Close on the heels of Danam Nagender, another Congress leader Mukesh Goud is all set to join the TRS bandwagon.Recently, Vikram Goud, son of Mukesh Goud had a meeting with Uttam Kumar Reddy and RC Kuntia. Vikram reportedly complained against the kind of treatment being meted out to his father who is an ex-Minister.
While Uttam and Kuntia managed to convince Vikram Goud for the moment, indications are that Mukesh Goud will switch loyalties to the TRS.Apparently, he has informed KCR about this and is waiting for a green signal from the ‘pink boss’.KCR, on the other hand, is treading cautiously. He wants to get the balance right as inducting the Congressmen should not upset the aspirations of the local TRS leaders.
Therefore, while there is a pretty long waiting list, priority is only being given to those with a cadre of their own and who can add value to the TRS instead of banking on the TRS’ strength.Exactly like what Raghuvaran says in the classic hit Shiva: Ee student leaders manaku balam avvali kaani mana balam meeda battakodadu (These student leaders should be a strength to us but not live on our strength).
