Is Andhra Pradesh CM 'Anna' or 'Dhunna'?: YS Jagan
Political heat waves started striking the Andhra Pradesh as the leaders are seen on full-swing campaigning for their respective parties. The leaders even started making controversial statements on their opponents to bag votes. On this note, Samara Shankaravam held in Nellore has witnessed another level of criticism from YSRCP Chief YS Jagan on Andhra Pradesh CM Chandrababu Naidu.
Like never before, Jagan has brought NTR into his comments taking the political scenarios in 1983. "When NTR entered into active politics, citizen welfare is his only motto. He announced kilo rice for Rs 2 which was copied by many other fellow states. CM Vijaya Bhaskar Reddy, NTR’s counterpart, tried to challenge the promise made by NTR and has announced rice for Rs 1.90 a kilo. But people can sense where the real welfare is and voted down Vijaya Bhaskar Reddy. The same scene is going to repeat with Chandrababu Naidu who will soon face rejection,” said Jagan.
He also talked about the Anganwadi workers who are supposed to be the vote bank for the ruling party. “We have seen Anganwadi & Asha workers, VRAs and Home Guards who protested for their wage hikes over the last four and half years. The government never gave them an ear and all of sudden as elections are falling by, Chandrababu Naidu had announced the increase of wages to all of them that too very less," noted Jagan
Jagan then questioned the gathering about what do we call a person who starves the people of its state for 57 months and then comes to the rescue in last 3 months, ‘Anna’ or ‘Dhunna’?
Though his satirical statements received an applause from the crowd, they however heated up the situations. Will Jagan continue his campaigning in the same note?
