The Congress may have found a way to heal its uneasy relations with the defiant MP from Andhra Pradesh, Jaganmohan Reddy. He may be inducted in the union ministry. The grapevine in the capital hasn't stopped buzzing since the heir apparent of late chief minister Y.S. Rajashekhara Reddy met Congress chief Sonia Gandhi recently.
Jagan, as he is popularly called, met Gandhi along with his mother Vijaylaxmi and sister Sharmila to seek her permission for a controversial rally through the troubled Telangana region in memory of his late father. Whatever be the fate of the rally, party insiders say the Congress high command wants to make Jagan a 'good leader' by inducting him in the Manmohan Singh government as a junior minister.
This will help in making the young MP shed his defiant posture and sink his differences with the state leadership. The party high command also want to pacify the supporters of Jagan, who are seething over the party's decision not to give the nod for his rally - an issue that has caused a rift in the state unit of the Congress.
