Jagan has all these qualities and I assure you that the state will leapfrog in terms of development and I appeal you to strengthen his hands,' Vijayamma further said.

"To develop the new state faster we need to have numbers and your valuable vote to YSRCP will place us on a strong pedestal in Delhi to get funds, she said.

"The local issues of sugar factory and others will be solved amicably as our party leaders will be available and I will also be here to serve you along with the people of the north coastal Andhra districts," she added.

Ms Vijayamma said Ms Reddy will fulfil all the poll promises and the five files he will be signing on the first day of assuming office will be that of Amma Vodi which will help mothers to educate their two children. Rs 1,000 will be deposited monthly for the school education of two children, for undergraduate course it will be Rs 1,400 and for graduation it will be Rs 2,000 per month.

Increasing the pension to Rs 700, a Market Stabilisation Fund waiver of DWACRA loans and decentralised of administration our other four promises which Jagan immediately fulfill after assuming power, she said.

Apart from them, he will build 50 lakh houses with pattas in five years, provide gas subsidy, and give 150 untis of power for Rs 100 and ensure 7 hour power supply to farmers in daytime. Closing of belt shops and employing local women in police force to check the social evil is also on the party agenda," she said.
