Film actor and writer Posani Krishna Murali had met YSR Congress chief Jaganmohan Reddy in the padayatra in West Godavari district on Saturday. He walked with Jagan for a few minutes talking to the leader. Though what transpired between the two is not known yet, it is said that Krishna Murali had agreed to work for the party in the next elections.
Posani is not happy with some top producers and directors supporting the Telugu Desam Party in the fight against BJP for special category status. He went on record criticising persons like K Raghavendra Rao, Aswini Dutt and others for backing TDP, particularly Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu. He blamed Chandrababu Naidu in his recent TV debates for changing stand on the special category status demand frequently in the last four years.
Now his meeting with Jaganmohan Reddy and his silence joining the party raises eyebrows on his future role in the party. It is believed that he would be representing the party in the TV shows and was asked to mobilise support from the film industry. It is said that Posani had given a list of the film personalities who are interested to support the YSR Congress during the next round of elections.
The sources said that Jaganmohan Reddy had asked Posani to build up the team in the industry who would be used for the party campaign adding glamour which only the TDP does at the time of election every time.
