Implying that there would be more exodus of leaders from the Congress to the YSRC in Seemandhra in the coming days, Congress MP SPY Reddy has boarded YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s ship.

The two-term MP from Nandyal called on YSRC chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy at latter’s residence here on Friday evening and formally joined the party in the presence of Jagan.

Reddy is the first Congress MP to meet Jagan after the latter was released from jail on bail.

Some other Congress MPs, along with SPY Reddy, will meet Lok Sabha speaker Meira Kumar in Delhi on Saturday to request her to accept their resignations in protest against state’s bifurcation. They are Ananta Venkatarami Reddy, Lagadapati Rajagopal, GV Harsha Kumar, Rayapati Sambasiva Rao and A Sai Pratap. Most of them, such as Venkatarami Reddy, are also likely to join YSRCP as they think that the future for Congress looks bleak in Seemandhra. In fact, this newspaper has already reported Venkatarami Reddy has made up his mind to formally announce his decision to join YSRC.

Rayapati Sambasiva Rao has been saying of late that a new political party will be floated in Seemandhra. Several Congress MLAs and MPs are openly saying that there is no future for their party in Seemandhra now.

More Congress lawmakers including some ministers from Seemandhra are likely to quit the party to join the YSRC. Pinepe Viswaroop has also sent in his resignation.
