Don't write open letters, DGP tells Naidu

Don't write open letters, DGP tells Naidu

Andhra Pradesh DGP Gautam Sawang has given a piece of advice to TDP president and former CM N Chandrababu Naidu: “Don’t write open letters that would demoralise the police.”

In a letter to Naidu on Tuesday, the DGP found fault with Naidu for writing a letter to him making false allegations based on the unverified information being spread through social media. He asked the TDP chief to refrain from doing so in future.

Sawang asked Naidu not to write such open letters but advised him to write to him in a sealed cover hereafter as his letters may contain 'unverified' information which could raise 'unnecessary' suspicion in the minds of the citizens.

He alleged that the Naidu was trying to mislead the people by writing such letters without verifying the factual information. 

“It is unfortunate that such allegations are levelled without verifying the facts and further going on to generalise and attribute the same to 'deteriorating law and order situation' in the state,” the DGP said.

The DGP refuted Naidu’s allegations on 'attack' on the brother of a suspended judge in Chittoor stating that it was 'sponsored' and 'orchestrated' by the ruling YSRCP. 

“The investigation has proved that the victim suffered minor injuries due to a physical scuffle that he entered into, in a drunken state with the accused. Therefore, your allegation is far from truth,” he said.

He also pointed out that the investigation had revealed that the accused (Prathap Reddy) was in fact a 'staunch TDP supporter'.

Sawang told the TDP chief to present the evidence, if there is any, proving the involvement of the YSRC. 

“Should you hold any evidence or reason for suspicion about the involvement of any individual, you may write to me in a sealed cover and help the police,” the DGP said.
