Jagan Pampers Modi As BJP Steps Up Attack!

Jagan Pampers Modi As BJP Steps Up Attack!

Even as YSR Congress party president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy is not losing any opportunity to pamper Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the state Bharatiya Janata Party leaders have started attacking the state government in harsh tone.

Jagan was among the first non-BJP chief ministers to lavish praise on Modi, soon after the latter made an announcement declaring that the Centre would take up the vaccination programme and the states won’t have to spend a single rupee on it. 

“Sincere thanks to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for clearing uncertainty and making vaccination a national agenda,” Jagan said in a tweet.

In his recent letters to the Prime Minister, too, he has been using a submissive language and praising Modi for his “able leadership.”

On Tuesday, too, Jagan wrote a yet another letter to Modi, requesting that the Centre extend financial assistance to the state for providing infrastructure to the greenfield housing colonies.

He pointed out that the state government had acquired 68,381 acres of land and allotted house sites to 30.76 lakhs beneficiaries spread across 17,005 greenfield colonies at an estimated cost of Rs 23,535 crore.

Stating that his government was constructing houses in these colonies, Jagan requested that the Centre extend financial assistance to the tune of Rs 34,109 crore for development of basic infrastructure facilities in these colonies.

Despite his friendly approach towards the Centre in general and Prime Minister Narendra Modi in particular, the BJP leaders in the state have been attacking him in strong terms, though they had remained silent for a few weeks after the debacle of the BJP in the by-polls to Tirupati parliamentary seat.

On Tuesday, BJP state vice-president P Vishnu Kumar Raju lashed out at the Jagan government for its “demonic rule” and called upon the people to wake up and fight against the government.

Describing Jagan as a “strange chief minister” and a great dictator, Raju said the government was spending the entire revenue on vote-catching programmes, rather than on development.

He alleged that the government was resorting to witch-hunt politics and going on demolition spree only with political vengeance.
