After winning 151 seats, Jagan has instilled fear not only in the Opposition but also among his own leaders. In the three years so far, there is not even a whisper of dissent.
Three years passed by and there are signs of anti-incumbency in the people and we can see party leaders violating the leadership.
In just one week, we have seen that happening in Gannavaram and in Machilipatnam.
In Machilipatnam, a war broke out between MP Balashouri and MLA Perni Nani.
Balashouri alleged that Nani is obstructing his tours in Machilipatnam and intentionally ignoring protocol.
As a protest, a few followers of Perni Nani staged a protest outside the MPs’ program venue at Machilipatnam shouting slogans against the MP and asking him to leave Machilipatnam.
In Gannavaram, it is Vallabhaneni Vamsi Vs Yarlagadda Venkat Rao and Dutta Rama Chandra Rao
Only the last week, the party high command has called Dutta and spoke to him to end the public feud.
But the war has become further intense after that. Yarlagadda and Dutta are openly making corruption allegations against Vamsi. They are openly announcing that they would not co-operate with Vamsi if he gets the ticket.
Vamsi is also making critical comments on Yarlagadda and Dutta. While they make comments on each other, it is only the party’s image that is suffering.
Watching the series of incidents, one can easily conclude that Jagan is losing grip on the party leaders across the state.
