Andhra could be role model for rest of the country: CM Jagan

Published

on

Amaravati: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy chose to address head-on any concerns foreign businesses may have about investing in his 10-week old government, admitting that while the state lacked “big metros like a Hyderabad, Bengaluru or Chennai”, it offered a stable administration backed by a decisive mandate.

He was speaking at a one-day diplomatic outreach summit on Friday. It was attended by delegates from 30 countries and organised in partnership with the Ministry of External Affairs.

Reddy said his government had taken “revolutionary decisions” like renegotiating energy tariffs and introducing legislation to reserve jobs.

“The decision to renegotiate on PPAs is being seen as highly controversial. But what is the point of a PPA when discoms are not in a position to pay your bills? Discoms are crumbling,” Reddy added.

The Chief Minister also explained a bill passed last week by the state assembly to reserve 75 per cent of jobs for locals in all the industrial units in the state.

He stressed on these aspects, highlighting that with the backing of the people of the state, his government could “stand as a role model for the rest of the country”.

Rahul Gandhi YS Jagan Mohan ReddyCongress leader Rahul Gandhi is very active now in the Indian Politics. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is facing trouble with the situation in the country and unable to answer the questions raised by the people. On the other hand, Rahul Gandhi is picking up with the support of Prashant Kishore. Prashant Kishore is roping all the possible allies to form UPA-3.

YS Jaganmohan Reddy has come to power with the help of strategist Prashant Kishore. They are still in touch with regular updates. Even PK’s team members are in agreement with Sharmila in Telangana. With that intimacy, PK is trying to pull Jaganmohan Reddy to the UPA.

Mr.Jaganmohan Reddy is very cooperative with BJP. In Covid times and in other issues, he has supported Modi unconditionally, despite the discrimination shown by BJP towards Andhra Pradesh. Many opined that only because of CBI cases, Jagan’s approach towards BJP is like that.

Recently, In the Parliament YSRCP MPs are fighting with BJP for Special Category Status and Polavaram. They have participated in the protests of Visakha Steel Workers at Delhi. They are angry with the Central Government for not cooperating in sacking MP Raghurama Krishna Raju and in the proceedings of CBI Court based on the petition of MP seeking the cancellation of the bail of Jaganmohan Reddy.

Even though, the Political Circles are expecting that YS Jaganmohan Reddy will contest solely but supports BJP at the centre. On the other hand, Mr.Chandrababu Naidu is also eager to ally with BJP again. In this context, Mr.PK has made a proposal to have Jagan as an ally for Congress just like Mamata Benarjee and Shard Pawar. All these three are rebels of the Congress and founded new regional parties. But, Mr.Rahul Gandhi is reluctant at Jaganmohan Reddy saying that he is not trustworthy.
