Veteran Tollywood actor Mohan Babu has enrolled himself in the YSR Congress party in the presence of its chief Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy.
Mohan Babu, who was with the Telugu Desam Party since its inception and also one-time Rajya Sabha member from the party, has said only the YSR Congress is capable of alleviating the problems faced by people.
Accompanied by his son and actor Manchu Manoj, the veteran expressed hope that the YSRCP would sweep the elections in Andhra Pradesh.
“I did not join the YSR Congress for any posts or power and I would campaign for the victory of the YSR Congress candidates in the coming elections,” he said.
He added: “Though I was invited by different parties including the TDP and the BJP, I preferred to join the YSR Congress.”
A Padma Shri recipient, Mohan Babu has established Sri Vidyanikethan Educational Trust. He enjoys support in Rayalaseema region and Chittoor district.
