Somu Veerraju expressed his displeasure over elevation of Kanna Lakshminarayana as AP BJP President. AP BJP got divided into two groups after few BJP Loyalists and RSS Members came in support of the MLC.
Quickly, BJP Central Leadership swung into action to settle the matter. A respectable post was offered to Somu Veerraju to pacify him if the sources are to be believed. It was Amit Shah who intervened to say Group Wars would given an opportunity for TDP to weaken BJP. He seems to have assured Rajya Sabha Seat and Key Post if BJP forms the government in future.
In the statement issued by him, Somu Veerraju informed that he would abide by the decision of the party. He claims to be welcoming the appointment of Kanna as AP BJP Chief.
Veerraju appealed Leaders and Workers to work for strengthening the Party all over AP. He made it clear rift with Kanna is a creation of media.
