Hyderabad: In a big jolt to the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) in the context to the upcoming Assembly elections, Chevella MP Konda Vishweshwar Reddy resigned from the party. The Parliamentarian, in a letter to the party, sent out a message saying he would like to quit the party.

Earlier in the week, speculation was rife that Konda Vishweshwar Reddy and Mahabubabad MP Sitaram Naik, who also is with the TRS, were set to join the Congress after Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) working president Revanth Reddy in a media meeting predicted such a move. However, Revanth did not mention the names of the TRS MPs. Sitaram Naik refuted the news of his resignation to TRS.

Adding fuel to the rumour, Vishweshwar Reddy hinted that the TRS did not stand a chance to win any of the seven Assembly seats in Chevella Loksabha Segment. With the latest development, it should be seen as to who the other TRS MP would be to leave the party.

Meanwhile, sources say that the Chevella MP will hold a press conference tomorrow. In all likelihood, he will join the Congress on November 23 in presence of senior Congress leader Sonia Gandhi, who will address a meeting at Medchal in Hyderabad outskirts.
