'BJP doors closed for TDP permanently'

Rajahmundry: BJP’s national secretary and AP in-charge Sunil V Deodhar made it clear on Saturday that the doors of the party are permanently closed for the TDP. Deodhar said this in response to reports of TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu’s proposed alliance talks with the BJP.
“Naidu told his party leaders not to join the BJP, as the TDP is going for a 50-50 seat share alliance with the BJP in the state. Let me make it clear, BJP’s doors are permanently closed for Naidu,” he said. Though he thanked both YSRC and the TDP for supporting the government on abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu & Kashmir, he made it clear that it does not mean that the BJP will go for alliance with any party and will contest the upcoming local body elections alone.
Expressing hope that the development agenda of the BJP will be embraced by the people of AP, Deodhar said several political leaders, including some from the ruling YSRC, have evinced interest in joining BJP which is a sign of the party’s growing popularity in the state. “Over 8 lakh people have become members of the party since the launch of our membership drive in the state, taking the total number of members to about 15 lakh. Our target is to reach 25 lakh mark in AP,” he said.
Deodhar further informed that the BJP delegation which visited Polavaram project site on Friday will meet Union water resources minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat on Sunday and brief him about the status of the project.
