The Congress is receiving one jolt after the other ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) general secretary Krishank Reddy is the latest high-profile Congress leader (apart from the MLAs) likely to join the TRS.
Reddy told the media that he was put to considerable loss in the Congress both financially and career-wise. The Congress was ignoring the active leaders and instead giving tickets to those who were defeated just three months back, he said, and named Revanth Reddy who was caught in the vote-for-note case and who had also lost the Kodangal Assembly seat election, and some others like him who were defeated just recently.
"I will send my resignation to AICC chief Rahul Gandhi and announce my future plan," he said.
Senior Congress leader from Adilabad Naresh Jadav too quit the party protesting the decision of the party to field Ramesh Rathod for the Adilabad Lok Sabha seat. Jadhav contested for the same seat in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. However the party high command preferred Rathod to him for the ticket this time. This has hurt the senior leader and prompted him to quit the party.
Another party leader from Adilabad, Soyam Babu Rao, is also planning to quit the party. He had contested for the Boath Assembly seat in the recent Assembly elections and lost.
