Vizag: Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu on Friday dismissed the Vizag airport incident of attack on YS Jaganmohan Reddy as a "drama" enacted by the opposition.

Seizing the opportunity to get even with the BJP, Naidu said he had never witnessed such "vendetta" in his 40 years of career in politics.

The visibly agitated Naidu slammed governor ESL Narasimhan for 'circumventing' him to call the director general of police (DGP) to seek a report on the incident. “I am the administrator, why didn’t he call me? I am a senior leader. Through this, I also want to create a discussion on the role of a Governor in the country. I have seen many Governors in my career. What he did was wrong,” Naidu said.

Addressing the press on Thursday in the evening, Naidu accused the Centre of threatening the TDP government. He said that the entire "drama" (of attack on Jagan) was scripted by the Narendra Modi government to create a law-and-order situation in the state.

Forewarning the BJP against using the CBI, Enforcement Directorate and other law enforcement agencies, the chief minister said that all their actions would hit them back.

Naidu said that the YSRCP had created a ruckus for 30 minutes by blocking the roads and vandalising properties following the Vizag airport incident while he was in a meeting with district collectors.

Replying to GVL Narasimha Rao’s remark, where the BJP spokesman referred to the TDP workers as "mafia" that was behind the attack, Naidu warned Rao against making any false accusation.

After interrogating the attacker, Srinivasa Rao, at the airport, the police got to know that he was a supporter of YS Jaganmohan Reddy. The police claim that Rao attacked Jagan "for publicity”.
