Kisses then, punches now: Naidu on Jagan treatment


TDP boss and Opposition leader N Chandrababu Naidu is highlighting the failures, demolitions, atrocities and extremities of the Jaganmohan Reddy government in every possible way. Now, Naidu is harshly targetting the many shocking treatments that Jagan Reddy is giving to the Andhra voters. Naidu said that Jagan gave countless kisses to each and every voter he came across during his Padayatra and election campaigns. But now, the same Jagan is giving countless punches to all sections of voters regardless of their socio-economic backgrounds. All, except YCP close coterie and their followers, are suffering under the present regime.

Naidu is making these partially personal attacks in tune with the changing mood among the people. Analysts say that the coming days will witness even heightened criticism of Jagan Reddy Rule because of its lack of a proper direction. It was undoubtedly significant that because of his mother’s active religious background, Jagan Reddy reflected the same style in his election campaign at that time. He unhesitatingly held heads, rubbed cheeks, planted kisses on foreheads and did so many things. Finally, he asked for One Chance. The scenario completely changed now. Jagan Reddy is not seen outdoors anywhere. He is not mingling with people. Section 144 is being implemented around his Tadepalli residence to avoid crowds of his Padayatra fans.
