Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy was elected the lifetime president of Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress (YSRC) on Saturday. This decision came on the concluding day of the YSRC’s two-day plenary.
Earlier in the day, Party’s Parliamentary Party Leader Vijayasai Reddy said that Jagan Mohan Reddy would remain the party president for a lifetime.
“Support for YS Sharmila is required in Telangana at this time… our present party president YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, will be made lifetime president of YSRCP. In this plenary, a proposal was mooted,” Reddy said.
On Friday, YS Vijayamma, mother of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, said that she is considering resigning from her honorary post of president of YSRCP as, at present, she needs to help her daughter YS Sharmila in Telangana.
“When he (YS Jagan Mohan Reddy) was in trouble, I was with him; now he is happy here. My daughter (YS Sharmila) is fighting alone; if I don’t support her, it will be injustice…I am telling you all about this, and I request all to forgive me,” Vijayamma added.
Notably, in 2011, after quitting the Congress party, Jagan established the YSRC. Furthermore, in 2023, assembly polls will be held in Telangana.
