NT Ramarao’s youngest daughter, Uma Maheshwari passed away after committing suicide due to prolonged illness and mental trauma. While the family is in severe distress, YSR Congress resorted to ugly politics.
YSRCP’s social media and Rajya Sabha MP Vijayasai Reddy have spread a conspiracy theory saying that Lokesh and Uma Maheshwari had a heated discussion about some land and she committed suicide after Lokesh used some foul language.
To make this story believable, they even cited some survey numbers of land in Shaikpet, Hyderabad. The local revenue official confirmed that no such survey numbers exist in Shaikpet.
They have even deployed Lakshmi Parvathi to make these allegations. Lakshmi Parvathi who did not even go to see her daughter for one last time alleged that Uma Maheshwari left behind a suicide note and it went missing after Chandrababu arrived at the house.
It is clear that YSR Congress tried to intelligently peddle this conspiracy to defame Chandrababu Naidu and Lokesh.
Both of them, however, did not speak a word on it so far. Not talking about it is okay but supporters are expecting them to file legal cases for this disgusting politics.
Telugu Desam cadre and some leaders are filing the cases but that will naturally not send the right message to the public. In the Whatsapp age, conspiracy theories travel fast and easy. This laid back attitude of the top leadership can prove to be costly.
