YSRC MLA from Bobbili in Vizianagaram R Sujaya Krishna Ranga Rao is mulling to join the ruling Telugu Desam party. He is closeted with his followers in Bobbili palace today and in all probability he would switch loyalties.
Mr Ranga Rao has been unhappy with the party leadership after former minister from the district Botcha Satyanarayana was admitted into YSRC. He tried to leave the party but deferred the plan after Jagan’s emissaries- Vijaya Sai Reddy and YV Subba Reddy held confabulations.
Mr Rao has met Ashok Gajapathi Raju recently after the death of Anand Gajapathi Raju and both have reportedly shared ideas. Mr Botcha was a common rival to both of them.
It was Mr Rao who served the no confidence notice against Speaker on behalf of YSRC recently.
If Sujay joins TD, he will be the 12th man to defect.
Another MLA from Giddalur in Prakasham district- Mr Ashok Reddy may also join TD
