Jagan’s MPs to quit on the last day of Parliament

It looks like Jagan Mohan Reddy is sharpening his strategy day by day. He had announced that his party MPs would quit Parliament for special category status two years ago. He did not stand for it. He repeated the same this year and set April 6 for the MPs to quit as the Parliament budget session was originally posted to conclude on April 5. He also posted the no confidence motion for March 21, but advanced it to March 12. The decisions were changed following changes in the political platform both in the State and at the Centre.

Jagan Mohan Reddy’s latest decision to make his MPs quit Lok Sabha on the last day of the session, whenever it is adjourned sine die, came as a surprise for the ruling Telugu Desam Party in the state. Though the TDP is not prepared to accept the swift move and the damage it would cause to it, Jagan Mohan Reddy’s decision had forced the TDP to hold an all-party meeting.

Being hit hard by the BJP on one side and the YSR Congress on the other, the TDP is now trying to take shelter in the support of all parties. Whether the all parties would lend him the required support or not, this initiative would come handy for Naidu to go to the people for their sympathy.

With changing strategy, not stand, to suit to the changing situations is a new thing that Jagan Mohan Reddy is learning now. He should come out of the image of a dictator. Though his father was even a greater dictator at that age fighting against the leaders and being tough with everyone, the advantage he had was that he was in the Congress and never had his own outfit. But, Jagan Mohan Reddy is heading his own party and whatever he does is attributed to him. When his aggression or dissent now reflects on his leadership and would cast him dear. This is what is happening for him. He should accept the split in opinions to be expressed by the leaders, which is called internal democracy. If that is not allowed and felt, people would not accept it.

Jagan Mohan Reddy, by changing his stand on the two occasions, appeared to be changing his attitude. That is a welcome development in him as a leader. He is also seen holding group meetings with the leaders these days. Perhaps the padayatra must have taught him this lesson, like it had taught his father.
