With strong indications that Kadapa Congress MP Y S Jaganmohan Reddy is nurturing plans to float his own political outfit has forced many erstwhile loyalists of the late CM Y S Rajasekhara Reddy to take a call on where they stand. While some are now distancing themselves from Jagan, others appear to be diluting their support.
This perception is strong among many senior ministers who have now developed a working relationship with Rosaiah. The list includes Botsa Satyanarayana , Kanna Lakshminarayana, Gade Venkata Reddy, Dharmana Prasada Rao, J Geeta Reddy, D Sridhar Babu, Vatti Vasanta Kumar, Galla Aruna Kumari, D Manikya Varaprasad , Ponnala Lakshmaiah, Mukesh Goud, D Raja Narasimha and Pitani Satyanarayana. They were all once in the forefront of the ‘Jagan-for-CM ’ campaign in September 2009.
