TDP may contest 12 Assembly seats in Telangana region

The Telugu Desam Party Thursday said it would contest all the 12 Assembly seats in the Telangana region where by-elections are due shortly.



Hyderabad: The Telugu Desam Party Thursday said it would contest all the 12 Assembly seats in the Telangana region where by-elections are due shortly.

"The predominant opinion in our party is in favour of contesting the by-elections. I will hold further round of talks with the party`s lower rung leaders and take a final
decision in the next few days," TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu told reporters here.

By-elections are likely to be held for the 12 Assembly seats in Telangana region next month as the process has to be completed before August.
The by-elections have been necessitated due to the resignation of 10 TRS MLAs and one MLA each of TDP and BJP over the separate statehood issue. TDP MLA Ch Ramesh, who resigned from his post, subsequently quit the party and joined the TRS.
