But with the growing anti incumbency against Congress party all over the country, sources say KCR is of the opinion that in case Congress cannot come to power at centre, then why take a political step which only favours short term.
It is in this context that KCR is often telling media that he will consider a proposal for merger only when Telangana bill is passed but reports say that during a brainstorming meeting at his Medal farm house KCR has explained the merits of not merging with Congress thereby hinting them that there is no use for them even if they leave TRS and join Congress.
