Telangana Congress MPs Manda Jaganandham, G Vivekananda and S Rajaiah, along with senior leader K Kesava Rao, have met TRS president K Chandrasekhara Rao and assured him of joining the TRS in the first week of June if the Congress hIgh command fails to make a statement by May 30 on creation of Telangana state.

The four Telangana Congress leaders, who met KCR at the latter’s farmhouse in Jagdevpur mandal in Medak district on Monday, were asked by the TRS leader to quit the Congress and join the TRS by May 30. But they  explained to the TRS chief that they had given an ultimatum to the party high command that they would resign from the Congress if it failed to deliver on its promise by May 30 and it would not therefore be proper on their part to quit before the deadline,  sources said.

It is also learnt that the issue of induction of former TDP leader Kadiam Srihari into the TRS and the promise to field him for the Warangal Lok Sabha seat in the 2014 elections was raised by sitting Warangal MP S Rajaiah who wondered what would he gain by joining the TRS. KCR asked Rajaiah to leave his political future to him, assuring to take care of it, the sources added. The farmhouse meeting assumed significance with speculation being rife among the party circles that the three MPs were ready to leave the Congress anytime.

However Congress leaders declined to meet mediapersons and  gave them a slip while leaving the rendezvous.
