Magunta family is rooted to YSRCP: Srinivasulu Reddy
YSRCP MP from Ongole Magunta Srinivasulu Reddy on Sunday reaffirmed that he, along with his family, would remain rooted forever to his party.
ONGOLE: YSRCP MP from Ongole Magunta Srinivasulu Reddy on Sunday reaffirmed that he, along with his family, would remain rooted forever to his party. He said that the Magunta family had always been a name synonymous to loyalty in politics and rubbished the recent media reports about their new political ambitions.
Srinivasulu Reddy addressed the media at his office here in the wake of intense speculation that he was once again cozying up to the Telugu Desam Party. He was with the TDP until 2019 before switching his loyalties to the YS Jaganmohan Reddy party.
Reacting to the media reports, Srinivasulu Reddy said that his family had been in active politics in Prakasam district for the last 32 years starting from the time of his elder brother late Magunta Subbarama Reddy.
"Right from the time when my elder brother was first elected to the Lok Sabha from Ongole, the people of the district have always been supportive of our family, largely due to the welfare and social service activities that we have been taking up," he said.
The MP also clarified that he had always been friendly with all the MLAs and leaders in the district and never had any issues with anyone. He dismissed the speculation that he would quit the YSRCP and termed it as a blatant attempt to create a rift between the chief minister and the Magunta family.
"In 2019, I joined the YSRCP obliging a request from YS Jaganmohan Reddy. Magunta family is known for its loyalty. Me, my son and the Magunta family are firmly rooted to the party under YS Jagan's leadership and we will continue to do so," said Srinivasulu Reddy.
