Why is Modi Turning Blind Eye to AP?
To every person who goes through the central budget, one thing is very clear. While the Congress party betrayed Seemandhra, the BJP broke the trust that people of AP had in it. Narendra Modi displayed his vicious nature by showing empty hand to AP even in the third budget. There are three main reasons for turning blind eye to Andhra Pradesh.
- If AP receives support, it will grow and compete with Gujarat. Modi who has great love for his own state will never let AP state be a competition to it. On the other hand, if Andhra Pradesh grows, CM Chandrababu will be accredited for it, which Modi does not want to happen. That is why the central government, under the leadership of Narendra Modi, is doing injustice to the state of AP.
- Chandrababu ‘s Single-Handed Nature: AP CM Chandrababu Naidu is keeping most details regarding development of the state confidential. He is sharing neither with state ’s BJP ministers nor with the central government, any of those details. Everything is limited to ministers Narayana, Ganta, Nara Lokesh and Chandrababu Naidu. The CM is operating single-handedly in the matter of Polavaram and state capital funds. BJP leaders like Somu Veerraju are openly commenting that Chandrababu ‘s behavior is as if he will take all credit if there is development and will blame BJP otherwise. Also, there is no ‘share’ for BJP in contracts. Due to many such reasons, BJP is dissatisfied with Chandrababu Naidu. As a result, the BJP is not granting proper budget to AP.
- BJP ‘s special relation with Jagan Mohan Reddy: As situation demanded, Narendra Modi associated with TDP for 2014 elections but he has always been interested in Jagan. While both Chandrababu and Modi were Chief Ministers, Babu demanded during 2002 Gujarat riots that Modi be arrested. This resulted in Modi ‘s fury on Chandrababu. Though BJP associated with TDP for 2014 elections, Modi sent his entrepreneur friend Adani to Jagan. Reports say that Modi sought support if YCP won MP seats. The reason for Jagan ‘s illegal assets case progressing dead slowly is Modi ‘s special affection towards Jagan, say analysts. Modi and Amit Shah ‘s plan is to associate with Jagan during next election and win more MP seats. That is the reason they are turning blind eye to AP state now.
Finally, TDP and BJP are in a relationship in which one does not trust the other. Jagan is distancing them from each other even more and AP state is at loss because of the three.
