Member of Parliament from Kadapa YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has resigned from the Congress Party. Jagan along with his mother YS Vijayamma has submitted their resignations today. This is the first step fired by Jagan Mohan Reddy who is on his way to launch his own party. Jagan Mohan Reddy resigned as the Member of Parliament, while Vijayamma resigned as Congress MLA from Pulivendula Assembly seat. He faxed his resignation letter to the Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar which has been accepted by the Speaker. Unofficial reports say that Jagan has the backing of at least 5 MPs.
Vivekananda Reddy said every Congressman was hurt with the attacks on Sonia Gandhi in a one-hour programme and sought to suggest that Jagan may not have been aware of this.
Politicals analysts felt, that for the 38-year-old son of former Chief Minister Y S R Reddy, who has been aspiring to become the CM, the increasing isolation may push him into breaking away from Congress and forming a new party.
Now that Kiran Reddy has taken over as the New Chief Minister and Jagan's dreams of becoming the chief minister cut short, he has decided to resign from the party and Lok Sabha.
