YSRCP restraining voter slips distribution to non-supporters: TDP


In a second missive to the Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) from the Telugu Desam Party (TDP), state president Kinjarapu Atchannaidu alleged that the ruling Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) is influencing the booth level officers (BLOs) not to distribute voter slips to non-YSRCP voters on Friday.

“Ruling YSRCP has been influencing BLOs to distribute voter slips only to YSRCP supporters. As a result, it has been observed that the BLOs are not distributing voter slips to neutral voters and to supporters of the TDP in Tirupati parliamentary constituency,” alleged Atchannaidu.

He claimed that the ‘government paid’ village and ward volunteers are allegedly distributing voter slips instead of BLOs.

“Such practice is a gross violation of the model code of conduct, discriminatory in nature and does not provide an equal level playing field to all the political parties,” highlighted the TDP state president.

According to Atchannaidu, many voters in the constituency are not aware of their polling station and other details to exercise their franchise on Saturday.

He claimed that due to the alleged non-distribution of voters’ slips, many people may not turn up to vote, leading to lower voter percentage.

Hence, the TDP leader called on the CEC to ensure that the voter slips are distributed to all the voters without discrimination.

Meanwhile, Atchannaidu alleged that even though the Election Commission has issued a memo not to allow outsiders into Tirupati parliamentary constituency after the end of campaigning at 7 p.m. on Thursday, the ruling party is allegedly harbouring a large number of outsiders.

“It has come to our notice that a large number of outsiders are being brought from neighbouring Assembly segments and districts in private buses during dark hours into Tirupati parliamentary constituency,” he alleged.

Attchannaidu alleged that around 300 people are staying at Nehru hotel in Anjimedu, 50 people from Punganuru at Sambasiva Reddy’s house and 100 more from the same place at BC colony, all in Yerpedu mandal, totalling 500 from Punganuru.

“Further, there is a strong reason to believe that Chandragiri YSRCP MLA is sending a large contingent of YSRCP henchmen from Chandragiri, Chittoor district to vitiate the election atmosphere in Tirupati parliamentary constituency,” he alleged, making similar claims on Peddireddi Ramachandra Reddy.

Finally, the opposition leader alleged that the YSRCP leaders are forcefully procuring postal ballots meant for government employees and also those aged above 80.

“Hence, it is pertinent to conduct an inquiry into the misuse of postal ballots and take appropriate action against the culprits,” Atchannaidu claimed.

YCP MLA tests Covid +ve amid rise of 2nd wave


YCP Tadikonda MLA Vundavalli Sridevi has got infected with the Coronavirus disease. She has been suffering from breathing problems besides fever. After the test, she was declared as Coronavirus positive and placed under special treatment. She has told the media about her infection and that he health condition is stable. The Chief Minister’s Office has enquired about her health and instructed the health officials to take precautionary measures.

Meanwhile, there is a steady rise in the 2nd wave infections in Andhra Pradesh too. In the last 24 hours alone, over 4,200 positive cases are reported from across the State. The State Government has already put in place various preventive measures like mandatory wearing of face masks, use of sanitisers, etc.

It is reported that till today, over 9.37 lakh people have got infected in AP ever since the outbreak of the dreaded disease. Over 7,330 of those infected persons succumbed to the disease.

The overall situation across the country is slowly deteriorating. Maharashtra has already announced Janata Curfew in view of rising infections there. This is forcing the health authorities to cover more and more people under the vaccination programme.

YCP-TDP campaigns go personal in Tirupati bypoll


Right from day one, the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) have been commenting vigorously on the personality of YCP nominee Dr. Gurumurthy in the Tirupati by-election. Nara Lokesh, GVL Narasimha Rao and such leaders have been saying that if elected, the YCP nominee would only do more massages as the personal physiotherapist for Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy. He would not be of any help to the people in the Parliament.

All said and done, the YCP leaders were unable to counter this personal criticism against Dr. Gurumurthy. It was a fact that the Chief Minister had given the Tirupati ticket to him just for his services as the personal physiotherapist. It was more because Dr. Gurumurthy rendered his services to Mr. Jagan during his state-wide Padayatra before the 2019 elections.

Finally, YCP’s most controversial Minister Kodali Nani has come forward to counter the personal attacks by the TDP and the BJP. He has selected the TDP nominee for specific attack. Kodali has asked the voters to vote for only such a candidate who would have the correct body physique to move quickly to solve people’s problems.

Kodali’s remarks are indirectly aimed at TDP nominee Panabaka Lakshmi who is overweight. The Minister’s message is also clear that their nominee Dr. Gurumurthy has got a healthy and agile body. On their part, the TDP leaders are saying that experience and capabilities are required to raise people’s issues in the Parliament but not body building or physique.

Naidu-YCP plans to attract liquor lovers votes


It is near impossible to manage the polling day without distributing liquor to some voters. This is why the rival leaders are giving so much focus to the liquor issue in the present Tirupati bypoll campaign. Especially TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu is making a repeated mention of how high rates are destroying the families of liquor lovers in AP. The poor people are also suffering on account of unhealthy and cheap liquor brands being supplied in the State right now.

Naidu’s plan is obviously to attract the liquor lovers’ vote bank. On their part, the ruling YCP leaders are coming out with their unique solution to humour drunkards. They know pretty well how much anti-YCP feeling is going on among the liquor lovers in the Tirupati parliamentary segment. But the good point is that the memory of the drunkards is very short and they can easily be influenced if they are given free liquor in the last few days of the polling day.

Now, the TDP’s only worry is that the YCP leaders are changing their strategy this time. They are not going to give AP liquor to the voters. The YCP leaders are trying to bring illegal liquor from Tamil Nadu in a big way. This will be supplied free of cost to the voters prior to the polling day.

As a final appeal, the TDP leaders are cautioning that if the voters fall victim to Tamil Nadu liquor, then nobody can save them from the YCP regime.

BJP questions eligiblity of YCP Tirupati nominee


Just a few days ahead of the April 17 polling, fresh questions are being raised on the eligibility of YCP nominee Dr. Gurumurthy to contest in the Tirupati by-election. The BJP has asserted that Dr. Gurumurthy is not a hindu and hence he is unqualified to contest in the SC reserved Tirupati parliamentary segment.

BJP AP incharge Sunil Deodhar has brought this issue to the force. He has demanded that the election officials take note of this and disqualify the candidature of the YCP nominee. These sudden and unexpected turn of events have put Dr. Gurumurthy into self defense.

In the absence of any alternative, Dr. Gurumurthy has begun providing evidence to show that he is a Hindu. Only the Hindu believers will be considered for the SC and ST status. All those converted to Christianity would not be allowed to enjoy reservations usually given to the SC, STs.

Now, Dr. Gurumurthy has released photos showing his pujas offered to the village deity before submitting his nominations for the Tirupati bypoll. He is blaming the BJP for using cheap gimmicks to get a few votes. Whatever, the BJP plan seemed to have served its purpose.

YSRCP MPs wil resign if TDP wins Tirupati LS bypoll!


All the YSRCP Lok Sabha members will resign to their posts if the TDP wins the upcoming Tirupati Lok Sabha bypoll to be held on April 17, declared senior YSRCP leader and minister Peddireddy Ramachandra Reddy on Sunday (today).

Peddireddy said the YSRCP has accepted the challenge thrown by TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu to treat Tirupati bypoll as a ‘referendum’ on two-year old Jagan government.

However, Peddireddy has put a condition that three TDP Lok Sabha members along with YSRCP rebel MP Raghurama Krishna Raju, who is with TDP camp now, should also resign, if YSRCP wins.

If Chandrababu agrees to our challenge, the YSRCP is also ready to accept his challenge.

Peddireddy alleged that TDP, BJP and Janasena are ‘hand in glove’ in Tirupati bypoll.

He said these three parties entered into a tactical understanding to defeat YSRCP in Tirupati but people are behind YSRCP and YSRCP wil retain Tirupati seat with a bumper majority.

Peddirdddy rubbished reports that Jagan cancelled his election meeting in Tirupati on April 14 due to fear of losing the election if he campaigns as there is public anger against Jagan.

The minister clarified that Jagan cancelled his meeting only because of increasing corona cases in Chittoor and Nellore districts.

Book SC, ST case against Naidu: YCP to DGP


It all looks like an atrocities case is going to be booked against TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu himself this time. Already, tens of cases have been filed against the TDP leaders across the State under the SC, ST atrocities act. Now, YCP MP Nandigam Suresh and his party Dalit MLAs have met and complained to DGP Gautham Sawang against Naidu. They sought filing of an atrocities case against the TDP chief for passing insulting comments on YCP Tirupati MP nominee Dr. Gurumurthy.

The YCP leaders say that a posting was made on social media to defame and humiliate Dr. Gurumurthy. The TDP handiwork is suspected behind this. Nandigam Suresh told the DGP that Chandrababu Naidu and Nara Lokesh might be involved in this defamatory posting.

As such, they sought SC, ST atrocities cases and also charges under the cyber laws. The complaint comes amidst the rising political heat in the State. The TDP and the BJP are making all out efforts to give a tight fight to the YCP in the Tirupati electioneering.

The YCP, which is cool and confident of victory till yesterday, has now launched threats once again to intimidate the Opposition and thereby to win with a massive majority.

Tirupati bypoll exposes infighting in YSRCP!


The ruling YSRCP remains strong and unbeatable in Andhra politics since 2019 Assembly polls.

However, the infighting among YSRCP leaders is adversely affecting the ruling party.

More than opposition parties, it’s the YSRCP own leaders who are harming the interests of the party.

The upcoming Tirupati Lok Sabha bypoll has yet again exposed how infighting has reached alarming levels in YSRCP.

Following the directions of YSRCP chief and AP CM YS Jaganmohan Reddy, the party’s top leaders held roadshows and a public meeting in Tirupathi on Sunday.

Shockingly, not even 1,000 people turned up for these meeting. With this the road shows conducted by ministers, YSRCP MLAs and other party leaders turned out to be a disaster.

YS Jagan reportedly issued stern warning to warring leaders to mend their ways else he will be forced to take stringent action against them.

Jagan told party leaders that if roadshows and public meetings are held without reasonable crowd, then it will send a wrong signal that people are losing interest in YSRCP.

Ministers Anil Kumar Yadav, Peddireddy Ramachandra Reddy, deputy CM Narayana Swamy, MLAs Prakash Reddy, Varaprasad Rao, MLC Balli Kalyan Chakravarthy, TTD chairman YV Subba Reddy, Rajahmundry MP Margani Bharat and YSRCP leader Nedurumalli Ramkumar Reddy held roadshows and public meeting in Tirupathi.

However, the local YSRCP leaders did not cooperate and mobilised the crowd due to infighting among them.

BJP will end YSRCP’s ‘rowdyism’ in Andhra: Sunil Deodhar


Giving examples of states where the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had defeated other ruling regional parties across India, the party’s national secretary and state co-incharge Sunil Deodhar claimed on Wednesday that the party will end the alleged ‘rowdyism’ of Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP)as well.

“We finished goonda raj of SP – BSP in UP. With Nitish, we finished brutal raj of Lalu in Bihar. We uprooted CPIM’s 25 years mafia raj from Tripura. On 2nd May, we will finish goons rule in WB. In AP too, I am sure that we only can fight and end rowdyism of YSRCP,” said Deodhar.

Referring to the YSRCP and the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) as family enterprise parties, Deodhar claimed he had exposed their alleged frauds.

“Only BJP – JSP (Janasena) can fight this mafia raj of ruling YSRCP,” he claimed.

Meanwhile, BJP leader and Rajya Sabha MP G. V. L. Narasimha Rao claimed that people in the Tirupati bypoll will choose between a candidate who served Reddy and the party’s candidate Ratna Prabha who served people with distinction.

However, depriving the state of the special category status, selling away Visakhapatnam Steel Plant, skyrocketing fuel prices and resorting to religious politics may not be very helpful to the BJP in the southern state.

Vijay Sai-Veerraju tweet war on ‘future CM Pawan’


The Tirupati byelection battle has intensified in the form of heated debates at personal level. The day began with Vijay Sai Reddy launching a mocking attack on Jana Senani Pawan Kalyan. The YCP MP has said Pawan has been daydreaming to become Chief Minister if the BJP-Jana Sena candidate wins just deposits.

Interestingly, the BJP leaders quickly responded even before the Jana Sainiks launched their counter attacks. BJP AP President Somu Veerraju has advised Vijay Sai to stop making such intolerable comments. Veerraju has asserted saying indirectly that the future CM of AP will be Pawan Kalyan.

Veerraju has also told Vijay Sai that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has himself asked the BJP leaders to give utmost respect to Pawan Kalyan. Saying so, Veerraju said, “Our boy would become the Chief Minister. You would all be witness to this.”

The BJP leader further advised Vijay Sai Reddy not to forget his situation in the past. Veerraju even passed a serious comment, warning that their party would certainly send cabbages to Vijay Sai and YCP leaders. Once the bail is cancelled, the YCP top leaders would go to jail where they would use the cabbages for making curries.

Can TDP face YCP-BJP onslaught in Tirupati?


The political circles are eagerly waiting to see how the rival parties will clash with their strategies in the Tirupati bypoll. TDP nominee Panabaka Lakshmi has already filed her nomination and started campaigning. YCP nominee Dr M Gurumurthy and BJP nominee K. Ratna Prabha will file their nominations today. While Gurumurthy chose to seek blessings at Dr Ambedkar statue, Ratna Prabha is visiting Tirumala for Sri Vari blessings.

Tirupati parliament segment consists of four assembly segments in the Nellore district and three districts in the Chittoor district. In both these districts, the YCP has gained an indisputable upper hand over the TDP in the 2019 elections. Especially, Chittoor is posing a bigger challenge for Naidu considering rising threat from Minister Peddireddy Ramachandra Reddy, Chandragiri MLA Chevireddy Bhasker Reddy and their party followers.

It was Peddireddy and Chevireddy who played a crucial role in ensuring a historic defeat to the TDP in the panchayat polls in Chandrababu’s own Kuppam assembly segment in the Chittoor district.

With renewed enthusiasm, the YCP has been claiming that they would aim at a majority of 4 lakh this time. The YCP got 2.28 lakh majority in 2019. On its part, the BJP is threatening to split the TDP vote considerably. Doubtless to say, it is going to be a greater challenge for Naidu to face the YCP-BJP onslaught.

YCP MLA dies due to prolonged illness


YCP’s Badwel MLA Dr Venkata Subbaiah has passed away while receiving treatment for a prolonged illness. For the past few weeks, the MLA has been suffering relapses of his disease. He received treatment at a private hospital in Kadapa. He has later shifted to Badwel where he breathed his last.

Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy, Opposition Leader N Chandrababu Naidu, Deputy CMs, MLAs and others have conveyed their condolences to the bereaved family members. The YCP activists and sympathisers arrived at the MLA residence after hearing about the news.

The YCP leaders have recalled the services rendered by Dr. Venkata Subbaiah both as a doctor and as a legislator for the local people.

With his death, the Badwel bypoll would have to be held in the next six months. Already, Tirupati MP seat bypoll is slated for April 17 because of the death of YCP MP Balli Durgaprasada Rao. He died due to Covid infection at the height of the epidemic spread last year.

BJP to complain to CEC on YCP ‘bogus votes’


The Bharatiya Janata Party has intensified its attack on the Jagan Reddy regime in the midst of the Tirupati byelection. The BJP leaders say that the ruling YCP leaders have enrolled over 2 lakh bogus voters in just the Tirupati parliamentary constituency. When this is taken to the notice of the local revenue and police officials, they have not taken any steps to correct the electoral irregularities.

Considering this situation, the BJP AP leaders have decided to take the bogus voters issue to the notice of the Central Election Commissioner. BJP Secretary Satya Kumar has told the YCP leaders that it would not be a genuine victory if they try to win the elections through wrongful methods.

Satya Kumar said that it was with these bogus votes only that the ruling YCP leaders in the State managed to get massive electoral successes in the recent local body and civic elections. This time, the same would not be allowed in the Tirupati MP byelection. Pressure will be mounted on the Chief Election Commissioner to ensure that no irregularities would be allowed in the electoral rolls.

The Tirupati bypoll is going to be held on April 17. Already, the battle lines were drawn between the main contenders – the YCP and the TDP. Till yesterday, the YCP leaders said that they would aim at increasing their majority to more than 3 lakh votes in the present election. But now, the YCP top leaders have set a target of 4 lakh votes majority. Whether it will give a fight or not, the BJP is making its presence felt by threatening to use its power at the national level to remove the ruling party advantage from the YCP in the Tirupati poll.

‘Country will take note of YSCRP’s majority in Tirupati bypoll’


Senior YSRCP leader and Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams chairman Y.V. Subba Reddy said on Wednesday that the whole country will take note of the ruling party’s majority after it wins the Lok Sabha bypoll in Tirupati, scheduled to be held on April 17.

“The whole country will take note and talk of YSRCP’s majority in the Tirupati by-election,” said Reddy.

He claimed that the people of the Parliamentary constituency are ready to give a thumping majority to the ruling party. Commenting on YSRCP’s Tirupati bypoll candidate M. Gurumoorthy, the TTD chairman said the party is putting people from the weaker sections and Dalit communities on a high pedestal to empower them, and selecting the 36-year-old physiotherapist is a part of this mission.

Recalling the recent rural and urban local body polls, Reddy said that people not only supported the YSRCP, but gave the opposition parties a run for their money.

“In similar fashion, the Tirupati bypoll will be a lesson for all the opposition parties,” he added.

Has opposition already accepted Tirupati by-poll loss: YSRCP


After Andhra Pradesh Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Somu Veerraju criticised the village and ward volunteer governance system launched by Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, the ruling YSRCP has questioned the opposition parties for already accepting defeat in the recent Tirupati by-poll.

V. Vijayasai Reddy, a senior Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) leader and Rajya Sabha MP, on Monday asked if the opposition parties have already accepted their defeat in the Tirupati by-poll or are attempting to pin the blame on the volunteer system after losing the election.

These people should stop crying over the volunteer system which is winning international accolades, he added.

“Jagan Mohan Reddy launched volunteer system won international accolades for taking government schemes to the people and people should not cry over those liaising agents,” he opined.

Somu Veerraju alleged that 50 to 60 per cent of the volunteers were YSRCP activists.

He said the BJP has already put in a system, the ‘Page Pramukh system’, in all the states of the country where party ‘karyakartas’ (activists) work voluntarily without wasting public money.

“This ‘Page Pramukh system’ has been transformed into a volunteer system here.”

He challenged the YSRCP to appoint its activists without money and claimed that the volunteers are being used to threaten.

However, the volunteer system has received good appreciation from several quarters, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

During a video conference with the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister a few months ago from Tirupati, Modi appreciated the village and ward volunteer governance system and told him that it is worth emulating.

Likewise, Karnataka government officials also visited Anantapur district to study the grassroots governance system.

Jagan ration door delivery to face court cases


The ration dealers association of Andhra Pradesh is raising its voice against the YCP Government’s door delivery scheme. They say that they are not against the door delivery directly but their only plea is for ensuring reasonable income for them in the face of reduced PDS income.

The dealers deplore that after the introduction of door delivery vehicles by Jagan Reddy, the common public have stopped coming to their shops. As a result, they are not getting both PDS and non-PDS incomes. The Jagan regime has introduced the door delivery scheme without finding alternative measures for the survival of the ration dealers.

The national food security act has provisions for ensuring professional security to the ration dealers. As per this law, the dealers can sell non-PDS items also in order to provide for their family members. It is on this right that the ration dealers are now approaching the court against the Jagan Reddy regime’s door delivery scheme. There is no alternative for the YCP regime but to create alternative income opportunities for the dealers all over the State.

Interestingly, several other States are also promising door delivery schemes on the lines of the AP model. As a result, the ration dealers are preparing to take up this issue at the national level.

Campaign on welfare, development for Tirupati by-poll: Jagan

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) founder Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy on Friday instructed his party leaders to rely on promoting the government’s development and welfare activities as the poll strategy for the forthcoming Tirupati by-election on April 17.

“Take the development and welfare activities of the state government to the people and chalk out a strategy so that the results of the by-election should ensure that the nation looks towards Andhra Pradesh,” said Reddy.

During the by-poll preparedness review meeting, he introduced YSRCP’s candidate, M. Gurumoorthy, to the leaders at his camp office.

Reddy called on the leaders to canvass how the state is transparently implementing welfare schemes irrespective of caste, religion and political affiliation without corruption and bias.

The Chief Minister instructed the party leaders to visit each and every house in the Parliamentary constituency and explain the government’s activities.

He also called on them to publicise the commitment of the state government towards benefiting and empowering women.

“YSRCP won a landslide in the local body elections by God’s grace and the whole country will be observing Tirupati by-election and the result of this by-poll should be a message. One minister will be appointed for each Assembly segment as in-charge in addition to an MLA,” the Chief Minister noted.

He cautioned the party leaders not to be over confident and told them to work with coordination to ensure Gurumoorthy’s victory with a good majority.

Minister Peddireddi Ramachandra Reddy, Balineni Srinivas Reddy, Perni Venkatramaiah and a host of other ministers and leaders attended the review meeting.

Meanwhile, the four week stay by the High Court in the CID probe against Telugu Desam Party (TDP) supremo Nara Chandrababu Naidu can be seen as a lifeline for the party to focus on the Tirupati by-election for which TDP was the first party to declare a candidate, Panabaka Lakshmi.
