Vallabhaneni Vamsi likely to join YSR Congress
Vamsi hugged Jagan Reddy, YSR Congress, TDP, Telugu Desam Party, Vangaveeti Radhakrishna, Jaganmohan Reddy, Vijayawada
Vijayawada:YSR Congress party president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy in Vijayawada, creating ripples in the political circles. On Friday when a former MLA of Kapu community Vangaveeti Radhakrishna joined his party and a TDP Kamma leader Vallabhaneni Vamsi hugged him in public, indicating his intentions to join forces with the Kadapa MP.
Vamsi got down from his car and came to Jagan. Both of them exchanged pleasantries and hugged each other. While Jagan openly asked Vamsi when he was joining his party, the latter remained silent but smiled in a suggestive manner. And former MLA Vangaveeti Radha who joined the Jagan party on Friday watched both of them with awe.
While TD sources rubbished off that he will join YSR Congress party, close aides of Vamsi still believe that their leader will retire 'Cycling' very soon. However, there is a new dimension in this so called sensational 'hug' of Jagan and Vamsi according to TD insiders. To dominate his arch rival Devineni Nehru and co, who are giving tough time for him within the party, he took this route, says a source.
Both Vamsi and Radhakrishna are close friends but have sailed in two different parties. Insiders said Vamsi has been waiting for an opportunity to meet Jagan as he is uncomfortable working with Krishna district TDP chief Devineni Umamaheswara Rao.
Meanwhile, Radhakrishna organised a massive rally to mark his entry into the YSR Congress Party. Radhakrishna tried to prove his mettle in the city by mobilizing huge crowds to the public meeting in the city.
