Sharmila episode: Jagan looking for victim sympathy ?


Political parties were stunned after YSR’s daughter Sharmila made a police complaint over social media posts against her character. She said she never had any affair with actor Prabhas but political rivals are spreading lies about their relationship with bad motives.

The TDP leadership is taken by surprise over this and it is initially confused not knowing how to react. All the more interesting is the fact that Sharmila chose to make police complaint before the Telangana police. In the Kodi Kathi case also, Jaganmohan Reddy made the police complaint in Hyderabad while the incident took place in Visakhapatnam.

This is clear from the KCR government’s outright support to Jagan. The TDP leaders concluded that the Sharmila episode is another media gimmick by Jagan to get people’s attention ahead of the 2019 election. Moreover, there’s the effort to project the image of victim to get sympathy from voters. The TDP leaders say this case shows the frustration on the part of Jagan to get support through whatever means. The question arose why YCP kept silent last four years but raking it up now.
