Days after Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and TDP boss N Chandrababu Naidu began bracing himself for any possible 'break-up' with BJP by making efforts to woo minorities to his party, the saffron party too has started sending indications that it has also started looking at other 'alternatives' to face any eventuality. Strengthening this argument, the BJP central leadership is understood to be keen on keeping its options open over the issue of joining hands with YSRC in the coming days. After winding up their three-day visit to the national capital, aimed at exposing the TDP's act of inducting YSRC legislators into it, some of the YSRC leaders who accompanied Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy told Express that their boss was very much satisfied over the response he got from the Union Ministers Rajnath Singh, Arun Jaitley and Dharmendra Pradhan for his 'Save Democracy' campaign.
AP Govt Attacks Centre:- Indicating that relations between allies TDP and BJP are further souring, the yellow party on Thursday openly aired its unhappiness over the way Union Home Ministers Rajnath Singh, Arun Jaitley and Dharmendra Pradhan gave an audience to YSRC chief Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy in New Delhi. Launching an attack on BJP, two key colleagues of Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, his deputy K E Krishnamurthy and Finance Minister Yanamala Ramakrishnudu, came down heavily on the Centre for allowing Jagan to distribute a book brought out by YSRC levelling corruption allegations against the TDP government. “It is not appropriate for Union ministers and Delhi leaders to give an audience to Jagan, who is accused No. 1 in 12 cases relating to financial fraud. If leaders in the Central government encourage people like Jagan, this would send bad signals to people,” Ramakrishnudu charged. Joining the chorus, Deputy Chief Minister K E Krishnamurthy wondered how the Union Ministers could meet “a man like Jagan, who is facing corruption charges.”
