YSRCP General Secretary and Rajya Sabha MP V Vijayasai Reddy has been reinstated by the AP government as its special representative at Andhra Pradesh. The move comes in just days after the government of Andhra Pradesh canceled its own G.O. which appointed Reddy in the position.
A G.O. passed on June 22nd had Reddy's name as the special representative at AP Bhavan. However, he did not take the position as he was consulting fellow YSRCP leaders regarding the move. YSRCP also withdrew its government order as Reddy drawing salary as the special representative would amount to a conflict of interest as he already was drawing a salary as an MP.
Presently, the terms of the G.O have been altered to ensure that there won't be any conflict of interest arising. Reddy has been reappointed to the position as a 'special guest' and not in a cabinet rank that the previous G.O stated. As a 'special guest' he won't be entitled for any perks that a special representative received. YSRCP feels that this will ensure that there won't be any legal complications regarding the posting in the future.
The post was earlier held by Telugu Desam Party (TDP) nominee K. Rammohan Rao.
