Why Vijayasai skipped YSRCP’s “Janaagraha Deeksha”?

0

The ruling YSRCP in Andhra Pradesh went on state-wide protests in the name of “Janaagraha Deeksha” on Thursday (today) to protest the abusive remarks made by TDP leader K.Pattabhiram against YSRCP chief and and AP Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy.

Ministers, YSRCP MLAs, MLCs, MPs and party leaders came on to the streets and took part in agitation programmes.

Strangely, YSRCP MP Vijayasai Reddy, who is considered as No.2 in YSRCP after Jagan, was seen nowhere in these protests.

This triggered speculations that the gap between Jagan and Vijayasai has widened.

The talk about Jagan sidelining Vijayasai is doing rounds in political circles ever since he started giving prominence to Jagan’s chief advisor Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy both in party and government.

Jagan shifted Vijayasai from his Tadepalli camp office to Vizag and was made incharge of the party’s North Andhra affairs.

Speculations are rife that Jagan is all set to drop Vijayasai even from North Andhra affairs soon and will be replaced by another Reddy MP.

Against this backdrop, Vijayasai keeping himself away from YSRCP protests against TDP on Thursday raised political heat in YSRCP.

This is because Vijayasai leaves no opportunity to attack Chandrababu and Lokesh and his absence from YSRCP protests triggered speculations that Vijayasai’s hold in YSRCP is coming to an end.

Vijaysai hits back at rivals within party with Praja Durbar

0

As if to answer the critics about his sudden silence, YSRCP general secretary and Rajya Sabha MP Vijaysai Reddy has begun “Praja Durbar,” an interface to understand and solve the problems of the common people in Visakhapatnam. Anyone can meet Vijaysai and get their problems addressed immediately through this Praja Durbar.

According to sources close to the MP, the Praja Durbar would be on for five days a week from Monday till Friday, during which anyone can meet him without any appointment. Vijaysai will directly speak to the concerned officials and resolve their issues quickly sans any bureaucratic red-tapism. Till now, Vijaysai used to listen to the problems of only those who used to meet him with a prior appointment. Now, they can meet him during the Praja Durbar without any hassles.

Political analysts see this move as an attempt to answer the critics who claimed that Vijaysai Reddy has fallen silent these days. There was also a buzz that YS Jagan had asked him to lay off Visakhapatnam in view of the opposition from the other leaders in the YSRCP. Several MLAs and other party leaders had recently complained that Vijaysai was controlling every lever of power in Vizag and that his nod was needed for even small things.

There were also reports that he had shifted his base to New Delhi these days. However, proving all these claims wrong, Vijaysai has begun the Praja Darbar. Not just that, he has also signalled his intentions to contest from Vizag in the 2024 elections.

Jagan to cut Vijayasai’s priority in YSRCP further?

0

Vijayasai Reddy was considered as No.2 leader in YSRCP ever since YS Jagan mohan Reddy launched YSRCP in 2011.

Accordingly, Jagan made him party’s general secretary as well as Rajya Sabha member.

But after YSRCP came to power in Andhra Pradssh and Jagan became Chief Minister in May 2019, Vijayasai is slowly losing his prominence in the party and government.

In his place, Jagan started giving priority to Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy in the party and government.

Vijayasai has been shifted from CM’s Tadepalli camp office to Vizag first.

Vijayasai was given responsibility of handling North Andhra affairs.

Now speculations are rife in YSRCP circles that Jagan has decided to drop Vijayasai even from North Andhra affairs soon and replace him with YSRCP Rajya Sabha member
Vemireddy Prabhakar Reddy.

Jagan wants to confine Vijayasai to Delhi and deal national politics. If that happens, Vijayasai will soon fade out from AP politics.

Raghurama’s ‘legal war’ against Jagan, Vijayasai continues!

0

It’s not even a month since the CBI court in Nampally, Hyderabad dismissed the petitions filed by YSRCP rebel MP Raghurama Krishnam Raju seeking cancellation of bails granted to YSRCP president and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy and YSRCP Rajya Sabha member Vijayasai Reddy in illegal assets cases booked by CBI and ED against them.

Raghurama filed a fresh petition in the Telangana High Court on Wednesday (today) challenging the judgement of CBI Court dismissing his petitions seeking cancellation of bails granted to Jagan and Vijayasai.

The CBI Court dismissed Raghurama’s petitions on September 15 after hearing the cases for over three months.

Raghurama filed petitions in CBI Court arguing that Jagan and Vijayasai violated bail conditions by influencing witnesses in CBI cases filed against him after becoming CM and MP respectively.

However, Jagan and Vijayasai argued that they did not violate bail conditions and Raghurama filed the petitions against them for political reasons.

The CBI Court was convinced with Jagan and Vijayasai’s arguments and dismissed Raghurama’s petitions

After waiting for three weeks, Raghurama again filed a fresh petition in the Telangana High Court challenging CBI’s judgement.

The High Court is expected to hear the case after Dasara vacation till October 17.

Is distance growing between Jagan and Vijaysai Reddy?

0

The buzz in the YSRCP circles is over YS Jagan’s Man Friday and Rajya Sabha MP V Vijayasai Reddy. There is a buzz that Vijaysai has not met YS Jagan in over one month. This would perhaps be the longest time they haven’t met in recent times. In fact, Vijaysai has not visited the Tadepalli camp office in about one month.

The political circles are wondering whether this is an indication of the growing estrangement between the two top leaders of the YSRCP. Of late, Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy alone has Jagan’s eyes and ears. Key leaders like YV Subba Reddy and Peddireddi Ramachandra Reddy are not meeting him very often. But, despite all these, Vijaysai has access to Jagan. But, even this appears to have changed.

Vijaysai is focusing mainly on North Andhra, especially Visakhapatnam, where Jagan is going to set up the executive capital. However, there are complaints galore from North Andhra about how Vijaysai is emerging as the top boss. Nothing in Vizag seems to move without Vijaysai’s nod. Some leaders have reportedly taken this issue to the notice of YS Jagan too.

The latest development is that YS Jagan has appointed the just-retired chief secretary, Aditya Nath Das, as the government advisor with headquarters in Delhi. This means that Das would be engaging with the officials and the various departments of the Central Government. This also implies that to a large extent, there would be an overlap of duties and functions of both Reddy and Das. Many see this as a key development. Strangely Vijaysai is unusually silent on the social media front too. His tweets are becoming rarer. So, what’s cooking?

Why VIijaya Sai Reddy is silent?

0

MP Vijaya Sai Reddy is known for his arrogant comments on opposition party leaders and he is always very active in social media. However, his silence in recent times is surprising many. Details as follows.

Vijay Sai Reddy, in the recent past, trolled Pawan using nick names and foul language. He also used derogatory words on Kapu community some times and Kapu leaders complained to police on him. However, in the last 3 days, political atmosphere in the state has been charged and intense war of words is going on between Janasena and YSRCP leaders but still he is not responding on the issue. If he were the same person as earlier, he would have attacked Pawan with the most severe words by now. But he is silent and that surprised many.

While some say he didn’t get any confirmation for extension of his Rajya Sabha which is due to expire next May, some others say he has been maintaining silence since last couple of months due to unknown reasons. It is known news that, Raghu Rama Krishnam Raju, Vijaya Sai, Pawan and others met in Delhi recently during a marriage function and didn’t hesitate to let the public know about it.

We need to wait and see whether Vijaya Sai will respond on the ongoing issue or maintain strategic silence.

Jagan, Vijayasai bail cancellation: CBI Court dismisses RRR’s petitions

0

YSRCP chief and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and his close aide, YSRCP MP V Vijayasai Reddy got a reprieve in the CBI Court in Hyderabad on Wednesday (today).

The CBI Court dismissed the petitions filed by YSRCP rebel MP K Raghurama Krishnam Raju seeking cancellation of the bail granted to them in quid pro quo cases filed by CBI in 2012.

Raju filed the petition seeking cancellation of bail to Jagan in April this year and another petition seeking cancellation of bail to Vijaysai Reddy in July this year.

The arguments in these cases were completed in July. The CBI Court reserved its judgement to August 25.

But later it was again postponed to September 25.

Soon after the CBI court dismissed his petition today, Raju stated that he would challenge the judgement in the Telangana High Court soon and made it clear that he will move even Supreme Court to get justice.

The CBI court disagreed with the arguments of the rebel MP that Jagan and Vijayasai had violated the bail conditions by influencing the witnesses after they came to power in AP in May 2019 in connection with the quid pro quo case investigated by the CBI in 2012.

The court noted that there were no complaints from anyone against Jagan and Vijayasai influencing witnesses and impacting the CBI inquiry.

Raju contended in his petition that Jagan had tried to influence several officials, who were co-accused in his case, by posting them in key positions, such as chief secretary, principal secretary and advisor to the government.

Since all the witnesses cited by the prosecution in the quid pro quo case have now become subjects of Jagan, he would influence them not to depose against him before the CBI court, Raju argued.

But the CBI court felt that Raju’s contentions appeared to be purely hypothetical and were not substantiated by any material evidence to prove that Jagan and Vijayasai had influenced any witnesses.

He said he has plans to buy four acres in Bheemili and settle there in the futre.

Vijayasai said his only goal is the development of North Andhra region.

He stated that he was focussing on North Andhra region as per the directions of party chief and AP CM YS Jaganmohan Reddy and has no personal interests there.

If anyone tries to misuse my name or position to indulge in land settlements or illegal activities, I will take severe action against them and requested all to complain to him if they find such people anywhere.

Managements, Chandrababu Naidu silent on capping fees: YSRCP

0

Senior YSRCP leader and Rajya Sabha member V. Vijayasai Reddy on Tuesday said neither corporate schools nor Nara Chandrababu Naidu are opening their mouths on the issue of capping schools and intermediate fees.

“Corporate managements (of schools and junior colleges) are tight-lipped and Babu (Naidu) is keeping quiet because he is scared that people will be after him,” claimed Reddy.

He made these remarks in the light of Andhra Pradesh School Education Regulatory and Monitoring Commission (APSERMC) capping and regulating private school and junior college fee structures for the next three years.

The commission capped school fees between Rs 10,000 to Rs 18,000 per annum from nursery to the tenth standard in three categories depending on the type of location.

Similarly, it capped intermediate course fees between Rs 12,000 to Rs 20,000 per annum for various courses, including hostel and coaching fees for both schools and junior colleges.

Hostel fees have been capped between Rs 18,000 to Rs 24,000 per annum while there is a uniform Rs 20,000 cap per annum on competitive examination coaching for students in intermediate courses.

Reddy lashed out at some sections of the media for talking against fee regulation.

According to the MP, Chief Minister Y. S. Jagan Mohan Reddy’s education initiatives for the sake of poor students’ future are bold and exemplary.

He said many experts praised the CM’s schemes and programmes to further education, which saw a total investment of Rs 26,678 crore in the past two years.

“In the next two years, Jagan is working towards bringing Rs 36,384 crore investments and creating employment for 75,000 people,” said Vijayasai Reddy.

He noted that the Chief Minister is working towards industrially developing the southern state.

Meanwhile, he trained his guns on Telugu Desam Party (TDP) supremo Nara Chandrababu Naidu for criticizing the CM who opined in 2020 that all the people have to live with coronavirus considering its pandemic nature.

Citing the World Health Organisation (WHO), the parliamentarian shared its findings that Covid could become a disease which will always stay.

He noted that WHO made these findings after a scientific study.

Jagan, Vijaysai bail case: Judgment on Sep 15

0

The CBI Court in Hyderabad will deliver its judgment on petitions seeking cancelation of bail granted to Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy and YSRCP MP Vijayasai Reddy on September 15.

Both these petitions were filed by YSRCP rebel MP Raghurama Krishnam Raju.

While arguments on Jagan case were completed in July, the arguments on Vijayasai case concluded on Wednesday (today).

The court stated that it will deliver judgment on both these cases on September 15.

Advocates of Jagan and Vijayasai urged court to dismiss the petitions arguing that they were politically motivated. They told court that they did not violate bail conditions.

However Raju’s lawyers argued that both were violating bail conditions and influencing witnesses in CBI cases filed against them by using their power as CM and MP.

There was tension among YSRCP leaders and cadre today that court will deliver its judgment today cancelling bail to Jagan and Jagan may land in Chanchalguda jail again and resign to CM post.

However, they heaved a sigh of relief after court adjourned the case to September 15.

Andhra govt gives permission to start Bhavanampadu port works

1

The Andhra Pradesh government has given permission to start the first phase work worth Rs 4,362 crore for the Bhavanampadu port in Srikakulam district, senior YSRCP leader and Rajya Sabha member V. Vijayasai Reddy said on Saturday.

“Permission to start first phase works worth Rs 4,362 crore has been sanctioned for Bhavanampadu port in Srikakulam,” said Reddy.

He said the port would be developed in a land parcel of 6,410 acres.

“Jagan’s government is focusing on developing the coastal region,” the MP noted.

Meanwhile, the MP highlighted that no state will feature signboards signalling exhaustion of government school admissions.

“No state will have signboards saying government school seats are over. Schools teeming with students is an example of Jagan’s revolutionary reforms.”

He alleged that during the former N. Chandrababu Naidu’s regime, there were many schools with one teacher not even having five students to teach.

Vijayasai bail case: CBI follows escape route again

0

The Central Bureau of Investigation followed escape route again on the issue of cancellation of bail granted to YSRCP MP Vijayasai Reddy in illegal assets cases filed against AP CM YS Jaganmohan Reddy.

While Jagan is A1 in these cases, Vijayasai is A2 in cases filed by CBI.

YSRCP rebel MP Raghurama Krishna Raju filed separate petitions in CBI court seeking cancelation of bails granted to them and speed up investigation into these cases filed in 2012.

Vijayasai’s case came up for hearing today (Friday).

Like Jagan’s bail case earlier, the CBI did not submit its stand to court on the issue of whether it wants cancelation of bail to Vijayasai or not.

The CBI simply filed a memo in the court leaving the decision to court’s discretion whether to cancel bail or not like in Jagan’s case.

Why CBI is not seeking cancelation of bail to Jagan and Vijayasai is something which no one understands.

The CBI used to strongly oppose bail to Jagan, when he was opposition leader. After he became CM, CBI is keeping mum.

With this, the CBI Court adjourned the case to August 16 after Vijayasai’s lawyer sought more time to file counter on Raju’s petition

Naidu left debt burden of Rs 2 lakh crore in Andhra: YSRCP

0

Senior YSRCP leader and Rajya Sabha member V. Vijayasai Reddy on Monday alleged that former chief minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu left debts of more than Rs 2 lakh crore in the state when he left office.

“The debt burden left by Babu’s (Naidu) government is more than Rs 2 lakh crore,” said Reddy.

Bills due to contractors, power purchase dues, fee reimbursements and compensation to projects evacuees are some of them, he said.

The YSRCP leader castigated some sections of people for targeting the state government.

At a time when some sections of the media are attacking the state government on its credit position, the Parliamentarian compared the state debts of some states to prove a point that all is well.

He said Andhra has a debt of Rs 3.7 lakh crore, compared to Uttar Pradesh (Rs 6 lakh crore), Maharashtra (Rs 5 lakh crore), Tamil Nadu (Rs 4.8 lakh crore), Telangana (Rs 3.2 lakh crore) and Kerala (Rs 3.2 lakh crore)

Earlier, the ruling party leader alleged that some sections of the media are attempting to pass on lies about the Pulichintala project as truth.

He alleged that the earlier government under Naidu did not follow the protocols before filling the dam with water.

“A 2015 experts report said that the gates were weak and it exposes Babu,” he alleged.

CBI court issues notice to MP Vijayasai in bail cancellation case

0

The CBI Court in Hyderabad on Saturday (today) issued notices to YSRCP Rajya Sabha member V.Vijayasai Reddy on a petition seeking cancellation of bail granted to him.

The petition was filed by YSRCP rebel MP K Raghurama Krishna Raju on August 3.

The CBI Court directed Vijayasai Reddy and CBI to file counters on Raju’s petition.

The CBI Court is expected to hear this case on August 10.

It may be recalled that Raju also filed a petition in May this year seeking cancellation of bail granted to Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy. The arguments in this case have recently concluded and the judgement on Jagan’s bail is expected on August 25.

In his petition, Raju said while Andhra Pradesh Chief Miniter YS Jaganmohan Reddy is A1 (Accused No.1) in quid pro cases filed by CBI, Vijayasai Reddy is A2 (Accused No.2).

Raju brought to the notice of the court that Vijaysai Reddy as MP is frequently meeting union ministers and officials in home and finance ministries and trying to create an impressing that he has ‘close links’ with home and finance ministers and officials and trying to ‘influence’ witnesses directly and indirectly with his acts and trying to create a sense of fear among witnesses.

Raju informed the court that Vijayasai as MP has written a letter to union home minister Amit Shah seeking not to post an officer as CBI joint director, who was the prime investigation officer in Jagan’s illegal assets cases.

Raju said this amounts to involvement in the process of free and fair inquiry of the cases.

Is Vijaysai running parallel YSRCP in Vizag?

0

Is dissidence building against Chief Minister YS Jagan’s most trusted lieutenant? Have several YSRCP MLAs lodged a complaint against Rajya Sabha MP Vijaysai Reddy? Are complaints being filed against his working style and his attempts to emerge as the boss of North Coastal Andhra region?

The political circles are agog with the stories of how Rajya Sabha MP Vijaysai Reddy is taking complete control of the party and governance. There are stories and stories of how the administration in the north Andhra districts is pandering to Vijaysai Reddy. He has reportedly developed a network of informants both in politics and in administration and is getting information about everything happening. Sources say that Vijaysai Reddy’s nod is necessary even for taking up small works or making appointments.

Recently, Vijaysai’s birthday celebrations were organised on an unprecedented scale. Banners, buntings, hoardings and flexis dominated the city skyline. The issue even went to the notice of YS Jagan, sources say. They add that the flexis were removed only after the issue went to the notice of the chief minister.

A small group of MLAs, ministers and key party functionaries have reportedly taken the issue to the notice of the Chief Minister. YS Jagan is said to have taken note of the things. As of now, there is no palpable action against Vijaysai Reddy. Yet, people feel that there would be some definitive action against the Rajya Sabha MP in the days to come and Jagan will surely leash in the Rajya Sabha MP.

Andhra govt reiterates oppn to Vizag Steel Plant sale

0

Rajya Sabha member V. Vijayasai Reddy on Thursday reiterated that the Andhra Pradesh government opposed the privatisation of the Visakhapatnam Steel Plant (VSP), and said the party MPs will vehemently take up the issue during the upcoming Parliament Session.

“We will join forces with labour unions to save VSP and intensify our struggle. We will take on board leaders from other parties as well and stall the Parliament sessions,” said Reddy.

On Thursday, Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy held a meeting with the ruling Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) Parliamentarians and deliberated on various issues.

Following the completion of more than 150 days of protests for saving the steel plant, VSP labour union leaders are contemplating to take their protests to Delhi.

Similarly, he said the ruling party MPs will take up the water dispute issue between the Telugu states in the forthcoming Parliament sessions for protecting the interests of Andhra Pradesh.

He said AP will demand the deployment of Central forces at common reservoirs and the notification of KRMB.

The Parliamentarian lashed out at those people who were targeting the Rayalaseema Lift Irrigation Scheme.

According to the MP, the YSRCP government has always sought special status for the southern state and reminded that Jagan Mohan Reddy demanded special status on multiple occasions when he met the Prime Minister and other senior leaders in Delhi.

He said there is no compromise with respect to the special category status and castigated former chief minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu for allegedly “getting sold away to suppress this demand and be content with a special package”.
