Is former minister and YSR's friend DL Ravindra Reddy planning to quit the YSRCP? On Dasara day, he suddenly burst out against the YSRCP government and said that the state was on a downward spiral due to the policies being pursued by YS Jagan Mohan Reddy Many see this as in indication that he is going to leave the YSRCP and contest the next elections on TDP ticket.

DL, who was a many-time MLA from Mydukur constituency, joined the YSRCP ahead of 2019 elections. He campaigned for YSRCP candidate K Raghurami Reddy. At that time, YS Jagan had assured to take care of his interests in future. However, once the YSRCP government was formed, he was left in the lurch. However, DL remained silent for over two years.

Now he has criticised the way agriculture was being handled in AP and said that the state was hurtling towards a financial disaster. He said that the Jagan Government has lost its direction. Political watchers feel that Ravindra Reddy is indicating that his stint with the YSRCP is over. Sources say that he might contest on the TDP ticket from Mydukuru in the next elections.

DL Ravindra Reddy and Mysoora Reddy were close associates of YSR and all the three have begun their political careers at the same time. However, the relationship between DL and YSRCP was at best 'blow-hot-blow-cold.' It remains to be seen what impact DL has on the course of politics in Myduluru.
