This decision seems to target the opposition YSRCP party. Recently, Andhra Pradesh government demolished YS Rajashekar Reddy's statue which was located near Pandit Nehru Bus stand in Vijayawada. This was done as a part of road widening process for upcoming Krishna Pushkaralu. The department also demolished the temple and levelled the road. Babu promised to build the temple again.
YSR statue demolition is troubling the ruling party. The department might have shifted the statue with the consent of YSRCP leaders. The statue had been demolished without any prior intimation.This activity was done over night. This activity might hurt the sentiments of some people. What would happen if YSRCP or some other party come to power and remove all NTR statues all over state? -as asked by a citizen. In the politics, every step should be taken after thinking twice. The government's decision should not hurt the sentiments of the common citizens.This might hurt political spirit in the future.
