Telangana Jana Samithi (TJS) founder Professor M Kodandaram today denied all news reports that had been claiming that his party would soon be merged with the Congress.
He said that there was not an iota of truth in the news reports talking about the alleged merger, and urged the people of Telangana not to believe such manufactured and false reports. He added that no discussions had been held between the leaders of the TJS and the Congress on the issue.
The leader said that the TJS would instead continue to fight by the side of the public on issues like podu lands, Krishna river water allocations, and fuel price hikes.
He stated that the TJS rank and file would "protect" the existence of the party but would be ready to work with any political party on pressing public issues.
Referring to the en masse removal of nurses hired on an outsourcing basis by the state government, Kodandaram termed the decision cruel and expressed his anger that the police had arrested the nurses who had tried to meet Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao at his camp office, Pragathi Bhavan.
He assured the people again that the TJS would not merge with any party, and would continue its fight against the "feudal and dictatorial rule" of CM KCR in Telangana.
