Is Chandrababu Actually Helping YS Jagan?

One thing that everyone in Andhra Pradesh is realizing is that Chandrababu is fast loosing his cool. He is flying into fits of rage while talking about YS Jagan. Is is because of the fear of losing the 2019 elections? Or is it because of the age-related issues? During 2014 elections, he had promised lot of things. But none of the main promises such as special status, swarnandha or even Vizag special railway zone have been fulfilled. So, he is worried . His tactical blunder was to accept special package instead of special category status. To top it, he lost his bargaining power with the Centre after the Cash for Vote scam. With the elections round the corner, he is now forced to demand special status. To cover up his failutes he has been attacking YSRCP and YS Jagan at every given opportunity. He is also trying to drag YS Jagan’s family members into the controversies.

On the other hand, YS Jagan is keeping his cool and has never crossed the Lakshman Rekha while criticizing Chandrababu. He had never tried to bring in his family members. More over, repeated criticism of YS Jagan is actually popularizing him. The people are able to see the contrast between the two political leaders. All this is turning out to be a positive thing for YS Jagan. Dragging YS Bharathi  into the debate is only turning out to be counter productive for Chandrababu, say political watchers.
