Looks like the Telangana TDP is gradually losing its cadre after Revanth Reddy’s resignation. Adding to this list, actress Kavitha, well-known for her performance on Silverscreen is all set to join Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) next week in the presence of Telangana BJP President K Lakshman. Kavitha has been associated with Telugu Desam Party since 1984.
Confirming the news from a shooting location in West Godavari, actress Kavitha said that she was fed up with the attitude of Telugu Desam towards senior leaders who really worked hard for the party. “Despite TDP not coming to power for ten years, I chose to remain with the party. I have been with Telugu Desam during its hardships and worked hard for its betterment. But, TDP is not recognizing my efforts”, she said.
“It hurt me deeply when even Chandrababu Naidu remained mum when senior TDP leaders openly insulted me in meetings. There is a limit to everything and I have decided that it is time to say goodbye to Telugu Desam at this point, where TDP’s future in Telangana is uncertain’, actress Kavitha added.
Kavitha further explained that she was consulted by several parties in the last ten years but she only to chose to remain with TDP owing to her sincerity. The actress has met Telangana BJP President Lakshman Rao in Hyderabad before making an official announcement. It is believed that the BJP offered Kavitha a better role in the party as a senior leader, to which she agreed to join BJP unconditionally.
On the other hand, political analysts are of the view that TDP may soon shut down in Telangana with the ‘powerful party cadre’ moving out of its control!
