Former CM of Andhra Pradesh joins BJP

N Kiran Kumar Reddy, who served as chief minister of Andhra Pradesh in the past, has defected from the Congress party and is now affiliated with the Bharatiya Janata Party.

Reddy went to Delhi on Thursday in order to meet with the most senior leaders in the BJP, and after consulting with them, he has decided to join the BJP.

At Reddy’s formal membership induction, Union Minister Prahlad Joshi and many other top party officials, including Telangana BJP MP Dr. Lakhshman, were present.

Kiran Kumar Reddy had already left the Congress party, thus this is not his first time doing so. The first time occurred in 2014 when the state was divided into two separate entities. He entered the race for the general election in 2014 as a candidate for a regional party known as the Jai Samaikyandhra Party, however, he was ultimately unsuccessful.

With the results of the general election in 2019, he was re-elected to Congress. despite the fact that he did not participate in any of the party’s initiatives in an active capacity. It was said that Reddy desired a position in the party that was on a national level; however, this claim was refuted, which led to his quiet.

Kiran Kumar Reddy, who just joined the BJP, commented on how effectively the coalition of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah was serving the nation after he made his new political affiliation known. He said that the reason he was interested in contributing to the cause was because of the way in which these two things were combined.

In addition, he was critical of Congress for not taking the leadership of the state seriously. He said that the Congress high commission was responsible for the party’s defeat in a number of states because they made a number of poor judgments. He went on to say that the Congress high commission is not aware of the ground realities of the state and that they only believe in dictating things from the leaders at the state level.
