Former Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu is already in jail in a case with no proper ground and it looks like Jagan Mohan Reddy is gearing up to jail Nara Lokesh as well.
CID has filed a Petition in the ACB Court naming Nara Lokesh as A14 in Inner Ring Road case. Arrest may be imminent now.
Elections in Andhra Pradesh are just six months away. Even a kid will understand the motive of arresting the Opposition leaders.
It is clear that Jagan Mohan Reddy wants the Opposition in jail. Already there are reports about extensive voter list manipulation across Andhra Pradesh. If the main leaders are in jail, Jagan need not worry about anyone questioning him.
Probably the response for Chandrababu‘s district tours and Lokesh‘s Yuva Galam may have triggered panic in Jagan. But the problem is people are not fools to miss the idea behind these arrests just before the elections.
Politicians often underestimate the intelligence of the public. But they will never forgive the attempts to misuse power and manipulate Elections.
We may even see a mandate shocking Jagan even with the Opposition in jail.
