Hyderabad: Making it clear that he would remain in the Congress party till his last breath, the former minister, Mr Gade Venkat Reddy, has said that the Congress party’s position has improved much with the YSR Congress Party Chief, Mr Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy’s statement on his willingness to join hands with the BJP.
Speaking to the media at the CLP office on Friday, Mr Gade said that an alliance between Mr Jagan and the BJP has not yet materialized and it could bring problems to Mr Jagan if it was crystallized. He said that there were two-lakh voters in Kadapa Lok Sabha constituency and Mr Jagan’s argument would bring problems to himself. Finding fault with Mr Jagan’s statement that the Kadapa contest was between the AICC president, Ms Sonia Gandhi and late Dr YSR, he said that it was not proper to Mr Jagan to talk like that.
Making it clear that there will be no political crisis after the Kadapa by-elections in the State, he said that late YSR had assured the Muslims of four per cent reservation and it was not possible to allot 10 per cent reservation to Muslims. (NSS)
