“Fear of Modi because of CBI cases”: Twitterati sense motive behind Jagan Mohan Reddy’s tweet to Hemant Soren urging to ‘strengthen the hands of our Prime Minister’

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy took an extraordinary step by publicly advising his Jharkhand counterpart, Hemant Soren, to strengthen the ‘hands of’ Prime Minister Narendra Modi. This was after Soren trended on Twitter for his decision to tweet about PM Modi’s phone call, which he described as a one-way conversation.

Reacting to Soren’s tweet, Reddy 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.”

He wrote in his subsequent tweet, “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.”



Reddy’s extraordinary step to publicly disapprove Soren’s tweet against PM Modi did not go down well netizens, who linked the Andhra chief minister’s advise to the ongoing case against him in a CBI court.








Reddy’s public posturing in defence of Modi came on a day a CBI court decided to adjourn its hearing into a case seeking cancellation of his bail in connection with alleged irregularities in a land allotment case dating back when his father late YS Rajasekhara Reddy was the chief minister to 17 May.

Soren on Thursday night had launched a stunning attack against Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his phone call to him which he described as a one-way conversation. Soren said that Modi did not care to listen to the former’s point of view on the pandemic. The stunning social media post by the Jharkhand CM had made him a top trend on Twitter, evoking angry reactions as Times Now’s Navika Kumar and News18 India’s Amish Devgan, often mocked as poor man’s Arnab Goswami, came to PM Modi’s rescue.
