NDA to discuss joining TRS as political partner
Nalgonda, Andhra Pradesh Sep 17: National Democratic Alliance (NDA) Convenor George Fernandes today said the NDA would discuss the issue of joining the Telangana Rastra Samithi (TRS) as its political partner after the TRS withdraws its support to the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance(UPA) Government.
The TRS Chief and former Union Minister K Chandrasekhara Rao yesterday announced that the party will pull out of the UPA on September 23, after submitting a withdrawal letter to the President A P J Abdul Kalam on the same day.
Speaking to mediapersons here, on the occasion of 59th anniversary of 'Telangana Fredom struggle', Mr Fernandes said the NDA was supporting for the cause of separate Telagnana. The NDA would hold talks on joining the TRS, following their withdrawal from UPA, he added.
Alleging that the UPA was not implementing the promises made during the elections and deceived the TRS, as well as the people of Telagnana by not bifurcating Andhra Pradesh , he said the separate Telagnana movement was an inspiration to the people, who were fighting for smaller states in the country.
The UPA Government was scared to bifurcate the Telagnana from the State due to political lobbying, he alleged.
