YSR Congress MP quits, joins TDP
Giving a blow to YSR Congress chief Jagan Mohan Reddy, one of his MPs has joined Chandrababu Naidu's Telugu Desam Party (TDP), reports said.
Three-time MP from Nandyal, SPY Reddy, who joined the YSR Congress in September last year, on Sunday joined the TDP, after a meeting with Chandrababu Naidu in the national capital.
Kurnool MP Butta Renuka is also expected to join soon while her husband Neelakantam has joined the TDP along with SPY Reddy. Neelakantam was elected in 2009 on a Congress ticket.
This comes after TDP emerged the clear winner in the Seemandhra region of Andhra Pradesh.
"I have joined TDP not because of any differences with the YSR Congress but for the development of my region. The BJP is ruling at the Centre and TDP is set to be ruling Andhra Pradesh," Reddy told media.
