: Eyebrows were raised when E. Surya Narayana Reddy alias Sureedu, the close personal assistant of former Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, made his appearance at the inaugural function of a hotel in Vijayawada.

He was seen along with Irrigation Minister Devineni Uma Maheswara Rao, Deputy Speaker Mandali Buddha Prasad, Telugu Desam MLC Buddha Venkanna and chairman of the Sri Kasi Annapurneswari Kamat Hotel chairman, Singaraju Subba Raju. His appearance touched off speculation that he may join the Telugu Desam, which could be a huge embarrassment for YSRCongress.

Though Sureedu, once close to Rajasekhara Reddy, is not a political bigwig, his sudden hobnobbing with TD leaders set the tongues wagging. There are reports that he had made a couple of abortive attempts earlier to win the hearts of the TD leadership after distancing himself from his mentor’s family.
