YSR Congress party president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy might have made the announcement that his party was prepared to move a no-confidence motion in Parliament against the NDA government at the Centre on the issue of special category status to Andhra Pradesh, mainly to embarrass the Telugu Desam Party in the state.
The TDP leadership has not come out with any reaction to Jagan’s challenge, but surprisingly, the Congress party at the national level has come forward to support the YSRC if it really moves the no-confidence motion against NDA.
Congress party president Rahul Gandhi is understood to have told the party leaders from AP that his party would definitely support the motion if Jagan’s party moved it in Parliament.
“Irrespective of whether anybody backs Jagan’s move or not, let us extend our support to him on the SCS,” he told the party leaders.
This is a sort of embarrassment to Jagan whose objective is to target the TDP. If Jagan is really planning to go against the BJP government through no-trust motion, it would definitely be a plus point for him if the Congress supports him. But Jagan does not have such an intention really, it will land him soup.
Jagan was in fact reacting to actor and Jana Sena Party chief Pawan Kalyan’s demand for a no-confidence motion against the NDA government on special category status issue.
“We are prepared to move the motion in the last week of March after intensifying the agitation for SCS and as our Party has five MPs which is not a sufficient number to move the motion, if the TDP MPs join us it will be moved or else we are prepared to support should TDP table the no trust motion,” Jagan said.
