The next assembly election in Andhra Pradesh is well over three years from now but political parties in the state have already started preparing for the same.
While Janasena formed an alliance with BJP, TDP is looking to join hands with any political party that suits their ideology.
Meanwhile, the ruling party YSRC is said to be looking to form an alliance with left parties, CPI, CPM, and Lok Satta.
Apparently, Jagan feels that forming political alliances will only boost YCP's prospects and has been moving accordingly. Moreover, CPI, CPM, and Lok Satta have a clean political image which would only help YCP if they form an alliance.
Notably, Lok Satta chief JP Narayana has been supporting YCP government's decisions of late and that is adding more weight to these claims.
Jagan might soon be initiating talks with CPI, CPM, and Lok Satta regarding a potential alliance.
That said, Jagan has been against any sort of political alliances till date and as a result, YCP contested on its own in the previous two elections. We need to wait and see if he will change his stand for the next election and form political alliances. The next election in Andhra Pradesh is in 2024, unless the central government calls for Jamili election in 2022.
