Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy ‘s sister YS Sharmila Reddy is going to launch new political party on July 8, 2021. Here it is to be noted that party will officially float a in Telangana on the birth anniversary of her late father and former Andhra Pradesh chief minister, YS Rajasekhara Reddy. For someone who has largely remained behind the towering shadows of YSR, and her brother, Jagan Mohan Reddy, 47-year-old Sharmila’s political ambitions have stunned many.
Here it is needed to share that both the Bharatiya Janata Party and Congress claim Sharmila is being used by Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) leader and chief minister K Chandrashekar Rao to split the anti-incumbency votes ahead of the 2023 assembly elections in the state. Among this another talk is that they specifically roped in to cut into the Reddy community and Christian vote bank. While the TRS is the principal political force in Telangana, the Congress has lost ground and the BJP is looking to find a political foothold in what it perceives as the largely empty opposition space.
However, here it is to be noted that Andhra Pradesh chief minister Jagan Mohan Reddy has distanced himself from his sister’s political plans. However, Sharmila’s move has been backed by her mother, YS Vijayalakshmi, who said she was happy her daughter had chosen to serve the people of Telangana. The daughter had the same guts as her father, Vijayalakshmi added. Sharmila’s evangelist husband, Bro Anil Kumar, has also come out in her support. “Wishing my wife the very best in this new chapter of life. Go make the change! Fulfill the aspirations of the people of Telangana!!” he tweeted on April 9 along with a photograph of the couple.
