Andhra Jyothy Radhakrishna carrying his legacy of backing TDP

To believe why Eenadu group chairman Ch Ramoji Rao has to oppose YSRCP president and AP CM YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. There seems to be a reason. Eenadu played a major role in its victory in 1983 elections because of two factors. Ramoji Rao belongs to the same caste of NTR. And he had also opposed the Congress party when legendary actor NT Rama Rao established TDP.

With his policy, even after the death of NTR and emergence of Chandrababu Naidu as the TDP chief. He kept supporting the TDP party since YS Rajasekhar Reddy brought the Congress party to victory by defeating the TDP in 2004. Eenadu continued its rivalry with Jagan, though he parted ways with congress. Because Jagan has carried the legacy of YSR.

As Jagan’s father had created troubles for Ramoji Rao in Margadarshi and other financial issues. He seems to have a score to settle with Jagan. Andhrajyothi is the only other newspaper oppose Congress party in the past and YSRCP now. This has taken over by journalist-turned-entrepreneur Vemuri Radhakrishna.

Radhakrishna has no such ideological differences with YSR or Jagan like Ramoji Rao. He was an out-and-out anti-Congressman. There is no other reason for Radhakrishna to oppose YSR in the past. And Jagan in particular, except the fact that Radhakrishna is also a Kamma, which has a traditional rivalry with the Congress party.
