The YSRCP is leaving no stone unturned to ensure a record majority in the Tirupati Lok Sabha (SC) by-election on April 17.

Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy has selected his personal physiotherapist M. Gurumoorthy as the party candidate for the by-election.

The Chief Minister, who reviewed the poll preparedness with senior party leaders and Ministers, directed the party leaders to ensure that they take to the notice of the people the plethora of welfare schemes and development in the State.

“I want the results to be seen by the entire country. Prepare an action plan to ensure our candidate gets record majority. I want you to tell the people our policy and ideology of working for people, irrespective of their identity, caste, religion. Our governance is marked by transparency and accountability. The message of good governance should reach every doorstep in Tirupati Lok Sabha constituency,” said Mr. Jagan Mohan Reddy.
