Amaravati: Government Advisor for Public Affairs Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy said that the list of candidates for Mayors, Deputy Mayors, Chairpersons, and Vice-Chairpersons will be announced on Thursday.
Addressing a press conference here on Wednesday, he said that Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is holding discussions with party colleagues right from the district level about the selection of candidates. He assured that BC's and SC's will be given top priority as part of political empowerment.
On Mydukur and Tadipatri municipalities, he said neither party nor the government will indulge in horse-trading to capture these urban bodies. He said the Chief Minister was very clear about respecting public mandate.
Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy said the results of Mydukur will be decided by a toss if the Jana Sena candidate joins Congress. He said as far as Tadipatri is concerned, the party would go with ex-officio voting and fight legally.
Sajjala said anyone can file an SC ST atrocity case, as the lands grabbed by Chandrababu Naidu belong to Dalits. He said the government is not vindictive against opposition leaders and the law will take its own course.
"Right from the days of opposition, YSRCP leaders have raised the Amaravati land scam. People of Amaravati region have reposed faith in us. They gave us a thumping majority in the 2019 elections. We have a right to investigate and take action against those involved," he added.
