Jagan cancels Sai Reddy's appointment!

In a surprising development, YSR Congress party president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister on Thursday cancelled the appointment of party general secretary and Rajya Sabha member V Vijay Sai Reddy as the Andhra Pradesh government’s special representative in New Delhi.

An order to this effect was issued by chief secretary L V Subrahmanyam on Thursday evening, following a direction from the chief minister.

Earlier, the chief secretary issued a GO (No. 68) on June 22, appointing Sai Reddy as the special representative of the AP government in New Delhi. He was given the cabinet rank with all perks and facilities.

However, the parliament secretariat reportedly conveyed to the state government that Sai Reddy cannot be given any official posting of profit, as he is holding the position of an MP. Moreover, he is also the parliamentary party leader of YSRC.

If Sai Reddy takes up the appointment as special representative of the government with cabinet rank, he will be liable for disqualification from Rajya Sabha. So, he was compelled to give up the official post.

Sources said Jagan is now looking for another senior leader of the party for the appointment as government’s special representative in New Delhi.
