Sometime ago, actor-activist Shivaji said that a fake attack would be made on Opposition leader Jagan as part of BJP’s ‘Operation Garuda’ to disturb peace, law and order in AP so as to dislodge the Chandrababu government from power.
As if it is a coincidence, Jagan was indeed attacked at Vizag airport and he escaped with a minor knife injury on his shoulder. The attacker was a fan of Jagan himself which was confirmed by his own brother on video footage doing rounds in social media. The attacker-fan had tied flexis of Jagan along with his brothers in his village during last festival season. On his part, Jagan said such acts of cowardice would not dissuade but further strengthen his resolve to serve the people.
‘Operation Garuda or Operation Dravida’ or whatever it is, this is all reportedly aimed at destabilising non-BJP parties and governments in South India with greater focus on Chandrababu Naidu. PM Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah are being charged with hatching this conspiracy. It is in this context that TDP is repeatedly saying that BJP has got a secret deal with Jagan and Pawan as part of this ‘unholy Operation Garuda’.
At that time, Shivaji said there would be deliberate violence by YCP cadres and Jagan fans all over the state after the attack on him. But today’s incident was obviously a minor one as Jagan suffered a cut on his shoulder and got first aid before shortly going ahead on his journey to Hyderabad. Police also quickly stepped in to clear the doubts surrounding the incident. Information quickly reached people that the attack was made by Jagan’s own fan. The police are also finding out if the attacker is a member of YCP or not in the past.
Meanwhile, Jagan sent a tweet informing people about his wellbeing. He said that he was safe by the grace of God and with the blessings of the people. Such acts of cowardice would never dissuade him but further strengthen his resolve to serve the public, he asserted.
Considering the mood in YCP leaders, they are expected to blow this incident out of proportions for political gains. Not to be left behind, TDP is bringing out all details behind the attack to give a strong counter.
