I have toured in my constituency of Narsapuram in West Godavari district and people of the constituency and majority of the people elsewhere in the state are of the firm opinion that Mr Jagan Mohan Reddy is the most popular leader and liked by many for his policies and principles.
Nr Krishnam Raju, an industrialist and considered to be the strongman of West Godavari district, said that the minor differences arising out of communication gap earlier had been ironed out and it is like homecoming as he was with YSRCP initially and has returned to its fold.
We are family friends and our association goes a long time with late Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy as well, he said that ‘Mr Reddy is need of the hour in the state politics.’ (UNI)
