Congress MLA Akula Rajender has dismissed reports in a section of the media that he was planning to join the YSRCP.
In a statement here on Tuesday, he said though he was a fan of the late Chief Minister Dr. Y S Rajasekhara Reddy, he wished to remain in the Congress and work for fulfillment of the ideals of the late leader. He said the newspaper should have taken his view before writing the report. Stating that he would remain in the Congress party, he said there was no question of his defection. (NSS)
