Protesting against the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh, Congress MP from Guntur Rayapati Samba Siva Rao resigned from the primary membership of the party and praised BJP Prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.
Rao, who had earlier sent his resignation from the US to Lok Sabha Speaker after the Congress decision to carve out a separate state, today sent a letter to party President Sonia Gandhi asking her to accept his resignation from the primary membership of Congress party.
Accusing the Congress of doing injustice to Telugus and warned that a slew of resignations would follow, the MP said Modi was attracting students and youth. With Modi on their side, BJP may come out in flying colours in Seemandhra region.
Asserting that BJP would improve its vote share in its constituency, the four time MP however, refused to comment whether he would join the BJP.
