There is no doubt in saying that JC Diwakar Reddy is one of the most influential in Anantapur district. TDP chief Chandra Babu made full use of JC’s following to extract the best possible results from the Anantapur district, making it easier for TDP to score good marks in Rayalaseema region.
However, JC Diwakar Reddy is a very outspoken person and does not shy away from making hard-hitting comments on anyone. Not long ago, JC stated that people are not satisfied with TDP administration and improper implementation of loan waiver scheme. These comments sparked a few feuds in Anantapur and there were rumors that JC is switch loyalties towards YCP.
The latest news is that Diwakar’s close aide, Kogatam Vijay Bhaskar Reddy has joined YSRCP. The youth Congress chief met YS Jagan at Gopalapuram constituency while the latter was in his Pada Yatra and spoke about the future prospects after joining the party. A few political experts are claiming that JC is sending out signals that even he is ready to join the party if Jagan invites him.
Interestingly, Jagan rejected JC’s proposal of joining the party during 2014 elections and later had to regret his decision. It would be interesting to watch if Jagan will invite JC Diwakar Reddy before 2019 elections.
