Congress MP YS Jagan Mohan Reddy on Sunday said he is pained by the suspension of Andhra Pradesh Congress general secretary Ambati Rambabu by the AICC.
Rambabu Jagan's close confidante. "Ambati Rambabu walked with my father for 1,500 kilometres during his historic 'padayatra' before 2004 elections. It is because of the work done by activists like him, Congress won assembly elections twice. I am pained by Rambabu's suspension. It hurt me a lot. I cannot speak more than this. Everybody knows the things that are happening," he said.
Jagan was speaking to reporters in East Godavari district where he was continuing his controversial yatra for the seventh day.
Asked if he would speak to the high command regarding the suspension of Rambabu, he said he would do whatever he can (to get it revoked).
Asked if he saw the suspension as an indirect warning to him, he said, "warning for what? What mistake I am doing to be warned? God is there and I have the blessings of my father".
Congress suspended Rambabu Saturday night on the charge of indulging in anti-party activities.
A statement from AICC in-charge of Andhra Pradesh M Veerappa Moily said Ramababu has been suspended with "immediate effect for his anti-party activities and making anti-party statements".
