Telugu Desam party has further weakened with another Telangana MLA quitting over the ambiguous stand of Chandra Babu Naidu over Telangana. Gampa Goverdhan, MLA from Kamareddy constituency of Nizamabad district decided to quit TDP and join Telangana Rashtra Samithi.
Mr. Goverdhan is said to be unhappy with the stand taken by Chandra Babu and was planning to quit TDP from several months.
It was the suicide of a youngster named Kareem, who jumped in front of a running train, for Telangana, that has provoked the TDP MLA to take a decision immediately.
It is being speculated in media circles that 10 more TDP MLAs are also planning to defect from TDP to Telangana Rashtra Samithi.
