Nellore: Making a strong political statement after a long gap, Congress MP Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy on Sunday alleged that attempts were being made to marginalise him and his followers within the Congress party and warned that there would be a "high tidal wave" if he ran out of patience.
"Conspiracies are ruling the roost within our own party.
It may not look good if I say this. Attempts are being made,
as per a scheme, to isolate me and to throw my loyalists and
those who have lots of love for the late Y S Rajasekhara
Reddy, out of the party," he said addressing a public meeting
here on the conclusion of his `Odarpu yatra` here.

"Even if my loyalists remain in the party, they are being
shown the hell. Is it fair? When I run out of patience, the
hearts of all those people who love Rajasekhara Reddy would
unite. When that happens, there will be a high tidal wave and
these people will be washed away in that," he said.

Jagan`s outburst came in the wake of the disciplinary
action against a number of his supporters by the state
Congress leadership for their critical remarks against the
party leadership.

The party leadership in the state has suspended a few
and issued show cause notices to several other supporters of
the Kadapa MP for "acting against party interests".

Among those at the receiving end were Ambati Rambabu, Gattu
Ramachandra Rao, Y Gopal Reddy, Ch Bhaskar Reddy, K Sridhar
Reddy among others.
