BY THE BOOK
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.
