The defection of leaders from TDP to BJP is not stopping yet. Four Rajya Sabha MPs followed by former MLA Ambika Krishna have already taken up the saffron party. Even before this episode is over, one more TDP leader has quit the party. The more shocking news is, this leader is close relative to Hindupur MLA Nandamuri Balakrishna.
He is Krishna district's Potluri Krishna Babu from Pamarru constituency. Along with his wife, Krishna Babu have joined the BJP in the presence of Incharge of BJP Mahila Morcha, Daggubati Purandeswari. It is being widely discussed that Purandeswari is heard to be playing a key role in pulling TDP leaders to BJP and we might expect more leaders in future.
There are also allegations that Balakrishna is doing no efforts to contain his relatives who are already in TDP since ages from leaving the party. Looks like BJP is doing 'Operation Akarsh' on TDP with full force.
