‘A homecoming':A. Narendra being welcomed by BJP leader Bandaru Dattatreya, G. Kishan Reddy and others after joining the party in Hyderabad on Monday. —
HYDERABAD: Former Union Minister A. Narendra, who returned to Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) along with three former MLAs — Mechineni Kishan Rao, Mandadi Satyanarayana Reddy and Vasu Reddy — on Monday, said that he would work for the party with commitment and without any aspirations.
“It's like homecoming to me and others as we have been associated with the party since the days of Jan Sangh,” Mr. Narendra said while speaking at a meeting organised to admit the leaders into the BJP fold. It was a happy reunion for him as he was welcomed back without any qualms, he said.
He said he felt bad when there were no feelers from the party when he remained neutral for two years. He said: “No leader in the party should feel insecure with my return, as I am not a contender or threat to anybody's position.”
‘Crucial role for party'
BJP State president G. Kishan Reddy said people were fed up with continuous deceit by the Congress and the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) and the ‘two eyes' theory of Telugu Desam Party (TDP), and were turning to BJP with the belief that it alone could achieve statehood for Telangana, he said. He stated that BJP would play a crucial role in Telangana in the coming days.
National vice-president of the BJP Purushottam Ropala asked people of the State to strengthen the party further so that they could serve them better. Mr. Satyanarayana Reddy and Mr. Kishan Rao urged the party leadership to utilise their experience and services for the cause of Telangana. Party leaders Bandaru Dattatreya, K. Laxman, N. Indrasena Reddy and others also spoke.
