Participating in the Odarpu Yatra in Krishna district on Sunday night, Jagan declared that he had no plans, whatsoever, to pull down the Kiran government.
“The Congress party came to power for the second successive time because of my father late Y S Rajasekhara Reddy’s hard work and pro-poor schemes. I don’t want to make any attempt to pull it down. However, I will continue to fight for the implementation of schemes introduced by my father,” he said.
It is pretty evident from Jagan’s statement that he has admitted his limitations. He has realised that it is not so easy to destabilize the government and force a mid-term poll in the state for various reasons: first, there are not enough MLAs with him now; and even among those who had resigned in his support, some of them have developed second thoughts.
Secondly, the Telangana agitation is at its peak and there is no possibility of Jagan gaining any support in the region in the present circumstances.
Thirdly, the ongoing CBI inquiry into his alleged illegal assets case has caused some dent into his image. At this stage, it is not possible to get the majority seats in the state.
So, the best option before Jagan at present is to continue his tours among the people and gain their sympathy. He has no choice but to wait for another three years to realize his dream.
