leader

P
Sudhakar

from Telangana met Prime Minister Narendra

Modi

here on Sunday and shifted his loyalty. He has severed ties with the

Congress

party and has expressed his desire

to
join

the

BJP

.

“I have been with the
Congress party for last 40 years and have served at various positions including in NSUI, and IYC. I have been humiliated several times on the party forum but I continued
towork as a disciplined worker of the party,” said
P
Sudhakar
Reddy.

“But due
to the failure of local leadership in Telangana, I was badly defeated in the last elections. The parliamentary elections are going on under their leadership again,” said
Reddy.

“The politics in
Congress is now commercialised as the middlemen have increased and sincere workers are sidelined. The voice is not reaching up
to the leadership in the
Congress,” he added.

“I have brought it
to the notice but no remedies were made,” said
Reddy.

He also alleged the
Congress has seen Pulwama terrorist attack in the light of politics which is unfortunate.

“I was deeply hurt by the politics on Pulwama terror attack in which our brave soldiers died. On the matter of national security, there should be no politics. In Narendra
Modi I have seen a strong leadership, which is lacking in Rahul Gandhi,” he said.

In the memorandum submitted
to the Prime Minister, he has requested him
to take up execution, maintenance, rehabilitation, and resettlement, planning of Polavaram project, initiate and execute Bayyaram and Kadapa steel plants in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh among other demands.

The seven-phase Lok Sabha polls are set
to begin on April 11 and will end on May 19. The counting of votes will take place on May 23.
