Raghurama Raju moving away from YSRC?

Raghurama Raju moving away from YSRC?

It appears YSR Congress party MP from Narsapuram K Raghurama Krishnam Raju is gradually moving away from YSR Congress party, notwithstanding his comments in the media interviews earlier that he has not been defying the party at all.

But going by his statements in the recent past, Raju is not hiding his unhappiness over the decisions of YSRC president and chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy. He is openly expressing his views that appear to be against the party line.

The other day, Raju came in defence of the ongoing agitation by the farmers of Amaravati capital region notwithstanding the fact that the party leaders have been accusing the protesters as paid artistes who are being instigated by the Telugu Desam Party leaders against the government.

The Narsapuram MP said the farmers were fully justified in their demand as they had given their precious land for the capital region and they would be left in the lurch if the capital is shifted from Amaravati to Visakhapatnam.

“The government should first address their grievances before taking any decision,” he said.

On Saturday, too, Raghurama Krishnam Raju played down the Cabinet sub-committee report on insider trading in Amaravati saying it had several loopholes.

He said it was not possible to fix TDP president and former chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu in the insider trading case because of these loopholes.

“Existing laws cannot support the allegations made in the cabinet sub-committee report. The government cannot do anything to Chandrababu Naidu because of these laws. Unless the governments takes up amendment of the laws, the government cannot implicate Naidu in the insider trading case,” he said.

The Jagan government is planning to entrust the case to CBI or CB-CID after taking the legal opinion.

So, what is Raghurama Raju up to, by making critical comments against the government? Apparently, he is trying to get closer to the Bharatiya Janata Party, say sources.
