Leader of Opposition K Jana Reddy on Thursday dismissed media reports that he was likely to quit the Congress party and might join the TRS.
Speaking to media persons at Gandhi Bhavan here, Jana Reddy asked media houses to cross-check the reports before taking them on air. He said TRS MP Vinod had called on him to handover an invitation for the book launch of Maharashtra Governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao. He said the media should not misinterpret the personal and professional relationship among the politicians.
Commenting on the decision of ex-PCC chief D Srinivas to quit Congress to join TRS, Jana Reddy said it was opportunistic politics. He said that the Congress have been witnessing such people since 1977 when many leaders joined the Janata Party. However, later all such leaders regretted their decision and came back. He said it was highly condemnable that Srinivas enjoyed the power and all benefits when Congress was in power and now he is joining the TRS to enjoy the same powers.
Jana Reddy said leaders who had lost the confidence of people are joining the TRS.
Leader of Opposition in Council Mohamemd Ali Shabbir, TPCC Working President Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka, former Deputy CM Damodar Rajanarasimha, former minister D Sridhar Babu and former MP Vithal Rao were also present.
