Another YSR Congress legislator joins TDP
YSR Congress MLA Vantala Rajeswari on Saturday joined the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) on Saturday.
Rajeshwari, who is the YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) MLA from Rampachodavaram, joined TDP in presence of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu in Amaravati.
According to reports, Rajeshwari is the 22nd YSR Congress Party MLA to have defected to the TDP.
YSRCP chief Jagan Mohan Reddy, who is the leader of the opposition in the Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly, had earlier said that his party would boycott all forthcoming sessions of the Andhra Pradesh assembly if all of its MLAs, who defected to the ruling Telugu Desam Party, are not disqualified immediately.
Rajeswari leaving the YSRCP comes just two days ahead of the party's 8-month Padayatra aimed at connecting with the people.
According to reports, some more YSRCP MLAs from Rayalaseema and Uttarandhra region may join the TDP soon.
