Speaking to the media, Kamineni said he had no interest whatsoever to contest the assembly elections in 2014 elections also, but had to oblige the request of Vice President M Venkaiaha Naidu, who was then a key leader in the Bharatiya Janata Party.
“Since the BJP had an alliance with the TDP, we had an obligation to contest the polls. Venkaiah Naidu told me that the BJP got the opportunity to contest in that election and I should make use of the opportunity. That was how I got the chance to become an MLA,” he said.
This time since there was no alliance between the TDP and the BJP, he had no obligation to contest. However, Kamineni said he would continue in the public sphere to serve the people.
There were reports that Kamineni would call it quits from the BJP and would join the TDP.
However, he has realised that there is too much competition for the Kaikaluluru seat and his last minute defection might not fetch him the TDP ticket. But it is unlikely that he would continue in the BJP.
