Sai Reddy had played a key role in building up a close relation between YSRC and BJP in the last one year.

He had met Prime Minister Narendra Modi several times and had been in regular touch with the PMO on various issues.

He also led several delegations of the YSRC to the Election Commission, President of India and other top Union ministry officials to represent against the TDP government and was instrumental in getting several IAS and IPS officers in Andhra Pradesh transferred before elections.

Apparently, Jagan thought there will be no better person than Sai Reddy to be in Delhi and sustain the relations between YSRC and BJP.
