YCP MPs on back foot for next elections

  • Severe anti incumbency on YCP MPs in many constituencies
  • Won due to Jagan’s charisma and vote against TDP in 2019
  • Not seen in Parliamentary constituencies
  • Win in 2024 Lok Sabha  doubtful for them

Amaravati: 2019 election results were a boon for YCP candidates. Their victory is mainly due to Jagan’s charisma and vote against ruling party, TDP, resulting in 151 assembly seats and 21 MP seats. But majority of MPs were not seen  in their constituencies after the victory. There are reports that these MPs were busily involved in disputes with local MLAs rather than focusing on development.

The scenario in AP is entirely different when compared to 2019 elections. TDP is slowly emerging, Janasena trying its best to show presence, Jagan became lone warrior in the party once again and if we consider all these factors, YCP may not retain seats which it won in previous foray. Even CM Jagan knew it very well who is busy in ringing alarm bell to sitting MPs to set right the situation or get ready to give seat to other.

As per ground reports from Andhra Pradesh, MPs who are in trouble are M.V. Satyanarayana( Vizag), Reddappa( Chittoor), Nandigam Suresh ( Bapatla), Gorantla Madhav( Hindupur), Talari Rangiah ( Anantapur), P.V. Mithun Reddy ( Rajampet), Vanga Geetha ( Kakinada), Balasouri( Machilipatnam), Chinta Anuradha( Amalapuram), Ongole MP Magunta Srinivasulu Reddy is not seen actively in party programmes and same with Narasaropet MP Lavu Srikrishnadevarayalu. If AP CM does not focus on these Parliamentary constituencies, the result may tilt towards opposition.

The anti incumbency is in mid way against Government and it is time for AP CM to nullify it. Schemes alone can’t guarantee win for YCP in upcoming elections, parallel to that YCP should focus on development programmes and factors like bringing investments for State, creating employment and infrastructure which will fetch party to sit on top chair once again. Will party stretch on these in coming days or end with five year term mainly depends upon the performance of sitting MLAs in the coming one year.
