Purandeswari, husband all set to join BJP

Political realignment has commenced in the soon-to-be-divided Andhra Pradesh with top guns of the Congress and other regional outfits scouting for green pastures triggering speculations of exodus from the Congress unit riven with bifurcation woes.

Union Minister of State for HRD and NTR’s elder daughter Daggubati Purandeswari is all set to join the BJP along with her husband D Venkateswar Rao. Similarly, Chiranjeevi’s brother – Pawan Kalyan – has also announced his political foray and intention to contest in parliament and Assembly polls.

In a candid media interaction at Visakhapatnam, Purandeswari said she has plans to meet BJP leaders Advani, Rajnath and Arun Jaitely on Friday in Delhi. 

“I am not putting any conditions but I am confident that they will give me the Visakhapatnam parliament constituency, where I have worked all along,” she said. Her husband Daggubati Venk-ateswar Rao, who is the 

Congress MLA from Parchur in Prakasam district (who was in the BJP for a while), is also likely to join the BJP along with her.
