Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, in a surprising turn of events, has come to the defence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi today, on Twitter, when the Chief Minister of Jharkhand made a snide comment on the PM on Twitter.
Hemant Soren, the Chief Minister of Jharkhand, who became the CM of the state by winning from his own party, Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM), took to Twitter and said that when he spoke to the PM, the PM spoke his heart out, but stated that it would have been better if the PM was willing to listen to what Hemant had to say.
Jagan replied to this Tweet of Hemant’s and wrote, “Dear @HemantSorenJMM, I have great respect for you, but as a brother I would urge you, no matter what ever our differences are, indulging in such level of politics would only weaken our own nation. In this war against Covid-19, these are the times not to point fingers but to come together and strengthen the hands of our Prime Minister to effectively combat the pandemic”.
The way that Jagan came forward to support the PM in full solidarity, pleasantly surprised everyone, given that Jagan neither belongs to the BJP, nor is a political ally of the BJP. This is most certainly a step in the right direction.
In this war against Covid-19, these are the times not to point fingers but to come together and strengthen the hands of our Prime Minister to effectively combat the pandemic. 2/2
