The largely unnoticed thing about the Congress unit of Andhra Pradesh (Slow Road to Perdition, Apr 16) is that Sonia Gandhi is losing control. No one in the unit listens to her anymore.

The CBI is out to damage my reputation, alleges Jaganmohan Reddy in his interview. It’s indeed sad to see a corrupt politician like him gain ascendancy.
Meher Kumar Mutnuri, Hyderabad
Jaganmohan Reddy’s bravado is pathetic, laughable and shameful. He’s the embodiment of corruption in AP politics. His late father’s welfare schemes have earned him some default sympathy and goodwill, and his being Christian gets him some community support. He is indeed gaining in influence, but it will be a sad day indeed if he comes to power.
G. Niranjan Rao, Hyderabad
Jaganmohan could well win the next elections, become CM—and yes, even join the UPA by declaring Sonia Amma the living god of India.
Liquor mafia, Money laundering, Smuggling, EMAAR, land deals characterise the congress rule in Andhra Pradesh. Media got sold out to a person named Accused No 1 by the CBI, is defending him.
Outlook should not support/write in support of a A-1 in the CBI, Chargesheet.
Outlook, read the chargesheet before you write something.
The largeky unnoticed point in AP is Sonia losing control of her party. Nobody in AP Cpngress listens to her anymore. Telengana region is all gone for Congress. And even in AP proper, Congressmen do not follow the commands from the High.
Sonia can afford indiscipline in one state but if this trends continues to other states, the dynasty will be in big trouble.
Congress is a status quo party. There's some peculiar indecisiveness in Congress party on all the issues. At the end, it is the congress that loses the most due to its reluctance to act. It happened in Babri Masjid, in corruption cases, and it is the same that is happening in Telangana. Congress tally will be reduced if Telangana is created but if Congress continues to show its impotency, then the party will be wiped out in Andhra. The sad part for Congress is that Viagra doesn't make a female a male.
Congress will become irrelevant in the next election for sure
Y. Samuel Reddy's (YSR) legacy- Christian evangelists setting camp in Tirumala hills(near Tirupathi temple) and openly distributing christian literature to devotees- All under goverment protection and overseen by YSRs son in law tele evangelist Anil Kumar. And of course he had a very timely death. Enough said.
LBJ's advice would have been to keep the young man inside the tent, gazing outwards...
