Andhra Pradesh CM Y.S. Ja­gan­mo­han Reddy re­cently had party MLA K. Srid­har Reddy ar­rested for ha­rass­ing A. Sar­ala, a Venkat­acha­lam Man­dal Par­ishad De­vel­op­ment of­fi­cer. Af­ter Sar­ala re­fused to grant a wa­ter connection to a project be­ing de­vel­oped by an associate of the MLA, the elec­tric­ity and wa­ter con­nec­tions to her home were cut off. The po­lice had been slow to act on her com­plaint till the CM stepped in, his mes­sage to the YSR Congress party loud and clear—par­ty­men are not above the law.
