Speaking in the assembly today, Telugu Desam Party chief Chandrababu Naidu said Jagan prioritized a particular caste while assigning nominated posts.

In response, Jagan made some very intriguing comments.

“Chandrababu is making baseless allegations on YCP government. I appointed Chandrababu’s mother-in-law, Lakshmi Parvathi as Telugu Academy chairman. But Chandrababu is saying I am favoring a particular caste.”, Jagan said.

Jagan further added that more than 50% of the nominated posts were given to SC/BC communities in Andhra Pradesh and that speaks a lot about the YCP government’s policy.

YCP and TDP MLAs got themselves involved in heated verbal exchanges in today’s assembly session.
