Political Analysts questioned, 'What is the need for YCP Leadership to encourage defections if it can win elections with the existing MLAs/MPs/Party In-charges? How can Jagan accommodate all the defectors? What will be the situation of Leaders who have been working for strengthening the party in the past 5 years? Accommodating a new member before the elections is like doing injustice to the existing Leader who strived hard for the party against all the odds for years'.
YCP needn't have to encourage Opportunistic Politicians when there is a positive wave. Leaders who were denied preferred seat by TDP Leadership and those who lack the confidence to win on TDP Ticket have been looking at YCP. What will party gain by welcoming all of them? Jagan should be very cautious while dealing with leaders who aren't reliable.
