“The sad part is that they are not interested in any course correction. If a mistake has been made, it should be acknowledged and efforts should be made to correct it. There is no such thing in Congress. Because of the wrong decisions of the Congress high command, the party is losing everywhere,” he said.

Reddy, who was the last chief minister of Andhra Pradesh before its bifurcation in 2014, resigned from the Congress on March 12, for the second time in nine years.

Reddy also praised the BJP leadership for taking bold decisions in the interest of the nation. “The determination with which they are implementing their welfare policy is highly commendable. I am motivated by the vision and determination of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Now I have joined the party and whatever role is assigned to me, I will do it with enthusiasm,” he said.

Reddy took over as the 16th Chief Minister of undivided Andhra Pradesh after his predecessor K Rosaiah stepped down due to personal reasons. The Congress leadership appointed Rosaiah to the post after CM YS Rajasekhara Reddy died in a helicopter crash in September 2009.

A cricketer-turned-politician, Reddy is a four-time MLA who won from Vayalpadu (merged with Pileru Assembly constituency) in the 1989, 1999 and 2004 assembly elections. He lost to the Telugu Desam Party in the 1994 polls, but he won again in 2009 from Piler.
