Jagan Anna, People have given you 151 MLAs not to run after fearing 28 MLCs. People thought you would fight bravely. Did not think you are such a coward,” Kesineni Nani tweeted. The tweet is going viral on social media. On the other hand, there are mixed reactions over this move even from the YSR Congress supporters.
