YSRCP chief Jagan Mohan Reddy in order to come to power not only played the victim card to perfection, first in 2014 when he was sent packing to Chanchalguda Jail by the Congress President Sonia Gandhi and later enacted Kodi Katti drama in 2019 and finally realized his dream. In the process, he offered many freebies to all sections of people.
It is known that the people of India, especially those belonging to the south will cast their votes moved by sentiments and weighing the freebies offered by the politicians. Jagan made good use of them and became the Chief Minister of the state. From then on, instead of focussing on developing the state, and infrastructure and inviting new companies, concentrated on offering freebies even at the cost of plunging the economy in dire straits by getting debts and loans in various forms from various organizations and agencies.
Now, with no source of loans in the offing, CM Jagan Mohan Reddy decided to slash the freebies for various communities in various schemes coming out with various riders and conditions. This is making people furious and with just two years for the upcoming assembly and general elections, it may impact in the ruling party in a bad manner. With a lack of jobs, the people of Andhra Pradesh are made dependent on the freebies offered by CM Jagan. Now that Jagan's government slashed many freebies, speculation is that Jagan will face a shock defeat.
Inside talk is there is a massive surge and undercurrent passing among the people and among all sections in Andhra Pradesh and Jagan is all set to face a shock defeat in the 2024 elections just like how TDP chief Chandra Babu faced in the last elections.
