Jagan aide fails to keep quit promise, goes to US

VISAKHAPATNAM: Is Anakapally Congress Lok Sabha member and Jaganmohan Reddy’s close aide Sabbam Hari in two minds on tendering his resignation from his membership of parliament? His followers claimed that he had not decided yet. But the MP has flown to the United States citing personal reasons.Sources said the Obulapuram Mining Company boss Gali Janardhana Reddy’s arrest and mounting pressure from his followers were forcing the Anakapally MP to have a rethink on his resignation. Hari had announced earlier that the recent monsoon session of Parliament would be his last and that he would put in his papers on September 7.

Not keeping his word, he left for the US on Wednesday afternoon along with his ailing wife for medical treatment. Close aides told TOI that he would take a decision only after he returns. Some district Congress leaders said that Hari could wait till the LS speaker accepts Nellore MP Mekapati Rajamohan Reddy’s resignation.

Mekapati, another Jaganmohan loyalist, quit some time back in protest against inclusion of YSR’s name in the Central Bureau of Investigation’s First Information Report in the disproportionate assets case against Jagan.

Sources said Hari received his visa two months back. He is likely to return from the US on September 19. A senior leader closely associated with Hari said that the latter would contest the by-elections only under YSR Congress Party banner.

He refuted the reports that former minister and Jagan loyalist Konathala Ramakrishna would be the YSR Congress Party candidate from Anankapally Lok Sabha seat. “Hari would get over two lakh majority in the by-elections. He has already conducted a survey in the constituency to check his prospects,” sources close to Hari camp said.
