YS Jagan escaped murder attempt on him with minor injuries. A youth named Srinivas Rao attacked Jagan with knIfe at Vizag airport pretending to take selfies with him. YSRCP leader was stabbed in his arm and left bleeding. Police arrested the culprit and have been investigating.
Several politupolit including Janasena chief Pawan Kalyan condemned the attack. However, ruling TDP party leaders tried to poetry it as Jagan’s coupe to gain sympathy. Former Rajya sabha MP and senior NTRs close aide Dr Mohan Babu slammed rivals.
“Jagan has been on Praja Sankalpam Yatra walking 12 districts into common people. There hasn’t been any attack on him and he never faced any threat. How could a person surpass airport security to carry a knife with which he attacked Jagan,” asked Mohan Babu.
