Sources reported that BJP leaders have contacted YS Jagan, son of former Chief Minister late YS Rajashekhara Reddy, and extended their offer of tie-up to form a new political block in Andhra Pradesh.
Earlier on Thursday, Dec 2, YS Jagan had announced his plan of launching the new party. He also invited other Congress leaders to join his party.
The Chief spokesman of the Jagan Group, Ambati Rambabu has told the media that YS Jagan will launch his political party soon.
"Jagan will come in front of the media very soon and announce the new party. His new political party will become very strong and replace the Congress party in the state" Rambabu said.
Meanwhile, the rebel Congress ministers, who expressed their dissatisfaction with the new portfolios, have attended the Cabinet meeting on Thursday evening.
But the resigned Tourism Minister Vatti Vasantha Kumar stayed away from the meeting and is planning to join Jagan's camp.
