Telangana Political Joint Action Committee headed by Professor Kodandaram has decided to form a new political party with the name 'Telangana Jana Samithi'. The agenda of the party would be to resolve the problems of unemployment persons and farmers in the state. If reports are to be believed true, then Professor Kodandaram will be contesting from Mancherial constituency in Adilabad district. Mancherial is his own constituency, so he is likely to contest from this constituency in the upcoming General Election. He is also the party President.
