Will Jagan Settle Kakani-Kotamreddy Dispute?

Will Jagan Settle Kakani-Kotamreddy Dispute?

The internal squabbles between two MLAs of the ruling party have caused some discomfort to Chief Minister Y S Jaganmohan Reddy.

The fight for supremacy between Nellore rural MLA Kotamreddy Sridhar Reddy and Sarvepalli MLA Kakani Govardhana Reddy had cast dearly for the ruling party on Sunday.

The ruling party MLA had to be arrested, though for a while, which was taken advantage by the opposition TDP.

The issue between the two MLAs was taken advantage by the TDP with a woman officer holding protest against one MLA, Sridhar Reddy. This protest went viral in the social media with the TDP social media activists trolling it widely.

Some neutrals too have taken objection to the alleged harassment by Sridhar Reddy, thus forcing the chief minister to give free hand to the police, who subsequently filed cases and arrested the MLA.

The cases were too a small and the MLA was released on bail. The nature of cases and the subsequent bail too was taken advantage by the TDP in trolling the ruling party.

Though the TDP had never does against its then MLA Chintamaneni Prabhakar, in its government, the social media of the TDP took advantage of the weak cases and termed it an eye wash.

Now, the issue is almost settled and the opposition is stripped of its opportunity. But, the bigger challenge for the chief minister is to settle the squabbles between the two legislators.

Kakani Govardhana Reddy is a strong leader in the Nellore district politics, while Sridhar Reddy is a staunch loyalist of Jaganmohan Reddy.

The squabbles are too early for a party which is in power for just four months.

Though internal fight among the leaders is very common, it is not advisable for the young party like YSR Congress, where the first generation of leaders are holding power, unlike in other parties, particularly in TDP, where the second generation leadership is holding power.
