Hitting people with sentiments is something our political parties know by heart. No party is an exception. The TDP boss Chandrababu Naidu may blame YSRCP for using sympathy factor in by polls but even he is no different.
Babu has to remember that after Alipiri attack on him, he preponed the polls from September 2004 to April 2004 but this did not work out. From then on, TDP has been struggling to get to power and this election is like a do or die for them.
Now, after a gap YSRCP Chief Jagan Mohan Reddy is using mother sentiment in Vizag to maximum and is expecting to reap good dividends. The plus for him happens to be his father YSR’s image and impact but it has to be cashed wisely.
Moreover, by-polls are different from general elections where cadre matters and it has to be seen whether Jagan can indeed succeed with Mother sentiment this time and will it help Vijayamma become an MP from Vizag!
