Former Ministers Danam Nagender and Mukesh Goud quitting the Congress came as a jolt for party high command. The TRS had succeeded in convincing Danam to join their party as he was not happy after he was removed from the President post of Greater Hyderabad. It is learnt that Danam had expected Telangana Congress Working President post but party leadership did not consider him. TRS party sources say MIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi had mediated between the TRS and Danam. Moreover, Danam was angry for giving AICC Secretary post to MLA Sampath, who was junior to him.
