I appreciate Modi, want him to change the entire system, Jagan Reddy says
Hyderabad: Just out after 16 months in jail, YSR Congress president YS Jaganmohan Reddy on Monday sent signals that he was keeping his options open post Lok Sabha elections today and had a word of appreciation for BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.
"I said I am secular. What other secular parties like communists, like Janata Dal (U), would do, I will also do the same. I have my options. I dont think I would be in a hurry. All these options are there for everybody," he told reporters here.
"What I want Narendra Modi to do is, I appreciate Modi as an administrator, I want Modi to change this entire system in bringing every party on to a secular platform in the interest of the nation," he said.
Stressing that religion is a matter of personal faith, he wondered why should religion be politicised and any individual discriminated over his religion.
"I belong to the present generation. Whether we are Hindus, Christians or Muslims, we are all born here, live here and are going to die here," he said.
The YSRCP remained committed to secularism, he added.
After Mamata Banerjee wrote to President Pranab Mukherjee urging action against former Supreme Court Judge AK Ganguly in the sexual harassment case, Bar Council of India Chairman Manan Kumar Mishra said that police can lodge an FIR in the case but the victim has to come in front and speak up.
