Konda couple were part of YSRCP for a long time, but came out of the party after Jagan came out of jail and changed his stance on Telangana. The couple joined Congress, but remained in the back shadows for a long time, deciding now to join the TRS party. Konda Murali had a meeting with TPCC president Ponnala this morning. As he did not get any assurance on tickets for the couple from Warangal, the couple decided to shift to TRS, sources say.
