Will Vijayashanti Return To BJP Fold?

Will Vijayashanti Return To BJP Fold?

The recent meeting of senior actress-turned-politician Vijayashanti with Union minister of state for home G Kishan Reddy has triggered speculations about her return to Bharatiya Janata Party, after calling it quits to the Congress party.

In fact, Vijayashanti, who was designated as star campaigner of the Congress during 2018 assembly elections, has been keeping away from the party activities for more than a year. 

She expressed her dissatisfaction several times openly stating that the party leaders have not been inviting her to any of the party programmes at Gandhi Bhavan and have not given her any responsibility.

Even during the ongoing by-elections to Dubbak, which is part of Medak parliamentary constituency which she had represented in the past, the Congress leadership has not involved her.

This has led to the talk that Vijayashanti might return to the BJP, from where she had begun her political career under the guidance of her mentor Ale Narendra in early ‘2000s. Apparently, the BJP leaders are holding negotiations with her to attract her into the party.

Realising that Vijayashanti’s defection to the BJP might dent the prospects of the Congress at least to some extent, the PCC leadership quickly jumped into action to pacify her.

PCC working president Jetty Kusuma Kumar went to Vijayashanti’s residence on Wednesday and held talks with her.

It remains to be seen whether Vijayashanti, aka Ramulamma, would remain in the Congress or defect to the BJP to test her luck in future.
