Lok Sabha Member Konda Vishweshwar Reddy Quits TRS Ahead Of Telangana Polls

Lok Sabha member Konda Vishweshwar Reddy quit Telangana Rashtra Samithi on Tuesday after he was "disappointed" with the party at various levels.

“I was forced into a position of contemplating leaving the party despite the fact that today TRS enjoys significant goodwill in the social circles that we are in," he said in a letter addressed to party president K Chandrasekhar Rao.

"I thought long and hard about this step before deciding to take this major decision and analysed the scenario bylisting my disappointments at various levels," Reddy, who represents the Chevella Lok Sabha constituency, said in the letter shared with the media.

In the letter, Reddy listed disappointments at five levels which include injustice to 'karyakarthas' (party workers) who worked for Telangana statehood, constituency, state and party. He said he would also resign from the Lok Sabha.

The assembly elections are scheduled to be held in Telangana on Dec. 7.
