It was quite clear on Friday that the TDP had come to the assembly with a plan and a purpose. Right from the word Go, the TDP MLAs began making obnoxious comments on YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. They began running commentary and shouted slogans which implied that Jagan was involved in killing YS Vivekananta Redy.

They also repeatedly said that Jagan had duped his sister Sharmila.Despite speaker Tammineni's repeated requests, the TDP members were unusually aggressive.

Then suddenly, Chandrababu stood up and accused the ruling benches of using abusive language on his wife. He flew into a rage and staged a walkout. As if a cue, the MLAs sitting by Chandrababu's side videographed his comments on their mobiles and promptly released the clips to the media. However, the ruling party claimed that the YSRCP did not make any comment on Chandrababu' wife.

They said that Chandrababu was enacting a drama in the assembly. Soon, the presser was announced and Chandrababu wept in front of the media. These images were flashed across pro-TDP media, which made a big issue of this. Despite crying, Chandrababu carefully read from a prepared note and said that he would not enter into the assembly till he was re-elected as the CM of the state. It was clear that the whole thing was stage managed and carefully choreographed.
