Earlier, just after his suspension, Singh had told the media that he was confident that the BJP would revoke his suspension soon, and would contest the Telangana Assembly polls on BJP ticket.
It’s a huge blow to the yellow party in Telangana as it is seeking to contest a majority of seats in the upcoming elections.
He was speaking to reporters about the murder of Rahul Singh, a gym trainer who was stabbed to death three days ago at Attapur by four unidentified individuals.
It is learnt that Raja Singh is firm on contesting from the same Assembly segment for the third time, despite being offered the Lok Sabha ticket from Zaheerabad.
The party is reportedly planning to field former Minister Mukesh Goud’s son Vikram Goud from Goshamahal in the Assembly elections, which are scheduled to be held later this year.
