In another blow to the Telugu Desam Party in Telangana, MLA from Parkal Challa Dharma Reddy left the party to don the ruling pink. Chief Minister of Telangana K Chandrasekhara Rao welcomed the MLA in the Telangana Rashtra Samiti. He joined the pink force along with his hundreds of supporters.
TRS through a secret mission has been attempting to weaken the Opposition in the state by adoring their MLAs to join the ruling party. A large pool of leaders floated from Congress, TDP and YSRSCP to the ruling TRS.
KCR and TRS had to face severe criticism for their approach but it did not made them stop from attracting the Opposition leaders.
