Former minister JC Diwakar Reddy once again said that Congress has been buried "six feet under" and will not be resurrected in Seemandhra. "I told this seven months ago. It won't get deposits in Semandhra. There will be no candidates to contest on Congress party tickets," he added.
He announced that he will join TDP in the presence of TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu on March 23.
Replying to a question, JC said that cinematic charisma and doing politics are two entirely different things.
Interestingly, he also said that Raaptadu MLA Paritala Sunita, who vociferously opposed his entry into TDP, is like a sister to him.
The JC family and the Paritala family have had a long-standing feud, which continued with Pairta;a Sunita after her husband Paritala Ravi's death.
