Two weeks after a flexi hoax in Kakinada reading Kapu activist, former minister Mudragada Padmanabham coming up with a new party, a new development came as another shock to the AP political circles.
BJP which is on full swing invite former film actors and politicians into the party to strengthen its roots in the state, AP state unit president Somu Veerraju announced that he will soon meet Mudragada.
BJP, which has already garnered Jana Sena support, now seems to be trying to turn the Kapu community vote bank to BJP.
The saffron party already intensified potshots and protests against the attacks on Hindu temples in the state has joined JanaSena in the mission.
According to party sources, Somu is likely to meet Mudragada in the latter’s residence in Kirlampudi. The statement also claimed that Somu will meet Kala Venkata Rao, and Padala Aruna, another TDP leader from north Andhra.
Sources also confirmed that the meet is a part of Operation Akarsh thereby to stand as an alternative for YSRCP in the state.
If Mudragada who is now staying away from the state politics accepts Somu’s invitation, it would turns a kappa magnet for the party which already has the support of Pawan Kalyan. It can be noted that Somu has recently met film actress Vani Viswanath to invite her into the party.
