Guntur (Andhra Pradesh), [India], Mar 6 (ANI): A delegation of Telugu Desam Party (TDP) leaders on Wednesday met Guntur Superintendent of Police (SP) over IT raids in Hyderabad on a firm that developed TDP's Sevamitra app amid allegations of data theft.

"Rival political parties taking the aid and assistance of the Telangana Police which is misusing its official position to facilitate the illegal and clandestine activity of YSRCP for their political prospects" read the letter submitted by the TDP delegation.

"This is a case of conspiracy hatched between the YSRCP leaders, followers and some senior officials of the Telangana government with the object of stealing data belonging to the Telugu Desam Party which has been collected and accumulated over a period of two decades, thereby cripple the party activities and also to intimidate the cadre with an ultimate aim of furthering the political prospects of YSRCP," the TDP claimed.
Earlier in the day, a delegation of the YSR Congress Party led by YS Jaganmohan Reddy met Andhra Pradesh Governor ESL Narasimhan and demanded an inquiry in the data theft case.

The delegation said to the Governor that if Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu is involved in the matter, action should be initiated against him.

“A private firm IT Grids is having all the data of the Andhra Pradesh people. How can they have access to the data without the help of the government? They are using this data to identify TDP voters and others. We have asked the Governor to conduct an inquiry into the matter. If the Chief Minister is found guilty, then action should be initiated against him,” Reddy said.
Jagan Reddy was joined by Uma Reddy, Subhash Chandra Bose, Partha Sarathi and Rajanna Dora. (ANI)
