AMARAVATI (from left): The decision by the state to rename NTR University of Health Sciences after Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy's father and former chief minister YS Rajasekhar Reddy has sparked a big political debate.On Wednesday, the state assembly approved a bill to rename the NTR University of Health Sciences as YSR University of Health Sciences.Though Jagan had defended the decision in the state assembly, YSRC cadres aren't exactly willing to endorse it, according to party sources.Many YSRC loyalists have voiced opposition to the government's tactics on social media.Vallabhaneni Vamsi, a Gannavaram legislator who resigned to the YSRC after winning on a TDP ticket, asked Jagan to reconsider his decision.Our chief minister is adamant in his choice of Vijayawada district over NTR, a feat that Naidu could not accomplish under his 14-year reign.According to Vamsi, we ask that the NTR name for the health university be retained.After the decision to remove NTR's name from the college, YSRC cadres in Krishna and Guntur districts, who credited them for naming Vijayawada district after NTR, are now feeling ashamed. According to a YSRC observer, we gave TDP a knife to target Jagan.A well-known cardiologist who is said to be the backer of the Jagan regime also expressed displeasure with the decision.I'm unable to figure out how and what the government wanted to gain from this decision.In a social media post, the cardiologist said they should not have touched it. In the first four days of the assembly session, YS Jagan gained valuable exposure by making an elaborate presentation on various topics, such as Polavaram, Nadu-Nedu in schools and hospitals, but the wrong decision was taken.According to Jayaprakash, it is illegal to remove NTR's name from the health university.
