Roja, the popular leader of YSRCP, has switched off her mobile phone after YS Jagan Mohan Reddy inducted 25 ministers in his cabinet.
She has refused to come into touch with the top brass of YSRC. Roja was hoping to secure a place in the first cabinet of YS Jagan but she got raw deal due to the caste equations.
Roja belongs to Reddy community. As Peddireddy Ramachandra Reddy has been inducted into the cabinet from the Chittore district, Roja was excluded since she also hails from the same district.
But her cadre and fans were not happy with Jagan's decision. Respecting the mood of her cadre, she didn't attend the swearing-in ceremony of ministers today.
She and her assistants have now switched off the phones.
Roja fought like a lioness when Y S Jagan was in opposition and stood beside him like a rock.
She got humiliated by TDP leaders on several occasions during assembly sessions and was also expelled by speaker but she never went on back foot on attacking TDP.
Although she got flak for her abusive language, Roja has been very loyal to YS Jagan.
