Ex-Congress leader Kaushik Reddy joins TRS

Former TPCC secretary Padi Kaushik Reddy, who resigned from the Congress party, has joined the TRS party in the presence of Telangana Chief Minister and TRS chief KCR.

Speaking on the occasion, KCR said that Kaushik Reddy’s father worked with him when the pink flag was hoisted in 2001. The CM reminded that Chennareddy had taken the Telangana movement to the flagship level in 1969.

The CM said that 11 MPs have won 14 MP seats in Telangana on that day. However, he reminded that Telangana was not formed back then because the harsh central rulers did not respect public opinion. KCR revealed he led the movement with the advice of Professor Jayashankar. He also added that no one would be in power forever and that it is not a monarchical system.

Kaushik Reddy on July 13 submitted his resignation to the AICC President Sonia Gandhi after an audio clip claiming the TRS party’s ticket for the Huzurabad by-election has been confirmed to Mr Reddy.
