Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has become the new idiom of Andhra Pradesh polity with his sharpness in decision making, precision in work style, eye for detail, and commitment to usher in a welfare state which earned him a place of pride of being among the best CM of state in the country. For Mr. Reddy, who celebrates his 49th birthday on Monday, the political ride was not a smooth sail, but he had to weather many a storm, handle difficult and complex situations, and walked straight into the hearts of the people by being with them.
Mr. Reddy must be among the very few founder leaders of a political party to become Chief Minister at a young age and created a record of sorts winning 151 of 175 seats in Assembly and 22 of the 25 Parliament seats despite the hostile media and conspiratorial adversaries. What an irony, the tirade against him by adversaries continues even 18 months after assuming office, and they explored and took recourse in other options after being routed in the parliamentary system.
Mr. Reddy has shown determination, stubbornness, and his hallmark commitment in carrying out the governance with transparency and has been rolling welfare schemes, more than what was promised in the manifesto and winning the hearts of the people even during the testing times of Covid-19.
The young Chief Minister has effectively used Direct benefit Transfer (DFT) to bring in transparency and shut out intermediaries and people are now having the feel of governance as money started coming into their accounts. He introduced the Spandana program, which has brought governance closer to the people with stunning transparency. And the promise of prohibition in a phased manner is being effectively implemented.
