The YSR Congress Party's leadership appears to have embarked upon a damage control exercise in East Godavari district. Party President Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy held deliberations with senior leaders from the district to analyse its prospects in the district. The meeting comes in the light of YSRC district president and deputy leader in the Assembly, Jyothula Nehru, switching over to the ruling Telugu Desam Party a couple of days ago along with several second rung leaders including MPTCs and ZPTCs. Another YSRC MLA P. Subba Rao from the district too quit the party and joined the ruling party recently.
