VIJAYAWADA: The YSR Congress has claimed that the rural local body polls that it won massively on Sunday was a referendum on the Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy-led YSRC government’s administration, its developmental push and welfare programmes.
Minister for water resources Anil Kumar Yadav said the people ignored the “false propaganda” of the Telugu Desam and other Opposition parties and reposed their confidence in the YSRC government. “These results increase the YSRC’s responsibility towards providing transparent governance to the people and we are rededicating ourselves to the people on this occasion,” he said.
In this context, the minister challenged TD MLAs to submit their resignations and face fresh elections if they had an iota of confidence left that they can retain their seats.
He said the YSRC has continued its winning streak in MPTC and ZPTC elections. “The landslide victory in the recent polls reflects the endorsement of the people’s faith in the governance of Jagan. The people have reposed their trust in the good governance of the chief minister and this is reflected in the huge mandate the people gave to YSRC in all the elections,” he said.
