Roja arrest raises questions


Vijayawada police have arrested YSRCP MLA Roja on Saturday morning, while she was on her way to participate in the National Women Parliament in Amaravati in Andhra Pradesh.

Roja flew from Hyderabad to Vijayawada on Saturday morning. But she was arrested as soon as she landed at Gannavaram airport. Police have silently arrested her, without even informing media.

Though Roja’s fight with AP CM Chandrababu Naidu and TDP leaders is well known, arresting her, while she was on her way to participate in women’s parliament is raising many questions over government’s intentions.

YSRCP leaders protested against arresting Roja and met AP DGP Sambasiva Rao. When asked DGP said that they arrested Roja, as they had sure evidence that she would create mischief at National Women’s Parliament.

But this argument of DGP and AP government is not going down well with many, as they find arresting a woman legislator while women parliamentarians meeting is going on will send bad signals about state government.
