In a major development in Krishna district politics, Telugu Desam Party Vijayawada urban unit president Vallabhaneni Vamsi had a surprise meeting with YSR Congress party president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy in Vijayawada, creating ripples in the political circles.
Vamsi got down from his car and came to Jagan. Both of them exchanged pleasantries and hugged each other. While Jagan openly asked Vamsi when he was joining his party, the latter remained silent but smiled in a suggestive manner. And former MLA Vangaveeti Radha who joined the Jagan party on Friday watched both of them with awe.
For quite some time, Telugu Desam Party Vijayawada urban unit president Vallabhaneni Vamsi has been engaged in bitter rivalry with party MLA from Mylavaram and Krishna district unit president Devineni Umamaheshwara Rao. While Vamsi is a close follower of Junior NTR, Deveni has the blessings of Chandrababu Naidu.
And always Vamsi has been complaining that Devineni and his group had been ignoring the NTR family – particularly Nandamuri Harikrishna and Junior NTR. When Harikrishna toured Krishna district last year, Devineni group stayed away from it. And Junior NTR was terribly upset with the development.
Now, it is rumoured that Jr NTR himself has encouraged Vamsi to get closer to Jagan, so that his political career would be secure. In the coming days, who knows even Jr NTR also might come closer to Jagan!
