Repeat Kuppam success everywhere, Jagan eggs on YSRCP cadre
Calling upon the YSRCP cadre to gear up the party from village level for the next elections due after 19 months, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Jaganmohan Reddy on Wednesday
AMARAVATI: Calling upon the YSRCP cadre to gear up the party from village level for the next elections due after 19 months, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Jaganmohan Reddy on Wednesday asked them to spare no effort henceforth keeping next elections in mind.
Interacting with the YSRCP cadres from Addanki Assembly constituency in Bapatla district here on Wednesday, the Chief Minister said that there was a negative wave against TDP in the constituency and the party cadre should take advantage of the situation. He said that Rs 1,081 crore was disbursed under various welfare schemes in Addanki constituency in the last three years, benefiting 93,124 families. With these funds, 6,382 houses were granted, 9,368 beneficiaries were provided land pattas and ration cards were sanctioned to 47,123 families.
Referring to the Gadapa Gadapaku (Governance to every doorstep) programme undertaken by the YSRCP, the Chief Minister said that the party activists should go ahead with the programme as a team explaining the welfare schemes and trying to solve the issues raised by people. Terming the programme unique and unprecedented, he said that nowhere in the country had any political party taken up such a unique initiative, two years ahead of elections. He referred to the grant of Rs 20 lakhs to every village secretariat that brought revolutionary changes in rural ambience in the form of rhythu bharosa kendras (RBKs), boosting rural economy.
"Local leaders and cadre should make use of the opportunity and stand united like a family to achieve the target of 175 seats in the next elections. With 87 per cent of the families benefiting through our welfare schemes in every village, majority people in each village are favourable towards YSRCP," the Chief Minister said, observing that majority people in every constituency will also favour the YSRCP as a result.
Making it clear that he was doing his duty as the Chief Minister, Jagan said that it was their turn to do their duty to ensure the victory for the party in all the constituencies and repeat the success that the party had achieved in Kuppam.
