Daggubati Purandeswari alias Chinnamma has set the record straight that she is "keen" to join Telugu Desam Party, founded by her father-late NTR. During an interaction with NRIs in Los Angeles on Saturday, Daggubati couple made the above statement when a section of NTR's fans expressed their desire to "see" them in TDP. Purandeswari and Mr Rao advised NRIs to invest in the new state of Andhra Pradesh and told them that it's the "right" time to invest. She heaped praises on Prime Minister Narendra Modi as well.
The former Union Minister has quit the Congress and joined BJP in protest against the "manner" in which state is divided. She contested from Rajampet Parliament constituency in 2014 but lost to YSRCP candidate. Though she sought for sitting Vizag MP ticket, she was given Rajampet which led to her defeat.
Chinnamma has been contemplating to comeback to her mother party. So, if all goes well, Daggubati Purandeswari and Venkateswara Rao will be back into TDP fold.
