In a jolt to the Congress party in Guntur district, Rayapati Sambasiva Rao announced that he would quit his Lok Sabha seat and the Congress party membership shortly.
Rayapati said that he will take sanyas from politics as in his entire political career; he could not do much service to the people.
Rayapati is miffed with the party high command for inducting his arch rival Kanna Laxminarayana into cabinet and ignoring him and his brother for any posts.
Ambati Rambabu the key person in Jagan camp had secret meeting with Rayapati Sambasiva Rao in Guntur.
Jagan too reportedly spoke to Rayapati over phone. If Rayapati joins hands with Jagan, it will be double blow to the Congress in Guntur district at least.
