Even before TDP chief Chandra Babu Naidu took oath as Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, crunching has already begun in beleaguered YSR Congress Party. In what is seen as big jolt to YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, sitting Nandyala MP SPY Reddy, who represents Nandyala Parliament, has formally met Chandra Babu Naidu in New Delhi Today.
SPY Reddy officially stated that he has joined TDP after meeting Babu. With this, the strength of TDP-BJP combine in Lok Sabha from Andhra Pradesh would increase by 1 taking the total count to 18 from present 17 out of 25 Lok Sabha seats. Meanwhile, reports are rife that another YSRCP MP, Kurnool Lok Sabha member Butta Renuka too keen to meet Babu and likely to join TDP soon. Butta Renuka’s husband too met Chandra Babu and joined TDP already. Political analysts predict that this is going to have adverse affect on all the MLAs under these two Parliament segments in Kurnool.
It is widely buzzed that Jagan’s attitude is compelling senior leaders like SPY Reddy to shift the party. SPY Reddy is confident to contest again from the constituency if no-confidence motion is moved by YSRCP. Also reports are rife that ED is going to take on YS Jagan very soon as they gathered substantial evidence against Jagan. All these factors are working in favour of TDP and against to Jagan.
