YCP leader and former home minister Vasantha Nageswara Rao is in soup as he is now facing the allegations of threatening a government employee as well as threatening Irrigation minister Devineni Uma with dire consequences.
Going into details, Vasantha Nageswara Rao has telephoned Guntupalli Panchayat secretary over the removal of flexis in the village and threatened him. He alleged that his son wouldn't spare anyone and said even he would hire people from Kadapa against his opponents.
Scared Guntupalli Panchayat secretary has registered a police case against Vasantha Nageswara Rao and stated that he and his family are in danger. He alleged that he has life-threat in his complaint to police. He said that Vasantha had enquired him about his children and where they were studying. Cops have listened to the telephone conversation of Vasantha Nageswara Rao and the Panchayat secretary.
Cops have come to conclusion that Vasantha has threatened the secretary and even made severe comments against minister Devineni Uma. Cops are seeking legal opinion in this matter to take it forward. A case has been booked against Vasantha Nageswara Rao. The audio tape is expected to be sent to forensic lab.
As per reports, Vasantha was heard saying, "I act systematically. Whereas Krishna Prasad (Vasantha Nageswara Rao's son) is not like me. He will act tough. He is ready for anything. He doesn't mind throwing money or even doing murders. Not only Krishna Prasad, even Jagan hates Uma. Jagan doesn't want to see Devineni Uma in the Assembly. I came here to defeat (Devineni Uma). If needed even he will bring people from Kadapa."
Apparently, the issue has gone to CM Chandrababu Naidu's notice. Naidu is said to be serious on the matter. TDP leaders have informed Naidu that a case has been registered against Vasantha Nageswara Rao and a probe is underway. Naidu told TDP leaders to deal things in fair way. He even told his colleagues to raise the issue in the AP Legislative Assembly.
