Jagan Distancing From Close Confidants?

It looks like YSR Congress party president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy is distancing himself from once-his-close confidants who had played a crucial role in the party in its initial days.

According to latest reports, former MLA from Kakinada and YSRC in-charge of Kakinada city Dwarampudi Chandrasekhar Reddy is planning to call it quits to the party politics, as he felt he was being sidelined in the party.

A hard core loyalist of late chief minister Y S Rajasekhar Reddy, Dwarampudi won the 2009 assembly elections with a huge margin of over 25,000 votes.

It was Dwarampudi who played a major role in bringing Jagan into active politics at the behest of YSR.

After YSR’s death, Dwarampudi became a close friend of Jagan and was instrumental in strengthening the party in Kakinada. Though he lost the seat in 2014 elections, he continued to remain a pillar for the party in Kakinada.

However, Jagan started sidelining Dwarampudi by appointing Mutta Sasidhar, son of former minister Mutta Gopalakrishna, as party coordinator in Kakinada.

In the recent Kakinada municipal corporation elections, Jagan preferred the candidates selected by Sasidhar in many divisions, rather than Dwarampudi.

However, almost all of them lost the elections, while eight out of 10 YSRC candidates who won the municipal elections were from Dwarampudi camp and the remaining two from the camp of former PCC chief Botsa Satyanarayana.

Apparently, Dwarampudi has not been taking kindly the domination of Botsa and Vijaya Sai Reddy in the YSRC activities in Kakinada.

As if rubbing salt on the wounds of Dwarampudi, the party appointed his rival Kampara Ramesh was the YSRC city unit president. As a result, Dwarampudi conveyed to the party leadership that he would withdraw from the party activities.

It is not just Dwarampudi, several other loyalists are also disgruntled with the leadership.

More recently, another senior leader Buchepalli Sivaprasad Reddy from Prakasam district also announced that he would stay away from party activities, but there was no response from Jagan. Already, he had lost seniors and loyalists like Sabbam Hari and Konathala Ramakrishna.

It is better Jagan wakes up at least now and realises the importance of seniors who were loyal to his father and are ready to help him in the next elections provided they are given the due respect and recognitions.
