Chiru PR for alliance or merger with Congress
Chiranjeevi, president of Praja Rajyam Party is in New Delhi on the invitation of Congress president Sonia Gandhi. He will hold talks with Veerappa Moily and Ahmed Patel before meeting party Chief Sonia Gandhi.
The Congress party is keen on forging a long term alliance with Chiranjeevi. With the sudden demise of YS Rajasekhar Reddy, there was void in the leadership in AP and Jagan is turning out to be a dissident.
With the 2014 elections in the sight, the Congress party in a bid to weaken the TDP, which is gaining ground after YSR’s death, the party favoured separate Telangana.
Not just the alliance, the Congress party, in the future is looking for merger of Praja Rajyam which will make the party stronger in Andhra area.
There was also talk that the TRS too will be merged with the Congress once separate Telangana is carved.
