Cold Response To Jagan From Centre?

Cold Response To Jagan From Centre?

YSR Congress party president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy had been to New Delhi on Monday on a two-day tour, apparently to take up certain important pending issues pertaining to the state.

But going by the reports coming from New Delhi, the response from the Centre was not too encouraging and in fact, the Bharatiya Janata Party leadership appeared to be too arrogant to give proper response to the chief minister, who had won massive mandate from the public in the recent elections.

Jagan had to wait for one full day to get the appointment of Union home minister and BJP national president Amit Shah on Tuesday.

He was told Shah was busy overseeing the polling process in Maharashtra and Haryana assembly elections.

And when Jagan finally met Shah, the latter did not give the required time to the chief minister to listen to the issues he had raised.

In fact, it was Amit Shah’s birthday on Tuesday and there was a steady stream of visitors for him. As a result, Shah could not give him sufficient time to Jagan.

At the same time, the chief minister was expected to meet Union law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad and coal minister Prahlad Joshi, but it is learnt these appointments were also cancelled as the ministers were preoccupied with other works.

In any case, the way the Central leadership cold-shouldered Jagan is not correct and it shows the BJP leadership is deliberately trying to avoid the chief minister.

One can understand the reasons for the BJP ignoring TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu when he was the chief minister in the past because of his anti-Modi stand in the past.

But Jagan has not adopted any confrontationist attitude towards the Centre and has been maintaining restraint despite provocative statements by the local BJP leaders.

Yet, the BJP leadership is behaving in a high handed manner!
