James Edwin Warangal: The rumours are making rounds about Warangal MP Siricilla Rajaiah's possible crossing fence. In the wake of the reports in news channels and newspapers about the open offer given by Telangana Rashtra Samithi chief K Chandrasekhar Rao to Telangana legislators; the MP was said to be getting ready to jump into TRS. The MP who served as Zilla Panchayat Chief Executive Officer has joined politics in 2009. He has actively been working for the cause of Telangana and often went loud against the party high command on the statehood issue. He also criticised of speaking TRS language by several Congressmen who were not aggressive in the approach towards the statehood cause. The statement by Rajaiah has on Monday led to hotter debates in the public domain here. Supporting the rumours, he said 'I will have to follow the public mood'. Sources close to the leader informed that he MP has been inclined towards TRS in hoping to win in 2014 elections, though he was denying reports of joining TRS. A political analyst and retired professor Kurapati Venkata Narayana noted, by shifting their political allegiance the leaders could not achieve statehood. "The MP's rumoured move could be an outcome of his apprehensions regarding 2014 elections" he said pointing out at MP Rajaiah's inclination towards TRS. "But the public are clever they would reject such persons" he added. Until the now it was the same TRS leadership that has been calling the Congress legislators as traitors, he said adding "How could someone invite traitors into their own party and again impose their leadership on the public". Moreover the Congress MPs being in ruling party have miserably failed to move the statehood issue towards its logical conclusion. They could not put pressure on their party high command regarding the issue. What could they do by joining an opposition party like TRS., he posed.Prof. Narayana has taken strong exception to the TRS' party chief K Chandrasekhar Rao's offer to Telangana legislators. "It seems TRS leadership is not able to find suitable candidates to field in the next elections", he opined. "There is strong separate Telangana sentiment, but the voters also consider the character of the leaders while voting" Prof. Narayana averred. He warned the TRS leadership to remember post 2004 elections experience. The TRS lost its ground in the district in 2009 though it won six MLA seats in 2004 elections.
