The war of words within Andhra Pradesh Congress party is turning acrimonious with Kadapa MP, Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy directly targeting the Chief Minister, Mr K. Rosaiah.He wondered why Rosaiah was afraid of losing his chair because of his ‘odarpu yatra’. After making indirect attacks on the leadership for preventing ministers and legislators from accompanying him, Mr Jagan, as he is popularly known, launched a direct attack on the CM.
Stating that he was not after the chief minister’s post, Jagan wanted to know why Mr Rosaiah was afraid of him. “Am I here for the Odarpu yatra or for the chief minister’s post,” the young leader asked the crowd at Ranasthalam in Srikakulam district on Sunday night. “I fail to understand why the Chief Minister will lose his chair because of the yatra. I also fail to understand why they are politicising it,” he said.
