Vanishing dream, of a Golden AP, as was seen by its people, under YSR. Whom to blame ?

January 9, 2010 4 comments

The HM has asked the Chief Minsiter to speed up the probe on the Helicopter Crash in which the most loved and tall leader of Congress and CM lost his life to be speeded up. The intentions and the motive of the channle which gave a irresponsible and malacious false, cooked up, news involving Ambanis should be probed, and a finding on who is intending to damgae the interests of the state to be found.

Has baseless, malicious comments by a TV Channel alleged involvement of Ambani’s, added as a catalyst to the frustrated political activist who did not get any result from Jan 5th All Party meeting with the Home Minister P Chidambaram. 

Issues need to be addressed with fair intentions and clear talk, with great amount of transparency. Delaying and keeping the matter in to a cold freezer is not an option which a bold, result oriented society would expect from the governing body of the time. 

The nation has bigger challenges ahead of it. The state of Andhra Pradesh has seen great positive growth in past decade both the period the TDP got lead by Chandrababu Naidu and Congress govt.  Lead by the leader of the masses and the needy Y S Rajsherker Reddy, who unfortunately could not get the lease of life from the master of our life’s God Almighty. He lived his life king size and served the people of Andhra Pradesh in best of his capabilities, in the time he got to serve them.

The state became an attractive destination of hundreds of multinational companies and business houses of the our nation, both in the times of TDP and YSR lead Congress, the beauty of YSR was he did not reject the policies of the earlier govt of Chandrababu instead he took it as challenge in positive sense to excel and do better than Chandrababu Naidu.

  The advantage in the approach of  YSR was he was doing good and achieving  goals set  both rural and urban AP,  taking along the infrastructure, agricultural, power, welfare, health, administrative, poor, corporate, and the minorities hand in hand it was a magical term he lead.

Which won him and congress the 2009 general elections, and soon the dreadful thing happened to the state of AP, the loss of YSR in an Accident in Nalamala Hills of a fateful rainy day, that had come after a severe drought and harsh summer where in prayers was the order of the day for rains, as the cattle was starving for water and rivers were soaked with no drop of water.

Since the day he is gone nothing went well with AP, there were protests and dissidents in the congress party over the demand of a group in the congress supporting son of YSR, Jangan Mohan Reddy as the CM, state saw violence, burning of placards of Sonia Gandhi, in spite of appeals to calm down from Jagan the unrest, and non co-operation of Ministers and the party leaders with the new Chief Minister continued.

 In the midst of all this state was stuck with drought in many Districts, due to late monsoon, the nature’s fury struck it again in the form of Floods in Parts of Rayalseems, effecting most Kurnool, Alampur, Mahboobnagar, Vijyawada, and few other districts of coastal Andhra the rain was worst since 100 years, killing hundreds, and displaced lakhs, with cities like Kurnool submerged, and hundreds of villages drowned.  

Before even the sludge and clean up of the damage could be dried and life coming back to normal for the flood effected victims in laths in AP, and still the not very efficient relief work in its advance stages, an issue with people some thought is settled, stuck hard in the form of Telangana agitation, by KCR, and his party TRS, KCR, started his hunger strike demanding separate Telangana, in the last week of Nov. 2009.

The agitation got the momentum from the student organizations joining him in his protest and demand for a separate state of Telangana, a demand by the region for over 40 years now, with no respite, some blame the unequal and biased treatment by the rich Costal Andhra bearcats and officials who took the opportunity away from the local residents in the Telanaga dist.

Both regions Telangana and Rayaleema are behind in the representation in govt department on higher positions, and progress on development works and projects when compared to the coastal Andhra region, which once was part of Madras, sarkar districts, before it joined with Telangana to form a great Telugu State, in 1956.  

Otherwise  very calm people in the region got restless and violent  agitative mob on the news of  falling health due to hunger strike by KCR, took to  violence and disturbed the normal life in the city of Hyderabad which otherwise a peaceful and vibrant home for many people from all over the country.

On the eve of 9th Dec 2010 late night a statement on taking forward the formation of Telangana was made by  Home Minster which gave the Telangana People the most expected happiness and joy, on the other hand it triggered agitation in Andhra and Rayalseeema demanding United Andhra, with violent protests and all sorts of scenes by people like Lagapati Rajbgoapal.  Then the H M again in the wake of out bust and burning of AP with sentiments reversed his 9th Dec decision, and called for a wide-ranging consensus on the matter of Tealngana.

The tempers reached to greater ripples, and violence, and bands, and agitations, disturbing the education, business, and normal life in the state.  Then came the announcement of the 5 Jan meeting of all parties to discuss on the issue which also resulted in anticlimax not satisfy both the pro and anti Telangana groups in all the political parties which by now are broken houses with leaders not knowing where they stand as already most of the legislative and parliament members resigned and their resignation pending on the desk of the speaker in AP. AP as become a no party no leader state by this time.  The command and tact of the UPA govt is in command miraculously. 

After all trouble AP has gone thru, an irresponsible and a malicious, news of Ambani’s involvement in conspiring to kill YSR by Telugu Channel on 7th of Jan, which erupted huge reaction by the followers of YSR and hurt the sentiments of the people of AP once again, this is horrific and most damaging and hurting to the people of AP.

This will hurt further the state business community, and hinder the process of consensus and formation a committee to reach to a peaceful solution to the issue of Telangana.   Running by a Telugu Channel is acting a last dump to dump the pride, respect, opportunity, and positive energy the state enjoyed just few month back when YSR, was in command. And people of AP where happy and enjoying the fruits of governance by the Congress govt lead by YSR, under the guidance of his leader and mentor Sonia Gandhi and able PM Manmohan Singh. 

God help AP, Telangana, Andhra, and Rayalseema, and relief the state from further damage, and let the wisdom prevail, in all of us, to sort out our problems, with reasoning and respectfully with grace Amin.

First Meeting of Junior YSR Jagan with Sonia Gandhi.

Jagan Mohan Reddy in Delhi, met High Command, Much depends on this meeting, how the state of AP takes final call post Assembly Elections which gave Congress Victory.

Jagan Mohan Reddy in Delhi, met High Command, Much depends on this meeting, how the state of AP takes final call post Assembly Elections which gave Congress Victory.

 Jagan said  Sonia said. “Leave it to me  Jagan, I will take care of You”

Jaganmohan Reddy, son of late Y.S.Rajasekhar Reddy after meeting Congress President Sonia Gandhi at her residence in New Delhi on Thursday. Said,

After his one-hour meeting with her, Jaganmohan shared,

 “I have been assured that my interests will be looked into, I will strengthen the party and I am with Sonia Gandhi and the party.”

There is little doubt about what’s on his agenda. Jaganmohan is accompanied by Ramachandra Rao, who was close to YSR Reddy, and is the man behind the Jagan-for-Chief Minister Campaign.  

In the meeting with Sonia the Congress leader Ahmed Patel was present too. Jagan also met Veerappa Moily Congress leader incharge for AP.

He met  Congress President Sonia Gandhi at her residence here amid demands by his supporters to make him chief minister of Andhra Pradesh.

 This is the first visit of Mr. Jaganmohan to the national capital after the death of his father in a helicopter crash.

The meeting between Ms. Gandhi and Mr. Jaganmohan lasted for over an hour but he refused to comment on what was discussed between the two.

On Wednesday, the 37-year-old first-time MP from Kadapa had sought an appointment with the Congress President.

His supporters must have kept there fingures crossed to know the out come of the meeting.  YSR son the MP is contender for the Post of CM in AP which the High command kept in indecisive mode due to Assembly Elections in States of Maharastra, Arunchal and Haryana.

How the Highcomnad moves now is to be seen the chances are bright for Jagan and he has to be given a greater role in the state politics, head the state as CM or help the Congress at the Centre  as the Central Minsiter will be known oon.

State needs dynamic leadership and comitted leader so does the centre.  We need to know how Sonia Gandhi will move in the direction of giving final view on future of  Jagan Mohan Reddy, and his supports from AP.

Jagan with the press

His interaction with the Press out side the Residence of Sonia Gandhi, revealed  Jagan Mohan Reddy has given an impression of a obident worker of Congress Party and he expressed he has faith in her and she will do the best and he will abide by her decision.

However when asked to comment of  the possibiility of him projected as CM and the talk about his claim he tactfully with great humility avoided the question with no clear answer.

He said speculative talks will not be good was the impression Jagan gave to the media.

 Tactful Moves Saw Congress in Drivers Seat in 2009

Nation showed signs Congress Emerging as a Party which now can develop the lost grounds in sates like ,UP, Tamil Naidu, Karnataka, Gujarat, and Bihar, Madhya Pradesh
 
After successful campaign which saw the Congress and its allies in UPA put breaks on the Saffron Brigade and silencing the accusations of the Main Opposition Party BJP on Dr. Manmohan Singh as ineffective Prime Minister, taking all his dictates from the Cong President Sonia Gandhi. Reducing the authority and dignity of post of PM. With the Ballots. And

Rahul Gandhi’s handling of UP Politics, and The way allies of UPA like Lalu Parsad, who lost face due there adamant stand on seat sharing. And leaders like Sharad Pawar loosing the shine in there strong holds, gave rise to a very aggressive political mane ours on the part of its leader Sonia Gandhi. Bouncing back to power in Kerala in the form of Sahshi Taroor a face from young, corporate congress with room for greater transparency and effective governance, and niche.

Congress Consolidating and BJP Fizzling Out.
 
While BJP was busy sorting out egos of senior leaders like Rajnath sing and Arun jaitli and Shushma Swaraj and Venkiah Naidus. Congress was making intelligent alliances and stretching the relations with its allies where it mattered and breaking allies where it did not matter, ruthlessly.
 
Allies Relations on Merits  
DMK was kept dear, Lalu rejected, Amar Singh and Mulayam tactfully pulled in to the net, Farooq and Omar kept as family, giving greater authority to Rajsheker Redddy Govt in AP to run the state politics, Pushing an effective alliance with Mamata Benerjee. and saying good bye with a smile to left by signing the Nuclear Deal with US. And handling the North Star Rajstan riding on the mistakes of BJP Rajesindia Govt Failures, and Cashing the Delhi Shiela Govt. Achievements.

Security & Terrorism did not go Ballot Boxes, The issues were, Development and Secular Credentials and Inclusive Nation

Security was a Major issue, which reached its peek with the attack on Mumbai by Paskistan based terror organizations proving the master minds in them exposed the govts inefficiency, brought pain and agony to the hundreds and insecurity at its lowest in the Country the Common People feared.

Series of accusations and counter accusations by the media, people, opposition and international bodies concluded terror was an international issue and it is collective responsibility of the world nations to fight this menace. The people did not take the issue to the ballot boxes. But still the threat of  Terror has not subsided either in our neighbouring nations nor in our nation nor in other parts of the world, the war against terror by the world is in active mode with Obama admins. doing most in Afgahnistan and India, and US moving to find solutions to curb terror.  

They the People of India,  had greater issues in mind like development, jobs, infrastructure, education, farmer protection to unfriendly monsoons, rising prices commodities, power, health, and development of Backward and Minorities. And good governance, polarization on the lines of religon was matter of past, hopefully it will remain so.

Minorities see Hope in Rahul like they see in Dr. Singh
 
Sachar Committee Recommendations still pending with the congress in spite willingness of Dr. Manmohan Singh the Minorities still in a state of confusion, wanted to go with congress in anticipation that a stronger congress will find it comfortable to implement the Sachar Committee Recommendation in the term to come. Muslims saw Manmohan Singh a Friend and himself a member of Minority Community a better person to understand them. The Minorities is very closly watch the actions and the performance of UPA govt and the measures the govt is taking specially the signals coming out of Kapil Sibal”s office sound encouraging on the Educational policy for the Muslim Madrasas and govt. move to bring in the Disadvantaged in  Muslim comunity in to the Main Strem too.
 
Minorities Remember the Let Down by Congress too.
 
Rahul and Sonia are linage of the party Minorities been loyal since ages barring the Failure of Narsima Rao Govt to protect Babri Masjid when Muslims wanted to punish Congress. Congress will hold them very close to chest.
 
The Dalit Vote Bank shift from BSP and Caste Based Political Parties, Sign of Greater Strenght to Congress in Coming years.

Backward classes who were kept content with slogans rather than real development and economic relief by the BSP Mayawat Party in UP and few other states., and Mulayam joining hands with leaders like Kalyan Singh distanced Muslims in UP. Added to advantage congress

The lower repesentations of Muslims in Parliament in the Assemblies is of great concern to the Muslims. there has to be a good measure to moves to give the right political measure to them, by enforecing few measures like political comforting areas and pocket asssigned for them.

In all People of India saw able PM in Dr. Singh, and Efficient Leader in Sonia Gandhi, and Hope and confidence in Rahul Gandhi to build the legacy of the able Leaders of Congress in the Past on his own metal not just as a member of Gandhi Family this is what is going to make the difference in 2014 Elections

Rahul Eyes 2014.
 
The Series of Moves in Recent times indicate the Focus of Rahul Gandhi and the Congress High Command and an Eye on 2014 for Rahul Gandhi. Weather it is austerity move, travel by train to Ludhiana to address a youth rally, or rebuilding of Youth Congress in Tamil Naidu. Or Fitness Training in confines of 10 Janpath, Speaking about the poorest and meeting them in there huts with true care and concern for the needy in the Country surely the Eyes on 2014.
 
And Tragic Death of most trusted and strongest support in the South the late Rajsheker Reddy and his popular image with the minoritis and the poor, changing senario in wake of flaws in infrastructural projects governance by Shiela Dixit Govt. The polls showing signs of Modi still a force in Gujrat, and BJP with RSS coming to its support and diminishing the authority of BJP. How the years will unfold in a Economical Recession still bothering. We need to watch how the pages of history will unfold for Rahul and we the people of India.

We will explore this and more in next part in our series of Rahul Eyes 2014

Part 2 ( In series on Rahul Gandhi Eyes 2014 )

Is, The Hand of Congress gestureing Blessing for Jagan. Hopfully. With, The Prayers of Millions and Goodness of YSR, the Enterpenuer in Him, may help Jagan Mohan Reddy to be Blessed as CM By Sonia Gandhi.

Veeraappa Moily praise and playing down the indicipline terming it to be a feel of a orphaned state of AP on loss of there  brother, most trusted, and loved leader Y S Rajsheker Reddy, comes as a indicator that the Prayers of Millions and Aspirations of the People of Andrha Pradesh are alive and ther is now a growing possiblity of Jagan Mohan Reddy become the Regular CM of A P .

The time frame may be a difficult thing to speculate and gauge. But yes there is good positive signal coming out of the incharge of AP Veerappa Moily. How and the norms, and condtions this will come thru is to see in coming days and weeks.. hopefully soon.

when asked by CNN ibn, senior reporter, Pallavi Gosh Moily replied : When the state feels orphaned they look for some one who can come to their rescue. In that emotional upsurge they propose some body. You can’t call it lobby as such. Ultimately whatever decisions we take… it will be in the best interest of the state of Andhra.speaking futherer Mr. Moily went ahead praising Jagan Mohan Reddy for this sucess as a Enterpreneur,  

This Smile will help the millions of people of AP to make the dreams  of YSR a Reality, given a Chance.

This Smile will help the millions of people of AP to make the dreams of YSR a Reality, given a Chance.

Mr. Moily said, I have seen his work and he is a very successful entrepreneur, very successful person who launched his own newspaper and news channel.Pallavi asked him The Congress party has often been criticised for being a dynastic party… that only dynasty rules. There is a fear that if Jagan Mohan Reddy is made the Chief Minister then similar demands can come from elsewhere for example Haryana or Delhi. You have the chief ministers’ sons also in the same profession. Do you think it will open up a Pandora’s Box?

Do feel somewhere down the line that those scenes just 24 hours after YSR’s death, the support for Jagan Mohan Reddy was in good taste?

Moily: Quickly replied by putting to rest on by diluteing the issue by refering to conditional, and situational analisis of the situaltional stands. Mr. Mouli said.


” This kind of word or coining the word like dynasty depends from state to state, case to case. The situation of Andra is incomparable.” This answer of his give full marks to Sonai and her leadership qualities and the able team which know and is seasoned in handling cirisis with control and paitience. Three Cheers for Sonia and her Leadership and admistrative skills.
 

This news shuld be taken with great clam, and with great suttleness, mainting the dignity of the poeple of the state and the wisdom we are know for and the loyaltiy we as a state have expressed for decades to the Congress Party and Integration of Nation.

Jagan will be calm like always and will, and the state, and its people should keep the fingures crossed to see there leader and near saint deprated leader Rajshkerker Reddy’s Son Jagan Mohan Reddy as CM to shoulder the legacy of YSR and excile in fulfilling the dreams seen by YSR for a prosperous, caring, and suport to the nation, AP.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Media Picture on Andhra CM is un clear, KVP Ramchander Rao key campaigner for Jagan as CM , takes Centre Stage, meets High Comand.

September 10, 2009 1 comment
KVP Ramchander Rao, Advisor of YSR and now Emisary of Jagan.  A college mate and a low profle person,  Post YSR has taken the cenrte stage, in state Politics, a MP from AP.

KVP Ramchander Rao, Advisor of YSR and now Emisary of Jagan. A college mate and a low profle person, Post YSR has taken the cenrte stage, in state Politics, a MP from AP.

The papers in the city of Hydrabad are  full of  not so decent picture of the way the sate has responded to the wish of Jagan  Mohan Reddy,  in his  Appeal to the Congressmen,  couple of days back in which he requested them to honour the word of the high comman and he had ful faith in Mrs. Sonia Gandhi he wanted them to wait for her decision and abide by it too. 

And on the other hand the high command gave clear signals that indipline will not be tolerated yet … yet… the media is full of  stories of indicipline and disrespect

The Papers give a very confilting and grim picture of the states, affairs.

Leading English Dailly Papers carry head lines like.

 

 

“Ministers rufuse to attent CM meets”    “Ministers N Raghuveera Reddy and Jupalli Krishna Rao did not attend

important meetings convened by Rosaish”  In news ” Mr Danam Nagender kept the CM waiting 20 Minutes” ”

Meanwhile Mr. Rosaiah will not clear improtant files until he gets a nod from the high command.”  ” Mr. Raghuveera

Reddyattanded a condolence meeting in his district on Tuesday but skipped the meeting on release of water for the

second crop undr Nagarjunasagar Dam”   as  reported in the news,  wtritten by B Krishna Prasad of Deccan

Chronicle dated 10th September 2009.

The other English Daily  The Hindu claims,    “lobbying for Jagan Continues” the paper reported  ” Veerappa Moily said

that no decision had been taken on the issue of making Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy Chief Minister even as YSR advisor K V

P Ramchandra Rao met PM  was  in the Capital on Wednesday ”  the paper says ” Congress leaders in state are waiting  

in Hyd are eagerly for  the AICC ‘s word on Leadership issue ”

The Times of India  Hyderabad addition “Mantris shun CM Rosaiah” the paper also read ” A non-coperation movement

has begun in the corridors of power in Hyderabad. Most ministers of the newly sworn in Rosaiah government are

refusing to attenx office and steering clear of review meetings called by the new chief minister. The only saving grace

for CM is that officials are working as usual. ”   ” The only political functionary attneding office is Rosaiah himself. I

have never seen anything of this kind ever before”  was said by a civil servic e, officer according to the times of india.

as reported on 10 th of sept 2009.

the New Indian Express  reported  “GADDI SOLUTION : MAKE RAHUL GANDHI  AP CM” and Jagan could be Deputy

CM, says citizens organisation.”  the paper writes futher  while the high comand is taking time an organization “AIEBCO

announce that AICC general Secretary Rahul Gandhi would be the apt choice for the role of Chief Minister of A P” and

“Jagan should be Deputy C M of the state keeping in mind his popularity” the organization sending a mail to high

command listing its sujesstions.

 In the midest of all this the is news  comng in  ..  the times of india says  ” The High command is considering Union HRD

Minister of State D Purndeswari as a Possible CM. Her name cropped up in the talks that congress president Sonia

Gandhi had with Jagan Emissary KVP Ramchadra Rao on Tuesday” reported the times of india on 10th of sept 2009

today.  This is not it   the paper goes ahead and wtites ” Purnadeswari is reportedly backed by none other than AICC

genrEal secretary Rahul Gandhi, but many familiar with AP politics claim such a move would be disastrous for the

Congress.  It reads it may trigger revolt. .. as per the times of india.

What will the common man of AP expect in the way the things look as per the reporting and the news coming out

of the circles of power both in the Cenre and the State.

As reported by me earlier  Article  on the same blog, saying the Clouds are Clearing on the issue of Sucession of  YSR it looks the 

Cyclonic Effect is still on.

This is turning out to be  chanllenge  for, Congress Party.  Under  Leader  Mrs. Sonia Gandhi,  to

sail thru, with  no Damage in the troubled sea of events that are unfolding.  Mrs Sonia Gandhi will with

her able advisor and state leaders will over come this termoil and the The Ship Congress will emrege

stronger with this episode too.

Will the Prayers of Millions help YSR’s son Jagan Declared as CM by Sonia Gandhi.

Will Sonia Gandhi accept Jagan as Shadow of YSR and Capable Loyal Worker of Congress Party or,  Will The Present CM Interm be a Man to Groom Jagan ultimately to the Post of CM in Couple of Years Then to Fight 2014 Elections to Sweep Congress to Power third time again under Jagan. or There will be a Dark horse in the form of Jaipal Reddy.

Will Sonia Gandhi accept Jagan as Shadow of YSR and Capable Loyal Worker of Congress Party or, Will The Present CM Interm be a Man to Groom Jagan ultimately to the Post of CM in Couple of Years Then to Fight 2014 Elections to Sweep Congress to Power third time again under Jagan. or There will be a Dark horse in the form of Jaipal Reddy.

Gradullay the leaders are settling after the weeklong moring follwing the tragic departure of  Rajsheker Reddy the AP C M in misterious and tragic conditions, with a probe ordered for investigation in the Crashi of Helicopter by the A P
Govt Home Minister, the political focus is gradually pointing towads how the High Command will fially resolve the Andhra CM Selction.

 There is a meeting on 10 th of Sept of the A P Legislative Party for this matter. The Quetion is will The Son of YSR be there Choice ? Or there will be a shift from the stand they have taken earlier this is to be seen with great anxiety.

There is a general opinion in the intelectual and political circles of the Capital of A P Hyderabad that, congress Leadership is Commanding the full Control on the States and the Cenral Politic of the leader ship of Smt Sonia Gandhi.

And she has a very firm decission makeing capability and her decission are well thought can not be challenged as  her type of governace and administration of running the party is one that is supported by the politics of cosenses and reasoning leaving no room for resent and discomfort. 

 Hope this time too the Sonia Gandhi Magic will Prevail.

Rosaiah has been in power for less than a week. He was sworn in after YS R Reddy died in a helicopter crash. There is a proposal to allow Rosaiah to continue a little longer, induct Jagan as deputy chief minister under Rosaiah, and then promote him in a year or two after he gains more experience.

But But.. there is this to consider too,  A Chief Minister from Coastal Andhra and a Deputy CM from Rayalseema could fuel the separatist Telangana movement that YSR managed to quell.

Where as the supporters of  Jagan Mohan Reddy YSJ   hold this  firmly they say  “We have only a one-point agenda before the Cabinet. To make Jagan the leader of the Congress Legislature Party.”

Most of these ministers and MLAs were hand-picked by YSR. Support for Jagan is not an issue of loyalty alone, it also involves political survival. The fear in them is how will it be possible for them if there is a change in linage of  control at the top in A P, there loyalty in turn brings them political security and blessings too. Will they be able to survie the  regional brunt and new forces in the party which will try to supress the present. The have not way but to Support Jagan.

The Minorities too are keen to see son of  YSR as CM, they are not going to agitate and embarass the Party and its leaders but are quitly praying in the isolation of there minds in the month of Ramadan to  Allah For Congress Party and   to give  Sonai Gandhi  that she be blessed by Allah to take the decision which is good for the state as only God only Knows what is right  choice the state.

And what, will be good for the poor, downtrodden, the minoriites, and betterment of the state, in general YSR was also sent to serve the peopel of the State by God he did his good work now we should pray that the person who takes the reins will be a selected one by God Almighty too.

But the Congress high command in Delhi worries that Jagan is young, raw and may not be able to fight factionalism within his party. The man currently in the hot seat, Rosiah, makes it clear that the final call will be made in Delhi.

“Everyone will have their own opinion. The Congress leadership, Sonia Gandhi, will decide based on many factors.”

Hope the Cloud will be cleared fully and A P Gets its New leader.

The Clouds Clearing, over Succession of YSR.

supporters of jagan displaying placards in his support, jagan disapproved all actions of his supporters and appealed for restrain and maintian party dicipline

supporters of jagan displaying placards in his support, jagan disapproved all actions of his supporters and appealed for restrain and maintian party dicipline

Following Jagan’s statement. “I request you to await the decision of Smt Sonia Gandhi, President, and AICC on the issue of leadership and also urge you to abide the decision”  

Yet , The Disturbing Developments of past week Demand Answers to  Many Disturbing Questions.

From the time Dr, Rajsheker Reddy’s Helicopter was missing, in  Forests of Nalamala followed by his death in Helicopter Accident.  There was a unpleasant,  indiscipline, revolt and  peculier urgency  in statemets and actions of many  Congress leaders, MLA’S and MP’s.   It  reminds me of the type of unruly moments for allotment of  Assembly and  Parliamentary B form for,  2004 General Elections under President     D, Srinivas. 

Efforts of Late Y S Rajsheker Reddy  after years of hard work and confidence building had disciplined the party cadre, and its leaders. To maintain, regard and respect for leadership of the Party. Abruptly, reasons known to those who for no reason and gain have earned bad taste for  party since the news of Late Rajsheker Reddy Missing with Helicopter came.

The Party as was written in my earlier article “Jagan Mohan the Right Choice for the Post of CM” couple of days back,  is observant to the developments and will deal with indiscipline in the party at a proper time.  I am sure a fitting  action for causing embracement, disrespecting in the hours of grief shall be administered on the guilty.

 This group of Congess men enacted,  series of acts, like

 1. Disrespecting  the Interim Chief Minister Mr. Roshaih. And Refusing to accept him as authority over them. Even before he took the oath.  

 2.  Resorted to Slogan Shouting,  attempted Dharnas and Placard agitative representation, 

 3.  Run signature campaigns,  pleadging support to Janagn Mohan Reddy. As CM.

 4.   Airing unwillingness to take  re-oath of office of Minister,  As constitutional      requirement under the Interim Chief Minister, Mr. Roshiah

I am surprised how they came to understand that the party lead by Sonia Gandhi is having a which is having zero tolerance for indiscipline can not take notice of these acts of indicipline and damage to the Interest of the Party.

 They all forgot  and Mrs Sonia has  very fine ways of sidelining such congressmen who bring direct, disregard to the party and its leadership.

 As if all this is not sufficient they took the wildest step by Approaching Chiranjeevi for support.

 The Group Approached a rival party lead Praja Rajayam of  Chiranjeevi,  asking for his help in filling numbers in the event of failing to sustain the majority by the split group from Congress in Assembly.  This is wildest and the worst thought which, amounted to not just split but the to reduce the Indian National Congress in A P to a mere minority.  

 Fearful and destructive Idea to the cause damage to the party.

It will be  interesting to observe the action and the measures high command of congress will take under the leadership of Mrs. Sonia Gandhi.   Conspiracy was engineered in the style that was engineered by Chnadra Babu Naidu on his Father in law N T R. Hope the intensity of wildness of thought is measured to full scale and a doze is formulated to cleanse the party from such evil minds at the earliest. 

Thankfully Jagan had the wisdom to smell the magnitude  of damage this was causing he, acted just in time before  further damage happened.  The Evil Brains fpimd the time ripe in the first few days thinking all are in sorrow and trying to come to terms with the grief in loss of YSR history books are full of such conspiracies. Very fortunately Congress is possibly will do the damage control

The following words by Jagan Mohan Reddy should do the magic safe Jagan the Congress Party, legacy of YSR and the Congress Leader ship the required relief.  Jagan acted the moment he was able to after the ceremonies followed by death of YSR still in grief the Man in Jagan acted to do the damage Control.

 Jagan Said

I request you to await the decision of Smt Sonia Gandhi, President, and AICC on the issue of leadership and also urge you to abide the decision. Our beloved leader and President of AICC, Smt Sonia Gandhi ji will take a decision in such a way that Dr Rajasekhara Reddy’s ideals, mission and zeal would not be compromised in any manner. I humbly appeal to you to be strong and courageous; I am with you in these trying times, just as you are with me. (Y S Jaganmohan Reddy)

The distractors will get isolated 

As the drama was enacted in Hyderabad over sucession and oath taking of Ministers the Air In Delhi High Comand Party is keenly watch the events of last few days to act accordingly.

 The Air in Congress High command still of discomfort with what happened in past few days in A P.  Hope the President Sonia Gandhi and her loyal and able litenetents , will set things right soon.

State incharge  Mr. Mouli need to scratch the dust off and lift the curtain to see what conspired behind the curtains. Was this a conspiracy against Jagan, or was it to benefit rivals, or damage congress party in state, in all cases the looser would be the common man the people of the state of Andhra.

If the agitative demanding style had continued the damage would have come unforturantely on the shoulders of Jagan as this would give room for misunderstanding between the party and the YSR family. Jagan’s appeal to the congressmen came to clear the clouds.  All this excercise had left a very bad taste and some way or the other has not helped any one.

Sonia Gandhi is a seasoned respectable and very shrewed politician helped by team of advisors they know the job best. Jagan’s respect for Sonia ji is remarkable, like wise Mr. Gandhi knows what is best in the interest of the State and its people. The State and the people will well come the decision of Soniaji and the destractors will not get the last laugh.

2014 Congress will sweep the Elections under  Jagan Mohan Reddy  as CM Canditate.

The possibility is it could be 

front Runner  Jagan Mohan Reddy will be declared as the CM, as first choice,

the Second in line should be Mr Jaipal Reddy a very deserving and a highly respected and man with intigrity can be brought in for couple of years till Jagan is groomed,

and lastly it could be  Mr. Roshiah  the interm CM may be asked to continue for couple of years and groom Jagan and set him for 2014 as Canditate for C M and sweep the Elections for Congress. 

Only Time will speak let us hope for the best will come to A P and Its people and the legacy of YSR lives for long long time.

Jagan took the first step right by giving a statement to put and end to the bickering in the party, like father like son,  He has shown that he is a loyalist like his father YSR.  He should make sure the Disidents are sidelined, as indicipline will kill the party.

Jagan took the first step right by giving a statement to put and end to the bickering in the party, like father like son, He has shown that he is a loyalist like his father YSR. He should make sure the Disidents are sidelined, as indicipline will kill the party.

Following is the full text of a 4-page appeal by YS Reddy’s son Jagan Mohan Reddy asking his supporters to show restraint and abide by the decision of party chief Sonia Gandhi on the issue of leadership in Andhra Pradesh.

My mother Smt Vijayalakshmi, my sister Smt Sharmila and our other family members join me in conveying our deepest sense of gratitude to millions of people who have shared our sorrow and grief in this hour of greatest tragedy in the passing away of my illustrious father, Dr Y S Rajasekhara Reddy. We are really moved by the extraordinary affection and love shown by all of you, but for which it would have been even more difficult for us to cope with this painful situation. We are greatly pained to see hundreds of people losing their lives unable to bear the untimely demise of their most beloved leader. We can understand your feelings as we ourselves are in the same situation. But the best way of paying your tribute for the departed soul is by carrying on his mantle and by making sure that all his programmes and ideologies are carried on and completed. He always used to say that his dream was to wipe every tear from every eye. He sincerely tried to do his best in the accomplishment of this most difficult task. We all have a responsibility, as true followers of his legacy, to work towards fulfilling his unfulfilled dream. We cannot afford to lose our heart and become panicky. We have to somehow summon courage and maintain calm and composure and pay our silent and respectful homage to him. On behalf of my family, I request you with folded hands, to desist from the extreme actions of committing suicides. Your life is extremely important to us. It is but for all of you and your love and affection, your sympathy and admiration, my father would not have been what he was. I would like to personally thank Smt Sonia Gandhi ji, Dr Manmohan Singh ji, Sri Rahul Gandhi ji, the Governor of AP, Chief Ministers of various states, Union Cabinet Ministers and thousands of other senior leaders of all political parties that have come to Hyderabad and Idupulapaya to pay homage to my father and to console us. As I and our other family members are grieving for the greatest loss in our life, we cannot but help in recalling the outstanding love and affection shown by late Smt Indira Gandhi, late Sri Rajiv Gandhi and Smt Sonia Gandhi for my father, but for whose unstinted support at every part of his career, it would not have been possible for my father to scale the heights he has reached. It is really a tribute to Late Sri Rajiv Gandhi that he could spot talent in my father and it was late Smt Indira Gandhi who appointed him at the age of 33 year as the president of APCC. It is equally important to note that Smt Sonia Gandhi ji had chosen my father as president of APCC in 1998, as Leader of Opposition in 1999, as Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh in 2004 and 2009. We are particularly grateful to her for her immense support and help to my father at all crucial times. She stood like a rock behind my father and supported him wholeheartedly throughout his career. It should be said to the credit of my father that he too carried on the legacy of Smt Indira Gandhi and Sri Rajiv Gandhi in full measure and made it no secret that his greatest source on inspiration for all developmental and welfare programmes was late Smt Indira Gandhi. It is providential that my father also laid down his life in the call of the duty, on his way to inaugurate yet another programme for the benefit of the common man, in the true legacy of his benefactors. During the last meeting of the party held at Gandhi Bhavan on August 27, 2009, my father clearly mentioned that his main task and dream is to make the Congress party form the government on its own in 2014 General Elections and to make Sri Rahul Gandhi ji as the Prime Minister of the country. We are also grateful to lakhs of Congress leaders and the cadre in our state for whom my father had the greatest affection. But for your support, it would not have been possible for my father to rebuild the Congress party in the state and to win many a battle including those two General Elections. I can understand your feelings and emotions for your leader. Some of you have worked very closely with him and helped him in implementing the largest number of welfare programmes to benefit every citizen in the State. I know that you are all passionately attached to him and want to carry his mantle and fulfill his unfulfilled dreams. I am grateful to all of you for these good feelings. It came to my notice that some of the party leaders and workers were rushing to the media and suggesting their choices for the successor of my father. I request everyone with folded hands to stop such activities by going to the media, starting signature campaigns, using of banners, placards demonstrations etc for my leadership as the successor of our beloved departed leader as this is not the time or the occasion. On my part, like my father, I am duty bound to be a loyal and disciplined Congress worker. We are in mourning with deep heart. As a disciplined soldier of the Congress party it gives pain to the soul of our beloved leader. We are all members of a big Congress family, which has a long history and tradition of 125 years. It is our good fortune to be members of this great family that has not only brought freedom for our country but also institutionalised democracy in our country. Every Congress worker knows that it is the tradition of our party to leave the decision of leadership to the high command and our beloved leader Smt Sonia Gandhi ji. Our high command knows and more particularly our beloved leader Smt Sonia Gandhi respects the public perception and feelings of lakhs of Congress workers and she knows too well what is good for all of us and what is good for our state and people. I request you to await the decision of Smt Sonia Gandhi, President, AICC on the issue of leadership and also urge you to abide the decision. Our beloved leader and President of AICC, Smt Sonia Gandhi ji will take a decision in such a way that Dr Rajasekhara Reddy’s ideals, mission and zeal would not be compromised in any manner. I humbly appeal to you to be strong and courageous; I am with you in these trying times, just as you are with me. (Y S Jaganmohan Reddy)

The Members Sign a Memorandum to Pledge Support for Jagan M R. as A P – C M

With most of the MLA’S  and  MP’S signing a memorandum pleading their support to Jaganmohan Reddy,  a Media Baron, Business Man who was inducted in to active politics in dramatic manner on demand of congress workers in a rally in Rayalseem attended by lakhs of supporters few years back. 

Muslims like to see Jagan as CM

Even the Muslims of the State want to show there respect and appreciation to what  Y S Rajasheker Reddy has done for them by supporting and appealing the  Congress President Sonia Gandhi to honour the services of Rajsheker Reddy to Congress Party and State of  AP by considering there request to make  Jagan Mohan Reddy the CM of Andhra Pradesh. 

Muslims want to make sure that the policies and the direction Y S R had taken to uplift the economically backward Muslims, they like to see son Jaganmohan Reddy of their good friend YSR as C M of a P.

 An Able Son of Able Father

Japan Reddy an able son of   YSR Rajsheker Reddy, who like his father is also a charismatic leader with mass appeal and vast following in the youths of the sate, and a much organised yuva group with majority of congress leader’s support in the Sate Assembly.  

 Jaganmohan, an industrialist who runs the Sakshi daily and a television channel, was elected from Kadapa Lok Sabha constituency in the April-May elections.

Jagan has been taking an active interest in the politics of Kadapa for the last couple of years and he has built up a solid party cadre staunchly loyal to him in the region.  

Resolution Passed by Legislators demanding Jagan as CM

Within hours of the death of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy in a helicopter crash, a section of ruling Congress party leaders here have begun demanding that his son Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy be made the next chief minister.

A resolution was passed amid reports that over 100 legislators of the ruling party are supporting the demand. The legislators also met Union Minister for law and in-charge of party affairs in the state M Veerappa Moily to submit a memorandum.

Some ministers have openly demanded that the young MP be made the next chief minister. A group of MPs also held a meeting here and decided to take up their demand before Congress president Sonia Gandhi.

Agitative, Campaign Launched for Jagan.

Though peaceful, should be avoided in times like this. The party equally shares the feeling shared by the loyalist of YSR.

Jaganmohan’s loyalists among party workers have launched a campaign. Some workers sitting outside Gandhi Bhavan, the party headquarters in the city, said they would not accept anybody other than YSR’s son to head the state government.

‘When Indira Gandhi expired Rajiv Gandhi was made the prime minister. Why not Jagan be made chief minister now?’ says a SMS message being circulated by Jaganmohan’s followers.

A group of MPs also held a meeting and decided to place their demand before Congress President Sonia Gandhi.

Time show Faith and Confidence in the leadership of Sonia Gandhi 

This is the Area of Great Concern and which could trigger bickers in Congress like before this should be taken as a spark if not put off can trigger a fire of descent in the party, this for sure YSR did not work for. Neither Jagan would approve.

The State leaders and loyalist to YSR in the party should give time to the leadership at the Centre and allow things to settle first.  Decisions are to be taken in more sober and calm environment, bringing grace and respect to the functioning of the Congress party as a whole.

Jagan the Natural Successor of YSR

Every one in state likes to see Japan as Natural Successor of YSR, the party President Sonia Gandhi and many senior leaders in the party must be contemplating the candidature of Jaganmohan Reddy too.

Most important  for the party today is to keep the cadre, the leaders of the state with its three regions Rayalseema, Telengana, and Andhra together and emulate the example of YSR and keeping the sentiments and feelings in to mind.

Embarrassment to Congress President Sonia Gandhi

Rushing to conclusions and going to the extent of exploring the possibilities of asking for the support of parties out side congress in the event of some congressmen not agreeing for the candidature of Jagan, is sad. There are media reports that A Group of Congress men met  leader of  Opposition Party in State Praja Rajyam leader Chiranjeevi with a request for support of Candidature of Jagan Mohan Reddy for CM Post, this is very unfortunate thing that has happened. The note of which I am sure the Congress High Comand has taken and found it as a act of Indisipline. There was no such need to react with in hours of Death of Mr YSR this must have hurt the Leaders of the Party Specially Sonia Gandhi. The Interm Selection of Mr. K Roashia as CM was Must to give the State and the Party a leader with consititutional authority and Mr. Roshaiah is a leader who will abide by the Party and is a very obideint Soilder, in the event of Change in Favour of Jagan he will whole heartedly will support Jagan and work with him like he worked with his father YSR. Party Disipline is Must at this Hour.

As per the reports in electronic media by National Networks,

“Some Congress legislators also met Praja Rajyam Party President K Chiranjeevi to request him to support Jaganmohan Reddy’s candidature”.

The Congress party has 155 members in the 294-member Assembly”.

This will be worst thing to do.  Give time; let the party and the family of YSR come to terms with the shock they are put to by destiny.

YSR had faith in the Leadership Sonia Gandhi.

Let the Last Rights of YSR be performed and let him Rest with Dignity and Honour and let that Dignity and Honour remain with the Party and its Workers in the State for Every let us remember YSR was the most loyal, obedient, and General of Congress Party. He had full faith in the Leadership of the Party President Sonia Gandhi.

Jagan could only be like her son.

The party will not let him down even in his silence. YSR was like a family to Sonia and Jagan could only be like her son too.

Let us be Patient.  Let us pray for the departed soul, may his soul rest in peace.

Legacy of  YSR to be RespectedLet the YSR Histeria live – YSR was beyond just a Chief Minister he was near  Saint.

Reports of  People Dieing and Suciding as the last right are in progress in Hyderabad, not Bearing the loss should be respected – these people sadly so,  are not die not to put  disturb the Congress Party they are die because they loved the legacy and what he stood for.

Jagan is the right choice, and it will come thru, let there be discipline in the party and legacy of YSR maintained in this hour of grief and pain. Hope the right senesces prevails and the party keeps its unity intact. And respects it s leaders and mentors Sonia Gandhi and the Mentor of Rajsheker Reddy the late Rajiv Gandhi.

Jagan Mohan Reddy son of YSR is the front runner to be the Chief Minister, of Andhra Pradesh and to fill the Vacuum Created in untimely tragic death of Y Samuel Rajasheker Reddy. There are names of Mr Jaipal Reddy another able leader from AP Telengana Region who has the metal too. But the People of AP like to see Jagan as C M.
