He was the supposed vanguard of Samaikyandhra struggle and was all over the place with his statements.
But, former MP Sabbam Hari's anti-climax shocked everyone. Even the Jai Samaikyandhra Party chief Kiran Kumar Reddy is shocked beyond belief.
A day before the all-important election, Sabbam simply withdrew from the contest. The bigger shock was that he asked the people to vote for the BJP candidate.
Sabbam Hari was one of the co-founders of the JSP. Three other founding members - ministers Pithani Satyanarayana, Erasu Pratapa Reddy and T.G.Venkatesh had already deserted Kiran.
But, Sabbam's shocker, coming as it did barely hours before the polling, must have been a big blow for the already beleaguered Kiran Kumar Reddy.
