They also believed that the issues of Adivasis would be addressed under the leadership of Rao. Hence, they have decided to join TRS.

They further said they would quit their Assembly memberships and contest as TRS candidates, if necessary.

With the two MLAs quitting the party, the strength of Congress in the Assembly would be down to 17.
