“I Was An Honourable Man Until My Father Was Alive”: Jagan Mohan Reddy Tells NDTV

GUNTUR: YSR Congress leader Jagan Mohan Reddy on Monday said he was a “respectable man” till the passing of his dad YS Rajasekhara Reddy, showing that his split with the Congress after his dad’s demise was the motivation behind why he was blamed in handfuls for debasement cases.

In light of an inquiry on the pending debasement bodies of evidence recorded against him over the previous decade, Mr Reddy told NDTV, “I was a respectable man until the point that my dad was alive, my dad was likewise a fair man until the point that he was alive as the main priest of Andhra Pradesh”.

Mr Reddy split far from the Congress and framed his own gathering in 2009 after his dad, at that point Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, kicked the bucket in a helicopter crash. He said the cases, documented when the Congress-drove UPA was in control at the Center, were “politically propelled”. The candidates, he stated, were “Congress and TDP lawmakers”.

Mr Reddy was addressing NDTV amid a foot walk to request “exceptional status” for Andhra Pradesh – something he asserts Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu – a NDA partner – has neglected to convey.

A week ago, Mr Naidu’s decision Telugu Desam Party or TDP hauled its two priests out of the focal government over the “exceptional status” request.

The collusion with NDA had been conveyed to the verge after Union Minister Arun Jaitley turned down the request refering to that the plan was rejected by the fourteenth Finance Commission for all states aside from those in upper east and the slope states.

While Mr Naidu undermined to haul out of the NDA, the delay since has pushed commentators to state that the pull of war with the Center over the unique class request was an activity in optics implied for voters in the state, since Jagan Mohan Reddy is being viewed as championing the reason. Mr Reddy has been vocal on the issue and has even challenged Mr Naidu to haul out of the NDA in the event that he was earnest about the request.
