The other day when YS Jagan openly promised to ban liquor, it became a big joke in political circles of the two states. Jagan's amateurish statement led people to troll him on social networking sites. Political analysts too found it illogical. Now Jagan waged war against the state government over the bauxite mining in Visakhapatnam. Holding a public meeting in Chintapalli of Vizag against the bauxite mining on Thursday, Jagan slammed AP CM Chandrababu Naidu and his government for giving permissions to bauxite mining.
But what's shocking many is that the same decisions were also taken by the CM and father of Jagan Reddy, YS Rajasekhar Reddy. During the regime of late YSR, the liquor business grew manifold, touched new heights and numbers were all-time high then. YSR also gave permission to rampant bauxite mining during his tenure. It's YSR who made liquor, mining as two major revenue sources for the state. Now when Jagan is opposing his father's own policies, the big question is why he remained silent when his father was CM and doing the same?
