Nama is not so active for TDP. In this context, such speculation is becoming stronger.Nama has won from Khammam MP seat in the past on TDP ticket. But in the last election, the YSR Congress party candidate has defeated him. However, YSRCP MP Pongalatti extended his support to Telangana Rashtra Samithi. TDP party situation in Telangana is not so encouraging. Senior party leaders Motukupalli Narsimha commented that the party should be merged into the TRS. Nama also seems to be looking for other options.
Since Pongalatti got assurance from KCR over MP Khammam ticket, so doors are closed for Nama. While The Congress party has assured the former MP a ticket if he joins his party.
