YSRCP suspends rebel MLAs, Kotamreddy joins TDP


The ruling YSR Congress on Friday suspended four of its MLAs for cross voting in the just-concluded MLC elections from the Assembly. The party took action against the four MLAs who had voted for the TDP in the MLC election.

Party general secretary and government advisor Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy told the media persons in Tadepalli that the party had conducted internal enquiry on the cross voting by the MLAs. The party found that the four MLAs, Kotamreddy Sridhar Reddy, Anam Ramanarayana Reddy, Mekapati Chandrasekhar Reddy and Undavalli Sridevi, were found guilty of cross voting, he said.

He alleged that these four MLAs were sold out to the opposition TDP during the MLC election. He said that TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu is known for purchasing MLAs and had done the same in the MLC election.

While Sridevi from Tadikonda in Guntur district had denied to have voted for the TDP, Chandrasekhar Reddy was unavailable for the party after the voting was over. Sridhar Reddy defied the party a couple of months ago and had declared that he would go by his conscience in the MLC elections. Ramanarayana Reddy did not make any statement on his preference to vote for the TDP against the party’s decision.

Meanwhile, Kotamreddy Sridhar Reddy’s brother Giridhar Reddy joined the TDP in the presence of Chandrababu Naidu at the party headquarters in Mangalagiri, soon after the announcement came from the YSR Congress office on his suspension from the party.

Backed by hundreds of supporters, Giridhar Reddy joined the party and said that they would work for the party’s victory in the coming election.

It’s Kotamreddy vs Anam in Nellore Rural


Smug, confident and contented YSRCP MLA from Nellore rural assembly constituency Kotamreddy Sridhar Reddy is finding himself in deep trouble these days. His once-best friend and Anam family member Anam Vijayakumar Reddy is now his bitterest enemy and is seeking to undermine the influence of the MLA.

Two-time Kotamreddy and Anam were best of friends and Kotamreddy walked the extra mile when Anam Vijayakumar Reddy contested the local body MLC election. Despite his best efforts Vijayakumar Reddy lost the election. Soon after the ZP elections came and Anam Vijayakumar Reddy had put up his wife Aruna as the ZPTC candidate without even bothering to consult Kotamreddy. This has led to lot of heartburn and the party leaders made a lot of effort to placate Kotamreddy. Later, she became the ZP Chief.

Since then, both the leaders are at loggerheads. They have been fighting on every conceivable issue. Anam group has filed cases and lodged complaints over the land dealings of Kotamreddy’s closest associates in Narayanapeta, Kothapeta, Kothakoduru and Kodurupadu. The MLA hit back by levelling serious allegations against Anam Vijayakumar.

Meanwhile, there are reports that Anam Vijayakumar Reddy is preparing ground to contest from Nellore rural in 2024. This has pitted him against Kotamreddy. As a result the battle will only get more and more intense in the days to come. Will the YSRCP high command move in address the dispute between the two key leaders of the party?
