Sattupalli TDP MLA Sandra Venkata Veeraiah is on those rare MLA’s who refuse to take TRS chief KCR’s bait till date. But with the changing scenario, this time around, Sandra decided to join the TRS shorty.
Sandra is one of the two TDP MLA’s who won recent Telangana assembly polls from Khammam district. TDP president Chandrababu on Friday issued orders sacking Sandra from the post of TTD member.
Earlier, Naidu re-appointed Sandra as TTD member on December 29, 2018, and as per norms anyone appointed to that post should take charge within a month but Sandra till date didn’t even assume charge.
There are speculations rounding the state that KCR is trying to lure Sandra into Cabinet in Thummala’s place to strengthen TRS in Khammam district before Lok Sabha Polls. If he goes, the TDP would be completely wiped out in Telangana. There is also news that Nama Nageswara Rao is also planning to join TRS. Sandra is likely to be taken into the cabinet by KCR on Feb 19th during cabinet expansion.
