Sankineni to join YSR Congress soon

Hyderabad, Oct 9, 2012:
TDP got a major blow in the Telangana region when its senior leader and former
MLA Sankineni Venkateswara Rao said he would soon announce his decision on joining
the YSRCP after discussing with his followers and supporters.

TDP leadership suspended Venkateswara Rao immediately after the latter
called on YSRC president Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy in the Chanchalguda jail on

Venkateswara Rao, party vice-president presently, has been associated
with the TDP ever since its inception in 1983 and worked as Tungaturti
Agricultural Market Committee Chairman in the past. For some years, he was also
in the inner circle of TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu.

Venkateswara Rao told newspersons after meeting Jagan he would soon take
a decision on joining the YSRCP after discussing the issue with party workers
and his supporters. He said TDP MPs met Chidambaram in Delhi on Oct 4 with the
tacit permission of Naidu only to seek attachment of Jagan’s properties. “Naidu
has been indulging in dirty politics,” he alleged.
