A political row erupted in Andhra Pradesh after the under-construction central office of the Jagan Mohan Reddy-led YSR Congress Party in Tadepalli was demolished by municipal authorities early on Saturday due to alleged illegal construction.

The demolition, which was carried out by the Mangalagiri-Tadepalli Municipal Corporation (MTMC) using excavators and bulldozers, began after a notice from the Capital Region Development Authority (CRDA) citing unauthorised construction to be the reason behind the action.

The demolition continued even though the YSRCP, which is now in the opposition, sought legal intervention, claiming that the High Court had ordered a halt to any demolition activity.

However, the CRDA and MTMC officials stated that the YSRCP office was being built on land owned by the irrigation department and that construction had proceeded without the necessary approvals.

Visuals, which went viral on social media, show bulldozers razing the partially built structure till the entire premises are demolished.

Objecting to the action, former Andhra CM and YSRCP Chief Jagan Mohan Reddy condemned the demolition as a political vendetta orchestrated by Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu, who Reddy addressed as a “dictator.”

“In Andhra Pradesh, Chandrababu took his Damanakanda to a new level. A dictator bulldozed the nearly completed YSRCP central office at Tadepalli. The orders of the High Court were ignored. Law and justice have completely disappeared in the state,” Reddy wrote on X.

ఆంధ్రప్రదేశ్‌లో రాజకీయ కక్షసాధింపు చర్యలకు దిగిన చంద్రబాబు తన దమనకాండను మరోస్థాయికి తీసుకెళ్లారు. ఒక నియంతలా తాడేపల్లిలో దాదాపు పూర్తికావొచ్చిన @YSRCParty కేంద్ర కార్యాలయాన్ని బుల్డోజర్లతో కూల్చివేయించారు. హైకోర్టు ఆదేశాలనూ బేఖాతరు చేశారు. రాష్ట్రంలో చట్టం, న్యాయం పూర్తిగా…— YS Jagan Mohan Reddy (@ysjagan) June 22, 2024

“Chandrababu, who is shedding blood due to the violent incidents that are taking place after the elections, has given a violent message about how the regime is going to be for these five years through this incident. These threats, these acts of violence YSRCP have no bow, no turning back. We will fight hard on behalf of the people, for the people and with the people,” he added.
