Politics is all about you and me. Political parties fight between themselves to win the confidence of the public. There is a hidden rule in politics that families and family issues should not be dragged into politics.
But the Late YSR and Jagan Mohan Reddy are fighting opponents using their families and the issues in their families making their politics murkier.
YSR used Daggubati Venkateswara Rao and Purandeshwari against Chandrababu Naidu. They were made to make wild allegations about Chandrababu Naidu because of the conflicts in their family. YSR made Purandeshwari a Central Minister for that.
Jagan Mohan Reddy took that to an even worst level. We have been seeing how YSR Congress leaders invoke Junior NTR every now and then when they need an issue.
Lakshmi Parvathi despite knowing that she has no public support was brought into the party to abuse Chandrababu and Lokesh. She was given plum posts in the party and the Government.
Before the elections, Junior NTR’s father-in-law, Narne Srinivasa Rao was admitted into the party and used to make derogatory comments about Chandrababu Naidu and the family.
Then, there is the heinous abuse of Chandrababu’s wife, Bhuvaneshwari in the assembly and Jagan did nothing about it.
Previously, YSR used Ramoji Rao’s own son, Suman against the media Baron. And now, Jagan is employing the same technique for Ramoji Rao as well. Sakshi has brought Dolphin Appa Rao, the co-brother of Ramoji Rao for an interview and has used him to make degrading comments.
Ramoji Rao and Appa Rao have had property disputes for a long time. Using that, Jagan made him comment on Ramoji Rao and derive political mileage.
“Jagan has no sentiments. We have seen him drive away his mother and sister after using them in elections. We have seen what he did to his own Uncle Viveka and how he is trying to assassinate the character of Viveka’s daughter. How can we expect him to respect the families and relations of others?,” TDP leaders are commenting.
