TRS chief K.Chandra shekar Rao categorically accepted Vijayawada MP Lagadapati’s open challenge to contest from Hyderabad in 2014 election which would be taken as referendum in deciding the Hyderabad status.
Sources say, KCR has accepted Lagadapati’s challenge of contesting election to decide Hyderabad future. Basically, Hyderabad consists of educated voters who never fell in the influence of TRS right from the 2002 Hyderabad cooperation elections to recent 2009 general elections.
TRS party tried its level best to influence the people of Hyderabad with some special drives , but they were unsuccessful all the time. TRS party cadre are worried for KCR accepting Lagadapati challenge which might lead into loss of Hyderabad from Telangana (if declared).
