Rajasekhar and Jeevitha all set to join BJP
Actor couple Jeevitha and Rajasekhar who forayed into active politics in July 2008 by joining Congress party are now set to join the National party BJP on 25th of this month. They will take the primary membership of the party in the presence of BJP top brass leader Venkaiah Naidu on Wednesday morning at around 10.40 am in Nampally BJP office.
Reports say, the couple were in talks with the BJP leaders for sometime now. After getting clear assurance from the BJP leadership over the posts they would be getting, the duo has declared that they will join the party. Jeevitha would be offered a prominant post Ė South Indiaís BJP spokes-women. On the other hand, Rajasekhar might get a union minister post, if BJP regains the power in 2014 polls.
The duo started their political career with TDP and later moved to the Congress party during the tenure of late YS Rajasekhar Reddy as CM. After YSRís sudden demise, they resigned from the primary membership of the Congress and joined Jaganís YSR Congress party. But their stay in YSRC didnít last for too long, as differences propped up between the Yuva Neta and the Star Couple. After taking potshots at Jagan, they announced their decision to quit the party. Although they tried to join their parent party TDP using their good relations with Balayya, TDP Chief Chandrababu didnít show any interest in taking them into the party. Finally, they have chosen the BJP which is trying to regain its lost glory in Telangana using the strong sentiment in the region. Letís see, how long they can survive in this new party!
