Ex-TDP minister Mohan Reddy joins YSR Congress

Press Trust of India  |  Hyderabad 

Accusing the leadership of neglecting party workers, former minister Mohan Reddy today joined YS Jagan Mohan Reddy-led YSR Party along with his supporters.

He was welcomed into the YSRCP fold by Jagan who offered him a party scarf.

Speaking to reporters, Mohan Reddy accused the leadership, which is in power in Andhra Pradesh, of "losing the grip on the party" and neglecting party workers.

"We have seen a leader in YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and have joined the YSR Party," he said.

According to sources, Mohan Reddy crossed over to the YSRCP, the principal opposition party in Andhra Pradesh, as the leadership was reportedly not in favour of his candidature for the Nandyal Assembly bypoll, necessitated due to the death of the sitting Bhuma Nagi Reddy.

The Commission is yet to announce the schedule of the byelection.
