Do or die situation for YS Jagan in Kovuru

 The victory in the ensuing by-election in Kovuru constituency of Nellore district is said to be very crucial for the YSR Congress party. It’s almost a do or die situation for party president YS Jagan.
YSR Congress party has announced Prasanna Kumar Reddy, who dumped TDP after becoming an MLA, as its candidate in the by-poll. Apart from Jagan and Vijayamma, till now no other leader contested from the YSR Congress party ticket. Prasanna Kumar Reddy is first person, outside the family of Jagan, to contest on the party ticket.
The party sources say, Jagan will tour the Kovuru constituency on March 2nd, 3rd and 4th to ensure victory of his party candidate. “Jagan wants to send a message to all the political parties and the people of the state with this by-poll. Winning the Kovuru by-election would send strong signals to everyone that party is very strong at the grass-roots level,” said a YSR Congress leader.
It may be recalled that Jagan has voluntarily skipped the by-elections in 6 constituencies of Telangana claiming that he respects the Telangana sentiment. So, out of 7 constituencies where the upcoming by-elections will be held, YSR Congress would be contesting only in Kovuru.
On the other hand, losing the by-poll is surely gonna make life miserably for Jagan, who is already in neck-deep trouble with the CBI probe on his assets and Emmar Scam. So, it’s a must win situation for the party!
