Is the TDP trying to use former CM Rosaiah's last rites to whip up anti-Jagan sentiment among the Vysya community? Those in the know say ‘yes.' They say that Chandrababu is trying to make an issue out of Jagan not calling on Rosaiah's kin and paying his respects to Rosaiah personally.

The TDP is now trying to create buzz over Jagan  not personally offering tributes to Rosaiah. In fact, Jagan sent several ministers to Rosaiah's residence, where the body was lying in state and spoke to Rosaiah's son. However, he did not personally go to Ameerpet, where Rosaiah's mortal remains were kept. This was mainly due to the pressing engagements.

But the rivals are trying to make an issue out of it. There is a buzz that Jagan only attends the funerals of those who belong to his community and region. They are also trying to popularize the fact that Chandrababu personally went to Rosaiah's residence.

In fact, Rosaiah's love for YSR is well-known. He had also said that Jagan was eminently suitable to become the CM of the state. He had also given several suggestions to YS Jagan in his political journey. Several well-wishers of YS Jagan also strongly felt that he should have gone over to the residence of Rosaiah personally. He did, however , condone Rosaiah's  death through other means.  Despite all these, attempts are allegedly being made to drive a wedge between the Arya Vysyas and YS Jagan.
