It is another shocker for Congress as its party MLA Gandra Venkataramana Reddy has joined TRS. He was elected from Bhupalapally constituency to the Assembly in the 2018 General Election. His wife Gandra Jyoti has also announced their allegiance to the ruling party. Speaking to the media persons, Venkataramana Reddy said that he has decided to extend support to Chief Minister KCR due to the latter's dedication to Telangana in terms of various welfare and development activities. He said his constituency people are more important than the post.
