Rampur MP Jaya Prada on Saturday made it clear that she will take decision of joining the BJP or another political party only after consulting Amar Singh.
Jaya Prada, who is a second term Lok Sabha MP from Rampur in Uttar Pradesh, reportedly met BJP national president Nitin Gadkari a few days back.
"BJP may think about making me their candidate from Rampur, so far nothing officially conveyed to me," the actress turned politician said.
She further said: "Will only take final decision after talking to Amar Singh, I am getting offers from all parties.
"I respect Nitinji, Advaniji, Sushmaji, and I am happy that media is responding to these reports positively (of her joining BJP)."
Jaya Prada, who left the TDP, the party that served as a launch pad to her political career, in the early 2000 to join Amar Singh at the Samajwadi Party, is looking for an opportunity to revive her political fortune in Andhra Pradesh as well.
Meanwhile, Jaya Prada's political rival, Azam Khan said that he was not surprised her move to join the BJP.
Jayaprada also tried to mend fences with TDP president Chandrababu Naidu by saying she had never spoken ill of him during her visit to Tirupati in April.
