Yet in another jolt, YSRCP Ramachachodavaram (ST) constituency MLA Vantla Rajeswari today joined the Telugu Desam Party in the presence of its president Nara Chandrababu Naidu at his residence.
With the fresh joining of party MLA to TDP, the number of defected MLAs had gone to 22. The exist of Rajeswari came well before a couple of days of Jagan Mohan Reddy’s ‘ Praja Sankalpa Yatra’ slated to begin on November 6 from Idupulapaya. It may be recalled that YSRCP has decided to boycott the AP Assembly demanding action against defectors.
Rajeswari speaking to media at the Chief Minister’s residence said Jagan Mohan Reddy was not bothered about the development of her constituency and did not even give her the opportunity to speak in the Assembly which was tantamount to depriving her of the right to raise the issues of public concern. She further said that she was impressed by the leadership of Chandrababu Naidu who promised all help in developing her constituency by giving funds under the ST Sub-Plan and other schemes. Meanwhile Jagan’s padayatra aims to explain the failures of the government and understand the people’s problems
