Former Andhra Pradesh CM Kiran Kumar Reddy joins BJP, slams Congress leadership

Kiran Kumar Reddy, the former Congress leader and the last chief minister of undivided Andhra Pradesh N Kiran Kumar Reddy joined the BJP on Friday (April 7), in the presence of Union minister Pralhad Joshi.

Reddy praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi even as he slammed the Congress leadership for its inability to accept people’s verdict and make a course correction.

“They believe they are correct and all others, including the people of India, are wrong,” said Kiran Kumar Reddy. The Congress want authority to control but don’t want to work hard or take any responsibility, said the four-time former MLA, who had quit the Congress last month.

Citing his family’s over six-decade-long association with the Congress, Kiran Kumar Reddy said he never imagined he will leave the party. The Congress is getting damaged in all states and its high command does not interact with others or take their opinion, he said.

Kiran Kumar Reddy contrasted the rise of the BJP with the decline of the Congress since 1984 and lauded the ruling party’s leaders led by Modi for their hard work and commitment towards the nation.

They have clarity of thought and consistency, and taking courageous decision is the hallmark of the government, he said. Reddy also lauded Modi’s commitment to fighting corruption.

Joshi told the media that Reddy will strengthen their fight against corruption because his image as an MLA and minister has been very clean. It will be a big boost for BJP in Andhra Pradesh, he added.
