Telugu Desam Party suffered another setback in Telangana as its MLA from Qutbullapur Vivekanand Goud in the city has joined TRS today. He drove to Chief Miniser’s camp office today and formally joined the TRS along with his followers.
There is no alternative to TRS in Telangana and it was proved once again in the latest GHMC polls. I should become part of the development process and hence this decision, he said.
Sources said Mr Goud’s joining has been in the wings for quite a long time.
The MLA is said to have thought it fit to join TRS now to avoid anybody else to vie for TRS ticket in the next elections. He has also felt that there is no future in TDP as the party suffered a big jolt by getting just one seat in the GHMC polls.
