Senior TDP Leader and former minister Anam Ramnarayana Reddy brought an end to months of speculations by defecting to YSRCP from TDP on Sunday.
Anam attended YSRCP President Jaganmohan Reddy’s Praja Sankalpa Yatra and praised Jagan for his efforts towards bringing Special Staus for Andhra Pradesh. The move of Anam is expected to hit TDP badly in the upcoming elections as Anam enjoys a massive clout in his home district of Nellore.
Over the past few months, speculations have been rife of Anam joining YSRCP over dissatisfaction with AP CM Chandrababu Naidu. Reportedly, Anam was angered with TDP not giving him and his brother Late Anam Vivekananda Reddy the positions they were promised during their move to TDP from Congress back in 2016.
Criticizing Naidu for his lacklustre efforts on the special status movement, Anam said, “The TDP grossly failed in fulfilling the promises made to people. For four years, the TDP sailed with the BJP but it is staging the estrangement drama only because it failed the people in all respects. The BJP, too, cheated the people of AP.”
Recently Ramnarayana Reddy, another senior leader from Nellore joined YSRCP and now with Anam joining the opposition party, the troubles for Naidu seem to be increasing.
