May 23, 2021: Two years of victory for YS Jagan Mohan Reddy
It’s been two years since YS Jagan Mohan Reddy won the 2019 general election.
It was the day in 2019 when it was declared that the YSRCP had achieved victory with 151 seats in the Assembly and 23 seats in Lok Sabha, setting a new history in the state. Later, on May 30, 2019, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy was sworn in as the PA CM.
It has been a roller coaster ride for the party and its government as the opposition party has repeatedly tried to introduce an anti-outgoing wave.
It was so surprising to see a series of attacks on temples for a while, which were said to have been a plot by the opposition party to cause unrest among the majority Hindu voters.
But this showed no detrimental effect on the YSRCP in the municipal and panchayat elections. Importantly, the Tirupati Lok Sabha seat was also won by the YSRCP candidate with an overwhelming majority in the recent bi-election.
Further attempts by the opposition and its allied media to project the government as pro-Christian, anti-Dalit, pro-Reddy, anti-establishment, anti-Telugu media in schools, etc. have not changed anything like the YSRCP.
The effective implementation of Navaratnalu, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s election manifesto, despite the burden on the Treasury, turns out to be the main reason for the invincible pro-incumbency wave.
Although there is criticism that development activities are not happening in the state, at the recent assembly session YS Jagan Mohan Reddy hinted that the good social activity that ensures the well-being of the people is the real development, but not the construction of a few skyscrapers.
Overall, YS Jagan’s two-year reign has been in step with the expectations of the majority population and the election results are proof.
