Hyderabad, Nov 10: In what could be a big setback to newly-formed YSR Congress party in Andhra Pradesh, 26 MLAs who had shown their loyalty to Jagan Mohan Reddy, son of former chief minister of Andhra Pradesh Y S R Rajasekhara Reddy, are now set to come back to their parent party where they had fought the election and won earlier.
The 26 MLAs, including some senior most leaders, were reportedly insulted by the harsh behaviour of YSR Congress chief Jagan Mohan Reddy. "He does not respect us during meetings, and said things like, if you you do not want to stay here, you go back..." said a YSR Congress MLA to daijiworld Hyderabad correspondent on the condition of anonymity.
"Disappointed by his dictator-like attitude, many of us are planning to rejoin Congress" he said.
This could be good news for the Congress, as it has been facing crisis from all ends, including rebellion MLAs and Telangana issues.
These political developments reportedly unfolded in the southern state of Andhra Pradesh, in the backdrop of continued strike for Telangana state.
Speaking to our correspondent, Andhra Congress chief Botsa Satyanarayana has indicated that the news is true, and that there are 'several' MLAs who want to rejoin Congress in the coming days.
On the other hand, TRS party is wooing some Congress and TDP MLAs under thier 'Operation Akarsh'. But the TRS operation has hit a roadblock after indications that the central government might announce separate statehood for Telangana soon.
