Even as the YSR Congress officially lost all its legislators in Telangana after they switched to the TRS on Friday, the party’s Andhra unit received another jolt as its MLA from Kurnool S V Mohan Reddy announced that he was quitting the party as he was "unable to stand the attitude" of its chief Y S Jaganmohan Reddy.

"I will join the Telugu Desam Party on Saturday after resigning from YSRC," Mohan Reddy told mediapersons in Kurnool.

Jagan had recently announced that he would launch an agitation in Kurnool on May 16 against the irrigation projects being "illegally built" by the neighbouring Telangana on the Krishna and Godavari rivers.

Mohan today claimed that he was not even informed about the agitation and was "pained" by this.

Till now as many as 16 MLAs have quit YSRC.
