The YSRCP boss Jagan Mohan Reddy was the hot favorite among all media groups when it comes to admitting the fact that he will definitely be the first CM for Seemandhra region. Even till six months ago, all opinion polls and political analysts gave similar opinion.
They pointed out that TDP would be finished and it will be Jagan who will emerge victorious but this has proved futile with yesterday’s results. A closer look at the defeat shows that Jagan took up United AP slogan only after Telangana announcement.
This didn’t impress voters. On other hand, TDP chief Naidu immediately rushed to take up the slogan of Seemandhra development than United AP sentiment because everyone started realizing that bifurcation was inevitable.
Meanwhile Jagan’s party couldn’t withstand or control rumors that he was taking up Samaykhyandhra only as part of understanding with Congress. The fact that Jagan was given bail suddenly also strengthened the rumor about Jagan’s understanding with Sonia. All these led to his failure.
