It is a known fact that Puri Jagannath shares good relationship with late YSR and his family. According to latest information Puri Jagannath’s family is all set to join YSRCP. Insiders reveal he is trying to make his wife Lavanya contest Loksabha elections from Anakapalli constituency and his brother Uma Shankar Ganesh is trying for Narsipatnam assembly ticket. YSRCP is looking for winning faces and since Anakapalli has substantial kapu community votes, they are looking for charismatic people who can win elections.

Puri Jagannath hails from Kottapalli village, Kotapuratla Mandal. His brother Umasankar Ganesh worked as TDP Mandal leader in the region before joining YSRCP. During his Oradrpu Yatra YS.Jagan particularly visited Puri’s native place Bikepalli. Later during Payakaraopeta byelections YS.Vijayamma along with her daughter YS.Sharmila stayed in Puri’s house. Jagan attended Puri Jagannath’s daughter function at Hyderabad. Buzz is Puri informed Jagan that if his brother Ganesh gets Narsipatnam assembly ticket, he would work for his victory.

Ganesh also turned Jagan’s loyalist and started meeting his family and even participated in Sharmila’s yatra in Kurnool, Mahaboobnagar districts. It has to be seen whether Puri who showcased his loyalty towards Jagan by including his wife’s still shaking hands with Jagan in CGR will allow his wife to contest elections or not.
