Jagan has come out of Congress and joined Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party, meanwhile Janardhana Reddy is planning to launch a new party, sources claimed.
"With the CBI breathing down their necks and the government pressing hard, Jagan and Janardhana have good reason to come together. For their survival, they might start championing a separate Rayalaseema as the mine-rich Bellary is contiguous with Anantapur and Kadapa districts in the region," sources said.
As reported in The Times of India, Jagan and Janardhana would press hard for the inclusion of Bellary district in the new Rayalaseema state along with four districts in AP on the grounds that it is culturally part of the region. Some MLAs in Rayalaseema supports Jagan and Reddy brothers have close links with Jagan's family, an expert claimed.
Sources claimed that Jagan's father, late YSR had showered several sops on Janardhan's company to mine iron ore.
"YSR was magnanimous in allotting 10,760 acres of government land to the OMC at throwaway price for setting up Brahmani Steels," said Veera Sivareddy, Congress leader.
