Yes, it will all be official now. YS Sharmila, daughter of Late YS Rajasekhar Reddy is all set to take the reigns of the Andhra Pradesh Congress party. The official announcement will come on the 4th of this month. After the state bifurcation, the Congress party got washed away in the subsequent elections. Since then, the party has been struggling to survive and the high command has decided to field YS Sharmila to bring back the conventional vote share for the Congress party. The High Command also believes that Sharmila could bring back the party’s old leaders who joined YSRCP.
It will be a cornering move for the ruling party though. It will be interesting to see how Sharmila’s brother, YSRCP Chief and AP Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy would deal with this scenario. He has to fight it out with the BJP-Jana Sena alliance and also his family member.
Sharmila, however, will be busy these two months with the wedding of his son YS Raja Reddy.
