Hyderabad, Feb 12 : Taking strong objection to the attack on the Sakshi office at Guntur, YSR Congress Party today alleged that the vandalism was provoked by TDP President N Chandrababu Naidu and demanded stern action against him.

"The attack was the result of a pent up anger of the mob and the trigger was the provocative speeches for five days by Mr Chandrababu Naidu who was on padayatra in Guntur district.

Being an abettor of vandalism, action should be taken against him and a case sheet should be opened against the TDP leader," party spokesperson Ambati Rambabu told reporters here.

The attack taking place while his padayatra was passing through the Sakshi office speaks of the intensity of the his provocative speeches and the freedom of press has been scuttled for narrow political gains, he said adding that Mr Naidu was not condemning the incident stands a testimony for his supportive argument to the vandalism.

"We strongly condemn the incident and demand that the government take stern action against him for abetting organised vandalism," he said.

For a person with over 35 years in public life, such heinous acts only belittle his position as Mr Naidu is playing street fight politics, Mr Rambabu said.
