At a time when MLA-elects are defecting to the TRS following its landslide victory in the Telangana Assembly elections, the party is also witnessing defections from itself.
Three TRS leaders Ramulu Naik, Yadava Reddy and Bhupathi Reddy, who were denied party tickets for the Telangana Assembly elections, defected to the Congress. The TRS has already announced their suspension from the party, and is likely to file a complaint with the Telangana Legislative Council Chairman Swamy Goud seeking their disqualification from the Council. It is now the turn of the Council Chairman to take a call on it.
