Hyderabad: While the Telangana Assembly Elections concluded five months back, MLAs are still keen to join TRS. In a major jolt to the Telangana Congress, three party MLAs have reportedly decided to join the TRS.
Sangareddy MLA T Jayaprakash Reddy alias Jagga Reddy, Bhadrachalam MLA Podem Veerayya, Bhupalpally MLA Gandra Venkataramana Reddy are all set to join TRS. According to sources, the three MLAs will be joining the TRS on May 24.
With these latest additions, the Congress will lose the position of Opposition in the Telangana Assembly. Uttam Kumar Reddy, Bhatti Vikramarka, Sridhar Babu, Komati Reddy Rajagopal Reddy, Rohit Reddy and Seethakka will be the only ones remaining in the Congress after the trio's exit. The number of TRS MLAs will reach 104 with the latest additions.
However, Congress Legislature Party leader Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka denied the defections while sources close to Mr Jayaprakash Reddy claimed that he was not switching parties adding that TRS leaders were trying to get them to join their party.
When quizzed on the same, Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee president N Uttam Kumar Reddy also denied the Congress MLAs defections further hoping that they won't leave the party.
