Earlier, he said he is not keen on destabilising the Congress Government in Andhra Pradesh.

“I don’t want to be in the state assembly right now. If I am there, they (Congress) will say I am there to destabilise the Government. I don’t want that,” he added.

Jagan claimed that he has no intention to destabilise the Nallari Kiran Kumar Reddy Government in Andhra Pradesh as he is preparing to face the Assembly elections in 2014.

He further said he has fast-tracked the process to register and launch his new political party before the by-elections for Kadapa and Pulivendula assembly constituencies are announced.
