Former actress and Rampur MP Jaya Prada has said that she has decided to come back to state politics. She has however said that she has not yet decided which party to join.

Jaya Prada has participated in a private programme here on Sunday. Speaking on the occasion, she said she had not yet taken decision on her future plans as elections were still far away.

Jaya Prada has earlier represented the TDP in Rajya Sabha. However, she has left the party because of her differences with the party chief Chandra Babu Naidu.

She has joined the Samajwadi Party and was elected to the Lok Sabha from the Rampur constituency of UP. However, as her mentor Amar Singh has diferred with the party chief Mulayam Singh and was later expelled from the party, Jaya Prada also fell out. She was also expelled from the SP. Though Amar Singh has launched a new party, it has flopped during the recent elections. Now she has no future in UP. With this there has been debate on her future plans. She has indicated that she was thinking of a come back to state politics on an earlier occasion also.

According to speculations, Jaya Prada has no chance of joining the Congress. She also cannot rejoin the TDP say some sources. However, she has recently stated that Chandra Babu Naidu was a great administrator, giving rise to speculations that she might return to TDP. However, sources say that there are strong indications that she might join the YSR Congress, as most of the TDP leaders were already joining the new party. It is being said that Jaya Prada was thinking of joining the YSR Congress because of the strong winds blowing in favor of that party.

Jaya Prada is however keeping her cards close to her heart. Whenever media asks her about her future plans, she has been replying that she could not talk about AP politics as of now as she represented UP and was engaged in politics of that state. Sources point out that she has been considering both the options of joining the TDP or the YSRCP.
