Following the resignation of Jagan and his mother Vijayamma, wife of former Chief Minister late YS Rajashekahara Reddy, many MLAs loyal to YSR family have informed their willingness to quit. But Jagan adviced MLAs not to resign.
The dramatic move by Jagan has created trouble to Congress national leadership, whom planned to weaken Jagan's camp by offering key positions to YSR loyals in the new Cabinet under Kiran Kumar Reddy.
After resignation, Jagan assured his suppoerters that he will start the 'Odarpu Yatra' again in Jan 2011. He plans to form the new party called 'YSR Congress' after assessing his support through the second Odarppu Yatra.
Earlier on Monday, Nov 29, YS Jagan sent an open letter to Congress President Sonia Gandhi describing his reasons for the resignation. He accused AICC for the continuous humiliation for last 14 months.
In the letter, Jagan said the he was a victim of dirty politics from his own party and the malicious campaign against him and his family led to his resignation.
"A malicious campaign was beign unleashed against me, my family and lastly my late father and a great leader of masses Dr YS Rajashekhara Reddy. Though I have been observing utmost restraint, concerted efforts were being made to send me out and dim my late father's image and prestige," wrote YS Jagan.
