Jagan Issue: Amit Shah Serious on Vijay Sai Reddy?

Ahead of Parliament's Winter Session, an All-party meeting has been held at Parliament Library Building in Delhi which was attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah besides Parliamentary Party Leaders of various political parties. As part of the custom, the all-party meeting was called for smooth functioning of the upcoming Parliament session.

However, an interesting incident took place in the meet when YSRCP parliamentary party leader Vijay Sai Reddy raked up YS Jagan's topic. Union Home Minister Amit Shah and other senior members have reportedly expressed their displeasure over raising Jagan's topic in the all-party meeting. Vijay Sai Reddy has been reportedly advised to not to repeat such acts and asked him to be cautious of what to speak at such high level meet convened ahead of Winter Session.

Going into details, the Congress Parliamentary Party Leaders have asked to permit their senior leader and former finance minister P Chidambaram, who is in remand, to attend parliament's winter session. At this time, Vijay Sai Reddy has raised objection raising YS Jagan Reddy's 16-month jail tenure when he was MP and how he was denied bail and not allowed to attend Parliament's Sessions. This has irked both Amit Shah and Congress leaders who told Vijay Sai Reddy that Jagan is no longer MP and Jagan's topic is irrelevant. Amit Shah reportedly told Vijay Sai Reddy that Congress has made its request and it has been noted by the Union Government. He advised Vijay Sai Reddy to not raise political and irrelevant points at all-party meeting. With this, Vijay Sai Reddy reportedly turned silent. Congress leaders have also told Vijay Sai Reddy strongly that how can he compare Chidambaram with Jagan. Vijay Sai Reddy reportedly got full class from senior leaders at the all-party meeting.

Meanwhile, the winter session of Parliament starts from today i.e November 18 till December 13. The meeting was also attended by Union minister Thawarchand Gehlot, Congress' leader in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad and deputy leader of opposition in Rajya Sabha Anand Sharma.

TMC leader Derek O Brien, LJP leader Chirag Paswan and Samajwadi Party leader Ram Gopal Yadav, Telugu Desam Party Jayadev Galla and YCP's V Vijaysai Reddy were among those present at the meeting. Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla had on Saturday appealed to all political parties for cooperation for ensuring smooth functioning of the House.
