A while ago, we reported that Telugu Desam Party senior leader Rayapati Sambasiva Rao will be leaving the party to join in BJP.
Today, Sambasiva Rao confirmed that he will be joining in the Bharathiya Janatha Party very soon.
Incidentally, Rayapati was expecting TTD board chairman post when he was in TDP, but the party high command picked Putta Sudhakar Yadav over Rayapati. This did not go well with the seasoned politician and he eventually decided to leave the party.
It is said that BJP MLC Ram Madhav is the one behind this political move. He personally went to Rayapati’s house and invited him to join in BJP.
