The uncertain political future of this former finance minister

Former minister Anam Ramnarayan Reddy is a deeply disgruntled man. He is not at peace with his own party, the YSRCP. The party did not give him any important post. While people far below him occupy positions of power, Anam has been completely marginalized. This is, according to political observers, the reason for its grouse.

On the last day of Independence, Anam did not receive the protocol he deserved and was not even invited to the official festivities. He is also upset that YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is not giving him time to present his case. To add insult to injury, none of the ministers in the Nellore District consult him on any matter. This deeply upset Anam Ramnarayan Reddy.

It was because of this anger and frustration that Anam recently spoke about the local Mafia. He said the local police were in collusion with the local mafia. However, Anam did not specify who the Mafia is and which police official is in cahoots with them. Without clarification, this is nothing but a savage allegation and the police have dismissed those comments.

The problem for Anam is that he isn’t even sure to get a YSRCP ticket for the 2024 election. Jagan doesn’t even consult him on any issues. If he does not get the party ticket, his political career will be at an impasse. It is this frustration that makes him talk this way, according to sources. What situation for someone who was Minister of Finance of the undivided State?
