Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and YSR Congress Party president, Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy turned 48 today. His party workers and leaders have been celebrating his birthday for the last few days by aggressively promoting the state government’s welfare schemes.

His party cadres have organised blood donation camps from state to mandal level. They will also be cutting cakes and distributing fruits, food and clothes to the poor across Andhra Pradesh. In many districts across the state, huge flexes and banners have been put up along the roads by local leaders to extend their greetings to Reddy on his birthday.

The party leaders have asked the rank and file to adhere to COVID-19 guidelines while gathering for celebrations. Those who take part in any programme are required to wear face masks and follow social distancing.

The son of late Congress stalwart Y S R Reddy, Jagan Mohan led his party to a landslide victory in the 2019 Assembly elections in the state. Out of the 175 Assembly seats, the YSRCP won 151, reducing the then ruling Telugu Desam Party (TDP) to 23 seats. He formed his own party in 2011 after a fallout with the Congress' national leadership.

Reddy has been receiving warm birthday greetings from his friends in politics and film industry. Wishing him on his 48th birthday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said he prays for wishes of healthy and long life for the leader from the almighty.

Lok Sabha speaker Om Birla wished him good health, well-being and long life in the service of the people of Andhra Pradesh.

“Birthday greetings to the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh Shri @ysjaganji. May you be blessed with good health and long life,” wrote Nitin Gadkari, Minister of Road, Transport and Highways.

Rajya Sabha MP Vijayasai Reddy V also extended his greetings to the Andra Pradesh chief minister in his regional language, posting a picture of Reddy.

Here are some more wishes:

The blessings continue to pour in for the dynamic leader.
