The meeting of Telugu Desam Party legislator from Gannavaram Vallabhaneni Vamsi with senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader from Telangana and Union minister of state for home G Kishan Reddy in Vijayawada raised many eyebrows.
Vamsi attended a function of Swarna Bharati Trust (promoted by Vice President of India M Venkaiah Naidu) on Sunday, in which Kishan Reddy attended as the chief guest.
The TDP MLA was found hobnobbing with Kishan Reddy as well as former minister Pydikondala Manikyala Rao.
Apparently, Vamsi also had a private conversation with Kishan Reddy at a one-on-one meeting after the function, leading to speculations as to whether he would be shifting his loyalties to the BJP.
As of now, there is no official confirmation about this private meeting.
But, the meeting assumed significance in the wake of the statement from BJP Andhra Pradesh incharge Sunil Deodhar that as many as 18 MLAs from TDP were in touch with the saffron party and they might join the BJP sooner or later.
May be, the meeting of Vamsi with Kishan Reddy is part of this strategy.
The TDP MLA has been acting rather strangely, just like Vijayawada MP Kesineni Nani, after the elections, making controversial comments.
Vamsi, who managed to retain his seat with a slender margin of 838 votes in the recent elections, is said to be unhappy with the TDP leadership and is looking for alternative options.
