Hyderabad, Sep 15 After the Andhra Pradesh High Court on Monday pulled up state Director General of Police Damodar Gautam Sawang saying "resign if rule of law cannot be implemented" in the state, Telugu Desam Party (TDP) alleged that 'Jungle Raj' is prevailing under Jagan Reddy regime and the court's remark applies to the chief minister as well. Attacking CM Jagan Mohan Reddy, the opposition said, "CM Jagan Reddy cannot abdicate his responsibility for the law and order, Jungle Raj is prevailing under his regime." TDP Politburo Member Varla Ramaiah on Tuesday demanded YS Reddy to break his silence on the Andhra Pradesh High Court's latest remarks, suggesting state DGP Gautam Sawang to resign if he was unable to implement the rule of law in the state. Ramaiah said the high court's comments apply to the chief minister also and the "lawlessness" with which his government was running a 'Jungle Raj' ever since coming to power in the state. "Though the HC commented about 'Khakhistocracy' in the state recently, neither the DGP nor the government made any attempts to mend their ways. YSRCP government was not responding even after the high court had asked the DGP to resign if he was not able to control the erratic police force in the face of the deteriorating law and order," the TDP leader said. Varla Ramaiah said his party has long been complaining to the DGP about unchecked atrocities and injustices being committed all over the state but he had not responded with the seriousness it deserves.
