YSRCP will contest polls in all regions

Hyderabad, March 9, 2014: Exuding
its preparedness to face the ensuing elections, YSR Congress has said that it
will pit candidates for all elections in all the regions, will fight the battle
for ballot under the common symbol of fan and district-wise committees will be
formed to monitor the elections to civic bodies, MPTCs and general elections.

“A meeting of the district
convenors was held to discuss the poll strategy under the chairmanship of YS
Jagan Mohan Reddy and Party Honorary President YS Vijaymma which took stock of
the situation and chalked out the programme to face the multiple elections
coming up in close proximity,” party senior leader Konatala Ramakrishna told
reporters here on Saturday after the meeting.

We will contest for all the
posts in municipal elections, Mandal Parishad Territorial Constituencies
(MPTCs), Zilla Parishad Territorial Constituencies (ZPTCs), Assembly and Lok
Sabha polls in all the regions and the Party is taking the polls seriously.

While the campaigning part
will taken up by YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, YS Vijayamma and Sharmila district wise
committees will be formed with convenors and observers to monitor the election
process right from selecting the nominees.

The cadre that was active
in the Party programmes will be nominated from ward members and upwards and our
Party President will tour the entire state for the electioneering. He will be
assisted by YS Vijayamma and Sharmila and the tour programme will be finalized

“The Odarpu Yatra is not
called off and is very much on. We did not get permission to visit some areas
and once it is accorded YS Jagan Mohan Reddy or his representative will
continue the Yatra,” he said.

“As of now we do not have
any tie-up with any political party and we have finalized the names of the
candidates for almost all the seats. We will announce the names at an
appropriate time. Convenors from all the districts have attended the meeting
and our Party will contest polls in all the regions,” he said.

When asked about the
Supreme Court observation and former Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy’s
comment that he will rejoin the divided State, Ramakrishna said: “Kiran Kumar
Reddy could not act firmly when the ball was in his court. He failed to convene
a special session of the assembly to pass a resolution against the division and
did not resign immediately after the decision on division was taken.

Cases were filed in the
apex court by our party representative Mekapati Rajamohan Reddy and many others
belonging to other political parties as well and it would be sub judice
to speak on the subject,” he said.

The Congress government
which was always looking after its own interests did not bother about the
empowering local bodies by holding elections and funds to tune of Rs 3,000
crores could not reach the panchayats for development work.

This is against the spirit
of amendment to article 73 and 74 which empowers decentralization of
governance, he said.
