The acceptance of Silpa Chakrapani Reddy’s resignation to the Legislative Council has come as a shot in the arm for YSR Congress. Chakrapani Reddy, who was elected as TDP candidate for the Kunool local body constituency a few months ago, had submitted his resignation on August 3, when he joined the YSR Congress.
Jagan sets a mark by making Silpa Chakrapani Reddy to quit the MLC post before joining the YSR Congress. While welcoming Silpa’s decision, he dared TDP chief to make the 20 MLAs also quit and seek fresh mandate, sending jitters among the turncoat MLAs in the two Telugu states.
The politics in Nandyal heated up with the decision of Chakrapani Reddy, brother of YSRCP candidate Silpa Mohan Reddy to quit ruling Telugu Desam Party and joining YSRCP.
