Amaravati: Jagan's reply to criticism that he is inefficient in retaining party MLAs who are on defection spree is rather interesting.
Talking to a media channel he asked if it means he has to go in reverse gear offering more than the ruling party leader has been doing. He said that in order to stop them defecting from his party he has to offer 25 crores or 30 crores and admitted he does not have so much money.
Jagan added that CBN has so much of money he had earned by corruption hence he is buying other party MLAs. Jagan added that he has faith in God and people and said he expects people to have character. Since he follows sincere and transparent route he expects his party people also to tread the same path. Jagan remarked that only these will earn permanent place in people's hearts.
He also said if one leader goes off another will fill the vacancy. Jagan reiterated that people alone will make leaders!
