After release, Jagan promptly gets back to business

Barely hours after he returned home following his release from Chanchalguda prison, YSR Congress president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy immediately got into political business today, holding a series of confabulations with his party colleagues.

He also met employees of the state Secretariat from Seemaandhra region, who came to him seeking support for their struggle for a united Andhra Pradesh.

As thousands of supporters and YSRC workers thronged his Lotus Pond residence here, Jagan took a small break from his meetings and greeted them.

Jagan held a meeting with YSRC MP, MLAs and ex-MLAs and discussed political issues.
He also held one-on-one meetings with some legislators to obtain feedback on the ground-level situation in their constituencies, sources said.

"There was a general discussion on the ongoing agitation in coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema for a united state. We discussed our future course of action and how we should carry the movement forward," a senior YSRC leader said.

Jagan reportedly asked the MLAs and other leaders to "fully expose" the Congress and the Telugu Desam Party over the state bifurcation issue.

Secretariat employees, on the other hand, requested Jagan to extend his party's support to their protest programme at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi on Friday in support of united AP.

They even invited him to take part in the programme but he pleaded helplessness in view of the court restrictions, though he assured them that his party representatives would be present.

Jagan discussed the ongoing agitation in Seemaandhra with the government employees, sources said.

In the evening, Jagan met members of the YSRC Central Governing Council and discussed the political developments and the party's strategy in the current scenario.
