Congress leader Vanteru Prathap Reddy, who unsuccessfully contested against Telangana Chief Minister and TRS Party president K Chandrasekhar Rao twice from Gajwel Assembly constituency, has decided to join TRS. Reddy will join TRS in the presence of the Chief Minister in Hyderabad on Friday. Pratap Reddy has unsuccessfully contested thrice from Gajwel.
He contested as a TDPcandidate in 2009 and 2014 and as a Congress candidate in 2018. TRS had been asking Reddy to join TRS right from 2014. However, Pratap Reddy switched his loyalty from TDP to Congress in the recent elections.
