Hyderabad, May 30 : Telangana Rashtra Samithi president K Chandrasekhar Rao on Thursday hailed the decision of Congress MPs G Vivek and Manda Jagannatham and former PCC president K Keshav Rao to join the Telangana Rashtra Samithi.
Talking to reporters after meeting Peddapali MP Vivek at latter’s residence, KCR said that three Congress leaders have tried hard to exert pressure on UPA to take a favourable decision on Telangana State. However, he said that the Congress High Command did not react favourably to the MPs demand.
KCR clarified that the Congress leaders were not joining the TRS for political gains but their sole intention is to achieve statehood for the Telangana region. Describing their decision as historic, he predicted several other leaders too would join the statehood movement soon. He said that the entry of two Congress MPs and KK would give the strength of thousand elephants to the TRS party.
The TRS chief appealed to all leaders from the Telangana region to unite and achieve political power in order to realise the dream of formation of separate Telangana State. He confirmed that the Congress leaders would formally join the TRS in a public meeting to be held on June 2 at Nizam College Grounds in Hyderabad. INN
