The Prime Minister wished one of the MPs who crossed his way in the corridors of the Parliament before the sessions. This is no big issue, but has taken a lot of significance and has set ripples in the Andhra Pradesh politics. Into the story, Narasapuram MP Raghuramakrishnan Raju humbly bowed in Namasthe wishing Prime Minister Modi who was in the central hall of Parliament. Raghuramaraju who was between the tight line of security was called by Modi who cordially gave a should-to-shoulder hug to the MP addressing him “Raju guru.” This gesture came as a shock to the YSRCP MPs over there who received strict instructions from their supremo to maintain distance from the centre.
And thereby, the events followed has heated up the state politics. The same YSRCP MP has made remarks in Parliament seeking the protection of Telugu language and Centre’s intervention in ensuring teaching in mother tongue in primary classes. This has come in contradictory to the Chief Ministers strong stand on introducing English medium in government schools for classes I to VI. Close sources revealed that this has irked the CM who immediately called for the presence of the MP as soon as possible. Adding to this, Sujana Chowdary’s statement that many of the YSRCP MPs are in continuous contact with BJP supremos has added fuel to the rife speculations that BJP is slowly poaching the YSRCP MPs. This has no doubt become a new headache for the CM who is already in neck-deep troubles.
