In the first Assembly Session, YS Jaganmohan Reddy stunned Chandrababu Naidu by saying TDP will lose Main Opposition status if he offers consent to the Opposition MLAs who are in touch with his Party.
During a TV Debate, YCP MLA Kotamreddy Sridhar Reddy claimed 8 TDP MLAs are in touch with his party to shift loyalties to YS Jaganmohan Reddy. He added, 'Two MLAs are directly in touch with Me'.
MLA Karanam Dharmasri declared 12 TDP MLAs are in touch with the YCP Leadership. 'Though TDP MLAs are in touch, YCP isn't keen to open doors for them,' he made it clear.
If 12 MLAs jump into YCP, TDP will end up losing Main Opposition status in Assembly. Chandrababu Naidu is focussing on who are those MLAs looking forward to joining YSRC.
However, TDP MLA Buchaiah Chowdary ruled out any possibility of his party legislators joining YCP. He exuded confidence that Telugu Desam will retain its lost glory in 2024.
