Jagan Orders YSRC to Counter TD's Toxic Campaign

VIJAYAWADA: Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, as president of YSR Congress, instructed party rank and file to take welfare and development schemes of the state during past four years into the masses.

The YSRC chief wanted all party-affiliated wings to gear up for the big task of putting to good use the nine months of time left for the 2024 elections.

Jagan wants ruling party leaders and cadres to utilise this period to effectively reverse the toxic campaign of Telugu Desam against the YSRC government.

Sensing increasing confusion among party cadres regarding elections, the Chief Minister made it clear in the recent Cabinet meeting that the state government will complete its full term and go for elections only as scheduled in 2024.

“There will be no early elections,” he said categorically.

Following YSRC chief’s clarification, ministers and party rank and file, in addition to YSRC affiliated wings and organisations, have plunged into action to achieve the “Why Not 175” target given by Jagan.

Ruling party is now concentrating mainly on four tasks – filling vacant posts, organising SC, ST and Muslim minority meetings in the state on lines of Jayaho BC meeting held successfully in the past, promoting Jagan Mohan Reddy government’s welfare and development programmes door to door, and examining the feasibility of appointing some more people in addition to presidents of the affiliated wings for strengthening the party and emerging victorious in the 2024 elections.

Party's SC wing promptly held a meeting under the aegis of Jupudi Prabhakar, MP Nandigam Suresh, MLC M. Arun Kumar and MLA K. Anil Kumar. They decided to organise the state-level SC Mahasabha in Vijayawada and give a key post to Relli community. Suresh said all Dalits should be united and work towards making Jagan the Chief Minister again and again.

YSRC state women's wing president Potula Sunitha and working president Varudu Kalyani are planning to spread within women the various welfare, empowerment and development programmes taken up by the Chief Minister for women, who will be a deciding factor in the elections.

Likewise, meetings are being held by YSRC’s farmers' wing, labour division, tribal unit and BCs’ groups.

MLC Janga Krishna Murthy is concentrating on formation of BC divisional and district and mandal-level committees as soon as possible. Significantly, he is underlining that Jagan Mohan Reddy's government is committed to a census of various BC castes, a demand which has remained unfulfilled since time immemorial.
