Hyderabad: Giving a shock to the Congress party, the wife of senior leader and Election Manifesto Committee chairman Damodara Rajanarasimha joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) at the State office here on Thursday. 
Padmini Reddy joined the BJP in the presence of BJP State Chief Dr K Laxman and BJP general secretary P Muralidhar Rao, and accepted the saffron kanduva, after quitting the Congress. 
 Speaking to media, she said that she was a fan of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and she whole-heartedly joined the BJP as she appreciated the measures launched by the BJP for the welfare of the people. She expressed confidence that she would win the Sangareddy Assembly seat, if given a ticket to contest. 
Asked whether her husband Rajanarasimha would embrace the BJP, she refused to reply. Rajanarasimha was a Deputy Chief Minister earlier in the Congress regime.  It is learnt that Padmini Reddy was expecting a Congress ticket to contest from Sangareddy, which was given to former MLA Jayaprakash Reddy (Jagga Reddy). 
 Padmini joining the BJP was considered as a boost to the BJP in the State after Raja narasimha's political rival in his home constituency, Andole, Babu Mohan joining the BJP recently, quitting the TRS, as he was not given ticket by the party.
