However, the people who will truly mourn the Chief Minister's death will not just be limited to farmers, party members and workers, as the ex-CEO of Satyam Computers, Mr Ramalinga Raju too may have to join the mourning.
When the Satyam Computers fraud came out in the open, it was a popularly debated fact if YSR was shielding the architect behind the epic Rs 7,800 crore scam.
During this period, YSR faced criticism for supporting and protecting Ramalinga Raju. While his request for the CBI probe into to scam was seen as an effort to protect Ramalinga Raju, his government constantly became the victim of scathing attacks of leaders and the public.
So, now the question is will the demise of YS Rajashekhara Reddy have an impact on Ramalinga Raju and his accomplices, and how?
