  • YS Jagan meets Chinna Jeeyar Swamy at his ashram in Hyderabad on Tuesday

  • YSRCP cadre call this meeting as seeking blessings from the Swamy

Andhra Pradesh opposition party leader and YSRCP (Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party) supremo YS Jaganmohan Reddy visited Godman Chinna Jeeyar Swamy at his ashram in Hyderabad. But the news of his visit is a mystery as nobody is ready to divulge the details of the visit.

Reports already stated that YSRCP is conducting a yagam for the next general elections and YSRCP leaders say that Jagan went to seek the blessings of Chinna Jeeyar prior to the yagam. They reiterated that there is no political connotation for this visit.

Political analysts think that Jagan’s visit to the Godman has something to do with his trials to become closer to the BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) as rumoured news of his meeting BJP and Hindutva leaders came out last week. There’s also discussion that Jagan is trying to get closer to Hindus and all these trials point toward that.

Jagan on Tuesday returning from Bengaluru went directly to Chinna Jeeyar ashram from Hyderabad Shamshabad Airport. Chinna Jeeyar gave a grand welcome to Jagan at the JIMS hospital after which he took Jagan to his room in the hospital and had a discussion with him.

Jagan took a tour of the hospital run by Chinna Jeeyar and appreciated the charity work of Chinna Jeeyar Swamy. After which the Godman personally came to the door to see off Jagan where Jagan bowed and touched the feet of the Swamy and took his blessings.

This is the second time Jagan is seen touching someone’s feet after he previously touched President Ramnath Kovind when he came to Hyderabad for his presidential campaign.
