Strange reason for Modi’s tight-fist on AP
Andhrites expected a lot from Modi on the occasion of Amaravati foundation laying ceremony. However, he offered a fistful of sand and bottle of water. The BJP State unit is under defense after Modi’s tour. People of Andhra Pradesh are furious over Modi’s silence even after Babu’s open request from the dais. This is really a setback for BJP in AP. Why Modi was silent even though he knew that something should be done for the party’s future in the State?
He is a staunch devotee of Durga. He observes fasting during the nine days of the festival. He performs all rituals with devotion. He visited Amaravati on the last day of his ‘deeksha’. According to Babu, Modi was on fasting on that day. In that case, Modi could not offer anything…because…
He announced a huge package of Rs 1.2 lakh for Bihar. However, the Centre is not in a position to allot Rs 50,000 Crore to Bihar in coming four years. Modi generously announced the package keeping in view of Bihar elections.
But, Andhra’s situation is different. There is no election or any profitable return for Modi, if he blesses the State with generous gesture. He could not announce the similar package or lesser one to AP, even though chances of disbursement are again weak (like Bihar). This is just because of….his deeksha (He could not lie)
Secondly, the Centre came to a conclusion that special status was not possible for AP. This cannot be announced at Amaravati function. He should have convinced the people by saying that the special status was under consideration. However, he cannot lie…because he was observing the deeksha. That is why he did not touch any issue.
Therefore, we should conclude that deeksha of ‘Durga ‘stopped Modi for uttering anything about special status.
