New Delhi, Jan 12 (Agencies): Former Congress MP YS Jaganmohan Reddy claims he could bring down the party's Government in Andhra Pradesh but was doing it a favour by not asking his legislators to resign.

Jagan, as he is popularly known, came to the capital with more than 3,000 supporters and held a massive show of strength that included 24 Congress legislators and two MPs.

He undertook a daylong fast to highlight the "injustice" to Andhra Pradesh in the Krishna Water Disputes Tribunal Award and the plight of farmers.

"Currently, I am doing a favour to the Congress party. If my MLAs resign, the Government there will fall…," he said.

"My people are also saying in 2014 they will be contesting on my party ticket and not on a Congress party ticket. They are openly exhibiting that they are doing a favour to Congress party by continuing in the party," the former Kadapa MP said at Jantar Mantar, the 186-year-old observatory in central Delhi.
