7 Top Cong Leaders Likely To Jump Ship And Join Bjp | Hyderabad News

HYDERABAD: Following the resignation of AICC spokesperson Dasoju Sravan who is expected to join BJP in the presence of top leaders in Delhi on Saturday, BJP insiders said that another six to seven leaders from the Congress will be joining the party soon.
They include a prominent minister from the late YS Rajasekhara Reddy’s cabinet, a former MP from the city’s outskirts and a top leader from one of the old City segments. Interestingly, Munugode MLA Komatireddy Raj Gopal Reddy, who met Union home minister Amit Shah in Delhi, confirmed many Congress leaders are lining up to join the BJP.
The former MP will hold another round of talks before leaving the Congress, sources said. One of the Congress leaders was supposed to join the BJP but could not due to a family emergency. Another leader said he is in touch with BJP. “There will be many resignations this month and they will all join our ranks,” a BJP leader said. Sources said BJP leadership has set its sights on Congress leaders, with Munugode bypoll likely soon. “There are many good leaders who have been ignored in Congress and we will take them all,” the BJP leader said.
A month ago, BJP was lagging behind Congress in poaching TRS leaders. This seems to have changed. Warangal East TRS leader Errabelli Pradip Rao, brother of minister Errabelli Dayakar Rao, is expected to join the BJP. BJP sources said, prominent TRS faces will also be joining during the padayatra of BJP chief Bandi Sanjay. “Even in Munugode, once a stronghold of left parties, communist activists are joining the BJP. This is a perception shift,” a BJP leader said.
