Jagan Wave sweeps Andhra, YSRC Decimates Opposition
Yeduguri Sandinti Jaganmohan Reddy has achieved an improbable feat in our evergreen state of Andhra Pradesh with a landslide victory in both General and State Elections of 2019. Experts say the political landscape of Andhra Pradesh has been transformed with this seemingly impossible yet marvellous victory at the hustings with the YSRCP now the second largest party in the Lok Sabha from the south, just behind the DMK.
This is a great achievement and credit must be given to Mr. Jagan for systematically raising all key issues before the people and managing to convince them that the incumbents claims were false and bogus. In addition, Jagan’s 3648 km long padayatra (walkathon) across Andhra Pradesh combined with the aggressive campaign against Mr. Naidu has surpassed par excellence. Let us not forget, that Mr. Jagan also came very close to capturing power in 2014 Assembly elections losing by just 1.6 per cent vote margin.
This overwhelming majority is the most decisive mandate for any new government to quadruple foreign investments, increase corporate activities of global companies by addressing their topmost concerns, and better the performance of Naidu’s ex government by removing red tape and other bottlenecks.
The top most priorities of the new government must not only focus on agriculture, creation of irrigation infrastructure (particularly the Polavaram irrigation project), reducing the cost of power generation, welfare schemes and job creation but also ensure that Andhra Pradesh becomes the infotech hub of the country over the next few years. Focusing only on services sector at the cost of critical agrarian sectors and vice versa have resulted in lopsided developments in the past, so must be avoided at all costs.
This massive anti-incumbency wave must be handled responsibly and proved through an efficient, responsive and proactive administration.
We at Vizag Industrial Scan wish Jagan and his Government Best of Luck.
