For A Change, TRS MLA To Jump Into BJP?

Even after securing a good majority, TRS boss and CM KCR is not satisfied. So he pulled most of the Congress MLAs. With Congress and TDP MLAs on their side, TRS strength in the Assembly is nearly 110.

But for a change, a TRS MLA is all set to join BJP. This is seriously a big twist and major setback for KCR. The MLA is Shakeel from Nizamabad Bhodan constituency. Shakeel met Nizamabad MP Dharmapuri Aravind on Thursday and discussed the current political situations in the state. Aravind has asked the details of TRS MLAs who are upset for not getting cabinet berth. After the meeting, the Shakeel quietly left the pace without talking to the media. But reliable source say that in a week or two, the TRS MLA will join BJP.

This should be considered as a serious aspect as Shakeel is one of the close aides of former Nizamabad MP Kavitha. Also, he is the only MLA from the Muslim community in TRS and for obvious reasons, he expected a cabinet place. Unfortunately, he was not inducted and also with Kavitha losing, Shakeel stayed away from TRS party activities in the recent times.

Cashing this opportunity, BJP which is doing 'Operation Akarsh' in Telangana, called on Shakeel and held talks. Nizamabad MP Aravind who is very aggressive against TRS, negotiated well and convinced Shakeel to join BJP. Seems like the saffron plans are working.
