Naidu, Jagan To Attend Same Meet For Second Time

Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy and his predecessor and TDP supremo N Chandrababu Naidu are not just polls apart, but arch-rivals in Andhra Pradesh politics. 

They don’t see eye to eye even in the Assembly when Chandrababu Naidu was attending the sessions. 

They were also not seen at the Business Advisory Committee (BAC) meetings of the Assembly or even the joint meetings to select Information Commissioners, where they both are members, no matter who ever is the chief minister. 

The distance between the two increased beyond reach over the years. The absence of third party in the Assembly is felt to bring the two leaders together at least for the constitutional obligations. 

However, the two are meeting for the second time in New Delhi, which would also be chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. 

Both Chandrababu Naidu and Jagan Mohan Reddy would attend the all-party meeting to be held in Delhi on December 5. 

The meeting is convened to discuss about holding of the G20 nations conference in the next year in India. 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi was elected as chairman of the G20 nations at its recent meetings. 

First time the two leaders attended a meeting was on the Azadi Ka Amrut held in August where Jagan Mohan Reddy and Chandrababu Naidu were present. 

This time too, the two leaders would be attending the all-party meeting to be chaired by the Prime Minister in Delhi.

However, they don’t see eye to eye nor would exchange formal pleasantries as most politicians do in public life.
