Prime Minister Narendra Modi's public meeting in Guntur today has invited for huge debate in AP political circles. Given that TDP govt has planned to hold massive protests against Modi's rally, the main opposition parties in AP kept silent and did not make their stand clear so far.
While on one hand the state BJP leadership is making arrangements for meeting called 'Praja Chaitanya Sabha' at Etukuru bypass road, on other hand huge hoardings which said '#GoBackModi' have appeared on Guntur roads. The TDP chief while speaking to his party leaders at a teleconference said, "The drama of Jagan will get exposed to AP people after Modi's rally. While the entire state is holding a protest against PM, the opposition leader is hiding in Hyderabad.
When it comes to Jana Sena, the party's allies in state including CPI, CPM and leftists have took out a protest against Modi's tour as he failed to fulfill the promises made to the state. But, the Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan who claims that he was the first person to question Narendra Modi, is tight-lipped now. Also in the past, Pawan said that he is ready to partner with anyone to save the interests of state. But, his absence during the PM's visit is raising doubts over his commitment.
If he's really against Modi for ignoring AP special status, he should have given a call to his party cadre to a protest against Modi's rally. His silence is doing more damage and leading to confusion in his party members.
