In the presence of Union Minister Pralhad Joshi, the former chief minister of Andhra Pradesh, N Kiran Kumar Reddy, switched to the BJP and criticised the leadership of the Congress for failing to acknowledge public opinion and change course. N Kiran Kumar Reddy, a former leader of the Congress and the final chief minister of a united Andhra Pradesh, joined the BJP on Friday. He praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi and criticised the opposition party’s leadership. In front of Union Minister Pralhad Joshi, Reddy switched to the BJP and denounced the Congress leadership for refusing to heed the will of the people and change course.
He said that they think they are right and that everyone else, even Indians, is mistaken. The four-time former MLA, who had left the Congress last month, claimed that they wanted power to exert control but did not want to put in any effort or accept any responsibility. Reddy claimed he never thought he would leave the Congress, citing his family’s more than six-decade involvement. He claimed that the Congress is suffering harm in every state and that its upper command does not engage with or value other people’s opinions.
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 decisions is the hallmark of the government, he said. Reddy also lauded Modi’s commitment to fighting corruption.
