HYDERABAD: Presidents of 13 district Youth Congress units on Thursday demanded that the Congress high command appoint Kadapa MP Y. S. Jaganmohan Reddy as Chief Minister and threatened to quit their posts if this was not done.

In tune with the ongoing campaign by party leaders, the 13 YC chiefs said at a press conference here that Mr. Jaganmohan Reddy alone was capable of taking all the groups in the State unit together. He had all the qualities of leading the people and emulating his father by completing the ongoing welfare programmes. They maintained that true homage to YSR was to make his son the Chief Minister.
