HYDERABAD: The ruling TRS leadership has reportedly identified some more influential leaders of Congress and TDP from weaker sections in order to woo them into the party fold in the run-up to the 2019  polls.It is learnt that the pink party wants to strengthen its position in Assembly segments where it is weak, particularly in Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) area and Southern Telangana. Hence, according to sources, the party leadership has prepared a list of strong  leaders who can improve the ruling party’s electoral prospects in the 2019  polls. 

Against this backdrop, Congress leader and former minister M Mukesh Goud, whose name is being considered as next in line to quit Congress to join TRS, on Friday said Danam Nagender and he earlier planned to join TRS by organising a public meeting with BCs.“But, Nagender hurriedly quit Congress,” he remarked, while speaking to a vernacular TV channel, soon after Nagender’s resignation.

Meanwhile, Congress seniors like TPCC chief N Uttam Kumar Reddy, V Hanumantha Rao, Mohammed Ali Shabbir met at the residence of Leader of Opposition K Jana Reddy on Friday and discussed  on how to effectively counter the strategies of TRS and keep their party’s flock together. Later, VHR said, “We are making all possible efforts to stop Nagender from quitting Congress. Being a leader from BCs, I can firmly say that no party gives priority to weaker sections except Congress.”
