YSR Congress party president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy has emerged as the first preference for the netizens, who took part in the online poll conducted by Greatandhra.com.
As many as 22,234 online readers of Greatandhra.com took part in the opinion poll conducted on the topic: “Who will be the next chief minister of Andhra Pradesh in 2019?”.
The poll began at 7.22 am on April 10, 2018 and closed on 12.33 am on April 12.
According to the poll outcome, as many as 7502 voters expressed view that Telugu Desam Party president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu would retain power in 2019 elections as well. The total percentage of the voters who expected Naidu’s return was 33.74.
However, Jagan clearly edged out Naidu in the poll. As many as 8,968 people who took part in the online poll, accounting for 40.33 per cent of the total voters, said Jagan would be the next chief minister.
On the other hand, only 5,764 people, accounting for 25.92 per cent of the total votes polled, said Pawan Kalyan could become the next chief minister.
Thus, Jagan emerged as the first choice of the Greatandhra.com readers. Obviously, they were impressed with the tremendous response he has been getting to his ongoing padayatra.
The other factors like Naidu’s sudden volte face on special category status issue, anti-incumbency wave building up in the state and allegations of corruption on him and his party leaders etc, might also have made people think that Jagan could be a better option compared to Naidu.
