It is a widely known fact that ex union minister Purandareswari resigned from the Congress prior to the 2014 elections and joined BJP in a strategic move. At the time she said she was hurt by the way Congress handled bifurcation and she later joined the BJP. Similarly, Kavuri also joined BJP like her. Though Kavuri has kept his silence, Purandareswari’s latest statement has become the hottest topic for discussion in BJP and political circles.
When asked about her entry into TDP, Purandareswari said she was waiting for the right time. “We are hoping for various factors to come together,” she said. Naturally, this has hurt the sentiments of the BJP leaders and they now want an explanation from her.
News is that some BJP leaders have decided to make a formal complaint with the party high command to demand appropriate action. Meanwhile BJP is also looking the issue from various angles — Is Purandareswari the only one looking to join TDP? Is this Chandra Babu’s ploy? Etc.
