Minister Atchannaidu ridicules Jagan’s BJP chant due to fear of landing in jail

Thursday, January 25, 2018

Minister for BC Welfare K.Atchannaidu today took serious exception to YSRCP chief Jagan Reddy’s decision to support the BJP at the Centre if it accorded Special Category Status to the State.

He said that it was due not due to any love for the party but out of fear of landing in jail. Speaking at the TDP’s constituency level review meeting here, he ridiculed Jagan ‘The SCS issued did not come to his mind during the President and Vice-President elections, when he extended unconditional support to the Centre. But he talks about it now, he said. It is nothing short of selfishness, he said.

Meanwhile Deputy Chief Minister K.E.Krishna Murty said that Jagan lacked consistency in thoughts. He wondered how a person who had criticised the BJP could now surrender to it. Jagan would never become the Chief Minister, he said.
