Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy finally started touring the flood-affected areas in Konaseema. The CM’s tour happened after the Opposition leader’s tour.
The tour has happened only because the ruling party does not want to lose the political mileage to the Opposition and also there is criticism of the government due to the lack of proper help to the victims.
The Chief Minister went on to say – “I am not up to doing politics during a calamity. If I come at that time, the official machinery would be busy with me and ignore the relief work. I would have appeared nicely on TV but I don’t want to do such dramas”.
What the Chief Minister said is pleasing to ears but the Chief Minister conveniently forgot what he said in the Opposition.
As the Opposition leader, Jagan went to the victims of the Titli cyclone and made severe comments about the then Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu not touring the flood-affected areas and only getting confined to aerial surveys.
“Jagan is an opportunist. Be in Opposition or in the ruling, he is confined to only doing political dramas,” TDP is alleging circulating the videos of Jagan then.
