YS Sharmila ABN RKYS Sharmila is floating a new political party in Telangana today. She has paid homage to her late father at YSR Ghat, Idupulapaya, and started to Hyderabad where she will announce her party name later this evening. It is interesting to note that there is a full-page advertisement of the event in Andhrajyothy this morning.

The advertisement is the Telangana as well as the Hyderabad edition. It is even more interesting to note that there is no advertisement in Sharmila’s brother, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy owned Sakshi Newspaper. ABN – Andhrajyothy Radhakrishna was a rival of late YSR. He is now fighting against the Andhra Pradesh government led by YS Jagan Mohan Reddy as well.

Sharmila used to criticize RK when she campaigned for her brother. But then, RK has been close to Sharmila ever since she announced her intention to float a political party. Ever news of her party includng the first one about Sharmila’s plan to foray into Telangana politics came in Andhrajyothy.

By giving an ad to Andhrajyothi over Sakshi, Sharmila seems to be preferring the old rival over her brother.
