"The Congress is interested only in Chiranjeevi and Chiranjeevi is interested only in a post for himself and has no time for us. Therefore, what future will we have in the Congress?" questioned one leader.
While TDP and YSR Congress are in a bid to woo party leaders to their side, it is likely that the leaders will severe their ties with Congress leader Chiranjeevi. The party leaders blamed Chiranjeevi for the situation.
"Even for an MLA, it is very difficult to get an appointment with Chiranjeevi. There have been occasions when MLAs had to wait for two days to meet Chiranjeevi," said sources.
"In many places, Congress leaders simply cold-shoulder those who came from PRP. Either the PRP leaders are ignored or treated as unwanted," said a MLA.
Reports reveal that the PRP leaders are already on their way out to join other party. It is also believed that PRP candidate A Srinivasulu has already met TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu last week.
