As COVID rages in AP, Jagan’s vendetta politics never dies

In the midst of a global pandemic and India witnessing a health catastrophe due to the 2nd wave of infections, AP Chief Minister Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy seems to be more interested in settling political scores than standing up for the state and procuring supplies/resources to save the people suffering the COVID crisis. 
 
The Opposition has been blunt in its criticism on how the Jagan government has added more confusion and is not doing enough to procure vaccines for the state along with a lack of action plan for COVID. During such crises too, the YSRCP is hell-bent on hitting back at these statements rather than working towards creating a people-friendly solution to beat COVID-19 or secure vaccines from pharma companies. 
 
In a strong rebuttal to TDP Chief N. Chandrababu Naidu, Jagan said: “Centre has complete authority on vaccine companies and in fact to the Supreme Court, they informed that based on their recommendation, respective states would get the quota of vaccines.” 
 
According to AP CM, the two companies which are manufacturing the vaccines have less capacity. Taking a dig at Chandrababu Naidu, Jagan even went to the extent of lying to people publicly by declaring that “the surprising thing is Bharat Biotech is owned by Chandrababu Naidu’s relative and he has complete information on vaccine manufacturing.” With this statement, it is clear that even at this moment, Jagan is clearly focussing on vendetta politics which is not the need of the hour. 
 
Additionally, his government has also challenged Chandrababu to “use his influence and bring enough vaccine doses to the state.” With one of YSRCP Government’s minister’s making this comment, social media is rife with mockery on the Jagan-led government. Political analysts, on the other hand, are questioning why TDP Chief should be doing the work of a Chief Minister that Jagan ought to do? 
 
Meanwhile, popular opinion on social media across India from several circles is that if "Chandrababu Naidu was made the interim PM or head of a COVID-related task force, he would have handled the situation much better and the vaccine, infection rate, would have been controlled by now." Going by his track record of being the man who is one of the best crisis managers in India, one cannot deny this fact.
 
On the other hand, it looks like the YSRCP is more busy and interested in settling political scores and ego battles rather than focussing on saving life and reducing infection rates in Andhra Pradesh.
