New Delhi: Against the backdrop of party
high command`s disapproval of his `yatra` in Andhra Pradesh,
Congress MP Y S Jaganmohan Reddy, son of late Chief Minister Y
S R Reddy, met Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Tuesday.
Jaganmohan met Gandhi along with his mother Vijaylaxmi
and sister Sharmila for around half an hour but evaded the
media.
The first leg of Jaganmohan`s yatra, to visit the
families of those who allegedly died of shock or committed
suicide after YSR`s death, had sparked off violence in
Telangana region and the the Congress leadership asked the
party MP to desist from continuing it.

The Kadapa MP had then postponed his yatra and issued a
statement saying he was hopeful of convincing Congress
president Sonia Gandhi and will seek an audience with her.

As bye-elections to 10 Assembly constituencies in the
state is scheduled for July 27, it is understood that the
issue could have cropped up in the meeting as well.
