Seat-sharing talks: TRS chief leaves for Delhi

By Our Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD, MARCH 18. The Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) president, K. Chandrasekhar Rao, and the senior party leader, A. Narendra, left for Delhi on Thursday evening to continue talks on seat sharing with the Congress high command.

The Congress and the TRS have identified 30 out of 42 Assembly seats to be contested by the latter during negotiations held so far between the two parties locally. Regarding the remaining 12 seats claimed by TRS, the identification was left to the Congress high command as the State leadership did not hazard owning responsibility for deprivation of tickets to aspirants from these seats.

Sources said there were sitting Congress MLAs and aspirants who staked a strong claim for tickets in the 12 seats claimed by TRS. It was thought safe to pass the buck on to the Congress high command in the allotment of these controversial seats to TRS.

The Congress and TRS talks at Delhi are also expected to resolve the issue of allotment of Lok Sabha seats to the TRS. While the Congress has claimed that five seats were given to its alliance partner, the latter declared that it got one more in the deal that was struck.

Several ticket aspirants of the Congress and the TRS also left for Delhi by the flight, which the TRS president and Mr. Narendra took.
