Lokesh: 3 IPS officers acting like YCP activists

Better to wear Tadepalli ‘blue dress’ than khaki
DGP hand in glove with ruling party leaders
Why no action taken against APSSC Subba Reddy?
CM should stop putting price on atrocities victims
AMARAVATI: TDP National General Secretary and MLC Nara Lokesh termed it as a ‘black day’ for the Indian democracy as three IPS officers had stooped to the level of behaving like the ruling YSRCP activists though they were taking their salary from the public money.
Mr. Lokesh said that these AP IPS officers had brought down the prestige and glory of the police service and totally brought disrespect to their uniform. If they were not interested in upholding the respect of the institution, they should better wear ‘blue uniforms’ and go to work at Tadepalli.
In a statement here, Mr. Nara Lokesh asked how the IPS officers could feign ignorance when YSRCP MLA Jogi Ramesh had made a prior warning before coming to attack the residence of former Chief Minister N. Chandrababu. The DGP should clarify whether the TDP leaders, who came to his office to complain, had launched an attack on the police there. Jogi Ramesh came with goondas and attacked the TDP chief’s house after making an advance threat.
Mr. Lokesh said that the senior IPS officers’ behaviour was a black spot for the police service. They caused severe disrespect by supporting MLA Jogi Ramesh who came in a drunken condition along with goons during the attack on Mr. Naidu’s house. Such acts would only make the people lose total confidence and trust in the police. It was not safe for the State to take a lenient view of the Leader of Opposition in the Assembly, who was a Z plus security NSG protectee with fourteen years service as a former Chief Minister.
Mr. Lokesh asked whether the Chief Minister and his Government had given licence to his community men to commit murders and rapes with impunity. Now, the women employees had complained to the authorities concerned about the sexual harassment from APSSC Board additional director Subba Reddy. They had complained to the police and the women’s commission as well. There was no action till now.
Mr. Nara Lokesh called it ‘unpardonable’ that the Government failed to come to the rescue of the women employees even though they had come out on the road to voice their grievance. The Chief Minister should explain why no action was being taken against Subba Reddy. The CM would have to pay a heavy penalty if he went ahead with his attitude of putting Rs. 10 lakh price on each deceased victim of rapes and atrocities.
