Andhra CM slams 'opportunist, ruthless' Jagan

May 19, 2012 22:56 IST

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy on Saturday criticised the YSR Congress party chief and Kadapa Member of Parliament Y S Jaganmohan Reddy by calling him an "opportunist".

Speaking at a function in Guntur, the chief minister, who was joined by state Congress chief Botsa Satyanarayana in the attack against Jagan, alleged that the Kadapa MP had amassed wealth by misusing the powers of his late father and former AP chief minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy.

Alleging that Jagan was hungry for power, the chief minister said, "He is leading a princely life and cannot claim to be poor people's representative. He is ruthless."

He further alleged that Jagan's sole aim was to become the chief minister of the state.

"To achieve this goal, he had supported the no-confidence motion tabled by TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu. But MLAs loyal to Jagan had to pay a penalty for their act. It is not their sacrifice," he said.

Botsa alleged that the Telugu Desam Party chief had lost his credibility.
