Rahul Gandhi's clarification on alliance with TRS:- Congress leader Rahul Gandhi issued a clarification about Congress having an alliance with the leading TRS in the state. Rahul Gandhi slammed the rumors and ruled them out about the alliance. He said that KCR cheated the people and looted the state. Rahul Gandhi also asked the Congress leaders not to raise the issue of alliance in the state. "There would be a straight fight between Congress and TRS in Telangana and we are going to defeat the ruling party in the state. Congress is the lone alternative to the ruling party in Telangana but BJP is claiming to take the opposition party's place" told Rahul Gandhi.
The rumors of the alliance between Congress and TRS started after the political strategist Prashant Kishor started talks with the Congress leadership and Telangana Chief Minister KCR at the same time. BJP leaders kept spreading the rumour about the alliance of Congress and TRS in Telangana. Rahul Gandhi said that BJP made the best use of this and continued to spread the rumor. Prashant Kishor is not associated with Congress but he is in touch with the leadership of TRS. Telangana IT Minister KTR recently confirmed that Prashant Kishor met KCR in his Eravelli farmhouse. For now, Congress will continue to contest without any alliance in Telangana confirmed Rahul Gandhi.
