Hyderabad. Oct 12 (Hydnow): All the hype around the merger of the YSR Telangana Party’s (YSRTP) with the congress appears to have fizzled out with Y.S Sharmila announcing on Thursday that her party would field candidates from all 119 constituencies in the forthcoming Telangana Assembly elections.
She herself would be contesting from the Palair constituency in the erstwhile Khammam district, she said, inviting leaders to file applications for party B forms.
Sharmila met Congress Parliamentary Party president Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi in New Delhi on August 31. After the meeting, she said that the merger was in the final stage. She also met Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister dK Shiva Kumar at a hotel in the city last month to discuss a few aspects of the merger. Apart from Shiva Kumar, former MP KVP Ramachandra Rao was also believed to have been supporting the merger of YSRTP with the Congress party.
However, all the plans appear to have fallen apart now, with Sharmila indicating that she had waited long enough and that she would go ahead on her own. The decision to this effect was taken after a party meeting here on Thursday. (Hydnow)
