Yesterday, YSRCP senior leader Vijayasai Reddy said that TDP MLA Ganta Srinivasa Rao, who recently resigned his post is ready to join their party.
“Ganta asked us(YCP) if we are willing to let him join our party. We have kept his proposal on hold. If Jagan gives his nod, he might be allowed to join YCP,” Vijayasai Reddy.
Also, Ganta’s close friend Kasi Viswanath joined YSRCP in the presence of Vijayasai Reddy yesterday and that added more weight to the latter’s claims.
However, Ganta has given a rude shock to Jagan and his troops today.
“I am not leaving TDP. I just resigned my post to express my discontentment with the privatization of Vizag steel plant. I never said I am ready to join YCP. Anyone claiming otherwise are blatantly lying,” he said.
Well, Ganta has made it clear that he did not approach YCP, let alone asking them permission to join the party. This comes just a day after Vijayasai Reddy’s public statement.
