HYDERABAD: The Congress high command is mulling over whether to suspend former MP T Rajaiah from the party or not following the arrest of the leader in the case related to the suspicious death of his daughter-in-law and her three sons.

According to sources, the TPCC discussed on the pros and cons of suspending the leader. Though Rajaiah’s name was dropped from the Warangal byelection fray immediately, the TPCC took a guarded approach when it came to suspending the leader from the party.

A section of leaders were of the opinion that any hasty decision would cause damage to the party’s prospects as the former MP’s followers might work against the party, if the leader was suspended.

However, with the arrest of Rajaiah on Thursday night, the TPCC reportedly came to a conclusion that suspending the leader from the party would stop the opposition parties from taking up the issue as part of Warangal bypoll campaign.

‘’As he is arrested, primarily, it has been established his role in the incident. Suspending him from the party will not cause much damage to the party,’’ a leader opined.

The TPCC has reportedly asked the party high command to take a decision which is awaited.
