Cong, Jagan Seek to Stop Succession Campaign in AP

Following many Congress leaders from Andhra Pradesh running a campaign for YS Jaganmohan Reddy succeeding his father, AICC general secretary Digvijay Singh was sent to Hyderabad on Sunday to deliver a strict message to Rajya Sabha member Dr KVP Ramachandra Rao – the right hand man of late YSR Reddy, and the perceived man behind the campaign, said media reports.

Also, Jaganmohan Reddy has asked the leaders to stop the signature campaign and leave the matter to congress President Sonia Gandhi.

Reports said that Digvijay Singh met Jaganmohan and other family members of YSR’s family to communicate the displeasure of the Party high command over the campaign being run over succession.

However, Singh was quoted as saying by an English daily that his visit to Hyderabad had nothing to do with politics.

“I met the (Reddy) family to express my condolence. It would have been improper for me to talk about politics with them,” he said.

Singh’s meeting with YSR’s family took place in Hyderabad hours after Sonia received a briefing on the situation from the AICC Andhra Pradesh in-charge Veerappa Moily in New Delhi.

In the meanwhile, Jaganmohan urged Congress leaders running the signature campaign to install him as the next CM to stop such activities.

In a press release in Hyderabad, Jagan said that he would be a duty-bound loyal and disciplined Congress worker like his father. Every Congress worker knows that it is the party’s tradition to leave the decision on leadership to the high command and AICC president Sonia Gandhi.

“Our high command knows and more particularly our beloved leader Sonia Gandhi who respects the public perception and feelings of lakhs of Congress workers. She also knows well what is good for all of us and for our State and people.”

I request you to await the decision of Sonia Gandhi on the issue of leadership and also urge you to abide by the decision,’’ he said.

Jagan further said that the Congress president would take a decision in such a way that late Rajasekhara Reddy’s ideals and mission would not be compromised in any manner.
