The ruling YSRC party in Andhra Pradesh seems to be in deep troubles with internal politics and other dissident activities. Party supremo YS Jaganmohan Reddy is too cautious to strategise the political moves and plans. The party core comnittee and some loyals are making way ro overcome this serious issue. Now, the forcoming elections are become more crucial to win as several challenges are dominated to succeed.
YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, the chief minister of Andhra Pradesh, has been dissatisfied with developments within the party and in the government. Due to changes inside the party and government, the YSR Congress Party (YSRCP(YSR) )’s situation in AP becomes dire as political momentum grows.
With ministers yelling at their critics, Jagan Mohan Reddy’s cabinet colleagues have already shifted their attention. The opposition, which is primarily made up of the TDP, the Jana Sena Party (JSP), and the BJP, is attempting to unite while being attacked harshly by those in power.
The TDP and the JSP are the YSRCP’s primary areas of attention. The YSRCP’s principal goal is to undermine their efforts to unite. The YSRCP won the 2019 Assembly elections due to a vertical split of votes, according to the statistics. It’s interesting to note that the JSP was essential to the elections.
The JSP led by Pawan Kalyan, which helped the TDP win the majority of seats in the 2014 elections, withheld its support in 2019, and the TDP was forced to concede defeat. In that election, the JSP ran a separate campaign.
With 86% (151) of the seats, the YSRCP achieved a massive win that has never occurred in the history of Andhra Pradesh without division the 175-Member AP Assembly.
Because YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is the son of the illustrious former Chief Minister Dr. YS Rajasekhara Reddy, who lost the opportunity to lead the state in 2014 to N. Chandrababu Naidu’s TDP by just 1% of the vote, voters took a liking to him.
The TDP’s partnership with the BJP helped it win the 2014 elections. Modi had Pawan’s support during that election. Later, however, when Pawan questioned the NDA administration led by Modi, divisions between the two parties became apparent.
Pawan ran unsupported in the 2019 elections. The lack of an agreement between the BJP and the JSP combined with the anti-incumbency issue helped the YSRCP win.
Observing the widespread support for Modi in 2019, Pawan made the decision to join the BJP after the election, and the BJP designated the JSP led by Pawan as its lone ally in AP.
N. Chandrababu Naidu, the leader of the TDP and a former BJP ally, realised that the latter had the support of the general public and gave up trying to bring together anti-BJP forces on a national scale.
However, given the current circumstances, anti-YSRCP groups must come together to oppose the YSRCP. By permitting its AP branch to oppose the state government’s policies on numerous topics while also enjoying the latter’s backing in Parliament for the passing of Bills, the BJP is engaging in political chess with the YSRCP.
As long as the BJP is unable to gain more seats, the cooperation of a regional party from AP is essential. As a result, unlike the Congress and the Communist parties, with which it has significant ideological differences, the BJP is unable to label the YSRCP as its adversary.
Currently, it appears like the BJP is getting set to take on the YSRCP in AP, possibly with the help of a TDP-JSP coalition. However, given its political requirements at the time, it cannot be completely ruled out that the same BJP will be willing to be friends with the YSRCP in the post-election scenario.
Being fully aware that the TDP, JSP, and BJP are some of the opposition parties in AP might join hands against it, the YSRCP appears to be thinking of alliances.
Chief Minister Jagan has been troubled by the internal politics of the party and the administration at this pivotal time as disagreements among party cadres have surfaced. While the YSRCP leadership supports the “why not 175/175” movement, severe divisions among cadres are emerging everywhere.
Jagan is quite confident and relies on his welfare programme, “Nava Ratnaalu.” Like his father Dr. YS Rajasekhara Reddy in 2009, he believes he must maintain his position of authority at all costs.
YSR put in a lot of effort to give the Congress a second victory. But his seat total was lower than it was in 2004. Just eight seats, or more than half of the 294-member House in the united AP Assembly, went to him.
However, Jagan, his son, exhibits unusual confidence and asks cadres, “Why not 175/175?” Since there is no chance of winning every seat in the legislature, this level of confidence may be considered ludicrous. There may be no room for registering such an event given the potential for coalitions between parties. Even the most strong leader won’t be able to win all the votes in a constituency.
According to Chief Minister Jagan, 30 of his 151 strong MLAs have not performed up to pace, especially when it comes to the initiative of “bringing our government to every doorstep.”
Ironically, the welfare programmes put in place by Jagan’s administration benefit the same people who complained about progress. For YSRCP leaders, this is shocking news because they have placed their trust in the recipients of aid programmes.
The YSRCP is “exhorting” the public on whether they should take advantage of the government or inquire about basic amenities in an effort to win them over. The social programmes of YSRCP have benefited almost 87% of the state’s populace.
Many YSRCP MLAs are upset about what is happening in the party and feel that they are not being treated fairly. The leadership’s approach to dealing with senior lawmakers has been detrimental to them.
Anam Ramanarayan Reddy, a senior lawmaker, has lost his in-charge post in Venkatagiri. Ramanarayan is the senior most legislator in the House and has the experience of holding a cabinet portfolio in NTR’s government in the early 1980s.
Additionally, Ramanarayan served in Dr. YS Rajasekhara Reddy’s cabinet, whose leadership has been maintained, particularly in the Nellore area, by the Anam brothers. Dr. YSR was also hesitant to appoint veteran lawmakers at the time, such as V. Purushottam Reddy and Gade Venkat Reddy, who had served in the legislature from 1967, or 11 years earlier than when he entered politics in 1978.
A Telangana regional development board was established by YSR, who appointed Purushottam Reddy as its chairman and welcomed Venkat Reddy into his cabinet. One can infer from these changes that Jagan has to be more adaptable like his father. #hydnews #hydkhabar #hydlive
