposition Leader @ysjagan garu that happened at Vizag airport. Such cowardly attacks have no place in the modern society," Nara Lokesh tweeted.
AP Home Minister Chinarajappa also strongly condemned the murder attempt on Jagan and promised that the culprit will be punished severely.
On the other hand, AP CM Chandrababu Naidu targeted the Centre over the incident.
