We hear that Botsa is in touch with BJP top brass and holding back talks. Sources in the know confirmed the news. On other side ex Union Minister Kavuri Sambasiva Rao has already set his ground to join BJP. Earlier, D. Purandeswari joined BJP and likely to contest from Visakhapatnam Lok Sabha. However, it is unclear in case of Botsa and Kavuri as whether they got assurance on Assembly ticket or Parliament ticket. If Botsa joins BJP, certainly it is a big jolt to Congress President Sonia Gandhi.
Since Botsa couldn’t join arch rival TDP, Jagan’s YSR Congress, Kiran Kumar Reddy’s Jai Samaikyandhra Party and Pawan Kalyan’s Jana Sena for various reasons, Botsa has no other option left except BJP. With elections fast approaching, everyone is making their own plans for their political survival. And of course, Congress in Seemandhra is almost wiped out.
