YSR Congress Party leader Y S Sharmila today filed a police complaint against websites and sections of the social media which she claimed were spreading rumours against her family members, her party and her.
Accompanied by her husband Anil Kumar, and party leaders Y V Subba Reddy, Vasireddy Padma and Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy, Sharmila filed a complaint with Hyderabad Police Commissioner Anjani Kumar, IPS.
Speaking to the media later, Sharmila spoke about the false propaganda against her involving her and film actor Prabhas, and claimed that it was the Telugu Desam Party which was behind it.
She said that TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu was orchestrating everything, and that the cheap tactics showed his true nature.
"All this is being done just before the general elections in Andhra Pradesh. It shows how insecure the TDP president is and also how low his values and morals are," she said.
Sharmila firmly said that she didn't even know who he (Prabhas) was. She had never met the man and had absolutely no connections with him, she claimed. Yet the ruling party leaders continued to tarnish her image with the false rumours which they started several years back.
"I am a daughter, a mother, a sister and a woman with high morals. The TDP has a habit of propagating false news till it becomes the truth and they are doing the same with me," Sharmila said.
She also said the TDP was constantly propagating false information on the social media even about her brother Y S Jaganmohan Reddy, that he was an egoistic and arrogant person. If that was the case, how could his Praja Sankalpa Yatra be so successful and how could people get so close to him and share their problems with him, she asked.
She requested the police to block the websites and arrest those involved in spreading degrading rumours against her and put an end to this kind of heinous propaganda once and for all.
Sharmila also said that she had named some TDP leaders in her petition as the ones indulging in propagating the rumours.
