CM Jagan Sister YS Sharmila To Launch A New Regional Party
The stage is set for the launch of a new regional party in Telangana soon by YS Sharmila, YSR Congress party president, and AP CM Jagan Mohan Reddy's sister.
A senior leader of the YSRC confirmed that Sharmila had called a meeting with about 30-35 close confidants at her residence on Tuesday to discuss her plans.
A poster with a big picture of Sharmila, along with her father, late YS Rajasekhar Reddy (former CM of combined AP), calling upon the followers of YSR to come to Lotus Pond at 10 am on Tuesday, has been in circulation on social media since Monday morning.
The poster has a slogan: "YSR Samkshemam Sharmilamma Thone Sadhyam" and a small map of Telangana at the right-hand corner with images of YSR, Jagan, Sharmila, and her mother, Vijayalakshmi.
For the last few days, there have been speculations on social media groups about Sharmila's plans to launch a new political outfit exclusively in Telangana, independent of her brother Jagan's party.
However, there has been neither denial nor confirmation from Sharmila's camp.
Interestingly, Telangana CM KCR, at the state executive committee of his TRS, made an interesting comment.
Without naming Sharmila, KCR said there was talk of a new regional party being floated in the state, but it was not so easy to run a political party in the present circumstances.
KCR said even if a new regional party was launched, it would not survive for long and would wind up within no time.
