Reflecting the differences, Deputy Chief Minister Kadiam Srihari has skipped the function organized by Errabelli Dayakara Rao formally joining the ruling TRS today. Srihari and Errabelli were colleagues in TDP before joining TRS and hailed from the same Warangal district. Trying for a cover up his absence, Dayakar said Mr Srihari was busy in Warangal with election-related work and could not make it to the function.
Speaking on the occasion, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhara Rao said the joining of leaders from other parties into TRS should be seen in the context of political realignment of forces for the sake of development of the state. HE welcomed Mr Dayakar and his followers into the party.
