Kavuri is quite confident that Modi wave would sweep Lok Sabha seats in the successor state of Andhra Pradesh. Kavuri heaped praises on Modi and said that Modi, a former chaiwala, knew the pulse of common man. However, sitting Eluru MP Kavuri is not in poll fray this time. Already, Congress party in Seemandhra turned out almost empty.
Former Union textiles minister and senior Congress leader from Eluru (Seemandhra) Kavuri Sambasiva Rao has formally joined BJP in the presence of its PM candidate Narendra Modi in Bhimavaram. With this, Kavuri’s 47-year-old association with Congress has come to an end.
