Scoffing at media hype over the likelihood of Jayaprada joining the Telugu Desam Party,  the film actress of yesteryears on Monday clarified that she was not keen on a comeback to Telugu Desam.

She claimed that she began her political  career with the TDP before joining the Samajwadi Party. The cine actress maintained  that she still got many well  wishers in her parent party, the TDP.

``And it was those 'friends' who met  me and welcome me and requested me to  join the party offering to mediate  between me and Chandrababu Naidu,’’  the MP said

Turning down speculations over her joining the TDP, Jayaprada said her past had always hounded her. She was frequently reminded of the many issues she had with Chandrababu Naidu and she could not 'forget' them overnight.

Sources say that, in fact, there were discussions between her and the TDP leaders. But if she decides to join the TDP, then she has to resign from her parliamentary seat, which she won on a Samajwadi party ticket.So, she is unlikely to join the TDP till 2014 and by that time, it would be too late for her and also the TDP.
