Why Reddy’s Entry Can’t Help YS Jagan

After a lot of dilly dallying, former minister Anam Narayan Reddy is all set to join YSRCP. Anam has confirmed today that he would be joining Jagan’s party in Visakhapatnam on September 2nd.Anam, who had been on waiting list for very long, has finally got confirmation from Jagan and this made him to make a formal announcement. Anam stated that he would contest wherever Jagan asks him to field. He said he is willing to contest either for Assembly or for Lok Sabha.

Now this is expected to give a big shock to the existing YCP leaders in Nellore district who have strong differences with Anam and hence opposing his entry. Nellore city MLAs Anil Kumar Yadav and Kotamreddy Sridhar Reddy have age-old rivalry with Anam since Anam had obstructed their growth when he was strong in Congress during YSR’s regime. Kotem and Anil have been very good friends and have stood united against Anam brothers in the district.

The demise of Anam Vivekananda Reddy, the younger and stronger brother of Ramanarayana Reddy, has also weakened the Anam brother who had once ruled the district with his younger brother. Now, Anam’s re-entry into YSRCP is likely to invite a flak from Kotemreddy and Anil which in turn likely to effect the prospects of YCP in the district.
