Is AP's former home minister Mekathoti Sucharita's husband Dayasagar planning to enter active politics. Highly placed sources say that he could join the Jana Sena and contest the elections. Dayasagar is said to be angry at the way his wife was unceremoniously removed from the ministry and the way some YSRCP leaders conspired to get him transferred out of the state.

Sucharita is the only Dalit MLA to be divested of her ministry. Though her stint as the home minister of Andhra Pradesh was uneventful, there was no major blemish either. She remained steadfastly loyal to YS Jagan and defended his policies and programmes to the hilt. But, when she was removed from the cabinet, she felt deeply upset.

She even contemplated resigning from her MLA post. But, she was dissuaded by the well-wishers. Later, she was made the president of the district YSRCP unit.  But, she remained unsatisfied. She has recently resigned from the post of the district YSCP president. She is said to be of the opinion that there is no scope for her to grow in the party.

Highly placed sources say that her husband Dayasagar, who was an Income Tax Commissioner, wants to contest for the Lok Sabha seat. He is said to be preparing ground for the political entry. However, sources say that Dayasagar and Sucharitha might join the Jana Sena ahead of the 2024 elections.
