Former Minister Adinarayana Reddy has formally joined the BJP in the presence of BJP National Working President JP Nadda in Delhi. For a long time, Adinarayana Reddy has been meeting BJP leaders ever since Jaganmohan Reddy became CM in AP. Adinarayana Reddy has serious differences with the Jagan group in the Kadapa district politics. He is facing specific threat from the YCP leaders since he left that party after winning the 2014 polls on the YCP ticket.
Adinarayana Reddy’s joining BJP is being considered a political calculated strategy because of the faction politics in Kadapa. Moreover, it has become a do or die struggle for Adinarayana Reddy because of the brute force of the Jagan camp in the district. Adinarayana Reddy is under heavy target as he challenged the YCP in Kadapa Lok Sabha Election in 2019 but got defeated.
