Hyderabad, Feb 26 (UNI) Telangana Rastra Samithi (TRS), an ally of the Congress-led UPA Government, is likey to withdraw its support to the government after the Budget session.

According to the highly placed party sources here, TRS President and Union Minister K Chandrasekhara Rao and Senior Leader and Union Minister A Narendra had decided to quit the government at the earliest.

They took the decision after discussing the issue of separate Telangana which was allegedly being neglected by the Centre despite the TRS exerting pressure persistenly on the UPA Government.

The TRS would quit the government if it did not introduce a bill for Telangana in Parliament during the Budget session, the leaders are reported to have informed during the party executive.

The TRS, which has five MPs in Lok Sabha, was also preparing ground for forging alliance with like-minded parties, including the BJP which was the only national party supporting the formation of smaller states.

The sources said Mr Rao had been consulting the BJP leaders regularly on Telangana issue and an alliance between them could materialise at the earliest.
