The central office of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy-led Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) in Tadepalli of Guntur in Andhra Pradesh was demolished on Saturday, June 22, by the Andhra Pradesh Capital Region Development Authority (APCRDA). The under-construction YSRCP central office building was allegedly being built on an ‘illegally occupied’ land, according to the reports.

YSRCP has blamed ruling Telugu Desam Party (TDP) of vendetta politics and alleged that the demolition was ordered even when the high “court halted any such activity.”

In a statement, YSRCP said, “The under construction YSRCP party’s central office in Tadepalli was demolished despite High Court order. This unprecedented action, the first instance of a party office being demolished in the state’s history, commenced around 5:30 am using excavators and bulldozers.”

The YSRCP had earlier approached High Court and filed a writ petition, requesting an order against any action against their central office building in Tadepalli until the hearing is completed.

“TDP is doing vendetta politics. The demolition proceeded even though the YSRCP had approached the High Court the previous day, challenging the preliminary actions of the AP CRDA (Andhra Pradesh Capital Region Development Authority). The court had ordered a halt to any demolition activity," it further said.

The party added that the demolished structure was “prepared for a slab before being razed. The CRDA’S defiance of the High Court’s directive may now draw further legal scrutiny.”

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu had earlier alleged that the previous YSRCP government led by YS Jagan Mohan Reddy left the mega irrigation project in a state of complexity and disarray after governing the state for five years, a charge rejected by the previous ruling government.

Addressing Chandrababu Naidu's charge at the previous YSRCP government, former Irrigation Minister A Rambabu said, “Whatever Chandrababu Naidu is telling about the Polavaram project are lies and false. Without remembering his mistakes, he [Chandrababu] is indulging in mudslinging against Jagan Mohan Reddy.”
