Jaya Pradha meets Gadkari, probable to join BJP

New Delhi: Politician and Member of Parliament from Rampur Jaya Pradha is possible to join the Bhartiya Janta Party. According to sources, the former actress also met BJP President Nitin Gadkari to discuss the matter.

Jaya Pradha wants to contest the 2014 Lok Sabha elections from her constituency and BJP’s Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi is likely to give up his seat for her and contest from Amroha instead.

She had quit the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) to join SP in early 2000. Recently, there were rumours that the actress was trying to woo back TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu from the Samajwadi Party.

Responding to the reports, Samajwadi Party General Secretary Azam Khan said the news did not come as a surprise to him given Jaya’s proximity to communal forces. He added that this was the reason that the Smajwadi Party had distanced itself from her.
