AMARAVATI: Andhra Pradesh State Government Advisor Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy on Monday said that YSRCP President and Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy would decide on the issue of extending support to Bharat Rashtra Samiti (BRS), if requested by KCR.

Addressing a press conference at the YSRCP central office in Tadepalli, the senior leader of the party smartly sidestepped the issue by evading a direct reply. When asked what would be the YSRCP response if their support is sought for the BRS, he said that, in the event of any such request coming from KCR, YS Jagan would discuss it in the party and take an informed decision on it. In a cryptic response, he said that they had their own opinion on the BRS.

He also refused to be drawn into the reports that the BRS was gearing up to fight elections in Andhra Pradesh too. "Any political party can field its candidates from anywhere," he said while dismissing speculations that the YSRCP was inclined to take an electoral plunge in other states. "YSRCP has no intention whatsoever to fight elections in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. YS Jagan has no other thoughts except those focused on the development and welfare of Andhra Pradesh," he clarified.

Sajjala also asked the media not to politicise his recent comments on bifurcation and reunification. "YSRCP was the only political party that stood for a 'Samaikhya Andhra Pradesh' (unified Andhra Pradesh). The hearing on bifurcation is still going on, even after eight years. My comments in this regard need not be politicised," he observed.
