Now, it's payback time for the Congress. Once it had unceremoniously edged out YS Jagan Mohan Reddy from the party. Today, it is virtually prostrating before Jagan and is seeking his support in the post-poll situation. Sonia Gandhi had written a personal letter to Jagan inviting him to Delhi for a meeting to decide future political scenario. Even the national media has confirmed this. The Congress badly needs regional satraps like YS Jagan and is ready to atone for its past sins.
But, YS Jagan, it appears, is in no mood to forgive and forget. He is said to have ignored the letter. Sources say that Jagan got an invite to attend a meeting of the non-NDA, pro-UPA and neutral political parties in Delhi on May 23, the day when results would be out. This is part of Sonia Gandhi's last ditch attempt to drum up support for Rahul Gandhi.
Sources say Jagan has treated the letter with the contempt it deserves and has consigned it to the dust bin. He has no intention to be part of the meeting. YSRCP sources said Jagan will take a decision on post-poll alliances keeping the interests of the state in mind. Whatever is in the best interest of the state will be done, a YSRCP leader said. He also said that the Congress should remember that Jagan is not like Chandrababu Naidu, who is ready to mortgage the interests of the state at the altar of personal benefit.
