The State is turning too hot with the politicians taking the battles to the streets. The key leaders of the State are on the roads establishing direct contact with the people, much ahead of the next round of elections.
YSR Congress chief Jaganmohan Reddy is on the roads with his Praja Sankalpa Yatra. He had just crossed the 2000 km mark padayatra started from Idupulapaya in Kadapa and heading to Itchapuram in Srikakulam. He is making strides every day of his walk hitting hard at Telugu Desam Party president and Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu. His marathon walk will continue for another six months.
Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan who is aspiring to win a good number of Assembly seats in the next elections too is on the roads. He is currently touring the Uttarandhra region. Started his yatra on May 20 in Srikakulam, Pawan Kalyan will be in the three north coastal districts for next couple of months. In a day or two, he would be completing his yatra in Srikakulam and entering the Vizianagaram district. He too is targeting the TDP and Chandrababu Naidu for the government’s failures and the backwardness of the Uttarandhra.
There is one more new entrant into the State politics, former joint director of CBI, V V Lakshminarayana, who is currently touring Nellore district. Lakshminarayana earned popularity in the State with the popular cases like disproportionate assets cases against Jaganmohan Reddy and Satyam Ramalinga Raju when he was the JD of the CBI. With the popularity that he had gained in these two cases, he had taken voluntary retirement and jumped into active politics in the State.
The Congress had just completed the State wide protest marking four years of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s regime and is getting ready to hold similar protests on June 8, marking four years of Chandrababu Naidu’s regime. The Congress is leaving no stone unturned to hit at Narendra Modi and Chandrababu Naidu.
The Left parties are also constantly in the midst of the people holding protests for the special category status demand. They continue to be with the people on one issue or the other.
The ruling TDP had just done with its annual Mahanadu and the cadre is now prepared to be active for the next one week starting June 2, the bifurcation day. The Chief Minister had set the week-long agenda for the party to start with Nava Nirmana Deeksha on June 2 to Maha Sankalpam on June 8. This year, Chandrababu Naidu had planned to hold this Maha Sankalpa deeksha on June 8 at Nellore, where he plans to hold the fourth anniversary of his government.
Thus with politicians on the road, much ahead of the elections, the State is turning too hot. The heat has to be carried on till the next election, scheduled to be somewhere in May 2019, the summer season again.
