TRS chief thanks Sonia, mulls merger with Cong
Rao said that he had met the Congress chief just to thank her for the Telangana decision.
‘No politics was discussed,’ Rao said after his meeting with Gandhi although he maintained, at the same time, that the All India Congress Committee (AICC) general secretary in-charge of Andhra Pradesh, Digvijaya Singh would be in touch with him.
A delegation of Congress leaders from Telangana had on Friday met Gandhi following which union minister Sarvey Satyanarayana had said that Congress was expecting that TRS would join it.
‘We are expecting TRS to join us. Rao has been saying that he would work with Gandhi if Telangana was created. Now that the Bill has been passed, there is no reason for him to continue as a separate entity,’ Satyanarayana had said.
Telangana is all set to become the 29th Indian state with Parliament on Thursday approving the Bill to bifurcate Andhra Pradesh for the purpose.
