Telangana CM and TRS Supremo KCR's Operation Akarsh has got a huge boost to the party in the form of TDP MP Malla Reddy and Congress party's leaders from Nalgonda, the Komatireddy Brothers, who are set to join TRS. While Congress' Nalgonda MLA Komatireddy Venkat Reddy and his MLC brother Rajagopal Reddy are set to join TRS on June 6th, TDP MP and popular educationist Malla Reddy will don the pink flag on June 2nd.
Malla Reddy joining TRS is not a surprise. Over the last one year, he has been singing praises about KCR's governance and even hailed him as the god of Telangana people. Malla Reddy's defection is a severe death blow to T-TDP, which has already lost 12 of its MLAs to TRS. On the other hand, Komatireddy Brothers case is a surprise. While KCR and even KTR succeeded in convincing Komatireddy Venkat Reddy to join TRS before KTR left for America, his brother Komatireddy Rajagopal Reddy was hell bent on staying in Congress, but surprisingly gave his nod ultimately.
