Once a strong enemy to his father and erstwhile AP CM YS Rajasekhara Reddy has been joined YSR Congress party President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s bandwagon.
Strong TDP leader from Kurnool district in Rayalaseema region Gangula Prabhakar Reddy along with his strong followers switched loyalties to YSR Congress in the presence of Jagan.
Gangula has been maintaining distance from ruling Telugu Desam ever since YSR Congress leader Bhuma Nagireddy from the same district joined TDP. Since then, Bhuma has been given importance in the TDP and Reddy was completely sidelined.
Incidentally, Gangula was also TDP in-charge to Allagadda assembly constituency from where Bhuma daughter Akila Priya won election. Bhuma has been interfering in the party affairs in his daughter constituency which did not go well in Gangula group in the last one year. To protect his political future, Gangula forced to join YSR Congress, leaders said.
