Why this sudden love for dad-son on CBI?

Why this sudden love for dad-son on CBI?

No doubt, it is a big tragedy that a senior politician like former Andhra Pradesh legislative assembly speaker Kodela Sivaprasada Rao committed suicide by hanging himself to death at his Hyderabad residence.

The Telangana police have taken up investigation by constituting three special teams, who are looking into all angles of the causes that promoted the senior Telugu Desam Party leader to take to the extreme step.

Some people might even agree with TDP president and former chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu to make allegations against the YSR Congress party leadership saying Kodela had committed suicide due to harassment by the Jagan Mohan Reddy government in the form of cases and theft allegations.

In politics, one can expect leaders to make such comments in a fit of anguish and also to gain political mileage of such incidents.

The YSRC also chose to shot back at the TDP and its president for making such wild allegations and wanted the Telangana government to conduct an investigation into Kodela’s death.

But what surprised everybody is that Naidu has demanded a probe by Central Bureau of Investigation into the death of Kodela.

First of all, it is not a murder but a suicide as was clearly revealed in the post-mortem. The cases filed against Kodela and his family members are pending in the court. So, what can CBI do in this case?

Secondly, the TDP chief has no moral right to demand a CBI probe, because he himself had banned entry of the CBI and other central investigation agencies from entering AP when he was the chief minister.

He openly said several times that the CBI had lost its credibility and was full of scamsters, working under directions from Narendra Modi.

Similarly, Naidu’s son and TDP general secretary Nara Lokesh also demanded a CBI probe into the murder of former MP and Jagan’s uncle Y S Vivekananda Reddy. Lokesh was also critical of CBI in the past.

So, why are they demanding the CBI probe now into Kodela’s death? It clearly shows how Naidu can take U-turns even on his own words!
