C. Ramachandraiah is known as the close pal of Chiranjeevi from the moment he had joined Chiranjeevi's Praja Rajyam party. There were times, when in PRP, Allu Aravind and C. Ramachandraiah had some variations. At such time, this Union Minister has given his support to Ramachandraiah. Even Ramachandraiah accepted the merging of PRP with Congress. And he was loyal in congress party even after bifurcation of AP. But now the decision of congress to unite with TDP was not satisfactory to Ramachandraiah. And that is why Former Minister, C Ramachandraiah has left congress and had joined hands with YSRCP in the presence of its leader, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. And according to trusted sources, its said that this decision of Ramachandraiah was advised by Chiranjeevi himself. This is because, Chiru had his strong feeling that this time, YSRCP is going to win the elections and also that his brother's party, Jana Sena needs some more time to get strong enough for winning the elections. And its also being said that in the upcoming days, few more pals of Chiranjeevi are going to join YSRCP.
