Actress Roja to quit TDP and join Congress
After the recent general elections, many politicians belonging to the parties that lost the elections, started jumping on to the Congress bandwagon hoping for some sort of share in the spoils of power.
There had been a spate of desertions from TDP, TRS and PRP. The latest news is that actress Roja, Telugu Desam Women’s Wing president, is likely to quit TDP and join the Congress party. This comes in the wake of another media report that Medak MP Vijaya Shanthi of TRS is also joining the Congress.
Many TDP activists including Roja feel that N Chandrababu Naidu may not hold a strong reign on the Telugu Desam Party and the party may again lose in the next elections.
AP Chief Minister DR YS Rajasekhar Reddy confirmed the party shift of Roja while speaking to some scribes in the premises of the State Assembly.
