It will be a clean sweep by YSRCP: Jagan

Pulivendula (YSR Kadapa
dist), May 9, 2014: Asserting that the heavy turn-out in the elections in Seemandhra
indicates a total sweep and the verdict would be decisive and one-sided in
favour of YSRCP, the party president YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has reiterated that
they would support any party in Centre that would safe-guard the interests of
the state.

Speaking to reporters here
after the polling was over, he said: “as per the preliminary
estimates the voting percentage is more than 75 % and this is like a torrent
that would sweep away the divisive forces and give a thumping and decisive
mandate to YSRCP.”

When asked who will the
Party support at the Centre, he said:” It is not Modi, Tom, Dick or Harry. Our
concern is only the development of the new state. We do not surrender to Delhi
like what Chandrababu Naidu has done but will play a pivotal role in the
formation of the government at the Centre and upkeep the Telugu pride.

Development of the State is
high on the agenda as the Congress has divided the state irrationally and the
Bill was pushed through with intrigue with Congress, BJP and TDP being party to

The outgoing Prime Minister
has read out a letter in the House and the contents of the letter did not form
part of the Bill. They have taken Hyderabad away from us and did not name where
the new capital will be and how much funds they would give.

Hyderabad is the engine of
growth as 75% of VAT comes from there and the city accounts of 60 % of the total
revenue. The Centre has said it will give special status to Seemandhra but did
not specify the benefits it will get and how long they will be continued.

The Bill is very ambiguous
and people of Seemandhra have used their wisdom and voted in big numbers. I
thank them, the cadre, leaders and all those who extended support to us for the
past 4.5 years to our struggle and the dawn will break ushering in a very
positive and decisive result, he said.

When asked about the
election-related incidents, he said these are sporadic and they occurred when
TDP leaders did not follow the rule book and tried to rig the polls.

“However, I see a clear
sweep from Srikakulam to Kuppam in favour of YSRCP, this time,” he said.
