TDP leader and party’s district general secretary Gouse Mohiuddin, who resigned from the party, joined the Congress on Thursday.
Mohiuddin was extended a warm welcome by Congress activists and party leaders including Guntur district Dongress President S Basava Punnayya, senior Congress MP Rayapati Sambasiva Rao and state transport minister K Laxmi Narayana at his residence in Krishnanagar.
The leader, who was associated with TDP since its formation in 1983, stepped down after the party denied him a Lok Sabha ticket.
TDP MLA from Tenali G Uma also quit the party after it nominated former technical education minister A Rajendra Prasad in the constituency. Uma who hails from a political family, was elected to the Andhra Pradesh Legislative assembly in 1999 but lost the election in 2004.
