Even as the 2024 elections are one-and-half-year away from now, both the ruling party and opposition party in AP have begun their preparations. CM and YSRCP party chief Jagan has given shock to Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy, minister Buggana Rajendranath, former ministers Kodali Nani and Anil Kumar Yadav. All the four have been removed from the key post of regional coordinators.
However, Balineni Srinivasa Reddy has been exempted and allowed to continue as the regional coordinator. Rajyasabha MP Ayodhya Ramireddy, who also happens to be founder of Ramky group, has been appointed as the new Regional Coordinator of YSRCP.
Meanwhile, 8 district presidents have also been shown the door by Jagan. This came just after Jagan’s previous ultimatum to party leaders to show aggressiveness in work or else he had warned them to replace them with new ones. Apparently, 3 out of 8 district presidents have voluntarily asked to be relieved from the roles whereas 5 others have been replaced by the party’s top brass.
Kuppam YSRCP in-charge MLC Bharath has been removed from the post of Chittoor district president. Deputy CM Narayanaswamy has been appointed as the new district president of Chittoor. MLAs Pushpa Srivani, Avanti Srinivas, Sucharita, Burra Madhusudhan Yadav, Y Bala Nagireddy, Kapu Ramachandra Reddy and Chevireddy Bhaskar Reddy have been removed from the district president posts.
There are no changes in the responsibilities of Minister Peddireddy Ramachandra Reddy and his son MP PV Mithun Reddy. Vizianagaram district responsibility has been shifted from Botsa Satyanarayana to YV Subba Reddy. Alluri Seetharamaraju district responsibility has been shifted from YV Subba Reddy to Botsa Satyanarayana.
The new regional coordinator for Kurnool and Nandyal districts is Akepati Amarnath Reddy.

Beeda Masthan Rao is given the responsibility of Bapatla. MLA Bhumana Karunakar Reddy is given Palnadu responsibility which was earlier with former minister Kodali Nani.
