Controversial seer Swami Paripoornanda has recently joined the saffron party and the party is reportedly thinking of fielding him as BJP’s Chief Minister candidate for the Telugu candidates.

BJP national President Amit Shah had reportedly thought that the Swami is an ideal face for the Chief ministerial candidate in Telangana but the leaders in Andhra BJP stated that Paripoornanda should be made the CM candidate of Andhra BJP as well.

The BJP seems to be banking on the ‘Hindutva’ sentiment after it worked out well for Yogi Adityanath in Uttar Pradesh. According to sources, the party is trying to promote the religious sentiment in the people and attract the seer’s followers as well to win votes.
