Federal front leaders supporting Modi's Witch-hunting on his opponents?

Stoic silence prevailed after the fight of Mamatha Banerjee and Narendra Modi among the leaders of all the other states who are willing to form the federal front with Modi. YSR Congress party, which has been getting closer to Telangana Rashtra Samithi in its attempt to float a federal front at the national level, has found fault with Trinamool Congress chief and West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee for putting up an aggressive posture against the Centre.
Senior YSRCP leader, former Prakasam MP Y Subba Reddy hadn't supported the act of Mamtha Banerjee and termed it as a non-constitutional act and their party wouldn't support the Trinamool Congress. "In the entire episode during the recent developments in West Bengal, Mamata was at fault. She has violated the Constitution of India and behaved in an unjust manner. That was why we did not support her," Subba Reddy said. This YSRC leader asked that if there was no mistake with her corrupt officials and leaders what is the reason to protect them from the Central Bureau of Investigation.
Jagan hasn't taken a legitimate stand on this West Bengal issue yet even after his senior party official commented. On the other side, KCR is excited to form a federal front against Babu, has met Mamtha to extend support for the formation of the front. However, unlike YSRCP, the TRS chief at least did not make any comments against Mamata. Odisha chief minister Naveen Patnaik, who is also said to be a key partner in the federal front, did not defend the Centre, though he did not support Mamata.
