VPR quits YSRCP

Must read

In a setback to the ruling YSRCP, another Member of Parliament (Rajya Sabha) has quit the party. Vemireddy Prabhakar Reddy (VPR) has sent his resignation letter to Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy.
VPR, a businessman, was elected as an MP in 2018 and has completed his six-year term. He was to contest from the Nellore Lok Sabha seat, but was reportedly unhappy that the party selected candidates for Assembly seats within his parliament constituency without consulting him.
VPR met TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu and is likely to contest as a TDP candidate from the Nellore parliament seat. TDP leaders from Nellore gathered at his residence to extend support.
Just four days ago, the mining baron donated a 23.6-foot tall golden chariot worth Rs 11 crore to the Srisailam temple.
His wife Prashanti Reddy holds a post with the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam and is likely to resign, too.
