How Jagan Mohan Reddy has incapacitated official institutions

Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh since 2019, will never be satisfied with the authority that comes with his office.

Democracy doesn’t suit him: he is an autocratic leader, seeking absolute power. He is prepared to knock down a complex structure of democratic governance to get it.

Over the past two years, Jagan has extracted the teeth of the official institutions that are in place to balance the power of the Chief Minister, such as the Election Commission. He has even shown contempt for the judicial system, ridiculing the High Court. And state officials such as the Governor and the Director General of Police – who are responsible for ensuring that this doesn’t happen – have done nothing to stop him.
