New Delhi/Hyderabad: In what could be seen as persisting reluctance of Jagan Reddy to come to terms with Congress high commands, his closest aide Ambatti Rambabu has revealed that Jagan will not meet Sonia as was earlier suggested by his Uncle Vivekananda Reddy.
Rambabu also said that Jagan had nothing to regret about as his opinions are separate from that of Sakshi TV.

It’s not for the first time that Rambabu has come forward to support Jagan. He has been earlier known for making controversial comments against previous CM Rosaiah in connection with Jagan’s Odarpu Yatra. He had then criticized the CM for disturbing Jagan Yatra and was suspended from Congress for the same.

On the other hand, the newly sworn Andhra CM Kiran Reddy too seems to be speaking in the same voice when he said that it was not for him but for the party to decide on Jagan Reddy.

‘Jagan is the son of YSR. He is an MP. He will be treated like one’, CM Kiran Reddy said to reporters here.

It should be noted that earlier during the day, Y S Vivekananda Reddy, Uncle of Jagan Reddy had showed some signs of reconciliation when he told the reporters that Jagan will meet party president Sonia Gandhi and express regret over his television channel`s attacks on Sonia, Rahul and the party.

He had also said that he would accompany his nephew when he meets Gandhi.

"I don`t know what prompted the channel to telecast such a programme which had hurt the feelings of all Congressmen. It must have hurt the feelings of Jagan himself," said Vivekananda.

The MLC said the "phenomenal rise" of Jagan in the party after the death of his late father YSR has led to the rise of his enemies in the party, who "have been planting" stories to the High Command.

"There have been many designs against Jagan by some party leaders, especially after the Odarpu yatra, which drew thousands of people," he had said.
