No entry for MPs in Jagan's dinner?

No entry for MPs in Jagan's dinner?

YSR Congress party president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy is hosting a lavish dinner for his party MLAs, MLCs, besides IAS and IPS officers and district collectors and superintendents of police.

The venue is Punnami Ghat on the banks of Krishna river near Vijayawada.

The dinner meeting is said to be part of Jagan’s goodwill gesture for his party lawmakers and bureaucrats on the occasion of completion of six months of his rule in the state.

Besides, it is also an occasion for the party MLAs and MLCs, who normally do not get an opportunity to meet Jagan, to closely move with him and bring to his notice the issues pertaining to their constituencies and also personal works.

It is also an opportunity for Jagan to take the officials into confidence and seek their cooperation for the smooth running of administration. The MLAs also will get a chance to meet the senior bureaucrats to get their works done.

The dinner is arranged table-wise, so that Jagan will spend some time at every table to interact with the legislators and also officials.

So far so good. However, the dinner being hosted by Jagan is learnt to have disappointed his party MPs – both from Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha, as they were asked not to come to the dinner.

Sources said initially, there was an invitation to all the party MPs for the dinner meet. And the MPs thought they would also get the rare opportunity to meet the chief minister and get their issues solved. It would also give them a chance to meet the senior officials of the state.

But on Monday night, the YSRC MPs are understood to have received an information from the CMO that the dinner meeting was only for MLAs and MLCs and the MPs don’t have to come. This has caused a lot of disgruntlement in the MPs.

However, sources said, Jagan is planning to host a separate dinner for the party MPs in New Delhi at a later date.

“Since he will not be in a position to meet everybody at the Tuesday’s dinner, he thought it would be better to restrict it to only local legislators,” a source said.

Will these restrictions apply to Rajya Sabha member V Vijay Sai Reddy and Jagan’s close aide P Mithun Reddy as well? Let us wait and see.
