Most of the top business houses of India are lobbying for YS Jagan Mohan Reddy as CM of Andhra Pradesh. Every major business house in the country, from the Ambanis, who have gas and pipeline interests in the Krishna-Godavari basin, to the real estate developers, has been lobbying for Jagan as CM of AP as he knew of many commitments made by YSR to industry in AP.
Businessmen are reposing faith in YSR’s son as they saw his father protecting their interests even when faced with strong political opposition.
The lobbyists include Gali Janardhan Reddy of Bellary who owns Obulapuram Mining Company and N Prasad, founder of pharma company Matrix. Many business houses that are into SEZ sector also support YSR’s son as they believe that continuity of YSR’s policies will be ensured.
The Congress high command is still dilly-dallying the issue of a successor to the last YSR and the business houses are intensifying their efforts to get Jagan as CM.
