YSRC to remain in power till last day' without early polls

VIJAYAWADA: YSRC general secretary and government adviser on public affairs Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy has rejected speculations of early Assembly polls in AP.

“We respect the people's decision, we will rule for five years and will fully utilise time till the last day,” he told the media here on Thursday.

Sajjala claimed that Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy has faith in the people as he had fulfilled his promises and implemented various welfare and development programmes.

“There is a lot of clarity about elections in the state. We need full time. We will serve till the last day. We will work. We will explain what we did so far. Only then will we go to the elections. We have said this in the past. We say this again. There is no possibility of early elections,” he asserted.

He recalled that Chandrababu Naidu had tried to win the sympathy of the people after the Alipiri incident but his efforts proved futile. “Naidu and his associates conducted a false campaign about early elections to protect TD leaders and cadres. There are suspicions that Chandrababu is looking to get Pawan Kalyan into his team by projecting a possibility of early elections.

Sajjala claimed, “Chandrababu, who was the CM from 2014 to 2019, used to go to Delhi and do something in the dark. But CM Jagan Mohan Reddy, whenever he goes to Delhi and meets anyone, says it openly. The CM is seeking from the Centre what is due to AP and there are results to his visits.”

He said Y.S. Sharmila formed a party in Telangana, so she takes the decision herself as she is the president of a party. Whatever decision Sharmila makes regarding politics is up to her.”

The adviser refuted allegations of a YSRC involvement in the selection of Daggubati Purandeswari as the state president of BJP.
