Congress MLA of Kamalapuram G. Veerasiva Reddy lambasted YSR Congress Party president and Kadapa MP Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy on Saturday accusing him of resorting to tall talk that the Congress government in the State survived on his benevolence, though his party lacked the required strength.

Mr. Jaganmohan Reddy does not have the “magic figure” and was nowhere near it, Mr. Veerasiva Reddy asserted in a news conference here. None can dislodge the Kiran Kumar Reddy government and it would continue in power until the 2014 elections, the MLA maintained.

He dared the Kadapa MP to forward resignations of MLAs and MLCs backing him, if he had at least the support of a dozen elected representatives.

The MLA alleged collusion between Jagan and TDP chief N. Chandrababu Naidu on the issue.
