Jyothula Nehru disclosed the reasons behind his defection from YSR Congress to TDP. 'Can't live like a Slave in YSR Congress. Hence, I joined Telugu Desam,' he told. Responding on the allegations of Jagan that TDP Government has been luring his party MLAs with crores of rupees, Nehru questioned, 'When Jagan floated YCP, We are working for other Political Party. Did Jagan offered us crores when we joined YSR Congress?'.
The Senior Legislator asked YS Jagan why he remained silent when YSR Congress MP joined TRS and why didn't he accuse KCR of purchasing his party leader. He dared to ask if Jagan is ready for an open debate on assets owned by his family before YSR entered politics and now. Nehru revealed Jagan didn't allow him to sit beside him in Assembly for 3 out of 5 sessions just because of his 'ego' and the fact that Chandrababu Naidu alone would sit in his seat.
On the other hand, Bhuma Nagi Reddy revealed Chandrababu Naidu was reluctant to field the nominee for the fourth Rajya Sabha even though YCP Rebel MLAs assured him victory. He also found fault with Jagan preferring Vijay Sai Reddy over party senior leaders for Rajya Sabha seat.
