After EC rap, YSR reverses decision

Wednesday 28th September 2022 07:03 EDT

A day after the Election Commission of India wrote a letter to the YSR Congress, seeking clarification on the party’s presidential elections, the YSRC leadership clarified that the party will have election for the post of president and there will be no concept of president for life. The party had at its plenary in July elected chief minister and YSRC president YS Jagan Mohan Reddy as its president for life. In its letter, the ECI said electing a party president for life is anti-democracy. The YSRC leadership claimed that Jagan had rejected the party resolution and thus it had died a natural death. The party leadership will reply to the ECI, stating that Jagan was not elected president for life.
