The Telugu Desam has suspended former MP M V Mysura Reddy from the party for "breach of party discipline" after he met YSR Congress president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy on Friday morning.

TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu took serious note of Mysura's breakfast meeting with Jagan and ordered his immediate suspension from the party.

Mysura drove to the Lotus Pond residence of the Kadapa MP

In Hyderabad and had an interaction with the latter, giving credence to talk that his joining the YSR Congress was now a mere formality.

Mysura had been sulking ever since he was denied a second term in Rajya Sabha by the TDP in March this year and had been staying away from the party affairs even in his home district.

He skipped Chandrababu's recent tour of Kadapa district for campaigning for by-elections in three constituencies.

His son has already joined the YSRC and talk was that Mysura too would follow suit.

Incidentally, Mysura contested unsuccessfully against Jagan in the by-election to Kadapa Lok Sabha seat in May last year.

Hailing from Kadapa district, Mysura was a strong Congress leader along with (late) Y S Rajasekhara Reddy and served as the state home minister in early 1990s.

After YSR became chief minister in 2004, he quit Congress and joined TDP and was nominated to Rajya Sabha in 2006.

It is learnt that Mysura will be offered a key position in the YSR Congress.
