Hyderabad: BJP is all set to cause more trouble to the Congress party (GOP) even as its MLAs are deserting to join the TRS.
According to BJP sources, while the sitting Congress MLAs are joining the TRS, the BJP is keeping in touch with several Congress leaders and offering party ticket to enable them to contest from one or other constituency in Lok Sabha elections.
Speaking to The Hans India, a senior party leader said while the Congress is losing its sitting MLAs to the TRS, there is every possibility that the Grand Old Party would in all possibility be deprived of strong leaders as they are attracted to the BJP.
Following this, the party has decided to delay the announcement of candidate for seven Lok Sabha seats, expecting migration of more Congress leaders to the party , he added.
Adding, at least five Congress leaders and one from the TRS are keeping in touch with the BJP, the sources said.
Clarifying on this, State BJP president K Laxman confirmed without giving the number that "Several Congress leaders are in touch with the party and the second list of candidates is likely to be released on Saturday," he said.
