Ready for tie-up with like-minded parties: BJP, Bharatiya Janata Party, M Venkaiah Naidu. Venkaiah Naidu said that he would not react on speculations about proposed meeting of the actor with the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi at this stage.
• Venkaiah: Support Modi for devt of both T and Seemandhra
• Former TRS leader from Medak Raghunandan Rao joins BJP
Hyderabad: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) senior leader M Venkaiah Naidu on Tuesday stated that his party had no objection to join hands with like-minded parties to make the nation free from the Congress misrule.
He made this statement in response to a query about BJP’s plans for the new political outfit, Jana Sena, launched by actor Pawan Kalyan.
Venkaiah Naidu said that he would not react on speculations about proposed meeting of the actor with the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi at this stage.
Addressing a press conference here, Naidu stressed the need for voters from the Telangana and the Seemandhra to support Modi’s candidature for speedy development of both the proposed States. He rebutted claims made by some regional parties that they would ensure rebuilding of the new State.
Meanwhile, the BJP leader was highly critical of Seemandhra Congress leaders for their statements crediting Sonia Gandhi for special category status to the residuary State of Andhra Pradesh. The Congress had virtually become a non-entity with not a single party coming forward to tie up with it, he said.
Earlier at a programme held at the party office, former TRS leader from Medak district Raghunandan Rao joined the BJP in the presence of G Kishan Reddy and other senior leaders.
Put off poll on Rama Navami
Meanwhile, a BJP delegation-led by Baddam Bal Reddy met State Election Commissioner Ramakanth Reddy and submitted a representation seeking postponement of local body polls scheduled for Rama Navami (April 8). The commission said that they would bring it to the notice of the Supreme Court and take a decision accordingly.
