Operation Akarsh’ is back on track. Many of Congress leaders, MLCs are all set to cross over to TRS. A day after Congress MLC Akula Lalitha and Santosh met KCR, political equations have taken place at a swift pace.
Congress MLCs MS Prabhakar Rao, Damodar Reddy, Akula Lalitha, Santosh Kumar met Chairman Swamy Goud and presented him a letter seeking merger of Congress LP into TRS LP in the council.
Shocked by this unprecedented development, TPCC chief Uttam Kumar Reddy and Telangana legislative council leader Shabbir Ali have rushed to meet Chairman Swamy Goud. Uttam and Shabbir have asked the Chairman to take appropriate action against the defected MLCs.
They have asked Swamy Goud not to consider the letter of Congress MLCs seeking the merger of Congress legislature party in Council into TRS Legislature Party in Council. Uttam and Shabbir said that the letter is invalid as CLP can’t be held without the approval of TPCC chief Uttam Kumar Reddy.
Talking to media, Shabbir Ali has questioned why only notices has been sent to TRS MLCs Bhupathi Reddy, Yadava Reddy, Konda Murali, Ramulu Nayak who worked against their party. He demanded that necessary action should be taken against defected Congress MLCs with immediate effect. He said Congress party is a national party and has a constitution, guidelines. He said just four MLCs can’t represent the party and can’t ask for the merger into TRS legislature party.
