Amaravati: Chandrababu Naidu’s Opposition Telugu Desam Party in Andhra Pradesh has gone vehemently against YSRCP’s move to paint the graveyards across the state in colours of the party flag, reported News18.

TDP MP from Vijayawada, Kesineni Srinivas took on the Jagan Govt over the issue saying, “Won’t you spare even graveyards? How can you paint your party colours to public graveyards? The graveyard walls, arch and rooms have also been painted. Won't you leave any structure?”

Earlier, the Jagan govt has issued orders to paint the village secretariats, which will be established by October 2, in the YSR Congress Party colours.

After winning the mandate in the state, newly elected CM Jagan Mohan Reddy had closed “Anna Canteens” established during the previous Naidu regime. Prior to that, in some areas the YSRCP leaders have changed the colour of the Anna Canteen from yellow to white. Yellow is the colour of the Telugu Desam Party's flag and the move to repaint the canteens drew harsh criticism from TDP.
