Appointment with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has been confirmed for Kavuri today at 10:30 AM and is likely to submit his resignation.
Digvijay Singh upset
With news of Kavuri quitting Congress waving in the capital city, Andhra Pradesh incharge Digvijay Singh expressed his concern. Reacting to the reports, Digvijay said, “Kavuri and his family members have been true Congressmen and quitting party at crucial time will send wrong message to the people. I request him to withdraw his thoughts of leaving the party and the UPA government will standby the Seemandhra people in all sorts post bifurcation.”
To join BJP?
Earlier there were rumors that Kavuri is looking at Telugu Desam Party [TDP], however West Godavari TDP leaders opposed his entry and so Kavuri backed at the last minute. Now we hear that BJP is trying to pull into their flag and Kavuri also seems to be showing interest in joining the BJP.
