RK returns to YSRCP

Must read

Mangalagiri MLA Alla Ramakrishna Reddy, who resigned from the Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) on December 11 last year, made a significant return to the party today in the presence of Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. Ramakrishna Reddy, accompanied by YSRCP MP Alla Ayodhya Rami Reddy, met the CM at his camp office.
Following his meeting with the CM, Ramakrishna Reddy addressed the media, reminiscing about the political landscape of 2009 when various parties collaborated to oppose YS Rajasekhar Reddy. He emphasised a similar coalition emerging against Jagan now and declared his return to YSRCP to thwart such endeavours.
Ramakrishna Reddy underlined his commitment to uplift the economically and politically marginalised communities, including SCs, STs, BCs, and minorities. He voiced his support for Jagan’s initiatives aimed at advancing their interests.
Hinting at a strategic shift, Ramakrishna Reddy suggested that the Mangalagiri seat might be allocated to a BC candidate this time. Reflecting on the 2019 elections where Lokesh faced defeat by an OC candidate in Mangalagiri, he speculated Lokesh’s vulnerability against a BC contender in the upcoming polls.
Pledging his allegiance to CM Jagan and the party, Ramakrishna Reddy assured full-fledged support for any YSRCP candidate contesting from Mangalagiri, vowing to tirelessly work for their triumph. He expressed determination to secure YSRCP’s dominance in Mangalagiri for the third consecutive term.
Ramakrishna Reddy conveyed his readiness to serve wherever the party deems fit, expressing his wish for Jagan’s prolonged tenure as Chief Minister and YSRCP’s sweeping victory in the forthcoming elections.
Reports suggest that YSRCP has offered Ramakrishna Reddy significant responsibilities in the constituency for the upcoming Assembly elections, prompting his sudden reintegration into the party.
It was on December 11, 2023, that Ramakrishna Reddy announced his resignation from YSRCP and the Assembly, citing “personal reasons.” Although he submitted his resignation to the Speaker’s office, it was not accepted.
Allegedly, Ramakrishna Reddy’s discontent stemmed from the appointment of Ganji Chiranjeevi as the constituency in-charge for Mangalagiri by the YSRCP leadership. Furthermore, he was reportedly aggrieved by certain factions within the party opposing his ticket allocation for the impending elections.

Ramakrishna Reddy clinched victory over Telugu Desam Party (TDP) general secretary Nara Lokesh in the 2019 elections from Mangalagiri, encompassing the Amaravati capital region. This marked his second consecutive win from the constituency after his triumph in 2014, both under the YSRCP banner. Notably, he actively pursued legal action against the then TDP government concerning the Amaravati land issue.
