Hyderabad: TRS on Friday expressed solidarity with Congress MLA and former minister Komatireddy Venkata Reddy who has undertaken an indefinite fast in support of demand for separate Telangana state.

The Telugu Rashtra Samiti MLAs today met Venkata Reddy at Nalgonda, where he has been fasting since November 1, and expressed support to him.

Talking to reporters here before leaving for Nalgonda, TRS floor leader E Rajender claimed that the Congress government in the state has lost its majority following the recent desertion of three Congress MLAs who joined TRS.

"The Kiran Kumar Reddy government does not even have the strength to run the government. It should seek a confidence vote. Otherwise, a no-confidence motion will be moved and this government will be made to fall," he said.

The Congress had 155 members in the 294-member house. Its strength rose to 172 after the merger of Praja Rajaym.

However, the ruling party suffered a blow earlier with 23 MLAs loyal to Kadapa MP YS Jagan Mohan Reddy submitting their resignations.
