Vijayawada: Greeting the people of Andhra Pradesh on the occasion of Constitution Day, former Chief Minister and TDP national president Nara Chandrababu Naidu, in an open letter to the public on Saturday, exhorted the people to unite and protect the constitutional values which he said are not being honoured now. Otherwise, the future of the state will be in danger, he added.

"Ours is a Constitution framed with the lofty goals of providing freedom and equality to all. On the occasion of Constitution Day, let us resolve to fulfill the ambitions of the framers of the Constitution who gave us the highest Constitution in the world," wrote the TDP chief.

He said he was writing the open letter to the people to protect the rights provided by the Constitution in the face of the pathetic situation in the state. "No matter how good the Constitution is, if the ruler who implements it does not stand up to the people's expectations, it will produce bad results. No matter how bad the Constitution is, if the ruler who implements it is good, it will yield the best results," said Mr. Naidu quoting Dr. BR Ambedkar.




Dr. Ambedkar might have predicted on that day about leaders like Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy, the TDP supremo said, adding that today Andhra Pradesh is ruled against the spirit of the Constitution. Mr. Jagan Reddy is ruling with dictatorial tendencies in a democratic country and now total anarchy is prevailing in the state, he added.

People and political parties are being harassed as false cases are being filed against those who speak against the ruling party, Mr. Naidu said, adding that political parties do not even have the right to protest on public issues. Opposition parties are deprived of their right to protest against the corruption of ruling party leaders, he stated.

Expressing serious concern, Mr. Naidu said the values of the Constitution are left to the wind and some corrupt officials are taking the law into their own hands. They have forgotten that they are accountable to the people, he added.

Even the legal system is not an exception to the ruling party leaders as they are levelling allegations even against the judiciary. The over 330 verdicts by courts against the government in 42 months is a reflection of the state's anti-people governance, Mr. Naidu observed.

Never in the history of the state have several officials, including the chief secretary and the DGP, had to appear before the court, Mr. Naidu stated and expressed concern that this kind of situation is very dangerous for the future of the state.

"On the occasion of Constitution Day, we are calling upon the people to join hands to protect the Constitution and the rights of the people," Mr. Naidu concluded.
