The Andhra Pradesh police on Wednesday booked YSR Congress president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy for allegedly making objectionable remarks against Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu during by-poll campaign in Nandyal Assembly constituency of the state.
The Nandyal police booked the Leader of Opposition under sections 188, 504 and 506 of the IPC and section 125 of the Representation of People’s Act (RPA).
The IPC sections relate to disobedience to order promulgated by public servant, intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace and criminal intimidation.
The RPA section relates to promoting enmity between classes in connection with election. The bypoll in Nandyal took place on Wednesday.
During the campaign early this month for his party candidate Silpa Chandra Mohan Reddy in Nandyal, Jagan allegedly said “There is nothing wrong in shooting a person like Chandrababu Naidu who did not honour even one of the promises made”. (With PTI Inputs)
