Vijayawada :Former Andhra Pradesh Director General of Police (DGP) V Dinesh Reddy criticized TDP’s chief Nara Chandrababu Naidu for targeting the current DGP D Gowtham Sawang over the phone tapping issue.
It may be recalled that Naidu had expressed surprise over how the AP Director General of Police Gowtham Sawang could ask for proof on the allegations of phone tapping to monitor movements of Opposition, advocates, journalists and social activists in the State.
Earlier, DGP Sawang had written to Naidu urging him to give evidence on the phone tapping matter. “I reiterate that we stand committed to protect the Constitutional and legal rights of citizens and persons guaranteed under the constitution of India and other statutory laws, including the Right of Privacy,” Sawang said.
Supporting Sawang, former DGP Dinesh Reddy twitted: “I’m amazed to note as to why CBN Garu is finding fault with DG Sawang when he asked him to give evidence to the serious allegation he raised regards to phone tapping”.

Dinesh Reddy’s tweet evoked a huge response from the netizens who criticized Naidu for his “cheap politics”.
Satyanarayana tweeted that there is a need to retire from politics after 60 years on the lines of government employees. “Otherwise people have to bear such things from the political leaders,” he said.
Another netizen Rajesh said how can Niadu produce the evidence when he doesn’t have one. “Naidu wrote the letter to Prime Minister just for fun,” he said.
“There was a proverb in Telugu, Gummadi Kayya Donga and Shoulders Rubbing. Naidu wants to be in news always with funny comments and divert other issues. He is becoming KA Paul-2,” tweeted another netizen.
