In the review meeting that took place today with Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, he directed the Roads and Buildings Department officials to take up each assembly constituency as a unit and ensure that good roads are laid in the areas. He even asked them to use state of the art technology to repair roads wherever necessary, and asked them to go ahead with the Full Depth Reclamation (FDR) technology for roads in districts like Guntur, Krishna, East and West Godavari, where it is common for roads to sink, due to the soil type.
Given that Jagan has not paid any attention to the condition of roads in AP until now, since he became the CM in 2019, it is coming as a major surprise that he is now suddenly interested in repairing the roads of the state. It is to be noted that he made no comment even when the Jana Sena Party took up an entire Twitter movement against the condition of the roads.
With the general elections just a year away, it looks like Jagan is trying his best to reclaim the CM chair, and to get the adoration of the people. Consider that there has not been any development in the state all, for the five years that he has been the CM for, it is to be seen whether the people will vote for the YSRCP again or not. Fact remains that the YSRCP is not in a highly favorable position in the state, however.
