GP results reflect CM’s good governance


Amaravati, Feb 22: Attributing the overwhelming victory in Panchayat polls to Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s good governance,  YSRCP has said the Party-backed candidates had won 80.51 percent of seats and confined opposition TDP to just 16.05 percent.
Speaking to the media here on Monday, Minister for Panchayat Raj Peddireddy Ramachandra Reddy said that YSRCP supported candidates had swept all four phases of the polls which is an indicator to the swell in support base of the Party while Opposition TDP has further slipped into ignominy.
The Minister slammed TDP  for taking up fake publicity with distorted numbers boasting that they have won 41 percent of seats. He stated that Chandrababu Naidu tried to manage the system in vain, however, TDP was rejected outright from village level and met its nemesis and will soon fade out.
Meanwhile, at a separate press conference, Minister for Water Resources, P Anil Kumar Yadav said that TDP would have confined to single-digit seats, if there were no YSRCP rebel candidates. He flayed Chandrababu Naidu on celebrating for winning only 16 percent seats and said that Naidu will celebrate even booth level victory in 2024 polls. The Minister dared Chandrababu to step down and prove his statement of winning 41 percent seats in GP polls.
He said that TDP was rejected by people of Chandrababu’s native place, where only eight seats were won and the same scenario was found even in Kuppam, as they are fed with Naidu’s politics and Chandrababu must be ashamed of distorting facts. The Minister Ani criticized Chandrababu Naidu for citing police atrocities as a reason for their defeat and termed polls conducted during TDP regime as Ravanakashtam, while the present elections were conducted in a peaceful way, which was indeed announced by SEC Ramesh Kumar himself.
On the other hand the winning streak of YSRCP will continue in the ensuing Municipal, MPTC and ZPTC polls as well, he said.
