Why did JC Diwakar Reddy announce resignation?


Following the resignation bomb dropped by TDP MP J C Diwakar Reddy on Thursday, Minister for Water Resources Devineni Umamaheswara Rao issued orders to the officials in the district to release 200cusecs of water to Chagallu Reservoir. The Anantapur MP announced that he was quitting his post as he failed to develop his constituency and bring water to Chagallu.

However, being a TDP MP, resignation drama was uncalled for. What is he trying to convey to the ruling party? Was he trying to say despite being a TDP leader he is unable to develop his constituency?

Even though he publicly claimed that the water is for drinking purpose, as per reports Diwakar Reddy’s family possesses hundreds of acres of land in the ayacut of Chagallu Reservoir and needs water for irrigation during the Kharif.

Also, family politics are playing a key role. The TDP supremo neglecting his family members who are in politics displeased the Anantapur MP. He is reportedly piqued by Chief Minister’s failure to take a note of Olympic association issue between Galla Jaydev and his son Pawan Reddy who met Chandrababu thrice. However, Pawan denied the reports. Also, his nephew MLC Deepak Reddy’s arrest in trespassing of land followed by suspension from the party did not go down well.

Another possibility is that, taking a leaf out of Nandyal development, Diwakar Reddy might be trying to get TDP leaders on ground for development in his constituency after the seat falls vacant following his resignation. In press conference Diwakar Reddy said that there were forces working against the development of his constituency making obvious reference to MLA Vaikuntam Prabhakar Chowdary. The local legislator is said to be against widening of roads and betterment of the drainage system and even engaged in verbal fight at municipal council meeting.

It would be interesting to note if he will backtrack on his resignation after the issues are resolved.

TDP stages Dharna “Drama” in Parliament


The problem of TDP in Parliament is that it is neither here nor there. Since the party is a partner in the Mody led NDA government it is not expected to shout like the Opposition in the parliament and rush into the well, at the same it can’t afford to remain silent when part-time politicians like Pavan Kalyan also started attacking it. This predicament of the party is making it butt of a joke even among the party MPs.

As if it is a reply to Pavan, who asked what were the TDP MPs doing parliament to get special status accorded to Andhra Pradesh, TDP MPs today staged a dharna demanding special category status to Andhra Pradesh.

The MPs led by Rajya Sabha MP CM Ramaesh demanded the implementation of all assurances given at the time of passage of Telangana Bill such as incentives to industries, grants to bridge the deficit created by loss of revenue of after bifurcation and granting the special category status .

Holding placards, the TDP MPs chanted slogans such as “grant of special category status” and “implement all promises made to successor state of Andhra Pradesh”.

The MPs finally ended up criticizing Congress for disrupting the house and  preventing TDP members from raising the special status issue in Parliament.

But, JC Diwakar Reddy cracked serous joke on the dharna.

The Ananatpur MP, who might have participated in a dharna probably for the first time in his political career, was not happy with party’s  perfunctory approach to these issues.

“This dharnas is staged perfunctorily,” he let the cat out of the bag.

” This dharna program has been taken up as a knee jerk reaction to Pavan Kalyan’s attacks. This won’t take you any where,” he revealed what is in his mind.

JC Brothers ko gussa kyon aata hai


Many leaders lost relevance after 2014 elections- some became irrelevant following their defeat while some following their defection. Popular as JC brothers, JC Divakar Reddy and JC Prabhakar Reddy, are not taken seriously in Telugu Desam party. Both switched over to TDP from Congress before the 2014 election. While Divakar Reddy won Anantapuramu Lok Sabha constituency, his brother Prabhakar Reddy Tadpatri Assembly segment. Their grip in local politics is pincer like. It is difficult to wrest the two seats from them, at least for the time being. For the first time, the brothers, find themselves powerless, despite being in a party that is in power. Diwakar Reddy used to say before elections that TDP would win 12 seats in district. It did. But, his contribution to victory is not credited to his account. One thing is true, the dusty town Tadapatri changed a lot during their heydays.

Naidu is also maintaining long distance from them. They also know what they are in TDP. Elder JC is not at all a visitor to NTR Trust Bhavan.

In Delhi, where any language other than Hindi is considered barbaric, Divakar Reddy doesn’t matter much. In TDP, unless you have the open endorsement of Big Boss, you are unwelcome in the corridors power. So, cynical has the Anantapuramu MP grown these days, he remarked, “MPs are being used as curry leaves. MPs, MLAs are sheer waste in this country. We don’t need any democracy. Who matters in Andhra politics in Delhi and Hyderabad? Prime Minister there, and chief minister here,” elder JC lamented some time back. They both are known for their off-beat and sensational comments. While elder JC spares none in his attacks including Modi and Governor.

Younger JC is always seen seething with anger. This time the target is Rahul Gandhi. Talking to media in his home town Tadpatri Monday, the angry MLA demanded that Rahul should first distribute ex-gratia to the families of farmers who committed suicide during Congress regime. “About 600 farmers committed suicide during the recent Congress rule in the district. Congress vice president should first console these families rather than harping on the suicides happened during TDP rule in the past one year,” he said.

Rahul is visiting Anantapuramu district to console the bereaved families tomorrow.

Prabhakar Reddy warned that, “We, along with family members of farmers who died, will stop Rahul Gandhi’s visit in 300 vehicles if he doesn’t first visit the families of those farmers who died when Congress was in power.”

Prabhakar Reddy is forgetting that during 10 year-rule of Congress, his brother was minister for some time and MLA for whole period.
