GVL's Next Target Is Jagan?

GVL's Next Target Is Jagan?

When Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu was the chief minister of Andhra Pradesh till recently, Bharatiya Janata Party national spokesman and Rajya Sabha member G V L Narasimha Rao used to attack him with strong words day in and day out.

After Naidu faced a humiliating defeat in the hands of YSR Congress party president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy, GVL went silent except on the day of results when he said Naidu had paid penalty for his misrule.

Now that he is habituated to making sharp criticism against others, GVL seems to have set Jagan as his next target. It appears he is closely watching the new chief minister’s moves and looking for an opportunity to attack.

On Tuesday, GVL made some critical comments against Jagan for hosting Iftar for Muslims at Guntur on Monday.

He said being the chief minister of a secular state, it was not appropriate for Jagan to host Iftar party for Muslims at the expense of public money.

He was reacting to some reports that the government had spent Rs 1.1 crore on the Iftar party at Guntur.

“It is not correct on the part of Jagan to spend so much public money on religious events. Andhra Pradesh has already been facing huge revenue loss. And the previous chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu had wasted crores of rupees of public money on his “luxurious” agitations and pushed the state into a deep financial crisis,” he pointed out.

“It is not proper to host religious festivals with public expenses in a secular government. I hope the new chief minister Jagan will not give scope for such unhealthy practices in future,” GVL commented on twitter.

Well, he has not made a comment on Jagan flying to Visakhapatnam in a special flight to take the blessings of Swamy Swaroopanandendra of Visakha Sarada Peetham.

Was it not at public expense, Mr GVL?
