It is well known that after the Lok Sabha elections, 12 Congress leaders have joined the TRS. Others have joined the BJP. The duo Konda Surekha, Konda Murali couple who are maintaining silence since Assembly election, are reportedly planning to join the BJP and become active again. The leaders who got defeated in the election are of the opinion that BJP is only alternative to TRS. However, it is likely that they will go into the BJP on the condition that Bhupalapalli MLA seats should be offered to them.
