Family Values YSR Congress president Jaganmohan Reddy often says that the voters of And­hra Pradesh are like his family and that he’ll go to any lengths to protect their interests. Strangely, though, when it comes to his own family members, Jagan’s apparently having second thoughts. Sis­ter Sharmila, who had und­er­­taken a marathon paday­a­tra when Jagan was in jail, is nowhere to be seen these days. Her sudden absence has not gone unnoticed and whispers abound in party circles about friction in the family. Apparently, Sharmila wants to contest from Jag­an’s Kadapa LS seat which hasn’t gone down well with the brother. Jagan is also not comfortable about sharing the limelight with his sister and creating a parallel power centre. “This is what Jagan’s rajneeti is all about. Be it family or outsiders, they are in his good books only as long as they don’t try to overshadow him,” says a YSR Congress worker.

Pass The Shuttle Here YSR Congress boss Jaganmohan Reddy, cooling his heels in jail in an illegal assets case, still looks fit and lean thanks to his diet and exercise. But now we hear he’s unwell. Nothing serious, the 40-year-old MP just sprained his ankle playing badminton. Meanwhile, the Chanchalguda jail is a hothouse of interesting inmates and visitors. Like actor Nagarjuna who visits often to meet industrialist Nimmagadda Prasad, another accused in the Jagan case. Although Nagarjuna, 53, has hotly denied rumours that he is joining Jagan’s party, there’s still a buzz that he might contest from the Vijayawada LS seat. Politics is not his cup of tea, says the actor, who still has a huge fan base among teens. Perhaps he would prefer to play badminton with Jagan instead.
