Even though Congress high command is believed to have given three options to YS Jaganmohan Reddy in lieu of chief ministership of Andhra Pradesh, two ministers from the state have today expressed hope that the party high command would accept their request.
“We have requested them to make Jagan as chief minister. We are hopeful that our wish would be accepted,” Panchayat Raj Minister B Satyanarayana told reporters in Hyderabad.
Similarly, D Manikya Vara Prasad, Secondary Education Minister, said that there is no option other than Jaganmohan for the chief minister’s post.
“There is no other option. Jagan is a popular leader today,” he said.
It may be mentioned that following YSR’s unfortunate demise, there has been demand from state congress party and all the cabinet ministers for making Jaganmohan as the chief minister.
In the wake of media reports that they were not cooperating with the interim Chief Minister K Rosaiah, the ministers asserted that they have full respect for him.
