Vijayawada; Mlatimes; The YSR Congress chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy was, in a way, trying to realign the long-standing political differences between the Congress and YSRCP when he said that he had forgiven Congress for the way the party has treated him in the past. Further, he mentions that he was not averse to joining hands with the Congress if the party grants the SCS to Andhra Pradesh.
“I don’t have any grievance against anybody… I strongly believe vengeance is not mine, it is for God to decide. I have forgiven them from my heart. As far as I am concerned, my state is my priority. Special category status is my priority,” Jagan told a TV channel.
Jagan has so far managed to keep the united opposition at a safe distance and has not attacked the BJP. This has led to allegations by the TDp saying that he was supporting the saffron party. his latest statement gives a hint at leaving room for new maneuvers.
The remarks hold some significance as the Congress is already in an undeclared alliance with the YSRCP’s main rival, TDP, in Andhra Pradesh. also, the TDP was in an aaliance with the Congress when they fought the polls for the assembly elections, together.
