YSRCP chief Jagan Mohan Reddy meets PM Modi in New Delhi ahead of taking oath as Andhra Pradesh CM

Reddy invited PM Narendra Modi for his oath-taking ceremony on 30th May.

After registering an impressive victory in the Vidhan Sabha and Lok Sabha polls in Andhra Pradesh, Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) chief Jagan Mohan Reddy met PM Modi in New Delhi today before taking his oath as Andhra Pradesh CM on May 30.

In a stunning election victory, YSRCP won 22 out of the 25 Lok Sabha seats from Andhra Pradesh, completely demolishing TDP, whose chief Chandrababu Naidu was attempting to unite the opposition against the NDA alliance. TDP was completely routed as it managed to bag paltry 3 seats.

In the Vidhan Sabha elections in the state, which happened simultaneously along with the Lok Sabha, YSRCP registered a landslide victory. YSRCP stormed to power winning 151 seats in the 175-member assembly. Telugu Desam Party of Chandrababu Naidu got a severe thrashing in the state polls as well where it could only win 23 seats. 1 seat was won by actor Pawan Kalyan’s party.

Jaganmohan Reddy meets PM Modi

Jagan Mohan Reddy has said that he will persist with the demand of special category status for Andhra Pradesh, and it is expected that he raised the matter during his meeting with the PM. It is being speculated that YSRCP may provide issue-based outside support to the NDA government in the centre. Reddy invited PM Narendra Modi for his oath-taking ceremony on 30th May.

After the election results, Jagan Mohan Reddy’s party took a swipe at Chandrababu Naidu claiming that Chandrababu illegally purchased 23 MLAs but on May 23, he managed to get only 23.

Following Jagan Mohan Reddy’s victory, PM Modi took to Twitter to congratulate the YSRCP chief.

Chandrababu Naidu’s TDP was a party of NDA alliance until 2017 when he broke off his ties with the alliance over the demand of getting special status for the Andhra Pradesh state. He then proceeded to solicit various opposition parties in order to cobble up a united opposition. But after PM Modi’s spectacular victory in the Lok Sabha elections, all his efforts went in vain as BJP emerged as a single largest party winning 303 seats on its own.

Yeduguri Sandinti Jaganmohan Reddy is the son of former CM of Andhra Pradesh Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy. In 2009, he was elected to the Lok Sabha on a Congress ticket. Following the death of his father in 2009, most leaders in the state unit wanted him to be made CM of Andhra, but it was rejected by the Congress high command. In 2010, he resigned from Congress due to differences with central leadership, and later formed YSR Congress Party.
