Viveka-Jagan talks fail

Special Correspondent



different path: Kadapa MLC Y.S. Vivekananda Reddy on his way to Pulivendula on Tuesday.

KADAPA: All efforts of party leaders to bridge the gap between former Kadapa MP Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy and his uncle Y.S. Vivekananda Reddy, MLC, failed to fructify after which the latter announced his decision to go ahead with his plans to join the State Cabinet in Kadapa on Tuesday.

Union Minister of State for Steel A. Sai Prathap and Jagan's father-in-law E.C. Gangi Reddy held discussions with Mr. Vivekananda Reddy to drop his plans to accept a Ministerial berth, but the MLC refused to reconsider his decision. His brief meeting with Jagan at Idupulapaya later lasted just three minutes. Mr. Jagan did not offer his comments, but his followers accused the MLC of bringing about a split in YSR family.

The MLC declared at a press conference later in Kadapa that he would continue in Congress till his last breath just like his elder brother, YSR.

Mr. Reddy refuted charges that he was offered a Cabinet berth as part of a conspiracy to split the YSR family. He made it clear that he went to Delhi voluntarily and urged Ms. Gandhi to give him a Cabinet berth.

Recalling his affection for YSR, Mr. Vivekananda Reddy said he was close to YSR, but had no such intimacy with Jagan, probably due to the age difference.

He asserted that he never tried to get closer to the Congress high command until after the demise of YSR. Every political leader aspires to grow politically and he too had such aspirations and hence he was keen on joining the State Cabinet. His decision was backed by his own family and his followers, he added. He garlanded the statues of YSR and Mahatama Gandhi in Kadapa and offered prayers at YSR samadhi at Idupulapaya.
