One can understand the eagerness of YSR Congress party president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy in exposing the double standards of Telugu Desam Party president and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu with regard to denial of the special category status to the State by the Centre.
Jagan is rightly demanding the TDP president to get out of the NDA and ask his ministers in the Narendra Modi cabinet to resign from their posts immediately.
He is also right in questioning the inability of Naidu in securing funds, leave alone special status from the Centre. And he is also justified in alleging that Naidu has mortgaged the interests of the state for the sake of power and positions in the Centre.
Well, but what one failed to understand is that why Jagan has remained silent on the injustice meted out to the state by the Centre. So far, he has not made a single statement aggressively attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi for backtracking on his statement on special status to AP, which he had made during the election rallies in 2014.
Jagan also did not utter a word against the Central BJP leaders like Arun Jaitely or Venkaiah Naidu for betraying Andhra Pradesh.
And that may create suspicion on Jagan’s intentions. It is better he takes up an agitation and attack both the TDP and the BJP for ditching the people of Andhra Pradesh.
The more aggressively he goes against Narendra Modi, the more political mileage Jagan will get. Otherwise, there is every possibility of people suspecting that Jagan may join NDA, the moment Naidu comes out of it.
