"A very eminent personality will join the party at 10.30 am on Thursday at the AICC headquarters in New Delhi," Congress said
Upon arriving at Delhi airport, Sharmila hinted at joining the grand old party. When asked by reporters about the development, she said, "Yes, looks like it."
Following a party meeting in Hyderabad, she mentioned plans to meet Congress leaders Mallikarjun Kharge and Rahul Gandhi for a significant announcement in Delhi. Sharmila, daughter of the late YS Rajasekhara Reddy and sister of Andhra Pradesh CM YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, might assume a national role in Congress after YSRTP's merger, as per the sources. Having supported Congress in Telangana polls, she aims to counter alleged corruption under K Chandrasekhar Rao's leadership, they added.
