MLC Annam Satish who recently resigned to Telugu Desam, has formally joined BJP in the presence of Working President JP Nadda. Earlier in the day in New Delhi, Satish met Nadda and then the formalities of joining the party took place.
After quitting TDP, Satish came down heavily on Nara Lokesh and added that Lokesh is responsible for his exit from the cycle party. Satish also alleged that Lokesh has no knowledge about TDP and its organizational structure. Yet Chandrababu is handing over the party responsibilities to Lokesh who is completely incapable. Under Lokesh’s leadership, TDP will go nowhere, said Satish.
In the year 2014 elections, Satish contested from Bapatla and lost to YSR Congress candidate. After that Chandrababu picked his name for the MLC post despite severe competition. Post the election results, Satish also lost hope that TDP will survive in the party and so he resigned.
Now it will be interesting to see what responsibilities will BJP hand over to Satish and how well can he tackle them in AP where BJP’s presence is very marginal.
