Purandheshwari to Join BJP, Purandheshwari to quit Congress, Purandheshwari joins BJP
Hyderabad: As per the sources, all is set for Union minister of state D. Purandeswari and Daggubati Venkateshwar Rao to join BJP.
Her joining BJP gained currency after her meeting with BJP leader Venkaiah Naidu. With Visakhapatnam Lok Sabha seat seems to be the bone of contention between Purandheshwari and Rajya Sabha member T. Subburami Reddy, the minister might allegedly go to any extent to grab the seat, even if it is on BJP ticket.
In case the tie-up between BJP and TDP gets through, BJP will seek Visakhapatnam and Guntur Lok Sabha tickets. As BJP Kishan Reddy has clearly stated that the party would contest individually in the Elections, BJP will be putting up the candidates for Visakhapatnam and Guntur Lok Sabha constituencies.
Meeting of the activists from Visakhapatnam constituency is being called off this morning to discuss the same, as reported.
Since Lagadapati seems to have no hopes on a Congress ticket this time, he wants to try his luck from Eluru on a BJP or TDP ticket. MP Lagadapati Rajagopal and Gunutr MP Rayapati Sambasiva Rao are also thinking on the same lines, it is being said.
