YSR Congress candidate from Ongole, Balineni Srinivasa Reddy has extended an invitation to the Congress MLAs to join his party claiming their admission would be considered in consultation with party president Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy.

Speaking to reporters here on Friday after established a winning lead over his nearest TDP rival, Mr. Balineni hinted at the possibility of early Assembly elections as the people were vexed with the political uncertainty and were of the view that “earlier it goes is better.”

The results of the by-elections, he said, were a lesson to the Congress and the TDP and it would certainly impact the Government in the coming days. The outcome was on expected lines, he said.
