Konda Surekha in Cong, Kadiam in TRS?

Warangal: Political scene is hotting up true to scorching heat in the summer, in the district with possible political migrations much early to the 2014 Assembly elections. Two parties which were facing the dissidence are YSR Congress Party and Telugu Desam Party. Dissidence came to fore in YSR CP with appointment of coordinators for various Assembly constituencies in the district. Konda Surekha and Cherukupalli Srinivas Reddy are the key politicians of the party and were instrumental in the appointments. Political pundits see differences exist between these leaders after the appointment of coordinators.
Though Konda couple were nominated as coordinators for Parkal (Konda Surekha) and Bhupalpalli (Konda Muralidhar Rao) from YSR CP, they were said to be unhappy with the appointments of other coordinators. Appointment of Lunavath Radha Venkanna for Mahbubabad, Banothu Sujatha Mangeela for Dornkal and Bojjapalli Rajaiah for Wardhannapet had become bone of contention. The speculation that Konda family was opposing these appointments and decided to move back to the Congress Party is creating sensation. Konda's game-plan is double edged as they want to checkmate their bête noir Gandra Venkatarama Reddy who represents Bhupalpalli as MLA. Gandra was eyeing for Parkal seat too as he is using the close contacts with the Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy for nomination of his wife, Gandra Jyothi from Parkal Assembly segment in the upcoming elections.
KCR's open invitation to Congress and TDP leaders to join TRS is bringing a big fish from TDP, Kadiam Srihari. As a shrewd politician he is thinking of his political future as TDP had nothing to offer in Telangana, he is eyeing for two options. One option is to contest as an MLA from Station Ghanapur and the second option is to contest as an MP from Warangal Parliamentary seat from TRS. He seems to be scared of ambivalent KCR as he might ditch him in the last minute if he joins TRS. His absence at crucial Babu padayatra climax at Vizag moved him away from TDP. He is in close touch with TRS senior leader Bowenpalli Vinod Kumar and wants to bargain with KCR further.
TDP is decimated further with Gangula Kamalakar joining TRS on April 26 and will face rough weather in Telangana districts with some more migrations to T movement party.A Earlier on the day the TDP district president A Baswa Reddy has also made a similar statement.
I'm not quitting TD: Kadiam
Warangal: Telugu Desam Party politburo member Kadiam Srihari has made it clear that he was not going to quit the party. A Referring to the news reports wherein it was reported that he was looking towards Telangana Rashtra Samithi, he said all such reports were false and there was no truth in them.

A "I am not going anywhere. All the reports appeared in news papers and television channels were false" he asserted.
