Telugu CMs Cross Swords in Public


The cash-for-vote scam is now giving raise to war of words between Telugu chief ministers. With TDP supremo Chandrababu Naidu, in the status of the chief minister, warning his arch rival KCR that the matter would be escalated in case he opens his eyes, Telangana chief minister came down vehemently and said that even God couldn’t save him.
These remarks are now becoming topic of the town. Are there any underlined meanings or warnings behind these statements? The political experts in Telugu state are saying yes!
It is known that TDP is an ally of the ruling NDA Government at the Centre. Also, key leader from TDP is serving as the union minister too. By stating that the matter would be taken way ahead, the political experts opined that Chandrababu Naidu was hinting at the apparent possibilities of taking up the matter with the Indian prime minister.
The counter of K Chandrashekara Rao stressing that even Lord couldn’t save him can be regarded that prime minister Narendra Modi will not be of any help to Chandrababu Naidu in this entire episode, added experts.
Whatever the issue is, chief ministers crossing swords in public is undoubtedly not a good sign in the democratic set up. While Chandrababu Naidu should have reacted swiftly on Revanth Reddy’s episode, K Chandrashekara Rao should have not reacted to Babu’s comments.
All in all, as home minister Rajnath Singh reportedly said, an investigation should be taken up properly at a place that’s far away from sensationalism, it would be better if KCR remain silent and let the law take its course of action.
At the end, everyone is equal before law—Rule of Law. That’s the very essence of our constitution. Be it chief minister of whosoever, they can’t bank on their posts to escape investigations or is procedures as the Indian Constitution offers no immunity for any official in the matters pertaining to crime.
