The ruling YSRCP is facing a big headache with the rebel MP Kanumuru Raghu Rama Krishna Raju. The Narsapuram Parliamentarian is not leaving any stone unturned to target the government and his episode is giving sleepless nights to YCP. When the issue is still increasing the political heat, the YCP suffered another big shock.
For the past few days, media reports are abuzz that former Cabinet Minister Balineni Srinivas Reddy is in plans to leave the party and there is a possibility that the ex-Minister might join the Janasena party floated by Powerstar Pawan Kalyan.
The speculations started hitting the headlines after Balineni Srinivas Reddy accepted the challenge thrown by Janasena's chief. Not just accepting the challenge, the ex-Minster even thanked Janasenani for the opportunity to remember what he has done as Handlooms & Textiles, Spinning Mills Minister for the handloom sector.
An ex-Minister leaving YCP is not a big thing. But Balineni Srinivas Reddy is a relative of Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and Balineni happens to be the uncle of Jagan.
Balineni Srinivas Reddy's episode became a big sensation. As he was not given a second chance in the Cabinet, he has been unhappy with YCP reportedly, and this added fuel to the speculations on leaving YSRCP, led by YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and wearing Janasena party shawl.
Amid this, Balineni Srinivas Reddy reacted to the news and termed the news fake. Rubbishing the news, he said that there is no truth in the news and he just thanked Pawan Kalyan for nominating him to the Handloom sector challenge as he did his best for the sector when he was the Minister of the concerned portfolio.
Expressing severe dissatisfaction with the fake news about him getting spread, Balineni Srinivas Reddy said that he is here because of the YS family and the family gave him political opportunities.
Needless to say, Balineni Srinivas Reddy's episode gave a near heart attack to the YSRCP. Though the ex-Minister made it clear that there is no truth in the news, the issue is a big shock as Jagan's uncle leaving the party would be a big blow to YCP.
