It may be recalled that KCR declared that he would wipe out TDP in Telangana. He threw the bait and was waiting to catch strong leaders of TDP, when Naidu struck.
Three top leaders of TRS announced their decision to leave the party and join TDP.
TRS state general secretary and former MP Chada Suresh Reddy, secretaries Dommati Sambaiah and Mekala Sarangapani announced their decision to quit the TRS and join the TDP. The three met Chandra Babu Naidu and got clearance.
Suresh Reddy submitted his resignation to TRS and KCR expelled him from the party in retaliation.
Party senior leaders are worried that three strong leaders of Warangal left the party at a time when the boss was making hectic efforts to attract strong leaders of other parties.
Reacting sharply to his expulsion Suresh Reddy lashed out at KCR and showered praises on the JAC chief Prof. Kodandaram. He said KCR was not at all interested in achieving the Telangana state and his main aim was collecting as much money as possible. He said KCR talks about Telangana movement only when he needed money and goes back to his farm house as soon as he collected it. He even said that KCR was trying to water down the movement under the JAC. He demanded to know why KCR had expelled him from the party. He made it clear that Telangana would be possible only through a committed leader like Prof. Kodandaram and not KCR.
