Former MP Gangula Pratap Reddy on Wednesday joined Telugu Desam Party in presence of party national president Nara Chandrababu Naidu.
The joining of Pratap Reddy in TDP created sensation in the wing of Minister Akhila Priya following rumors that went viral that the Chief Minister reportedly assured him of MLA ticket from Allagadda. Spruces said that she was not informed of his joining into the party.
When Akhila Priya was participating in poll campaign along with Hindupur MLA Balakrishna, went in the midway after knowing the news and held an emergency meeting with her important followers. It may be recalled here that there were severe differences between Bhuma and Gangula cadre in Allagadda.
Meanwhile, YSRCP general secretary Vijaya Sai Reddy in a statement clarified that Gangula Pratap Reddy does not belong to YSRCP as was reported in a section of electronic and print media. He condemned the false propagation.
