YSRCP chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy on Thursday, 28 March, appealed to the people of the state to ensure that the ruling party sweeps all the 175 Andhra Pradesh Assembly and 25 Lok Sabha seats in the elections.

The Chief Minister urged people to reject the NDA alliance of TDP, Jana Sena, and BJP, and called it “anti-people” while addressing a public meeting at Nandyal.

“Take forward the winning streak of YSRCP while showing the exit door to the opposition from politics. For the first time in the country, the poor in Andhra Pradesh are getting due respect in the last 58 months,” Jagan said.

Attack on TDP

Further, he asked the people to decide whether they wanted door-to-door welfare and the development saga to continue for the next five years by electing the YSRCP or taking the state backwards by 10 years by choosing the TDP and its allies.

Earlier, Jagan sought to know why TDP supremo N Chandrababu Naidu could not bring about change in a small village like Yerraguntla in Nandyal district.

The Chief Minister conducted a gram sabha (village meeting) in Yerraguntla and interacted with the villagers. The ruling party passed some slips around and took suggestions from the villagers in written form.

He informed them that he had extended the village welfare schemes worth ₹49 crore.

Referring to Chandrababu Naidu, Jagan said people brag about themselves and their experiences.

Further, the YSRCP chief claimed that the lives of people have improved under the YSRCP rule and the system was reformed.
