Two more Cong MLAs may go over to Jagan camp

June 01, 2012 00:45 IST

Two more Congress members of Legislative Assembly on Thursday appeared to be switching loyalty to YSR Congress of Kadapa Member of Parliament Jagan Mohan Reddy.

D Chandrasekhar Reddy from East Godavari district and Jayamani from Vizianagaram district today expressed solidarity with YSR Congress and its honorary President Y S Vijayalaxmi who is currently campaigning in the coast districts of AP for the June 12 by-elections.

Bypolls to 18 Assembly segments and one Lok Sabha seat are being held in the state next month. The ruling party legislators said they will announce their future course of action after consulting their supporters in their constituencies.

Two other Congress MLAs, Venkata Sujay Krishna Ranga Rao (Vizianagaram district) and A K Srinivas (West Godavari district) have already announced their decision to work under the leadership of Jagan who is in jail in connection with a disproportionate assets case.

State Congress President Botsa Satyanarayana has expressed confidence that there would be no problem for the party with the change of loyalty by some MLAs.

Meanwhile, a Telugu Desam Party MLA, C Ramakotaiah, is also said to be unhappy with his party and will soon decide his course of action.
