Hyderabad: In a major blow to Telangana Congress, senior leader and MLC Damodar Reddy is set to leave the party for Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS). The stage is set for his shifting to the ruling party in the presence of Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao (KCR).
According to reports, Damodar Reddy will join the party along with many of his fans and party workers.
