YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and YS Vijayamma filed their nomination papers amidst fanfare for the Pulivendula assembly and Visakhapatnam Lok Sabha constituencies on Thursday.
YSRCP President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has filed his papers for the Pulivendula assembly constituency with milling crowds thronging to the venue where he addressed the gathering and sought their blessings and thanked them for support and cooperation extended to him and his family members.
“We have gone through turbulent times for the past five years after the death of YSR and I thank every one of you for blessing me and our family with your unstinted support at time of turmoil. I have come here to file my nomination for assembly and in the next few days we will be having elections. With your support the golden era of YSR will return to the state,’ he said amidst cheers from the crowd packed to the capacity.
The state has witnessed agony and I seek your mandate and will return as Chief Minister of the State next time he said and appealed to give a thumping and one-sided verdict to the Party which would a tribute to YSR.
YSR has died in a chopper crash just 100 days after he was sworn-in as Chief Minister for the second time in 2009 and the state has plunged into darkness.
I understand the plight of famers and the hardships you have gone through after the death of YSR and the political system has gone through a phase of divisive politics and it has degraded and decayed.
There is no respect for values and value-based politics and it is time to revive the YSR model of political system and bring in a welfare state, he said and assured that he would bring back the golden era of YSR.
This is the first time YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is contesting for assembly. He was elected to Kadapa Lok Sabha twice earlier.
His mother and Party Honorary President, YS Vijayamma, accompanied by her daughter Sharmila, has filed nomination for Lok Sabha from Visakhaptanam amidst cheers from supporters and well-wishers.
