Dharmana Prasada Rao moving close to YSR Congress Party
According to sources, former R&B Minister Dharmana Prasada Rao who is representing Srikakulam Assembly is in all probability switch over to YSRCP. It is learnt that Prasada Rao who has been conducting a series of meetings with Srikakulam and Narasannapeta leaders sent strong signals that he was not able to adjust with the Congress party after the decision of CWC to divide the State.
Another reason is that he is angry with the party high command that forced him to resign from the Minister's berth after the CBI named him in the charge sheet. It may be recalled here that his brother Dharmana Krishnadas is already in YSRCP and has been made convenor of the party to the district.
