HYDERABAD: The TRS is all likely to give another blow to the TTDP before the byelections to Warangal Lok sabha seat.

TDP Rajya Sabha MP and senior leader Gundu Sudha Rani, who hails from Warangal district, will join the TRS on October 29, sources in the TRS said.

The pink party has been holding a series of discussions with the MP since the past few months and finally managed to convince her to join the party, sources said. Sudha Rani’s tenure as MP will end in July next year.

With the TDP facing tough time in Telangana, the MP weighed the option of shifting loyalties to the TRS while her tenure as MP is still there hoping that she might get a post in some corporation or a nominated post which are likely to be filled sooner or later by the TRS.

Sudha Rani will join TRS on October 29 and on the same day, the pink party will announce its candidate for the Warangal byelection, sources said.

Sudha Rani’s exit from TDP will have an impact on the party as she hails from BC community and she had considerable hold over party cadre in the district.

Meanwhile, sources said the TRS is also trying to rope in senior Congress leader from Hyderabad and former minister Danam Nagender into its fold before the elections to the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC).
