Telugu Desam Party MLA, Ganta Srinivas Rao has been contemplating a defection for a long time now. He is planning to leave TDP and join either BJP or YSRCP.

Going by the latest updates, it appears to be that Ganta might be joining YSRCP sooner or later.

Reportedly, Ganta Srinivas Rao will be meeting with YS Jagan Mohan Reddy on October 3rd and could be openly supporting YSRCP from there on.

Ganta withstood a strong YSRCP wave in Andhra Pradesh elections and won from Bhimili constituency in the 2019 general election. He has been staying away from TDP activities since the election results came out.

TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu, on numerous occasions in the past, talked Ganta into staying with TDP at least for the time being. But the latest developments imply that Ganta has made up his mind to leave TDP.

Notably, a section of leaders of YCP, including minister Avanthi Srinivas Rao, have been opposing Ganta’s joining in YCP. It remains to be seen how Jagan will handle this crucial situation now.
