Kothapalli Geetha, former MP from Araku constituency, joined BJP today in the presence of party chief Amit Shah. Details as below.
Geetha won as MP from araku in 2014 elections the ticket of YSRCP party. She later leaned towards TDP and that irked party chief Jagan. She behaved like an independent MP rather than YSRCP MP during her tenure as MP. She even floated her own political party, Jana Jagruthi. Today she merged that party into BJP. It seems she has been in touch with Ram Madhav since quite some time.
BJP is very keen on strengthening their base in AP. It seems they have currently focusing on these former MPs, former MLAs. We will have to wait and see whether Geetha joining BJP will help the party in some way.
