Is Vallabhneni Vamsi Joining BJP?
In a recent picture, which is doing rounds on the internet, Gannavaram TDP MLA Vallabhaneni Vamsi can be seen sitting with BJP's union minister Kishan Reddy and former minister Paidikondala Manikyala Rao. This has triggered rumors that he is considering leaving the party and joining BJP.
Vamsi has been keeping away from the party activities after winning the elections in 2019. He even skipped a meeting held at party chief Chandrababu Naidu later last month. Some alleged that he is not reachable over this phone also.
However, a source close to Vamsi says that all the three leaders Vamsi, Kishan Reddy and Paidikondala Manikyala Rao have attended Swarna Bharati Trust program in Krishna district. The trust is run by vice president Venkaiah Naidu's daughter. The source claims that all the leaders chatted about many things, but politics was not discussed.
TDP is anyways in a panic mode, after rumors that 16 of 23 TDP MLAs are in touch with BJP.
