"He wholeheartedly has accepted to join the TRS along with his supporters," said KTR. 

On his part, Reddy urged that KCR should be given a second term as Chief Minister to complete the development and welfare programmes initiated by TRS government. 

"KCR and I have worked together as members of Assembly from 1989," said Reddy adding that his decision to join the party comes after his realisation that the State is moving in the right direction.
