Daggubati Venkateswara Rao, senior legislator and husband of Union minister of state for human resource development Daggubati Purandeswari, is the latest MLA to join the camp of the detractors of chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy.

Panchayat raj minister K Jana Reddy and health minister DL Ravindra Reddy, who have been holding hectic parleys with “like-minded’’ ministers and senior leaders in the Congress for the past two days,  continued their meetings on Friday also. The two ministers went to the chambers of irrigation minister P.Sudarshan Reddy on the Assembly premises and held confabulations with him. Former ministers JC Diwakar Reddy and Gade Venkat Reddy joined them soon.

The group held discussions for over half an hour over the ongoing developments in Delhi and the acute power crisis in the state. As the meeting was going on, Daggubati Venkateswara Rao surfaced there and joined his peers. He also participated in the discussions for some time over the current political situation and party affairs in the state. Daggubati’s presence at the meeting triggered speculations in the media circles.

Jana Reddy, who is believed to be nursing ambitions to become chief minister, has been busy holding meetings with deputy chief minister Damodara Rajanarasimaha, PCC chief Botcha Satyanarayana and health minister DL Ravindra Reddy, all known detractors of the chief minister.
