Former MLA Nalla Odelu shocked the TRS party. He joined the Congress party in the presence of Revanth in Delhi. Odelu and his wife Bhagyalakshmi were welcomed by prominent leader Priyanka Gandhi by wearing a party scarf. After the accession, Revanth Reddy and Odelu spoke to the media.
Revanth Reddy said that the people of Telangana are rejecting the KCR rule. Odelu said the family was warmly welcomed by Priyanka Gandhi. Explained that they were guaranteed to be given due respect. He said that severe injustice had been done to women in Telangana and that the joint Adilabad district KCR had succumbed to corruption and government negligence, and around 2 lakh acres of Adilabad has been left without water due to the sidelining of the Pranahita-Chevella project. He said the development of backward Adilabad would be made possible only by Congress.
Odelu alleged, “I expected KCR to give me a special position, as he didn’t even give me a ticket in the last election. However, he ignored me. MLA Balka Suman tapped my phone and spied on my house.” He made it clear that he had left the TRS because of Suman’s anarchic actions. He said that he would join the Congress under the leadership of Sonia and Rahul under the leadership of Priyanka Gandhi. He said the Congress would work hard to strengthen itself. He explained that his wife had resigned as ZP chairperson.
Bhagyalakshmi alleged that despite being the ZDP chairperson, she was not given any powers in her region as per her position. She mentioned that Balka Suman always intervened in everything and caused trouble for them. She explained that he had to leave TRS and join the Congress out of grief of not being able to do any good for the people.
