TDP’s Loss in Telangana Elections Brightens YSRCP Prospects
YSR Congress Party is in an uplifted mood that the party has strengthened its base in Andhra Pradesh. The party considers party Chief Jaganmohan Reddy’s marathon walk and the resignation of its MPs from Lok Sabha in protest against denial of Special Category Status as political advantages.
YSRCP spokesperson said, “TDP’s defeat in Telangana elections was the greatest gift for the party as the Year started with TDP’s downfall and would bring YSRCP to power in the New Year.”
YSRCP also considers the failure of TDP to acquire SCS to Andhra Pradesh as a success for them in 2018. YSRCP launched Vanchanapai Garjana (Roar on Betrayal) across the state holding meetings once a month in every district emphasizing TDP’s failure to get the special status to AP. This gave YSRCP a chance to pinpoint how Chandrababu Naidu changed his stand on SCS and package.
