Rebuked By Chandrababu Naidu, TDP Lawmaker And Legislator Apologise To IPS Officer

After meeting Mr Naidu, the TDP lawmaker and legislator apologized to the IPS officer.


Amaravati:  A day after assaulting an IPS officer and his security person, TDP lawmaker Kesineni Srinivas and legislator Bonda Umamaheswara Rao apologised following a rebuke from Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu.

"The chief minister summoned the lawmaker and the legislator, besides other TDP leaders who were witness to the incident, to his residence this afternoon and reportedly gave them an 'earful' for tarnishing the image of the government and the party," the party sources said.

Soon after meeting Mr Naidu, the lawmaker and the legislator drove straight to the transport commissioner's office and apologised. "It was an unfortunate incident and we express our regret if we hurt anybody's sentiments," they told reporters.

The IPS officer too said that the lawmaker and the legislator "realised the mistakes in their behavior yesterday" and "apologised."

Last evening, the lawmaker and the legislator allegedly abused Transport Commissioner N Balasubrahmanyam, an IPS officer, and Deputy Transport Commissioner Meera Prasad at the Regional Transport Authority office in Vijayawada over a report of a bus accident case submitted by the department to the police.

The legislator, who allegedly tried to charge towards Mr Balasubrahmanyam in a fit of rage, shoved the security person as he tried to protect the officer.

Vijayawada lawmaker Kesineni Srinivas is a top private bus operator in the state.

At the time of the incident, the lawmaker was accompanied by legislators Buddha Venkateswara Rao and Bonda Uma, city mayor Koneru Sridhar, AP police housing corporation chairman SK Nagulmeera and several others.  The IPS officer's deputy reportedly requested the TDP leaders not to create a scene.

Later, the TDP leaders went to Vijayawada Police Commissioner Gautam Sawang, asking for intervention in the matter.

When the Chief Minister heard about the incident, the legislator and lawmaker were immediately asked to appear. State chief secretary Ajeya Kallam and director general of police (in charge) N Sambasiva Rao also spoke to Mr Balasubrahmanyam about the incident.
