Hyderabad: Suspended TDP leader Nagam Janardhan Reddy is contemplating to resign from the state assembly next week as differences between him and the party have reportedly reached a point of no return.
“I am weighing the pros and cons of all available options to take forward the movement,” Nagam told TOI. Resignation from the TDP and assembly will earn him greater credibility among the people of Telangana, he feels.
With TDP planning to organise a Ranabheri every fortnight, Nagam wants to organise more Nagaras and resignation from the party will help in getting support of other pro-T parties, including the Telangana Political JAC.
However, it is not yet known whether other MLAs like K Harishwar Reddy, Jogi Ramanna and S Venugopalachari who have been supporting Nagam ever since he started organising the Telanagana Nagara independently, will also resign from the House and the party.
If Nagam resigns from the assembly, he would be the third T MLA from the party to quit. Ch Ramesh was the first who resigned in support of T state and later joined the TRS and won in the byelection. During the recent budget session of the assembly, another senior leader from Banswada, Pocharam Srinivas Reddy, resigned and also joined TRS. But Nagam is unlikely to join any party at this point of time.
Asked to comment about his future strategy, Nagam said that he would like to keep his cards close to his chest. This move is also seen as a counter strategy as the TDP proposes to issue a show cause notice to him before expelling him from the party. TOI
