He took a pledge to change the name of West Godavari (dominated by Rajus) to freedom fighter Alluri Seetharama Raju. Jagan participated in the public meeting in the evening, made this key statement. Some of the Kshatriya caste people came and met him and informed that the government have forgotten the sacrifices of Alluri
Freedom fighter Alluri Sitaramaraju fought against the British heroically and till now he has not been honoured. With the blessings of God and people, if YSRCP is voted to power, he would name West Godavari as Alluri district. He earlier said that Krishna district (dominated by Kammas) will be named after NTR recently. It was a politically damaging move for YSRCP.
