Politics is closely linked to sentiments. That YSRCP chief Jagan is also not an exception to this has become clear once again. All in Andhra Pradesh politics consider East Godavari district as a sentiment. The district had its own special place even in the undivided state. All parties believe that the works started from Rajahmundry, Kakinada and Amalapuram areas in the district definitely succeed. After the announcement of poll schedule, Jagan initially thought of postponing Kakinada meeting. However, when party cadre reminded him of East Godavari sentiment he went ahead. With ‘Shankharavam’ meeting at Kakinada proving a super hit, the happiness of YSRCP leaders and cadres knew no bounds.
Jagan first arrived in Rajahmundry for Kakinada ‘Shankharavam’ meeting and went straight to the house of former APIIC chairman S. Shivarama Subrahmanyam. Hailing from Vysya community and a disciple of former CM Rosaiah, Subrahmanyam and large number of his followers including corporators and former corporators joined YSRCP in the presence of Jagan. Offering party ‘kandava’ Jagan admitted all of them into the party. After the announcement of poll schedule, Jagan has completely changed his style. He is giving much importance to sentiment. If necessary he is even ready to climb down a bit. By going to Subrahmanyam’s house to admit him into the party, YSRCP chief has shown that he is ready to adopt all strategies to win the elections.
