Is Andhra Pradesh CM Chandrababu Naidu mirroring YSRCP's missteps?

Is the TDP government repeating the same mistakes as the previous YSRCP administration? Is Chandrababu Naidu continuing the controversial practices of the YCP regime? A significant incident prompting these questions is the hasty demolition of the YSRCP building in the Tadepalli area of Mangalagiri.

Is Andhra Pradesh CM Chandrababu Naidu mirroring YSRCP's missteps? AJR
First Published Jun 23, 2024, 4:12 PM IST

The YSRCP was decisively defeated in the recent election due to multiple failures by the Jaganmohan Reddy-led government. Now, Pawan Kalyan, who is part of the coalition government, emphasizes the need to focus on addressing people's issues and state development rather than targeting YSRCP leaders. However, recent events suggest a troubling pattern. Despite the coalition government's intentions, there is a growing public perception that they are engaging in factional politics.

Controversial Demolition: The assembly witnessed a courteous interaction between the TDP and YSRCP, where the YSRCP requested that Jagan be allowed to take his oath of office in a dignified manner, which the TDP agreed to. However, this decorum sharply contrasted with the swift demolition of the under-construction YSRCP building. This action, taken despite court orders to follow legal procedures, has sparked significant controversy. YSRCP leaders allege that the coalition government is targeting them unfairly.

The Incident: Officials demolished the YSRCP office, situated on two acres under the Mangalagiri-Tadepalli Municipal Corporation in Guntur district. They claimed the construction violated regulations by commencing without proper land handover. The YSRCP accuses the TDP government of factional politics, alleging that the demolition was politically motivated.

YCP's Argument: The Jaganmohan Reddy government allocated the land for the YSRCP office under a nominal lease, which the TDP criticized as improper use of valuable land.

CRDA's Stance: The CRDA issued notices to the YSRCP about the unauthorized construction before the new government took office. They cited the need for proper irrigation permits, which the YSRCP allegedly ignored. Despite multiple notices, the YSRCP did not comply, leading to the demolition under Section 115 of the CRDA Act.

Missed Opportunity for Sobriety: Critics argue that the demolition should have been carried out following court orders to avoid perceptions of partisanship. The YCP had sought court intervention, and waiting for a court ruling could have demonstrated a commitment to due process.

Repeating Past Mistakes: The YCP government's demolition of Prajavedika led to their severe rejection by the electorate. If Naidu's administration repeats such measures, it risks alienating the public, regardless of other achievements or promises fulfilled. This could jeopardize the coalition government's long-term goals.

Addressing Corruption: Chandrababu Naidu claims significant corruption occurred under the YCP government, particularly in mining and sand distribution. He needs to expose these issues to the public through legal channels rather than adopting punitive measures reminiscent of YCP's regime.

Janasena's Neutral Stance: The Janasena party, led by Deputy CM Pawan Kalyan, remains neutral amid these developments. Kalyan advocates for a government focused on public welfare rather than partisan actions. If the TDP government prioritizes public welfare, it could prevent the YCP from regaining power. Otherwise, there is a risk of ceding power back to Jaganmohan Reddy, as the YCP still holds a substantial voter base of 40 percent.

Conclusion: The TDP government must tread carefully to avoid repeating the mistakes of its predecessor. Upholding legal procedures and prioritizing public welfare over partisan actions will be crucial in maintaining public trust and ensuring long-term governance stability.
