Congress suspends Ambati Rambabu
Close aide of Kadapa MP YS Jaganmohan Reddy, APCC general secretary and former MLA, Ambati Rambabu, has been suspended from the Congress for publicly accusing the Chief Minister, Mr K. Rosaiah, of trying to torpedo the Odarpu yatra taken out by the Kadapa MP. Rambabu had also castigated Mr Rosaiah for celebrating his birthday before the first death anniversary of the former Chief Minister, Dr Y.S. Rajasekhar Reddy.
The AICC’s move caught the state Congress by surprise, since there was the feeling that action would be delayed to prevent any ill-feeling in the Kapu community to which the former MLA belongs.
