The Telangana Congress suffered another jolt as its MLC Kuchukulla Damodar Reddy has decided to join the ruling TRS on Saturday evening.
Many of Damodar Reddy's followers, Congress activists, will also join the TRS along with him.
Reddy was not happy with the Congress leadership for admitting BJP leader Nagam Janardhan Reddy, his rival in Nagarkurnool, into the party against his (Damodar Reddy's) wish. He openly opposed Nagam's admission into the Congress. After suffering the ignominy in silence for several weeks, Reddy decided to defect to the TRS, despite a few party leaders like D K Aruna dissuading him.
