Yes, the much awaited climax has begun. The belligerent Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy and an equally confrontational partner Congress High Command have reached a stage where there is no possibility of any sort of truce. As per the Delhi sources and latest media reports, Y.S. Vivekananda Reddy almost confirmed his berth in the to be formed state cabinet through expressing superfluous loyalty to the high command on behalf of late YSR family. Given with his poor following and charm in the state politics, it is quite unconvincing that how far Y.S. Vivekananda Reddy will succeed in re-polarizing late YSR and Jagan followers and fans.
The Jagan group also seems taking stock of the developments in New Delhi and observing political dynamics in the context of composition of the state Cabinet. The last move of the group will be to maintain some resilience till the formation of the Cabinet. As major changes in the cabinet appear imminent, it is most likely that Jagan group may get some more MLAs into their fold in the form of unlucky dissidents.
The most undeserved fall out of the ongoing political and power struggle between Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy and Congress High Command could be Veerappa Moily. The high command seems intentionally kept Veerappa Moily away from AP affairs for quite a long time because of his perceived soft attitude towards Jagan. It is rather evident in sending Gulam Nabi Azad to Hyderabad on the day of announcement of new Chief Minister. More explicit proof is meeting between Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy and Azad in Delhi. Moily appears keeping himself away from meeting new CM through scheduling his Jaipur tour on the much important day of finalizing the berths in cabinet. Azad is most likely to take charge of Party affairs once again in the state.
