YS Sharmila Joins Congress, Merges YSR Telangana Party

YS Sharmila, the founder of YSR Telangana Party and daughter of former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy, has formally joined the Congress party. This significant move was made official in a ceremony held in New Delhi, attended by Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge and former party chief Rahul Gandhi.

During the announcement at the AICC headquarters, Sharmila expressed her enthusiasm about merging her party with the Congress. She emphasized her commitment to take on any responsibilities given to her within the Congress framework. Additionally, Sharmila highlighted her father’s aspiration to see Rahul Gandhi become the Prime Minister of India, indicating her alignment with this vision.

The merger between YSR Telangana Party and Congress is perceived as a strategic maneuver, aiming to bolster the Congress party’s influence in Telangana. Sharmila’s prior support for the Congress party during the recent Telangana assembly elections underscores her strategic alignment with Congress’s objectives. She had previously voiced concerns over the tenure of KCR, the current Chief Minister of Telangana, citing unfulfilled promises as a reason for not wanting him to retain power.

It’s worth noting that YSR Telangana Party, an unrecognized regional entity based in Andhra Pradesh, lacked elected representatives in both the state and national legislative bodies. Sharmila’s decision to merge her party with Congress signals a potential shift in the political dynamics of Telangana, with implications for upcoming state elections.
