Hitting out at CM YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, the TDP leader asked, “The father who moved the dead body of his son Shriram on the bike in a miserable condition where no one could help. Where did all the vehicles you hoisted the flag with the publicity madness go, Jagan Reddy?”
The father of 8-year-old Sriram, who died, had to transport the body by his bike to their residence. He requested an ambulance to aid in shifting the corpse of his son to their residence.
But, the ambulance drivers declined, mentioning there were issues with the rules and regulations. Auto-rickshaws also refused to carry the body. When the family tried arranging private transport, they also refused.
With no option left, the father carried his son’s corpse on their 2-wheeler to reach their house.
