Andhra Pradesh state opposition leader YS Jaganmohan Reddy said that sale and consumption of liquor will be banned in AP in three phases if the YSRC is elected in 2019 assembly election. Jagan said that firstly illegal liquor vends in villages will be shut down, followed by a campaign against drinking, the liquor prices will be increased to such a level that only rich will be able to buy it. And then we will ban liquor completely in the state. Mr Reddy at the two-day meeting of the party in Amaravati said 'The future is ours, once I become chief minister, I will bring back the golden rule of our late leader YS Rajasekhara Reddy'. 

Mr Reddy added that 'I have a strong fancy to become the chief minister of the state. I wanted to rule for 30 years in a manner that will make every household keep my picture, along with that of my late father, after my demise'. Jagan released newly-coined slogan 'Anna Vastunnadu... Bhavishyattu Manade... (brother is coming, future is ours) to every home in the state. Mr Jagan added that he will launch programmes for farmers, students, women and pensioners. He said social security pension will be hiked to INR 2,000 from INR 1,000.

He said Chandrababu government has done false promises before the 2014 election. As soon as I become Chief Minister, I will distribute INR 50,000 to each small and marginal farmer holding less than five acres of land. He said a price stabilisation fund of INR 3,000 Crores and calamity relief fund worth INR 2,000 Crores will be launched for farmers in anguish, adding INR 15,000 Crores will be kept aside for women self-help groups. YSRC appointed Prasanth Kishor as political strategist of YSRC. Mr Jagan added that  'Like he helped Narendra Modi become Prime Minister in 2014, Kishor will guide us to victory in 2019.
