Naidu meets Governor, seeks CBI probe in Kodela's death


TDP Chief Chandrababu Naidu met Andhra Pradesh Governor Biswabhusan Harichandan demanding a CBI probe into the death of former Andhra Pradesh assembly speaker Kodla Sivaprasad Rao. 

Kodela, who served as the assembly speaker from 2014-2019 committed suicide at his Hyderabad residence earlier this week. The death of Kodela started a massive political row between the ruling YSRCP and TDP with each side blaming others for the ex-speaker's death. 

The TDP circles are calling Kodela's death as a 'political murder' claiming that it was harassment from the ruling party that led to Kodela taking this step. The YSRCP, on the other hand, is of the opinion that TDP is unnecessarily politicising the issue and that it was TDPs's alienation of Kodela coupled with his cases that led him to take this extreme step.

"Someone (Siva Prasada Rao) called ‘Palnadu Tiger’ was afraid. Someone who was a speaker, dying like this is bad. Petty cases were also filed on him, apart from other cases filed over the shifting of furniture. We demand CBI inquiry on circumstances that compelled Kodela to suicide, said Naidu speaking to the media

"We will go to any extent for justice. YSRCP government is acting in a vindictive manner against opposition parties. Kodela was harassed with false cases under serious charges which caused him mental agony," he further added.
