Jagan Refers to Chandrababu, Lokesh, Balakrishna, and Pawan as Non-Locals:
Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy has referred to Telugu Desam Party chief N. Chandrababu Naidu, Nara Lokesh (Naidu’s son), Balakrishna (Naidu’s brother-in-law), and Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan (whom Reddy referred to as an “adopted son”) as “non-locals.” He made this statement at an event during the inauguration of the Jagananna Housing Colony in Samalkot, Kakinada district, where he addressed the public.
During his speech, Reddy emphasized his government’s accomplishments in housing, stating that they had constructed 7.43 lakh houses out of the 31 lakh sanctioned for the state’s impoverished population. However, he also accused Chandrababu of obstructing such projects with court litigations, comparing him and other political leaders to mythological monsters attempting to disrupt sacred rituals.
Reddy went on to criticize Pawan Kalyan, describing him as a “package star” who prioritizes his business interests over everything else. He accused Kalyan of mocking the Hindu traditional marriage system and raised concerns about his treatment of women. He questioned the credibility of both Chandrababu and Kalyan among the public and accused them of pursuing politics for their personal gains.
In contrast, Reddy highlighted his government’s achievements, emphasizing the implementation of various welfare schemes, the creation of government jobs (with a focus on marginalized sections), and efforts to empower women and promote social justice. He urged the people to vote for the Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) in the upcoming elections if they believed they had benefited from his government’s policies.
