Marri Shashidhar Reddy Slams Reports Of Joining BJP

Hyderabad | 2nd July 2019
Senior Congress leader Marri Shashidhar Reddy on Tuesday refuted news reports that he was joining the BJP.

Speaking to mediapersons today, Marri said that he was a staunch Gandhian and would never join the party which inherited the legacy of Nathuram Godse, the killer of Mahatma Gandhi. He asserted that he would remain in the Congress till his last breath.

He also said that he had inherited the legacy of secularism from the Congress and from his late father and former AP Chief Minister Marri Channa Reddy, whose 100th birth anniversary would be celebrated this year, and that the BJP's philosophy was diametrically opposite to that.

Marri alleged that the BJP leaders were deliberately spreading false news that he, and with three other Congress leaders, were planning to join the BJP. He also alleged that the media ran a false story about his entry into the saffron party when a Congress leader from Medak district P Shashidhar Reddy joined the BJP a couple of days back.

He categorically stated that it would be impossible for a Gandhian like him to join the BJP.
