Big shock to TDP, 4 Rajya Sabha MPs may join BJP
Four Rajya Sabha members of Telugu Desam Party (TDP) are likely to join the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), TDP sources said on Thursday.
Amaravati: Its a big set back for the TDP party, while the party president N Chandrababu Naidu is out on the foreign tour. At a once, the four TDP Rajya Sabha MP's have given an unexpected shock to the party.
The Rajya Sabha MP's CM Ramesh, Sujana Chowdary, Garikapati Mohan Rao, TG Venkatesh who are seniors in the party and very close to Chandrababu Naidu has decided to say goodbye to the party.
In recent elections, the TDP has faced a terrible defeat. With the results, the leaders have taken the decision to quit the party.
It's said that the four MP's are in continuous touch with the BJP national president Amit Shah. It's learned that the MP's will be meeting the Vice President Venkaiah Naidu to consider them as a separate member in association with BJP in the Rajya Sabha.
It's learned that the BJP president Amit Shah has handover the joining of these four MP's to the party working president JP Nadda.
On behalf of four MP's, Sujana Chowdary will be giving a representation letter to Venkaiah Naidu to recognize them as the BJP associate members.
With the switchover of these four MP's, TDP will be left with only two members in Rajya Sabha and will also lose the status of the opposition party.
