A media report this morning suggested that popular industrialist Myhome Rameshwara Rao is all set to join BJP and the saffron party is contemplating to nominate him to Rajya Sabha. Myhome Rameshwara Rao is a close aide of Chief Minister KCR and also owns TV9, the most popular News Channel in Telugu.
Getting him to their fold will be very useful for BJP. Enforcement Directorate (ED) has raided various business of Rameshwara Rao last year. Rameshwara Rao has a stake in a Hindi News Channel and is also planning another in Bengali ahead of West Bengal elections.
Also, there is a shift in the politics in Telangana which may have prompted to take the decision. It looks like BJP is trying to suffocate KCR from all sides. If this happens to be true, it will exert the pressure of TRS. Clarity on it will emerge after Sankranthi, we are told.Follow @THEPANIPURI
