Senior Telugu actor Mohan Babu has joined YS Jagan Mohan Reddy's YSR Congress Party (YCP), but netizens are trolling him, saying that he deserves an Oscar Award for his performances at dharna drama.

Actor Mohan Babu formally joined the YCP in the presence of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy at the latter's Lotus Pond residence. The party took to Twitter to share the excitement over the prominent actor's presence. The actor also tweeted in Telugu, Jagan Babu is fighting for the Telugu community. He invited me to join his party in his fight. Hence, I am joining him."

Many followers of the party were happy with Mohan Babu joining the YCP. Besides welcoming him, they said that his presence in the party would be a morale boost and he will help the party to win more seats in Andhra Pradesh

It is a moral boost to ycp.definetly it will gain at least 10 more seats.

It is known that Mohan Babu recently held a dharna (protest) in Tirupathi against the non-payment of the fee reimbursement of the students by the TDP government. He had alleged that Nara Chandrababu Naidu was not honouring his commitment, as his education institutions had not received the fee reimbursement of Rs 19 crore.

Since Mohan Babu held the dharna weeks before the elections, he had come under severe criticism from public and media. His son Vishnu's wife is the cousin of Jagan Mohan Reddy. Now, his decision to join the YCP did not go down well with many netizens, who took to Twitter to troll him and condemn him. Here are their comments.
