In defaming the Chief Minister of AP, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and his government, it looks like TDP is leaving no stone unturned. However, while doing so, it has always been the TDP who is finally getting itself in trouble again and again. While it is trying all its best to defame the YSRCP government without any reason, the TDP, in turn, is getting affected by its own deeds publicly. While he was covering a line programme for his channel in Ongole town, a video journalist had collapsed and then died due to cardiac arrest on Saturday.
They identified him as Veeragandham Sandip aged 31 years. On the Amaravati issue, he was covering the Pro-TDP really while he died. Like in the past were on the death of an old man standing in the queue to get subsidised onions, the TDP wanted to take advantage of this issue too. They tried to portray this as a death due to the attack by the police. They started to weave around a story saying that the journalist had died by the scuffle that broke out due to the policy excess. Nara Lokesh was immediately made to come to Ongole.
There were trials by them to make it a big issue from this incident while trying to run down the TDP. The pro-TDP media also included in this. However, as Lokesh tried to drag the Amaravati issue into all this, it was immediately realised by all the other reporters that the TDP was trying to get political mileage out of this. By this, they strongly opposed such attempts by adding that they would not allow themselves to be taken for a ride. Sandeep did not die due to the police excerise is what said by the locals there. According to them, Sandeep had died due to cardiac arrest due to exhaustion. As they couldn't sustain the fake story, the TDP leaders had to silently leave the place.
