TDP General Secretary Nara Lokesh was arrested at Gannavaram Airport. Lokesh was trying to go to Narasaraopeta to meet the family of Anusha who was killed in broad daylight by a Love Maniac. This is the second arrest of Lokesh in the last few weeks. The earlier arrest was also for a similar reason.
The Government has imposed Section 144 in Narasaraopeta and has made preventive arrests and house arrests of TDP leaders of Krishna and Guntur districts to foil this tour. What can not be understood is why the Government is making a big deal of a simple issue.
Opposition reaching to the families in such instances is quite common. Jagan did the same when he is in Opposition. Such visits do not even get wide coverage in the media because they are so regular in politics. But then, the Government is making a big issue by arrests and the issue is all over the media now.
This will send a message to the people that Government is trying to cover up something in this issue. Except for maybe not so proactiveness in the case, there is no Government involvement in this issue. But this over-enthusiasm is sending wrong feelers.
Moreover, it will also highlight Nara Lokesh as the one fighting against the Government. Directly or Indirectly Jagan is just helping Lokesh who has been trying to correct his image. Even with 100s of Advisors already, it looks like no one is giving the right one to Jagan.
