YS Jagan Mohan Reddy
New Delhi , Jan 11: Rebel Congress leader and Former AP Chief Minister YS Rajasekhar Reddy's son YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is at it again. His massive show of strength in Delhi has found a large number of supporters. He was in Delhi on a day-long fast in protest against the “injustice" meted out to Andhra Pradesh by the Krishna River Water Tribunal.

More than protesting for the cause, the occasion posed an excellent opportunity for members within the Congress to know their support for Jagan. He has managed to show-off his political clout with substantial panache. He had recently floated his own party, calling it the YSR Party.

Close to 24 Congress MLAs and MLCs from Andhra Pradesh came out to shower unconditional support to Jagan. This follows fears that Jagan's increasing popularity will be a major deterrent to the ruling Congress govt in AP. The state is already reeling under violent protests following the Telangana agitation that has crippled all activities in the state.

The Congress high command will have to keep a tab on Jagan's increasing popularity before he gathers enough support to pull down the AP govt.
