For the first time after 35 years of starting his career as a politician, Chandrababu wore the stole or 'colours' of Congress. Both he and Congress national president, Rahul Gandhi met dramatically at Khammam election rally yesterday. They shared the dias and Chandrababu accepted the Congress stole from an activist. It is ironic that Telugu Desam Party (TDP), that was founded on the basis of hatred for Congress by N.T.Rama Rao, shook hand with the same party. But is inevitable in the present circumstances, Chandrababu explained.
