AP Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy is shocking everybody with his arbitrary decisions all the time. He talks a lot about repairing the spoilt system in AP but what he does in practice violates all the principles of natural justice. He brought the rule of 75 per cent jobs for local youths in industries. However, he is freely violating this himself in giving nominated posts in bodies like TTD. AP got only 7 members on TTD Board while Telangana snatched an equal share.
On the other hand, the Jaganmohan Reddy government passed new rules for giving 50 per cent reservations for SC, ST, BCs on temples boards. Nothing of this spirit is reflected in TTD Board appointments. What more, SC MLA G Babu Rao’s name initially figured on the list of TTD Board members but his name was deleted at the last minute. Analysts say that CM Jagan’s violations of his own value systems is nothing surprising. He has scant respect for laws and conventions. It is no use expecting Jagan Circar to administer the state in a systematic way.
TTD Board appointments also showed how much indebted Jagan is to Telangana CM K Chandrasekhar Rao. Is Andhra in the iron grip of KCR without whose blessings Jagan cannot protect his Hyderabad property for long?
