The Congress president Sonia Gandhi entered Seemandhra after a long gap and remarked that Telugu Desam Party and Bharatiya Janata Party are two sides of the same coin. Though the response from the people was cold, she put up a brave face.
She appealed to people to reject TDP-BJP alliance which has been planned to spread prejudice and hatred among people. Trying to wean away minorities completely from TDP, she reminded how TDP was still with BJP during Godhra riots.
She criticized Jagan’s party for exploiting late chief minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy’s legacy and she said that YSR was a loyal member of Congress party which gave him an opportunity to serve AP and he worked hard by implementing the policies of Congress party.
Analysts say that her focus was more on TDP-BJP alliance than Jagan and this may hint about the political alliances that may take shape soon. Most of it would be known once the results are out and the number of seats won by each party.
