It's just over 16 months since YSRCP chief YS Jaganmohan Reddy took over as Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh.
People of AP have elected him as CM for a tenure of 60 months.
But going by the current developments, it seems Jagan will hardly complete 20 months as CM. The current developments also indicate that Jagan's days are numbered as CM and the countdown has already begun for Jagan to relinquish his post.
But none has to be blamed for this except Jagan if he has to quit CM post abruptly. It's Jagan's self made disaster. As they say, there are no murders in politics, there are only suicides and Jagan seems to be proving this right again.
Jagan has written his own end as CM by writing a letter to Chief Justice of India SA Bobde last week levelling serious allegations against Supreme Court judge N V Ramana and few judges of AP High Court.
The Supreme Court chief justice SA Bobde is reportedly very angry at Jagan for not only writing a letter lowering the image of judiciary and judges but for also making this letter public by holding press conferences which is in complete violation of established protocols and norms.
Moreover, Jagan failed to submit any concrete evidences to Justice Bobde in support of his allegations against Justice Ramana and few AP High Court judges of delivering favourable judgements/ orders in favour of TDP and TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu.
Besides, the legal fraternity is unable to digest the accusations of serious nature levelled by Jagan again judiciary, who himself is facing nearly 30 cases as A-1 accused pertaining to quid pro quo, money laundering, corruption, amassing wealth by misusing his father YSR's power as CM of AP etc and already spent 16 months in Chanchalguda jail and currently roaming out on bail.
A petition is already filed by two Supreme Court lawyers today in Supreme Court seeking removal of Jagan as CM for lowering the image and dignity of judiciary by making scandalous allegations against judges of Supreme Court and AP High Court.
The legal fraternity suspects that Jagan is trying to blackmail judiciary with his letter and by abusing his power as CM to block the hearing of his cases on a day to day basis in courts.
The Supreme Court has recently directed all the High Courts in the country to speed up pending cases against sitting, former MPs, MLAs by conducting hearings on a day to day basis and legal fraternity suspects that Jagan resorted to mudslinging on judiciary to obstruct hearing of his cases and to blackmail judiciary.
The Supreme Court is likely to take serious view of Jagan's letter and deal sternly with him when it delivers judgement on the petition filed today seeking removal of Jagan as CM.
