As announced earlier, cine actor couple Dr Rajasekhar and Jeevitha joined the YSRCP party in the presence of YSCP Party chief YS Jaganmohan Reddy at the Lotus Pond office here today.
The couple recently won as the Executive Vice President and the General Secretary of Movie Artists Association (MAA) in its recently held elections. In fact, they returned to the YSRCP. The couple had earlier joined Congress in 2008 during YS Jagan’s father Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy regime. After YSR’s death in 2009, they backed Jaganmohan Reddy in the revolt against Congress leadership. They were with him when he floated YSR Congress but later distanced themselves by alleging that Jagan was running the party like a fiefdom.
Today after returning to the party, the couple appealed to the people of Andhra Pradesh to give a chance to Jaganmohan Reddy to serve them and remarked that “today’s Jagan is different from the earlier Jagan”.
