Former minister and BRS leader Motkupalli Narsimhulu met Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister D.K. Shiv Kumar in Bengaluru leading to speculation that he would soon join the Congress.

Mr. Narsimhlu who joined the BRS from the BJP in July 2021 is peeved that the party has ignored him for the elections and Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao has denied him an appointment despite several requests. Mr. Narsimhlu hailed KCR as the ‘New Ambedkar’ while joining the BRS.

He is expected to join the Congress soon eyeing the Tungaturthi seat, which already has many aspirants, including senior leader Addanki Dayakar. Sources said the Congress has not confirmed the seat for him but his services would be utilised. A senior Dalit leader, Mr. Narsimhlu served as a minister in the TDP government representing the Tungaturthi constituency.

He recently created a storm condemning the arrest of former Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu and sat on a one-day deeksha as well.
