Yesterday, the dynamics of AP politics gained a steep momentum with 4 MLAs and 1 MLC belonging to YSRCP bid their goodbye to Jagan and joined TDP in Chandrababu's presence. Among these defected YSRCP MLAs was Jammalamadugu MLA Adinarayana Reddy.
Adinarayana Reddy getting a warm welcome into TDP by Babu himself didn't go down well with the Jammalamadugu TDP in-charge and former minister Rama Subbareddy and his aunt and former minister Siva Reddy's wife Lakshmidevamma who met Babu and vehemently opposed Adinarayana's entry into TDP.
Expressing her severe anguish on the low level politics where opportunistic leaders are changing their colors and are joining the party which they badmouthed in the past, Lakshmidevamma broke down into tears and asked Babu how could he welcome Adinarayana Reddy, who caused them numerous hardships over the years, into TDP.
Lakshmidevamma also said that she lost her husband and that her family sacrificed a lot for the sake of TDP's rise in Kadapa. Babu tried hard to explain to Lakshmidevamma that Adinarayana Reddy's inclusion into TDP was only to strengthen the party's roots in the region and he succeeded in convincing her in the end as Lakshmidevamma gave her nod even though a bit reluctantly.
