Telangana Rashtra Samithi president and chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao is an experienced politician and is now ruling the state for a second successive term.
On the other hand, YSR Congress party president Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy has become the chief minister for the first time and has absolutely no experience of running the administration, as he had never been in the government in the past.
Yet, the people of Telangana, particularly unemployed youth and the government employees, have started feeling that Jagan is a better people-friendly chief minister than KCR.
Especially after the strike by the RTC employees, the difference between two chief ministers is all the more evident.
A message comparing KCR and Jagan is doing rounds in the social media at present. It reads like this:
“An RTC employee in Andhra is smiling for being merged with the government, while his counterpart in Telangana is sacked just for asking for merger with the government.”
“The state government employees in Andhra are rejoiced with increased dearness allowance and interim relief, while in Telangana, the employees are crying for being denied even the dearness allowance due, leave alone interim relief.
“The unemployed youth in Andhra are getting job opportunities in village secretariats and village volunteers, while the unemployed in Telangana are still waiting for the announcement of job recruitment notification.”
Now, tell us who will people love, KCR or Jagan?
