YSRC supremo Jaganmohan Reddy has become a tireless fighter these days. The other day he sided with the river front villages of Amaravati development region, who were opposing acquisition of their lands for proposed capital city. yesterday, he was seen preparing the students and youth for a fight for special status. In between he visits houses of farmers who committed suicides and consoles the families of those who were killed in accidents. Today he is with farmers of Machilipatnam asking them to continue their fight against the what he called forcible land acquisition. Jagan is seen everywhere- an usual activity for any opposition leader.

“We will go to courts for justice, We will stage dharnas, if necessary we will organize district bandh,” Jagan told the farmers ” Acquiring the land against your will is illegal. There are rules to acquire lands. The lands that give two crops are not supposed to be taken away from the farmers. If you are not willing, no force can take your lands,” Jagan told the cheering crowds.

Jagan assured them that he would stand by them and fight for their right to not to give the lands for the government for any purpose.

Cash-for-vote : Jagan wants debate on Naidu’s role


The cash-for-vote scam rocked the AP Assembly on fifth day, the last day of the ongoing monsoon session, which led to the acrimonious scenes in the well and finally to the two adjournments.
In Andhra Pradesh Assembly everything boils down to Jagan vs Chandrabu Naidu. Today, the vote-for-scam also has got finally reduced to Naidu versus Jagan fight relegating the regular business to the background.

YSR Congress insisted on taking up the infamous cash-for -vote scam as adjournment motion for a debate in the House as the chief minister’s name figured 22 times in the charge-sheet file by Telangana ACB, which is investigating the case. Ruling party members stoutly opposed any debate on the subject as it was related to another state. Speaker Kodela Sivaprasadarao disallowed the notic while advising the opposition benches that it was sub judice.

But, opposition members, demanding a debate on the subject, rushed into the well raising slogans.
The YSRCP MLAs Roja, Kotamreddy Sridhar Reddy and Chevireddy Bhaskar Reddy attacked the TDP for its efforts to shield the chief minister who was involved in the cash-for-vote scam. “The ruling party is scared of debating the issue. Because Naidu is personally involved in the scam. He is taking commissions in the state and using the money to buy MLAs in other state,” Roja attacked. The treasury benched attempted to repel the attack by alleging that Jagan had colluded with TRS in Telangana.

The TDP deployed chief whip Kalva Srinivasulu, welfare minister Ravela Kishore Babu, senior member Dhulipalla Narendra and sports minister Achhannaidu, who charged that YSRC was in league with TRS to kill the TDP in Telangana. “Jagan was embodiment of corruption. He is the most corrupt politician in the country. Every Friday he attend the court to face trial in more than a dozen cases. He has no moral right to talk on Chandrababu Naidu,” they said.

Reacting to the allegation Jagan said it was Chandrababu Naidu who hobnobbed with KCR . Showing a picture of KCR and Naidu campaigning jointly in 2009 elections, Jagan said,” the TDP has a lot to answer on the cash -for-votes scam.,” he also hurled a challenge that he would resign in minutes from the Assembly if the ruling TDP offered proof that he had spoken to or written a letter to Telangana CM KCR. He asked Naidu to tell whether the voice recorded in telephone conversion was his or not.

Jagan Fast-tracks his political project


The opposition party leader YS Jaganmohan Reddy appears to have put his political project on fast track. While putting chief minister Chandrababu  Naidu on notice, he announced that he would sit on indefinite fast from September 15, if the government fails to achieve anything concrete on getting special status accorded to Andhra Pradesh. He announced his program of action hours after Assembly adopted a resolution urging the centre to bestow the special status on the state, which is in the throes of partition.

Indefinite fast, definitely, is a democratic tool one can use in rarest of rare cases. Normally, politics prefer protracted battles. Instead of exploiting the cause to mobilize the people on a longer course in protracted fight, Jagan’s fast tracking has the potential to alienate him from the other political parties like CPI, CPM and Congress, Lok Satta etc and masses.

Jagan is not attempting to make common cause with these parties. In fact Left have whole heartedly supported him in this case. Before announcing his indefinite fast, Jagan should have taken Left parties into confidence. Another thing, fifteen-day notice is too short for any government to process the decision. In our set-up the resolution has to travel a meandering path to reach its final destination. So, Jagan seems to have reached a conclusion that the announcement by centre is unlikely to come by in notice period, and he should launch the final missile.

Jagan has not prepared the people for his final assault on Naidu, nor has he taken the friendly parties into confidence. Isn’t it going to be a misadventure by a young man in a hurry? Jagan must ensure that his act did not simulate emotions that lead to suicides by the people from poorer section, who are already frustrated by many socio-economic issues. Victims of all political movements always come poorer sections.
