HYDERABAD: Giving a jolt to the TDP before elections to the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC), the party’s Ibrahimpatnam MLA Manchi Reddy Kishan Reddy on Wednesday announced his decision to join the ruling TRS for ‘development of his constituency.’

Kishan Reddy, who held a meeting with his supporters on Tuesday, to elicit popular opinion on his joining TRS, decided to switch loyalties to the ruling party. He met chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao on Wednesday and will be joining the TRS on Friday, the day on which the party will be holding its plenary. ‘’I took this decision for the development of my constituency. The CM had assured to take up certain works in my constitueny,’’ Kishan Reddy said after emerging out of the meeting. The TRS had been trying to attract TDP MLAs from Greater Hyderabad into its fold to ensure that it makes a strong pitch for the GHMC elections. TRS had already managed to attract Talasani Srinivas Yadav and Teegala Krishna Reddy into its fold and is also making efforts to bring in two more TDP MLAs into its fold.

The announcement of Kishan Reddy to join TRS came a day ahead of the TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu’s visit to Mahbubnagar district. The TDP is trying to regain its lost hold in the state and Naidu and his son Lokesh are planning to tour various districts in the coming days. Meanwhile, Sircilla former MLA and district cooperative bank vice-chairman Mohan Reddy and several others too joined TRS on Wednesday.
