Vastavam web: The Congress party in the state is set to suffer a major jolt as senior party leader from Kurnool Kotla Suryaprakash Reddy and his family has decided to join the TDP. Suryaprakash Reddy was miffed with the Congress party for not taking his advice on various issues seriously. He is learnt to have told his followers that he felt insulted and had decided to quit Congress party. Kotla family has good hold in the Kurnool constituency. The last straw on his back was the refusal of the Congress party to consider his advice to have electoral alliance with TDP. Following this, Reddy met Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu.
However, if Kotla joins TDP, then the Reddy and BC combine can ensure victory of TDP in seven assembly constituencies under the Kurnool Lok Sabha constituency. At present out of seven assembly constituencies, five assembly seats are with YSRCP.
