A political storm is going to hit Andhra Pradesh as the ruling YSR Congress and Opposition parties are expected to start their activities in the run-up to the General Elections 2024 when voters would elect the new MLAs and MPs also.
The ruling YSR Congress is launching a house-to-house campaign and the main Opposition TDP (Telugu Desam Party) starting a year-long tour of 26 districts.
Generally, election campaigns begin six months or one year prior to the election schedule.
This time, however, political campaigns aimed at voters for the 2024 elections have already started two years ahead of polls in 175 assembly constituencies.
Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy decided to go into public and started attending public programmes after the Coronavirus infections ebbed.
Jagan Mohan Reddy decided to follow in the footsteps of his father and former CM of erstwhile united Andhra Pradesh YS Rajasekhar Reddy by conducting Rachhabanda meetings to connect the masses.
Further, the CM instructed all legislators to visit at least 10 village Secretariats and villages for 20 days a month under ‘Gadapa Gadapa Ku YSRC’ (house-to-house visit) and to interact with the people to know field-level reality about development programmes and welfare schemes of the YSRC government.
He already started the election campaign by launching a scathing against TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu and Jana Sena Party (JSP) chief Pawan Kalyan on 7th April during the Volunteers felicitation programme at Narasaraopet.
