Hyderabad Jan 17 (): Vanteru Prathap Reddy is to give a jolt to the congress as he is set to join the TRS soon. Reddy who raised a banner of revolt on the TRS during the Assembly polls is likely to join it on Friday Jan 18. He was defeated in the polls as TRS President K Chandrasekhar Rao won the fray in the Assembly polls.
Vanteru, who is away from the congress affairs after the poll debacle, has decided to join the TRS which was reportedly confirmed by his son. Prathap Reddy is to join the ruling party in the presence of TRS boss and chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao on Friday evening.
With this the congress faces a severe jolt at the Gajwel segment. Prathap Reddy was defeated twice in 2014 polls and 2018 polls as KCR won the fray from the same segment.
