SPY Reddy joins YSRCP, more to follow

Hyderabad: Congress MP SPY Reddy who has been opposing bifurcation of the State has joined the YSR Congress Party. This is being seen as an indicator of more migrations from Congress either to YSRCP or TDP.

SPY Reddy called on YSRCP party president YS Jaganmohan Reddy on Friday evening. Reddy, a two term MP, is the first Congress MP to join Jagan's party after the latter's release from jail on bail. He is likely to submit his resignation from Lok Sabha on Saturday.

Reddy told the media that he secured an appointment with Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar on Saturday. 'I am leaving for Delhi tomorrow morning,' he said. He also said more MPs and MLAs would also quit the party soon.

'If they don't do so, their political future would be at stake,' he said. More migrations likely Animal Husbandry Minister P Viswarup who submitted his resignation on Thursday to Governor has set November 1 as the deadline to quit Congress party. He too is likely to join YSRCP.

It is also said that Minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao and MLA Vanga Geeta are also contemplating to quit Congress party. Srinivasa Rao and Vanga Geeta are said to be in talks with TDP.

However, YSRCP leaders claim that Rao would be joining them. Both the leaders were in TDP before joining PRP formed by Chiranjeevi in 2009.

Another Congress leader Thota Trimurtulu is set to join TDP soon. The names of other leaders like Kasu Krishna Reddy and G Venkat Reddy also figure in the probable list of those who are likely to quit Congress.

Those who want to quit Congress and migrate to YSRCP or TDP are negotiating for an assurance on tickets for 2014 elections. It is said that as the YSRCP has already promised seats to those who had joined the party long back, some Congress MLAs are having second thoughts on joining it.

Senior Congress leader J C Diwakar Reddy said the Congress party and AICC president Sonia Gandhi had become so unpopular in the region that MLAs are scared to contest on Congress ticket. People were not allowing any Congress leader to join the agitation. They don't believe us anymore, he said.
