YSR`s successor: Supporters push for son
Hyderabad: With the sudden death of Y S
Rajasekhara Reddy, his supporters have initiated a campaign
for making his son Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy the new Chief
Minister amidst a hunt for the successor.
While Jagan Mohan`s name was being assiduously pushed,
there are some other names including those of Union Minister S
Jaipal Reddy and APCC president B Srinivas which have also
cropped up as contenders in the race.
Senior most leader K Rosaiah was today sworn-in as Chief
Minister, which Union Law Minister and AICC in-charge for the
state Veerappa Moily said was only an "interim arrangement".
Shortly after he was sworn-in, Rosaiah met ministers of
the Reddy Cabinet informally. Party sources said they all
pressed for making Jagan Mohan Reddy, a first time member of
the Lok Sabha, the Chief Minister.
Nearly 10 ministers openly campaigned for Jagan Mohan
Reddy to be made the Chief Minister, saying his successor
should be "a person who thinks on the lines of YSR and cares
for the poor."
A signature campaign is also said to have been initiated
by the ruling party`s Chief Whip in the Assembly B Vikramarka
backing their demand.
