TRS president K .Chandrasekhar Rao has come out with another statement on merging his party with Congress. Addressing party cadres during his visit to Siddipet which KCR had represented as an MLA in the past, KCR remarked that merging a party with anther party is not so easy and there shall be a very favourable atmosphere for the merger.
Interestingly, he further added that “had the Congress agreed for merger when TRS made an offer earlier, lives of 400 people could have been saved.” His final word on the subject was this: “If Telangana with no riders is made a reality, then we will think of merger.”
It may be recalled that KCR and other leaders of the party like Nayani Narasimha Reddy have been maintaining that “TRS will welcome Telangana if the capital of Hyderabad is given to it without any conditions.”
KCR blasted TDP chief Naidu for not replying to the GoM, being the leader of main opposition party. He said the real Chandrababu Naidu stands exposed now.
KCR was also not ready to give the credit of Telangana formation to the Congress either. According to KCR, Congress had no option but concede Telangana after a 1,000 people committed suicide and he put the blame squarely on Congress itself. KCR made his intentions clear once again when he said, contract workers in Telangana in government services will be regularized after the formation of the new state.
