While welcoming Vijayawada (West) ex-MLA Vellampally Srinivas into YSRCP at the party headquarters here, YS Jagan said the exodus which has just begun will continue until the party gets into power in the state. "The joining of leaders like Vellampally Srinivas in YSRCP is a clear indication of the political future of the state," he said and assured that those who join the party will be given their due positions and all the respect and dignity.

YSR Congress party has received a shot in the arm with youth leader and former MLA from Vijayawada (West) Vellampalli Srinivas joining the party.

Srinivas, a dynamic leader in Vijayawada, contested on the Bharatiya Janata Party in 2014 elections against then YSR Congress party candidate Jaleel Khan who defected to Telugu Desam Party later.
