On Tuesday morning there were reports that Congress working president Revanth Reddy has held talks with Maheshwaram MLA Sabitha Indra Reddy and so she changed her mind. But by evening the equations have changed in favour of TRS.
Sabitha has reportedly decided to join TRS and most probably it might be tomorrow. Along with Sabitha her long Karthik Reddy will also join TRS and he is likely to get Chevella MP ticket. TRS since long is looking for a strong candidate to counter Konda Vishweshwar Reddy who defected the party before the assembly elections.
As per the sources, Telangana Congress has failed to negotiate with Sabitha and moreover she is also upset with the state leadership especially with TPCC chief Uttam Kumar Reddy. Adding to this, there are less chances of her son, Karthik Reddy getting Chevella MP ticket and with no other options before her, Sabitha eventually took the decision to quit Congress.
This is a huge blow for Congress just before Parliament elections.
