In an interview, former TDP leader JC Diwakar Reddy who expected that Congress would not survive in the state, if division takes place, told that he never expected that TDP would taste a bitter defeat in the election. He told that Chandrababu Naidu and Jagan Mohan Reddy wanted to be in power so they have come up with different strategies.
JC added that Chandrababu ruled for approximately 15 years and people wanted a change. So, they elected Jagan and he introduced ‘Navaratnas’ which grabbed all the attention. He further added that Jagan has the backing of Modi and Modi has a magical wand which helped YSRCP to score a tremendous victory.
