On Wednesday, TRS leader KTR said that Telugu Desam, led by Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu, would be rendered irrelevant in 2019, post the Lok Sabha elections next year.
He added that TRS would win 16 of the total 17 Lok Sabha seats in the state.
Mr. Rao further stated, “Today, we have proved our worth in Telangana (by winning the Assembly elections) and I am very, very confident that we will also go back to Delhi again with 16 Members of Parliament from Telangana on TRS tickets.”
KTR added, “We are not merely trying to usurp the hot seat in Delhi. We have not been trying to bring about a coalition of political parties with the agenda of assuming office in Delhi. The intent is changing the narrative in Delhi.”
