3 Dead At Chandrababu Naidu Event, Second Stampede In Less Than A Week

Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy blamed Chandrababu Naidu for the death.

Three people were killed in a stampede at a rally of former chief minister Chandrababu Naidu in Andhra Pradesh’s Guntur district. This is the second occasion in four days that people have lost their lives at the program of Mr. Naidu, who is holding a series of political rallies across the state in preparation for the 2024 assembly elections in the state.

Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has expressed grief over the stampede in Guntur. Officials have been directed to provide all possible medical assistance to the injured. Mr. Reddy assured the families of government assistance.

On Wednesday, eight people – among them a woman – died in a near-tramp in Andhra Pradesh’s Nellore district during a road show by the former chief minister. At Kandukure, several people fell into an open canal as locals waited for a glimpse of Mr. Naidu, who was coming there for a roadshow.

Mr. Naidu immediately canceled the meeting and announced a compensation of Rs 24 lakh to the families who lost their loved ones.

“It’s a sad incident. I’m very sorry about it,” he said. “We will provide financial assistance, treatment of the injured and education of the children,” he added.

He, however, came down heavily on the ruling YSR Congress, calling it a “fake campaign”.

Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy blamed the Telugu Desam Party chief for the death, saying his “publicity frenzy” led to the tragedy and demanded an immediate and public apology.

Mr Reddy’s party is under pressure as Mr Naidu has stepped up its rallies and political meetings. The huge turnout at his programs is seen as an indication of the resurgence of the TDP, which faced a crushing defeat to the YSR Congress in 2019.

Mr Naidu said the 2024 elections would be his last if people did not bring his party back to power.

Mr Naidu’s son, Nara Lokesh, will soon launch a padayatra which is expected to be a youth platform. The 400-day march, which will cover more than 4,000 km, will begin on January 27.
