YSR Congress chief Jaganmohan Reddy had been maintaining silence since October 25, except for the tweet that he had made about his safety after he was attacked in Visakhapatnam airport. He did not make any statement or even a tweet on his twitter handle after this. He just wrote two letters to Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh – one about Central government’s support for the Titli cyclone relief and the other for the Central investigation into the attack on his life.
While Jaganmohan Reddy continued his silence, the YSR Congress leaders have been making hue and cry over the issue, trying to get the best political mileage. On its part, the ruling Telugu Desam Party too was not behind in countering the attack and turning the tables on YSR Congress for the fiasco. The TDP was the first to start the blame game with Chandrababu Naidu making adverse comments in the Collectors’ Conference and that was followed by DGP’s press conference, where the State government claimed that the attacker was the YSR Congress party’s sympathiser.
Even as the State is engaged in heated debate, Jaganmohan Reddy remained silent, not making any comment, not even on his twitter handle.
However, it is understood that Jaganmohan Reddy is preparing to break his silence on November 6 at Parvathipuram in Vizianagaram district.He would just walk waving at the crowd till November 6 and address a public meeting in Parvathipuram town. Interestingly, the day marks the one year of his padayatra.
Completion of one year on the roads – 297 days with his breaks on Fridays and some other days – the YSR Congress chief is set to make it big for him and his party ahead of the elections. There are several issues on his hand for the day. He is likely to talk about the attack on his life, the conspiracy angle in the attack, completion of one year of his padayatra and the alliance between the TDP and Congress. He is likely to speak on these issues at his first public meeting at Parvatipuram after the attack.
It is to be seen how his script writers would come up to drive home his point ahead of the elections.
