Jagan's actions show his commitment towards AP!

Its just two weeks since YS Jagan Mohan Reddy took over as the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh.

But within such a short span of time, Jagan with his actions proved that for him the interests of AP matter the most and nothing else.

A quick glance of the functioning of Jagan as CM shows his sincerity and commitment towards AP.

In his first address at the Niti Aayog meeting in Delhi convened by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday, Jagan attracted the attention of all CMs of states, besides PM Modi and union ministers Amit Shah and Rajnath Singh.

Jagan came well prepared to the meeting to present his case effectively before PM and CMs of all states to prove his point how severe injustice was meted out to Andhra Pradesh with the 'hasty bifurcation' of state and how AP deserves 'special category status' more than any other state does.

Jagan not only presented his arguments effectively in the meeting, he brought printed booklets on the current plight of AP due to bifurcation, which were distributed to PM, union ministers, CMs of all states and senior officials of Niti Aayog department.

The Centre, which along has been opposing to grant special category status for the past five years, appeared convinced with Jagan's arguments and assured to look into the issue.

Earlier, the Centre used to rule out holding any debate on SCS to AP in its meetings.

But, Jagan made everyone present in the meeting to introspect themselves and review their opinion on according SCS to AP.

The argument which captured the attention of all was Jagan talking about Hyderabad.

Jagan said after AP lost Hyderabad to Telangana, software went to Telangana and AP is just left with 'saagu' (agriculture cultivation) and questioned them how can AP prosper just with agriculture and without IT and industries.

Despite knowing very well in advance that, BJP and Modi are against granting SCS to any state, Jagan did not shy away from putting forth his argument demanding SCS for AP.

If Jagan had selfish interests, he could have avoided speaking about SCS in front of Modi to please him.

But Jagan did not went back and raised the issues, which normally angers Modi.

This proves beyond doubt that Jagan is more concerned about the interests of AP than his personal or political gains.
