Chief Minister’s ‘three capital’ proposal has no doubt added fuel to the already agitated capital issue in the state. Stirring up the hornet’s nest the ruling party minister who ought to safeguard peace, further worsened the situation with the untimely comments. While the protests are on their violent form, the report from GNR Committee..an exclusive meeting with Krishna and Guntur district MLAs rather triggered the agitations making things out of hands for the cabinet meeting. However, the government post the cabinet meeting didn’t make its statement clear on the capital issue as anticipated. Besides announcing the CBI probe over the insider trading, the government decided to constitute a high-power committee to take a final decision on three capitals proposal. Is this a calculated move taken by Jagan and team?
Post the announcement of the ‘three-capital’ proposal in State Assembly, both the ministers and the Chief Minister kept snubbing the issue stating that the government would come to conclusion in the next cabinet meeting. But least did his team see the flak coming from the Amaravati farmers. The farmers along with women and children sat down in protests lashing out on the government taking to protests which reached to 11 days by Saturday. The protest took the worst form on Friday at the silent protest held by BJP leader Kanna Lakshminarayana.
Seems like the government is now on damage control note, said a political analyst who has been observing the government’s stand post the cabinet meeting. The Jagan-led government stated that it would aggregate the conclusions from the three reports GNR Committee report, the Boston Consultancy Group (which is to be submitted by January) and the High-power committee. Meanwhile, to chuck the Opposition, it has proposed the CBI enquiry on insider trading which discursively refers to a few TDP leaders. Is this move a calculated one just to pacify the agitation?
