Jagan Analyzes Defeat, Reminds Party of 40% Vote Share

The Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) faced a significant defeat in the recent Assembly elections, dropping from 151 seats in 2019 to just 11 seats now. To analyze the reasons behind this loss, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy met with MLAs, defeated candidates, and key leaders at the Tadepalli office. Despite implementing 99% of their manifesto promises and benefiting people through DBT with ₹2.7 lakh crore, the results were surprising to Jagan. He emphasized that no community was left out of the welfare schemes, yet the overwhelming support seemed to have vanished.

Jagan reminded the leaders that the party still secured 40% of the votes, underscoring that their struggle isn't over. While addressing EVM concerns, he clarified that they couldn't speak without evidence. He stressed that he still possesses the fighting spirit despite his age.

Jagan expressed optimism that the public would soon recognize Chandrababu's deceptions and promised that YSRCP would regain support by 2029. He highlighted the responsibility of leaders to support party workers facing attacks and encouraged everyone to stand by each worker, urging them to remove the pain of defeat from their hearts.

Addressing the Assembly sessions, Jagan noted that with their reduced numbers, attending the Assembly might not be very beneficial. Instead, he suggested taking their fight to the people and gave a clear indication that they would give the new government six months before holding them accountable for their promises.
