Will work hard for peoples welfare: Jagan after landslide victory in Parishad polls

Vijayawada: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S Jagan Mohan Reddy on Monday said the results of ZPTC and MPTC elections has increased his responsibility and claimed that the government had implemented 95 per cent of its promises.

In a video message to the public, the Chief Minister said that by the grace of God and people's blessings YSRCP had swept the elections. The landslide victory in the Parishad elections has increased his responsibility even more, he added.

In the panchayat elections, YSRCP had registered a victory with 81 per cent votes by winning in 10,536 panchayats out of the total 13,031 panchayats. Similarly, in the municipal polls, the party secured 99 per cent votes and in the recently held ZPTC and MPTC elections, the party won 98 per cent and 86 per cent of the votes, respectively. It secured 8,249 MPTCs out of 9,583 MPTCs and of the total 638 ZPTCs, it won 628.

Jagan said he was indebted to the people who stood by the government and assured them he would work hard for their welfare. He said that over 95 per cent of the promises given in the manifesto have been implemented.

Recalling the 2019 general elections, he said that YSRCP had formed the government by winning 151 seats out of the total 175 Assembly seats (86%) and 22 MP seats for 25 Lok Sabha constituencies (88%).

Slamming the Opposition, Jagan said TDP leaders and its friendly media are constantly conspiring to destabilize the state government and are unable to accept their defeat in the local body elections. All the elections were held on party symbols by issuing A and B forms to contesting candidates and there is nothing like Opposition boycotting the elections, he said.

He further alleged that the Opposition had acted irresponsibly by postponing the polls and vote counting by approaching courts and creating hurdles for good governance. If the elections were completed in 2020, all these elected bodies would have been functional during the COVID-19 pandemic, he added.
