When YS Jagan Mohan Reddy gives a word, hell or high fire, he would do everything to fulfil it.He has proved it once again. He had given a word to three senior leaders that they would be made MLCs. Accordingly, he has decided to make former minister Mopidevi Venkataramana, Mohammad Iqbal and Challa Ramakrishna Reddy as MLCs. Of these, Mopidevi lost the recent assembly elections.
After his defeat, Jagan assured that since he was needed in the government, he would be made an MLC and continued as a minister. Similarly, Mohammed Iqbal lost to Nandamuri Balakrishna in Hindupur. He is former IG in Rayalaseema. So, he would also be given an MLC seat. Similarly, former MLA Challa Ramakrishna Reddy has helped in the victory of the YSRCP candidate in Banagalapalle. He had worked for the victory of Katasani Rambhupal Redy He would also be made an MLC.
Challa Ramakrishna Reddy is originally a Congressman. In 2014, he joined the TDP. But, the TDP has only used him and did not honour any commitment given to him. Upset with this, he joined the YSRCP in March 2019, barely a couple of months before the elections. He has now been honoured for his contribution to the party.
