Congress leader and former GHMC Mayor Banda Karthika Reddy today joined the BJP in the presence of the party's GHMC election in-charge Bhupendra Yadav.
Speaking on the occasion, she lashed out at state Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister K T Rama Rao, and said that the minister was struggling very hard to the sinking ship that his party had become. She predicted that the TRS would lose the GHMC elections spectacularly, and that the BJP would take over the corporation.
She said that the Congress had allotted her ticket to somebody else twice, and that she had joined the BJP because she believed that she would not face the injustice that she had faced in the Congress, in the BJP.
She said that she would however not contest the GHMC elections.
