Upset with Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao for not allocating Khanapur Assembly constituency ticket, TRS leader Ramesh Rathod tendered resignation. He had joined the TRS a year ago from the TDP. Ramesh expected the TRS supremo would give him Khanapur ticket. But, KCR announced the name of sitting MLA Rekha Naik. Rathod has the political rivalry with Rekha Naik. Ramesh would join the Congress in the presence of AICC in-charge for Telangana R C Khuntia on Friday. He might contest for Khanapur constituency on Congress ticket.
