The party is targeting local body polls and is keen on continuing the victory march.
A separate corporation likely to be set up for implementation of 'Navaratnalu' scheme.
Vijayawada: Chief Minister and YSR Congress president Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy will appoint party leaders in the nominated posts soon.
According to party sources, Jagan wants to fill the nominated posts with party leaders as early as possible in view of local body elections. Nearly, 5,000 posts including chairmen of various corporations, the market yards and the temple committees would be given to leaders of YSR Congress party.
Already the party leadership has identified that nearly 20,000 posts are available in the State to be filled with the party leaders.
Jagan has already discussed the issue with the senior party leaders. He wants to give a message to the rank and file of the party and the YSRCP will give utmost priority to leaders who worked hard for the success of the party. Moreover, the local body elections are round the corner. The YSR Congress president has already given a road map to important leaders on local body elections. He is very keen to continue the victory march in the local body elections following the YSRCP's landslide win in the Assembly elections.
Jagan Mohan Reddy wants to encourage the party leadership at the grass-root level by filling the nominated posts. The previous TDP government did not fill majority posts due to financial constraints.
Moreover, several posts were filled with the leaders just two years before the end of the government's tenure. The TDP leaders were displeased over the delay in appointment to the nominated posts. At present, the YSR Congress does not intend to disappoint its leaders.
Already, rumours doing rounds in political circles that several MLAs including R K Roja may get important corporation chairman post with a Cabinet rank.
Especially, the YSR Congress is considering the names of senior MLAs for RTC chairman post. Likewise, the State government has also planned to float a corporation exclusively for the implementation of Navaratnalu scheme. Similarly, the post of the chairman of the proposed corporation would be given to a senior MLA.
