Congress legislator from Bobbili in Vizianagaram District RSVK Ranga Rao has resigned from the primary membership of the party and also as a member of the Assembly, here today. Earlier, the Congress Disciplinary Committee reportedly issued a showcause notice to him after he met YSR Congress Party Chief Y S Jaganmohan Reddy at his ‘Lotus Pond’ residence in the city on May 25 but it was yet to be received by the MLA. Disciplinary Committee Chairman Kanteti Satyanarayana Raju also issued a show-cause notice to Eluru MLA Alla Kali Krishna Srinivas (Nani), for getting close to the YSR Congress Party, on May 28.
Since people in his constituency asked him to quit the Congress and join the YSRCP, Mr.Rao said that he was joining the YSR Congress Party along with supporters. Meanwhile, Former Congress Minister and brother of Late Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy, Y S Vivekananda Reddy, who recently resigned from the party, today took blessings at the YSR Ghat in Idupulapayya in Kadapa District before joining the YSR Congress Party.
