Telugu Desam Party former legislator from Guntur East constituency, Ziauddin has switched loyalties as he joined YSRCP in the presence of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy earlier today.
Ziauddin met with Jagan at the latter’s camp office today afternoon and took the YCP oath. The current YCP MLA from Guntur East constituency, Lella Appireddy was present while Ziauddin joined YCP.
Ziauddin previously served as minority commission chairmen and is a two-time MLA. He is the brother of former MP Lal Jaan Basha. Their family had deep connection with TDP.
Citing differences with the TDP high command, Ziauddin left the party in May this year. After much contemplation, Ziauddin joined in YSRCP today.
The chief minister YS Jagan assured all possible support to Ziauddin and said he would be rewarded with a fitting post on the near future.
With Ziauddin’s addition, YSRCP turns a wee bit stronger in Guntur. He enjoys a loyal voter base in the constituency and that could help the Jagan-led party.
