Pedduru (Chittoor): AP Leader of the Opposition and YSRCP chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy said that the party's success in 2019 elections should begin with a resounding victory in Kuppam constituency.

Interacting with villagers during the Praja Sankalpa Yatra here on Thursday, he pointed out that BCs constituted a dominant part of the demographic profile in Chandrababu Naidu's constituency. Asking a pointed question he wondered as to what Chandrababu's contribution to the BCs here was? He also said that Kuppam constituency would benefit greatly if Chandrababu Naidu was defeated. YS Jagan declared that if people elect the party's candidate from Kuppam, Chandramouli, he would be inducted into the cabinet. Moreover, he would also ensure greater development of Kuppam, compared to Chandrababu's contribution, YS Jagan assured the people there. YSRCP's Navaratnalu, based on its manifesto would usher in Rajanna Rajyam and light up the lives of the suffering poor across all segments of society, he said.

YS Jagan also asserted that on completion of his padayatra, he would undertake a bus yatra during the course of which he would visit every single mandal of the region. Meanwhile, the Chandrababu Naidu government appears rattled by the overwhelming public response to the YSRCP chief's Praja Sankalpa Yatra especially in the Chief Minister's native district. It has strengthened its surveillance apparatus and is reported to be using drone cameras as well as body cameras to capture every single movement made by the Leader of the Opposition and those around him, apart from keeping tabs on those meeting him.
