GHMC Polls: Ex-Mayor Karthika Reddy joins BJP

Hyderabad: Former Mayor Banda Karthika Reddy has formally joined the BJP on Wednesday along with her husband Banda Chandra Reddy and their followers. Union Minister of State for Home G. Kishen Reddy and party’s central observer Bhupendra Singh Yadav and other leaders welcomed the couple into the saffron party. Karthika Reddy was the first lady Mayor in recent times after Sarojini Pulla Reddy in 1965 to 66. Karthika Reddy was not born when Sarojini acted as the first citizen of the city. Born in 1977, Karthika was elected Mayor in 2009.

Karthik Reddy said at the very outset that she joined the party without any preconditions. She said she was attracted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s policies which are doing a lot of good to the country. She said she is convinced beyond doubt that the BJP is the only party which can give a fight to the TRS. “I have been impressed in the manner in which the BJP leaders worked as a team for the Dubbaka byelection victory. The Congress party has ditched us twice and never recognized our services to the party. I am sure justice will be done here and will strive to get majority to the party in GHMC,” she said in a statement.
