Former MLA of Ananthapur, Gurunath Reddy, is at present a YSRCP leader. His political career began with Congress Party. Later, he fell out with it and joined YSRCP under late Dr. Rajasekhar Reddy. He later left YSRCP to join Telugu Desam Party (TDP). He changed parties again and jumped back into in YSRCP, under Jagan. He denied that he had 'back-stabbed' YSRCP by helping TDP candidate, B.Tech Ravi, against his own party candidate, Y.S.Vivekananda Reddy. At the outset, Mukha Mukhi programme manager, Jaffer, made him take a vow that he would speak nothing but the truth.
