After the Union Parliament certified the formation of Telengana, the party which fought with all their might, have begun intense negotiation with the Indian National Congress to form an alliance for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.
It was Telengana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) chief K. Chandrasekhar Rao, who met with Congress Vice president Rahul Gandhi. However no details of the meeting are obtained but after the meeting KCR also had talks with congress President Smt. Sonia Gandhi and party general secretary Mr.Digvijay Singh.
Though TRS is not seeking to merge immediately with the Congress but speculations are there that the party may give a lion share of the 17 seats in the new state if the latter backs its supremo KCR for the post of chief minister. Even KCR has also indirectly consented to the speculation according to the reports obtained.
Political experts say that such a deal may help congress with a lion share of those seats but will go against the scheme of things for the national party which is more than 125 years old. It may back them nationally, but will undermine its original plan to be the dominant power in the newly formed state.
