HYDERABAD: The Congress high command was the target of angry reactions from supporters of Kadapa MP Y. S. Jaganmohan Reddy after he resigned from Parliament and from the primary membership of the ruling party on Monday.

But the protests were largely confined to Kadapa, Anantapur and Prakasam districts while the resignation of Mr. Jagan had little impact in Srikakulam, East Godavari, Guntur, Kurnool, Medak and Nizamabad districts.

Mr. Jagan's supporters in Kadapa and Anantapur districts went on a rampage attacking party offices, ransacking furniture and burning effigies of Sonia Gandhi. In Kadapa, Mr. Jagan's supporters changed the name of the DCC office from ‘Indira Bhavan' to ‘YSR Bhavan'.

All office-bearers of the Kadapa DCC led by president K. Suresh Babu tendered their resignations while several party functionaries in Prakasam, Kadapa, Anantapur districts also announced their decision to part ways with the Congress.

Section 144

In Anantapur, angry party workers pelted stones at the Congress Bhavan. Police soon after kept a vigil at the DCC party office and took several youth into custody for indulging in vandalism and imposed Section 144 in the city.

Police foiled an attempt by supporters of former Minister Balineni Srinivasa Reddy to rename Prakasam DCC office in Ongole as YSR Party Office.

Mr.Jagan's supporters took out a rally in Khammam and burnt the portraits and cut-outs of Ms. Sonia Gandhi, Union Minister S.Jaipal Reddy and Rajya Sabha member V.Hanumantha Rao.

In Srikakulam, loyalists of former Minister Dharmana Prasada Rao did not react to the development. Kakinada City MLA Dwarampudi Chandrasekhar Reddy, a staunch loyalist of Mr.Jagan in East Godavari declined to offer an immediate comment. on Jagan's resignation.
