Why and How Jagan Failed in Council?

Why and How Jagan Failed in Council?

The Jagan Mohan Reddy government, with a whopping majority of 151 MLAs in the Lower House (Assembly) of 175, had failed to get its bills passed in the Upper House (Legislative Council).

In political terms or in administrative terms or management terms, the failure is a clear indication of the leader who is heading the government.

It is very clear that Jagan Mohan Reddy has no majority in the Legislative Council.

Out of the 58 members in the House, the TDP has 27 members in addition to the Chairman and vice-chairman. The YSR Congress has just 9 members. The rest are nominated or belonged to the BJP or the Left oriented group. 

Even if all these members abstain from voting in favour of the ruling party, there is a clear majority for the TDP against the ruling YSR Congress.

Assuming that the ruling party could manage some members (MLCs) to abstain from voting, it would not be more than a handful.

The result is that the ruling party’s bills (on capital) would get defeated by the TDP, which is leaving no stone unturned, to oppose the bills that weaken Amaravati.

Knowing that the bills would get defeated or get into the delayed political strategy of the TDP, the ruling party did not look for alternatives, either legally or politically.

TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu is a strategist and will stoop down to any level to see his word or his decision prevailed.

Everyone knew Chandrababu Naidu’s strategies and his capabilities on this sector. Jagan Mohan Reddy is a total contrast to Chandrababu Naidu’s character. We may not expect Jagan Mohan Reddy to stoop down to win. But, the fact is the rival. 

When the rival is capable of doing anything, can shout on the top of the voice or shed tears or plead with folded hands or sit on the floor or anything else, the opponent should be able to handle the character, if not do the same.

Success of a leader depends on how leads his team and how he faces his rival.

When the rival is chameleon, the leader should know how to face. When the rival is a tiger, the leader should know how to hunt it and not just to be its prey. Knowing fully well that Naidu can be a chameleon or a tiger, Jagan Mohan Reddy simply became the prey.

Jagan Mohan Reddy wanted to be honest politician in front of a most dishonest and opportunist politician. Things would not work this way.

He did not even have his legal team ready to bail him out in that crucial period. He did not have his constitutional experts by his side. He did not have his political strategists at his disposal, who could match the political strategies of Chandrababu Naidu.

Jagan Mohan Reddy tried fishing in a crocodile pond. He should learn hunting crocodiles first or go for a new pond. Here Jaganmohan Reddy cannot go for a new pond as this pond is his home state.

What he should learn is that he should handle the crocodile first and then think of fishing. His team too should learn to be with him.

If the king sleeps after victory, it is acceptable. But, what if the soldiers sleep? All the soldiers are sleeping or relaxing, while the king is still fighting. The king should wake up his men, tell them they are still in the middle of the battle and the strong enemy is still alive!
