Today’s PM Modi’s AP tour has raised much political heat. All other parties seized the opportunity to attack the BJP and score some political points on the demands for special status and other promises. Modi will address a public meeting at Guntur. Rivals gave out ‘Modi Go Back’ slogan and put up flexis everywhere.
The TDP, the Congress and the Left parties are observing it as a black day in the history of unjustly separated AP. The YCP and Jana Sena party are the only ones not using the occasion for their political advantage. While CM Naidu demanded BJP explanation on special status, Congress AP President Raghuveera Reddy took objection to the BJP’s indifference to the needs of AP state in its worst crisis.
PM public meeting is scheduled to be held at Etukur village near Guntur where the followers of BJP President Kanna Laxminarayana are present in large numbers. Actually, they are sympathisers of Pawan Kalyan party. Along caste lines, they support Kanna as well. Extra security measures are being taken for Modi tour because of prevailing mood among the AP special status protesters.
