"KCR insulted the people of Andhra repeatedly and now Jagan 'Modi' Reddy is going to support him," Lokesh tweeted.

Andhra Pradesh IT Minister Nara Lokesh on Wednesday lashed out at YSRCP chief Jaganmohan Reddy for meeting with Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) Working President K T Rama Rao over the Federal Front that is being proposed by Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao. 

In a series of tweets, Lokesh said, "Delhi Modi, Andhra Modi and Telangana Modi have come together. The agreement that was in the dark earlier has now been exposed." 

The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) has been alleging that the TRS and YSRCP met at the behest of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP. 

"KCR insulted the people of Andhra repeatedly and now Jagan 'Modi' Reddy is going to support him. Jagan has allied with KCR who has fought against the interest of the state which has been demanding that bifurcation promises be fulfilled, for the last four and a half years. They have formed an 'Andhra traitor front'," Lokesh added.

After a meeting that lasted nearly two hours, KTR and Jagan spoke to the media persons. The TRS leader said KCR, who also spoke to Jagan over phone, would soon visit Andhra Pradesh to hold further talks with him. KTR said their meeting was part of KCR's efforts to form a front as an alternative to both the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) and the United Progressive Alliance (UPA). Jagan said he welcome KCR's initiative to create a national platform by bringing together like-minded regional parties to fight for the protection of the rights of the states.

Just last week, Lokesh, who is the son of TDP chief and Andhra Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, had lashed out at Jagan, calling him an actor, whose script was written in New Delhi. Lokesh alleged that Jagan never spoke a single word against Prime Minister Narendra Modi for failing to grant Special Category Status (SCS) to Andhra Pradesh among other promises made during bifurcation.  

Questioning the 'silence' on special category status and steel plant in Jagan's ‘own’ Kadapa district, Lokesh alleged that Modi and Jagan had decided to create hurdles for the state’s development.

Lokesh said that he decided to rename Jaganmohan Reddy after seeing the ‘drama’ that Jagan was staging in coalition with Modi.

“After seeing all these dramas, I decided to call him Jagan Modi Reddy instead of Jaganmohan Reddy,” Lokesh had said.
