AICC general secretary Digvijay Singh on Wednesday hinted that a merger between the Congress and the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) was a matter of time.
Digvijay said that “TRS has indicated merger with the Congress.” He added details of the planned merger are being worked out.
Digvijay had earlier also hinted that the TRS – the party which was born on the cause of creation of Telangana – will merge with the Congress. He had said that the consultation process between the two parties was over.
The TRS had earlier, however, denied any such headway. Party chief K Chandrasekhar Rao had said that nothing was finalised so far on alliance or merger talks with the Congress.
The remarks came on a day when the Centre was likely to decide on the next government in Andhra Pradesh.
Sources added that state leaders Chiranjeevi and Kanna Lakshminarayana are leading the race for CM’s post.
