There were reports that KCR put forward merger proposal to Cong President Sonia Gandhi and even in front of the top leaders in the Core Committee along with the so called high command. He insisted that if Cong comes out some kind of unequivocal statement, that it will form Telangana then he is not averse to merger. However Cong did not respond favorably. All these developments dented the image of TRS as entire telanagana players started asking explanations from KCR.
Even Ramulamma, opposed her mentor KCR in full public gaze saying that she oppose the party merger with Cong tooth and nail and went hammer and tongs on Cong and its high command. It has to be seen what will be the reaction of KCR to her statements.
