'Divangatha Netha, Priyathama Nayakudu'

Opposition leader YS Jagan Mohan Reddy's speech in AP Assembly session has become subject of discussion as many political analysts are pointing out on how Jagan Mohan Reddy is showing his over-love and over-respect for his dad late YS Rajasekhar Reddy.

While speaking on the issue of Dwcra loans on Tuesday, Jagan repeatedly recalled his dad and every time he did so, he invariably uses the prefix 'Divangatha Netha, Priyathama Nayakudu Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy Garu'.

This redundant and superfluous usage of 'Divangatha Netha, Priyathama Nayakudu' word often in Jagan's speech is irking many. Jagan using such over-the-top adjectives for his loving dad in his yatras, public functions and press conferences in many occasions can be understood. As it's intended for his political mileage banking on his dad's legacy and held with his own cost or his party cost, it's acceptable. But uttering such adjectives often in people's Assembly is receiving the flak.

Especially the usage of such superfluous words in Assembly during serious session is definitely not a welcome thing. Visibly, Jagan is banking on his dad's charisma and little did he do anything for people to claim fame. Hope Jagan realizes this and gets it corrected soon. It's high time Jagan should move on from cashing in on his father's image.
