Will Sharmila enter into AP politics also?
In a sensational statement, YS Sharmila, the estranged sibling of AP Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, dropped hints that she could now shift her focus to Andhra Pradesh. She said during a media chitchat she may even set up a political party in Andhra Pradesh too. She asked what was wrong if she started a political party in Andhra Pradesh.

Sharmila said that she has chosen a particular route and is progressing on the same route. Sharmila is the chief of YSRTP, which is focusing on Telangana. She has even launched a padayatra in Telangana. However, the yatra has been temporarily put on hold citing the Covid situation.

Interestingly, YSRCP's renegade MP Raghuramakrishnam Raju has recently said that YS Sharmila would soon set her foot in Andhra Pradesh politics. He said that Sharmila would play an active role in Andhra Pradesh also. Sharmila's latest comments seem to endorse Raghurama Krishnam Raju's prediction.

The relations between YS Jagan and YS Sharmila have soured after Jagan came to power riding a massive wave of support and sympathy in 2019 elections. Though Sharmila played a key role prior to 2014 elections and took out a 3000 km long padayatra, her claims were largely ignored. This led to deep differences and Sharmila charged a new course by forming the YSRTP with focus on Telangana. Jagan and Sharmila have not attended any programme together in a long time.
