Thrust into political limelight after the death of his father YSR in an air crash last year,

Yeduguri Sandinti Jagan Mohan Reddy never hid his ambition to become the Chief

Minister of Andhra Pradesh, fuelling troubles for both the faction-ridden state Congress

unit and party high command with his defiant attitude. From a businessman to a Lok

Sabha MP from his family pocketborough of Kadapa, his rise was meteoric -- thanks to his

father late YS Rajasekhara Reddy's legacy and his popularity in Andhra Pradesh. The

37-year-old, who maintained a low profile till his father's death despite becoming an MP,

was forced to plunge into active politics by his father's supporters in the party. Called

'Jagan Anna' by his followers, he drew crowds and used his powerful media, a 24-hour

news channel and a mass circulation newspaper, to propagate his views and attack the

Rosaiah government that took charge after YSR's death.There was a campaign to install

him as the Chief Minister after his father's death on September 2, 2009. Jagan also never

said publicly that he was not in the race to succeed YSR.Jagan was maintaining silence till

he was told by Sonia Gandhi that she will decide the next chief minister of Andhra Pradesh

in October last year and started embarrassing the High Command whenever he got a

chance. A successful businessman who built a media empire in just five years, Jagan

Mohan wanted instant results. His impatience reflected in his open use of his media to flay

the functioning of Rosaiah government and siding with TDP MPs in Parliament against the

formation of a separate Telangana state.
