Another attempt of the TDP to malign the ruling YSRCP on the issue of religion was busted, this time in East Godavari district. A TDP leader's ration shop has deliberately printed the image of Jesus Christ on the obverse side of the ration card with an intention to malign the YSRCP. This was exposed by the YSRCP activists.

Ever since YS Jagan, a practicing Christian, became the chief minister, there has been a concerted attempt to portray him as a supporter of Christian conversion and even old bus tickets printed during the TDP regime were used to malign YS  Jagan. In a similar incident in Vadlamuru in Peddapuram mandal of East Godawari, a ration card dealer published the image of Jesus Christ on the ration cards given to the people. The ration shop owner Mangadevi is wife of a TDP leader. Earlier, the ration cards had the image of Lord Venkateswara in 2017 and Saibaba in 2016. But this time, he deliberately chose Jesus Christ's image.

The ration card with the image of Jesus was made viral on the social media, sparking outrage among the Hindus. However, enquiries showed that this was a deliberate attempt aimed at vilifying the ruling YSRCP. Action is now being initiated against Manga Devi.
