Entire Andhra Pradesh is protesting PM Narendra Modi’s tour by displaying anti-Modi posters and banners. Despite all these protests, the opposition YCP is nowhere to be seen in the scene.
CM’s son and Minister Lokesh asked whether Jaganmohan Reddy is bothered at all about AP people’s woes, or he is coolly taking rest in his Hyderabad Lotus Pond luxury house. Lokesh further asked whether all the YCP leaders were busy mobilising people for Modi’s public meeting in Guntur.
CBN cornered not only the BJP leaders but also the YCP as well to a large extent as the TDP has raised the tempo of pro-special status agitation in AP during Modi tour here. Thus Lokesh took the lead in attacking Jagan.
Lokesh asked whether the opposition leader is afraid to come out to join special status agitation because of the Modi government. The Enforcement Directorate and the Central Bureau of Investigation are investigating over 26 cases of illegal assets against Jagan.
Jagan is not coming forward to join AP people’s agitation who actually has claimed all the credit for making special status a big election plank. Obviously, Jagan is afraid that the BJP will send him to jail if he protested during Modi visit, Lokesh said. Lokesh took strong objection to Jagan not supporting AP people in their hour of need.
Earlier, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu said his party will do a peaceful “Gandhian” protest against PM’s visit. People in Andhra Pradesh have so much anger and disappointment with PM Narendra Modi that they are protesting against his visit.
