Insights From Y S Jagan-Modi Meeting

It is known that Andhra Pradesh chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy went to Delhi and met with the BJP top brass. 

The meeting caught everybody's attention as Jagan Mohan Reddy was called to meet just a day after Chandrababu Naidu's meeting with Amit Shah.

According to reliable insiders, initially, Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy and Muralidhara Rao met with Amit Shah and Narendra Modi, exchanging greetings. After about ten minutes of informal conversation, Muralidhara Rao left, leaving the remaining three to continue their discussion. After another ten minutes, Amit Shah also departed, leaving Narendra Modi and YS Jagan Mohan Reddy to converse privately for 45 minutes.

Obviously, the content of the discussion between the two remains unknown. 

However, a widely believed speculation is about a post-poll alliance between the BJP and YCP to counter the Congress' claims that the BJP has no presence in South India except in Telangana and Karnataka. To prevent the rise of Congress in other South Indian states, BJP is reportedly considering strategic post-poll alliances, according to insiders.

Another insider's speculation suggests that the privatization of Vizag Steel Plant is being reconsidered, and about Rs 6000 crore of pending funds owed to the state of Andhra Pradesh are promised to be released immediately.

Besides, regarding Chandrababu's meeting with Amit Shah, it is believed that he went there to discuss one of his cases, which either needed to be closed before March 31st or face court proceedings thereafter.

In both of the above cases, pictures of Jagan Mohan Reddy's Delhi meeting were released to the media, but Chandrababu's pictures were completely kept under wraps for unknown reasons. Apart from Andhra Jyothy publishing something in its daily, no concrete information is available about what actually transpired between Chandrababu and Amit Shah.

On the other hand, there have been indications from Pawan Kalyan's side for the past few days that he would be going to Delhi in a day or two. However, it looks, so far he has not received an appointment and therefore has not gone yet.
