As Kadapa MP YS Jaganmohan Reddy basks in the limelight with his carping of the leadership, Rosaiah asserts a “big tree” like the Congress cannot be shaken by any individual. “Congress is an ocean. No one is bigger than the party. In the past leaders like Chenna Reddy and Karunakaran have gone out and rejoined the party. But the party has never weakened,” Rosaiah told TOI in an informal chat. He says there are bound to be some ‘fights’ in a big family. “But we will sort them out,” is how he put it.
Rosaiah says the first priority is to ensure party stability and continuation of welfare schemes. “I was given a task by the high command in tragic circumstances and am here to fulfil it,” he says in no uncertain terms.
