Agnipath violence: KCR Stokes, Jagan Stops

The introduction of the Agnipath scheme In the Indian Army and the announcement made by PM Modi's BJP-led Union Government a couple of days back triggered violent protests across the country. The protests by the so-called youth who aspired to join the army started in the North and then slowly spread to the South. However the way the protests spread in the southern states, especially Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, once again showed how the opposition-ruled states, stoked the protests. 

This shows that while Telangana CM KCR stoked the Agnipath protests playing on the emotions and sentiments of the youngsters, AP CM Jagan Mohan Reddy stopped the protests. The difference in the strategy showed how the Telangana government despite getting intelligence reports two days before the violence at Secunderabad Railway Station, turned out to be a silent spectator while AP government cracked the whip and ensured that there was no violence at the Visakhapatnam railway station.

This once again brings to the core how KCR and Jagan reached on Agnipath violence. AP CM Jagan has been on the good terms with PM Modi and the ruling BJP and so ensured that there will be no violence in Andhra Pradesh and as TS CM KCR is not on good terms and is planning to take the PM Modi and BJP across the country launching a national party, he stoked the violence. Had KCR been in good terms with PM Modi, there wouldn't have been any violence at the Secunderabad railway station.
